Productive workplace with friendly people.
Public Works Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – May 6, 2015
A typical at the City of Evanston was answering phones, helping Evanston residents with any questions or concerns. I learned about my community and how to work Microsoft excel. Since this is the City of Evanston with many departments, as far as management I can only speak from the department I was exposed to. Management was organized and supervisors were easy to get along with. They always kept me busy, and presented me with new projects on a day-to-day basis.
Everyone at the Civic Center were friendly individuals. Whether they were a field worker or an office assistant, everyone was open-minded and created a laid back environment. The most difficult part of my job was when I was given work, with minimal directions or none at. Dealing with residents who were hostile was a challenge, but then I'd transfer them to higher authority.
I enjoyed days working with the Cit of Evanston. It was very mellow, and interacting with my co-workers was the most enjoyable part.
Laid back environment, hour lunch breaks
Angry customers, slow days
