Productive, Creative mindset, and fun.
Water Sports Instructor (Former Employee), Boulder Reservoir, 5565 51st St, Boulder, CO 80301June 18, 2014
Pros: cultivation of innovative ideas that can be applied to anything in particular.
Cons: struggle of coming up with tangible and workable ideas.
A typical day at work starts with the cultivation of innovative ideas that synthesize knowledge from juxtaposing and related fields and applying them to the task at hand. Next is the communication of the idea through diagrams, renderings, drawings, and verbal conveyance. Visually, the information is organized and easily understood.

Good Summer Job
Parks & Recreation Cashier (Seasonal) (Former Employee), Boulder, COMay 1, 2014
Must be able to work well with customers and be able to multitask. Must be prepared to deal with unhappy customers and know how to problem solve. For the most part you are on your own with occasional check-ups by the management.

I think that the City of Boulder is an excellent place to work.
Operations Technician (Former Employee), Boulder, COMarch 31, 2014
I think that the City of Boulder is an excellent place to work due largely to the quality of people who are in management positions. I've worked at quite a few jobs in my life, and I've come to appreciate when an employer emphasizes good character, fairness, hard work, coopertion and fun. If the pay is slightly lower than I feel it should be, I understand – more... because the city of Boulder is on a fairly tight budget and I feel they do pretty well with the budget they have. – less

Various Positions (Former Employee), Boulder, ColoradoJune 15, 2013
Pros: bus pass; easy commute

Excellent work environment
Flatirons Golf Course Operations (Current Employee), Boulder, COJanuary 7, 2013
Pros: free golf, wonderful co-workers, ability to take non-scheduled breaks
Cons: weather-dependency impacts hours, frozen wages
My responsibilities included providing excellent customer service in the pro shop by greeting guests, answering phones, data entry, cashiering and running the golf course on time. Opening and closing the golf course alone has been trusted to me, and I also took care of any necessary outdoor work such as range-picking, cart washing, and on-course ranger – more... duties to maintain pace of play.

I learned the most about customer service and how to maintain a professional demeanor even when stress levels are high. I've worked my way up to a co-manager position, and all of my co-workers are helpful, knowledgeable, and fun to work with.

The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the regular players and sharing a laugh or two about their round afterwards. Saturdays and Sundays in our peak-season are by far the hardest days, you need to be on top of your game by maintaining an organized tee-sheet, pace of play, and checking in players as fast as possible so they can enjoy their round. – less
