Great colleagues, environment, but poor compensation/advancement
Inspector, and Emerald Ash Borer Team Member (Current Employee), Columbus, OH – May 10, 2014
Like most local governments there is a wide variety of talented employees. However, with fixed budgets and rigid pay scales one most really enjoy their job and duties. Pay and career advancements are few and far between and weigh heavily on tenure and not credentials or potential of a candidate.
Fun work place, physical and mentally stimulating, open to advancment in work place
Recreational Aide (Current Employee), Columbus, OH – May 3, 2014
A typical day as a Recreational Aid is a fun relaxed atmopher. Basically play with kids all day. Learn alot working with the kids like being patcient, learning how to get and keep kids intrust, and orgainzing programes for recration patrionts. The hardest part of the job is getting the kids and adults more involved in there recration center and in there – more... community. Overall I enjoy working as a Recreational Aid and working with co-workers who are more like family. – less

construction inspector 1 (Former Employee), Columbus, OH – September 16, 2013
Pros: good compensation, good benifits
punch clock at office. report to supervisor. travel to project. converse with contractor about work plan for the day. management was ok. my co workers were fine. hardest part of the job was when the weather was bad. the most enjoyable was when the weather was good.

Parking Violations Bureau Representative (Current Employee), Columbus, OH – May 12, 2013
Nice place with good employees. Schedules are good and the office manager tries to accommodate you whenever you need time off, whether it be an hour in the middle of the day or a day off in the middle of the week.
Come into work at 6 a.m., get routes and paperwork needed. Get truck ready. Go out to assigned route and once completed, go unload truck, clean out truck, fuel up truck and park for the day. Come in and do it all over again the next day. I loved my co-workers. I made good friends and met their family members and had good times. The hardest part of the – more... job I think was "Defensive Driving". People out on the roads just did not want to ride behind as, always had to go around and cut us off just to be ahead of us. I enjoyed talking to and helping out the residents that I collected the garbage for. There's a lot of good people out there in Columbus. – less
