Pros: good hours, decent benefits.
Cons: poor management, bad attitudes, too many "cliques", hard work, mediocre pay.
The hours and benefits were great, the work was hard and physical but made you feel good at the end of each day for that you were a major factor in keeping the city clean. The residents were nice and loved seeing the garbage men in the neighborhood, as many provided water and/or refreshments. A four day workweek with a three day weekend...now the bad...MANAGEMENT. – more... Lack of true leadership throughout the entire city govt, too many "cliques" and favoratism and high turnovers in management(caused low morale amongst workers and staff). Poorly conditioned equipment and city workers fought 12yrs just to get a .46ct raise! If you're able to avoid drama and can work hard and deal with bad attitude having co-workers/mgmt then this is for you. They won't fire you because its a job a lot of people refuse to do. – less
