    I have been working at Halton Region full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work hours. Parking, cafeteria, nothing else.

    Cons

    Terrible and Toxic Environment. Read all reviews carefully before you apply. Unprofessional and poorly structured all over the Region. Employees bullied and scared by Management. Management unprofessional and underqualified on their current roles. Benefits such as pension, be prepared for significant deduction from every paycheque. Bureaucracy and favouritism, with boot lickers and brown nosers. If you want to gain public sector experience then gain it from somewhere else.

    I have been working at Halton Region full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary (decent but not great), benefits (adequate) , close to home, OMERS Pension Plan, 35-hr work week. That's about it.

    Cons

    The work environment is absolutely toxic. Every department and individual sections within departments seem to be looking out for themselves instead of working together and doing what is best for the organization. Leadership and long term visioning are pretty much non existent. It's all about putting out the latest 'fire' (often caused due to lack of foresight and long term visioning). There is no clear delineation of staff roles based on expertise which results in a free-for-all of poor quality work. Exceptional performers and subject area experts are ignored and a lot of unqualified staff are assigned key projects instead. This place is full of ego maniacs, bullying, nepotism and empire building as all the other reviews state.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Halton Region part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Hourly wage, only a few decent people working there. (Watch out for backstabbers and staff out to throw you under the bus for any little thing. Bunch of nasty women working there)

    Cons

    No gratitude towards staff from management. PSW and nurses are worked until they are burnt out. Cannot get time off when you ask for it. And management wonder why people call in sick all the time? Short staffed every day. Work the staff they do have to death. Poor morale, toxic work environment. Management always giving staff more tasks, more work to do without a simple “Thank you” to their front line workers. Managers & DOC hide in their offices, never offer to help when short staffed (heard they were not allowed too?) Upper man either have no clue what’s going on or don’t care.
