Working with the City of Albuquerque I was able to utilize my skills and learn additional skills. Everyone worked as a team and did their job well.
Street Maintenance Worker Level III (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – October 20, 2013
My work day started at 6:00 am gathering work orders and getting crews out in the field to complete the days work. I learned to assign work, use heavy equipment and learned the skills to complete the job. I work well with co-workers and gained respect from my crew. The hardest part of the job was explaining that I was not able to do additonal work for the general public on their property because of strict City rules. Working with the public and with my co-workers.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – September 24, 2016
Usually, sits in the cash box, greeting people, taking admission. I've learned how to properly answer questions, handle large crowds of people, enter data into elo systems. Co-workers are all around my age. The hardest part of my job is being alone for long periods of time. The work hours are very flexible.
Lieutenant, Southwest Area Command (Current Employee) – Southwest Area Command – September 10, 2016
My time spent as a member of the Albuquerque Police Department has been a rewarding experience. I have had the opportunity to work with great officers and lead great officers. Everyday at work presents exciting experiences and different challenges. The most enjoyable part of my job is being part of the team I lead.
Working with the city was very fun and educational. A typical day would be spending time playing and doing homework with children. I learned how to talk to kids and how to handle money with the money handling class.
Days were long, aviation management uninterested in the well being of employees. Co-supervisors were great, always willing to help out when needed and always made sure shifts were covered. Former manager was tough but always had the absolute best in mind for the department. He expected the very best but created an atmosphere where you wanted to produce the very best. I've learned that the saying is true "people don't quit jobs, they quit bosses", under different management I would love to return to my former position. I loved the pace and the fact that you just never knew what was going to happen day to day. However that could sometimes be the down side as well.
Benefits, free gym
no breaks (for supervisors), no support from upper managment
Lifeguard (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – April 3, 2016
Lifeguards that work for the city should be payed more then people who work at fast food but we ant. Co workers are great but nobody likes the pay. When working as a lifeguard you have to know so many things but you are payed the same amount as a fast food worker
I loved working with the children, got attached and kind of miss it. The children always drew me pictures or talked to me about their day, it was exciting and fun. One day we were playing dodgeball, I had thrown the ball and it smacked one of the kids in the head, we laughed about it all day. It was fun to work with the kids, I learned to be patient and fun. Management was good, always answering your questions. I had cool co-workers, we got along very well. The hardest part is to watch what you say around the children. I love playing with the children.

This job was a great job right out of high school. I work as an assistant to the Marketing Manager. I worked with computers on a daily basis, filing, creating reports, responding to COA residents, etc. I also started my own project called the Summer Beautification Project. This was a volunteer based project that sought out and restored neighborhoods in need of cleaning and beautification. I also work hands on with elementary schools in order to educate their youth about recycling. My department was small but my team was reliable and easy going.
Outdoor Pool Supervisor (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – June 18, 2015
cabq is the city of albuquerque and is a governemental organization that employs about 5k people in the metropolitan area of albuquerque. It is the staple of albuquerques economy and is pretty gotham. There are plenty of batmen and batwomen trying to change the culture of complacencty but the old guard still holds the reigns and does not wish to power struggle to move the rusted gears.
