Working for the City of Ann Arbor was a great experience
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIApril 3, 2016
A typical work day at the City flies by, we always stayed busy. I learned multiple things that I can use throughout the rest of my life. My supervisors were awesome and very organized. My coworkers were very helpful, we always worked as a team. A job is a job I don't consider any part of it being hard. The most enjoyable part of the job was the set schedule.

Going down the drain...
Water Utility Technician (Former Employee) –  City of Ann Arbor, MINovember 3, 2015
Ann Arbor is suppose to be a progressive town, however the people that work for it are bigoted, self-righteous, and selfish. Benefits are drying up. The union is useless. Management looks out only for themselves. Morale is slowly dwindling. Stay as far away as you can from this place!!
Pros
Pay
Cons
Work culture, management, no personal growth, low morale

The most rewarding outdoor job I have ever had.
Groundskeeper (Former Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIFebruary 2, 2015
Getting up early is tough, filling divots for nearly 8 hours a day can be lonely and draining. However, putting in the work is worth it, because the golf course looks beautiful when you keep up the effort. Golfers will sincerely thank you for your effort, and the time spent outdoors can be quite refreshing.
Pros
nature, sunshine, autonomy, golf carts, free fountain drinks, occasional work parties.
Cons
weather, getting dirty, some manual labor
