A Good Old Boy Place
Deputy Director of Emergnecy Managment (Former Employee), BaytownMarch 12, 2014
Pros: state retirement
Cons: as mentioned above.
If you're not a Good Old Boy and friends with the Emergency Management Director, The Assistant City Manager or finance Director you won't fit it. The Emergency Management Director claims to have a BS or BA but know one has ever seen his transcripts. That's probably why he is against having his AEM or CEM credential.

Secure job positions and great benefits.
Recreation Specialist (Current Employee), Baytown, TXFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: least desirable position within the department
The Recreation Specialist Position for the City of Baytown is a secure position that offers great benefits, however there is no opportunity for advancement.

This position consists of greeting all customers who walk in as well as answering phone calls regarding facility rentals and special events. This position is also mainly responsible for planning – more... and coordinating special events.

Communication, computer, and cash handling skills are a must for this position. Job tasks are often interrupted by customer walk-ins and calls, so organization and time-management are a must as well. One of the most undesirable tasks of this position is working with upset or undesirable customers.

The office personnel in the department of this position are fun, religious, and enjoyable people, however on a day-to-day basis, the office is usually very quiet among co-workers. Management is very laid-back and understanding. There is absolutely no micromanagement. The department as a whole is presented as a team, however there is strict job distinction/division within the office, and the position of the recreation specialist is the least desirable position. – less

Understaffed, long hours, civilian supervisors not always the best.
Officer (Former Employee), JailMarch 23, 2013
Pros: great experience, ok pay, plenty of work.
Cons: no breaks, poor civilian leader ship, quick to get rid of people.
Despite the poor civilian supervisors, the job had a lot of great experience for a person trying to learn about police work. Shifts were always understaffed which made it hard to take time off. Supervisors don't communicate when something is wrong and needs to be corrected. Instead they spent their time as the eyes and ears of the police supervisor, – more... but not giving insight or direction to make the job better.

Most of the jailers want to be cops, or are Baytown officers rejected from the FTO program. The wanna be officers where the supervisors and don't like the former officers. – less

Customer Service Representitive (Current Employee), Baytown, TXJuly 24, 2012
I've worked with the City of Baytown for a year and a half. The position is great, the management leaves something to be desired. I have learned a lot about customer service and have had the opportunity to cross train on some other positions.
