Typical day was process control of wastewater plant or driving CDL vehicle. Hours were good until it rained at anytime. Then your life is on hold. Supervisor implies "family first ", but it's not the case. Even put on nights and was told that I could have one night off every seven weeks. That was it for me. Great coworkers for the most part. Very good benefits. Pay should be better. I got 65cents more for upgrading to a B license. Good luck if you dare.

Community Development Intern (Former Employee) – Conroe, TX – March 23, 2017
Typically early morning, and late night day, with plenty of work to stay busy and remain productive. Learning about building codes, community development, code enforcement, and planning was all relative to my major. Hardest part of the job was adjusting to the environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people and exposure to different departments and the public.
Awesome place to work, but pay was to low to live off of. I would have stayed but want able to make a living off 12.71 an hour. Always had the parts we need, never argued about what we see in the ground and what should be in the ground. Team effort all the time
Business Analyst/Applications Specialist (Current Employee) – Conroe, TX – May 23, 2016
The City of Conroe Texas is a highly positive workplace for IT professionals. Management is in tune with today's technology needs and IT is allowed to increase infrastructure as well as utilize the latest software for our systems. All of these factors allow the City of Conroe to provide the best technological services for its employees and provide better technological services to the citizens.
New inexperienced management in place, no longer a team work environment as it once was. Do not expect anyone to help you, Everyman for themselves with the new management and inexperienced mechanics. Lies and betrayal between management and employees. Atmosphere seems good at first until drama surfaces. I was asked to do things against my own professional integrity. Glad to have the opportunity to move on with my experience. Consider to be high risk job.

Line Locator/Operator/Laborer (Former Employee) – Conroe, TX – September 9, 2013
I like the work but not the politics. If your in then everything is great but if your not then its hard to do a good job everyday. I learned a lot about water an sewer maintenance. I learned how to run a lot of large equipment, which I like. Working with the guys was really good to because you have help. I worked by myself towards the end of my stay at the city. I would go back but under different management. Doing others people's job for them was a problem sometimes because my work suffered. Only if the people on top, really new what happens to the people at the bottom, then I still be with the City of Conroe.
Enjoyable experience working with kids and learning the process of writing and implementing recreation programs.
