The City of Dayton, as a whole is very fluent in the foundation of leadership demonstration.

Emergency Operator (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHDecember 11, 2015
Working for the City of Dayton has been a great life experience. I met so many wonderful people, who I am still in contact with today. There was no typical day at work being an emergency operator, something new every day. I enjoyed working for the public and helping people.

difficult environment
light equipment mechanic 2 (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHNovember 5, 2015
diverse crew, lower level equipment, not up to date. I learned how to deal with political red tape and management skills, the management at city of Dayton was a nightmare, direct supervisors were given no authority to make decisions, department management could not make decisions without expressed consent from director of public works. This makes job completion very difficult at the blue collar level. Blue collar were often reprimanded for lack of productivity. This makes for a hostile work environment. It was a better decision for myself to part company and cut my losses

As an intern, this was a great start into my career path. I had the opportunity through the SOCHE intern program to explore many of the different departments, which was eye-opening to me because I was very unaware of how they all worked together.

Great Summer job to come back to year after year
Manager of Operations, Dayton City Pool (Current Employee) –  Dayton, WASeptember 7, 2013
I have loved working summers at the Dayton City Pool (under the purview of the City of Dayton). The City of Dayton is a great employer and gives you a chance to learn customer service skills, how to work well and cooperate with individuals you wouldn't on a regular basis, and provides a great introduction to working life for those who are still in high school. Working for the City of Dayton also provides the job security of being able to keep returning to work each summer as long as you keep doing a good job. This is a great job for high school and college level students who need summer time employment, whether it is full time, part time, or shift work.
Pros
great weather, beautiful work environment, fun work place
Cons
some times can be hectic, first aid necessary on occasion
