PD TRU CSR (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – January 30, 2017
The job itself is intense, you are not always speaking to people who understand the scope of your position. All Managment is very unhelpful and not willing to have your best interest. The environment is intimidating and most employees are caddy and talk about each other. You are low on the scale and anyone can tell you what you are expected to do. Your job description will mostly be " and other duties as assigned".
Micro-managed, low pay, not allowed to have an opinion

Lifeguard (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – July 3, 2016
Lifeguarding is a really high pay entry level job, great for high school and college students. There was a good mix of both students and managers were all around similar ages. Typical workday includes guarding rotations with a thirty minute break for every thirty minute shift, which may include working cashier depending on how busy the pool becomes over the course of the day. Co-workers were easy to work with and became great friends with many of them. A great job to work with school schedules.

WIC (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – January 13, 2016
The health district is managed pretty poorly especially the WIC department. The manager micromanages and is very clueless. She perpetuates a horrible work place culture, hostile work environment and low morale. There is no opportunity for advancement or extra assigned duties. Don't be fooled! Even after complaints the higher ups at the health department have made no attempts to fix any issues. Do not work here
1 hour lunches
No support, low morale, hostile work environment, favoritism, lack of leadership
Productive workplace with network opportunities with engineers, contractors, and building officials.
