Secure job positions and great 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 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.
