Great career with lots of opportunities for advancement.
Police Officer Trainee (Former Employee), Dallas, TXSeptember 9, 2014
I learned a lot of things during the short time I was there, it is a great career to have. There are many opportunities for advancement and many different options (positions) within the department for one to choose. The training offered at the academy is about 36 weeks long and is designed to prepare a recruit for the all different types of scenarios – more... out in the field. At first I decided to pursue this career because I have a passion for helping people and wanted a job where I wasn't going to encounter the same things and people. – less

Not like it use to be
Community Service Worker (W.I.C) (Current Employee), DallasMay 28, 2014
Their employee benefits are not the best they don't match anything with your 401k nor do they match anything with their 457 which they make you contribute a percentage that they come up with out of every paycheck. And they show an enormous amount of favortisim, but the job in it's self is easy and fun.

Head lifeguard (Former Employee), Dallas, TxApril 30, 2014
Cons: short breaks, no benefits
I would start the day with swimming lessons with the kids in the morning. I had four scheduled lessons every morning with different skill levels and had another four in the afternoon following pool hours. I was also the assistant manager so if the manager wasnt there I would be addressed as second in charge. I oversaw my fellow lifeguards and just made – more... sure everything went according. I closed the day with lessons and made sure the pool was ready and clean for in the morning. – less
