Park Maintenance Worker (Current Employee) – Concord, CA – April 4, 2016
I start my day with the morning routes, thats were I go around and look for Trash on the fields or on the playgrounds from the parks. After I'm done with my routes, I either mow the fields or edge the bushes around the parks or weed wake.
Our office is right in the center of the community we assist. I see where the system helps on one hand and hinders on the other. My coworkers make this a tolerable work environment. The lack of positive leadership is disappointing. It takes attention away from what is really important.
This is an OK job, but I definitely need something better.
General Laborer (Current Employee) – Concord, CA – July 27, 2015
On a regular day we start off doing rounds around several city parks picking up trash using a blower to clear off playgrounds, sidewalks, and tennis courts. then depending on the day of the week my partner and i would either mow the sports fields or line trim or assist the tree crew. i learned how to drive a ride on lawn mower and how to install and maintain Rain Bird irrigation systems. the hardest part of this job is that we are out in the sun all day and some days it gets really hot and also dealing with some rude public individuals at times. the best part of the job is we get our own work truck and we are free on our own schedule.

The City of Concord is a good place to work in terms of long term benefits and job security. Despite the economic turmoil, Concord had not laid anyone off while continuing to provide excellent service to the community.
ADA Coordinator/ Safety Health & Risk Management (Former Employee) – Concord, NC – February 24, 2015
ensure co-workers abide by OSHA regulations, ADA, FMLA, any all other NC regulations, ensure all Property & Casualty Insurance requirements were met; balanced a work day to ensure training was up to date, worked with Workers' Compensation regulations, managed citizen and customer claims
The city of concord was a decent place to work, it has great benefits and job security, the management was horrible. A typical day would be replacing concrete throughout the city that needed replacing, or adding new concrete to existing features such as sidewalks, curb, driveways etc. Ive learned how to run heavy equipment efficiently and quickly.
Days went by fast and management was pretty fair. I learned how to drive dump trucks and rear loaders. I also learned how to deal with customers. There was nothing hard about the job. This job was mostly enjoyable but I wanted more pay.
I was a temp there, but a typical day there was to do mail run, and scan new application and forward over to the dept that was doing the hiring. I learned how the HR dept work and got to know the ends and out. The work co-workers was nice. The management was good. the hardest part of the job was not been full time. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people.
I worked for them in the 90's, horrible experience.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Concord, NC – May 3, 2012
My mgr. had a 9th grade education. She made my life a living h*** because I was going to college. She took every opportunity to ridcule me, even saying my hair was too long. She had hers cut like a man would cut his.
On New Years Eve, she heard several of us talking about our plans. I had purchased tickets to a comedy club and made reservations for my then boyfriend, now husband and myself. The mgr. then decided I needed to work overtime to do filing. The other 2 girls I worked with said they would stay instead. We then all left on time.
I finally resigned my position. The only job I had ever resigned from.
The City needs to hire people with some college or degrees. They still hire mostly uneducated persons, and it shows.
brutal management, non caring management, uneducated persons who are inadequate for the job.
