The City of Enid was going through many changes including the work place culture.
Public Services Director (Former Employee) – Enid, OK – November 12, 2015
The City of Enid (during my time there) was adjusting to the loss of significant tax revenue. The community was largely supported by oilfield and wheat farming. Both of those industries took heavy losses in the late 70's. This called for a lot of "right sizing" and (in many cases) asking more of employees than required in the past.
Job security and opportunity for advancement were very high
Mayor and Council changes too often, not allowing for consistant long term goal setting
Transit Driver/Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Enid, OK – November 18, 2013
A typical day is driving the transit bus. I also dispatch for the company which is pretty fun because I have to use my skills in multitasking. The management is ok, at times very difficult to deal with. I really don't deal with my co-workers on a daily basis due to the fact that I drive the bus and we are generally on the bus by ourselves picking up and unloading passengers. The best part of job is dealing with the passengers. I am a people person.
hardly ever get breaks. when you are part-time there is no health benefits.
work first, family second great for someone who enjoys not being home
Field Operator, Water Reclamation Services (Current Employee) – Enid, OK – July 21, 2012
Good day to day work place, mandatory overtime and very little say in your workload. Add/ subtract too many things too often to get into a groove. Decent learning environment but too many mangement members to properly dictate whats necessary daily and whats not. Hardest part is mandatory overtime,holidays, and weekends. Most enojoyable part is double time and a hlaf on holidays.
Supervisory Control and Date Acquisition (SCADA) (Former Employee) – Enid, OK – June 3, 2015
I would wake up, go to my cubicle, then just worked what was assigned to me that day or previous week. The people that worked around me were not computer animators, they were surveyors. That was the only part i didn't enjoy. What I did enjoy was going to work and having to learn new things that I've never even done before. It was quite exciting.
