Work was always different cause you never new the temperament of the animals . It was always a learning experiment with so much in this field to know. Management was as good as can be do to upper management constant changing of ways Great set of workers to learn from and to be around with knowing how many neglected animals are out there Showing the love to them and getting in return was the best
Zumba Instructor (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – April 4, 2016
I will go to the senior center from the City, and I talk to my students and have fun before my class. When I started y class I instruct my student all of the song, and we dance, sing and have fun at the rhythm of the song. Co-workers were very kind and flexible, what I really enjoy about my job was seeing my students health get better and their life changed just by dancing and having fun
Learned about city culture, locations, and landscape
Code Compliance Officer (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – March 15, 2016
I liked working for the City of El Paso. I learned to use maps, GIS, and desert landscape to identify properties. I was provided with training overall to perform the required use of new technology and city vehicles. Only drawback was replacement of temporary supervisor while filling vacant position. Some temporary supervisors did not have people skills and not properly trained which caused problems in communication and service.
Flex time and tuition reimbursement. Employee recognition
Intern then Contract Worker (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – March 11, 2016
I would go to class then do my internship at Veteran's Park. I really enjoyed reaching out to all the student's I provided them with a way to complete their homework. Then we would talk about their problems and I would provide support and recommend ways to solve them.
I was doing what I enjoyed and my internship as well.
It was a short time to help people then I had to leave them not knowing the outcome.
Lifeguard and Swim Instructor (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – January 19, 2016
Day usually consisted of interacting with patrons, helping in anyway possible to make their visit more pleasant. When i wasn't tending to a patron, monitoring the pool was my main duty, and providing first- aid , and CPR if an accident or drowning were to occur. One thing I really liked was that were several occasions where a child was drowning, and I had to perform a rescue, becuase of those situations I was always attentive when monitoring the pool. Another interesting advantage of working for the city was the wide range of positions available, such as summer coaches and swimming instructors. All of which I took the benefit of working. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the routine. Staying on our toes helps but, there are days when you have to find something to do.
It Was Great The First Years, The Last, Too Much Work, Retired.

Voe Clerk (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – August 18, 2015
A typical day at work was to greet people and refereed them to the proper agent in our department as well as daily secretary skills. Every day was a learning experience as all co-workers were helpful. I enjoyed net working.
Youth Activity Specialist (Former Employee) – Parks and Recreation – July 9, 2015
I worked for the City of El Paso for four years. I love kids and I'm really good at my job. This job is only part-time and pays 7.25/hr for 20hr/week. On a typical day I come in 30min early to a 2-6pm shift. I head to the cabinets and retrieve the items and paperwork I need to start the day. On Mondays, you have to go to the schools office and get a list that was emailed to her/him from your supervisor. The list has the kids that are paid for that week, you call the parents that haven't paid for the kids for that week. The kids come out at 3:15pm, so at that time we feed them and do homework, after homework I set up activities like board games, sports, and arts and crafts. Around 6pm the parents come for there kids. What I took from this job was communication, curriculum, motivation, and patience. Management- Good the most part you only see them during training, your supervisor sends coordinators to help or assist you. Your co-workers very, depending which site/school you go to you may find a lazy co-worker or a hard working one. The hardest part of the job was the ratio, in the City they push the ratio to kid to adult up. For one adult theirs 19 kids and trust me kids will get hurt. What I enjoyed the most of my job is kids, for a year time you get attached and fill back when you get transferred to a different location.
