Community Services Assistant (Current Employee) – Fontana, CA – June 10, 2016
Everyday working for the City of Fontana is fun and rewarding. Not only is there great co-workers, but giving back to the community and seeing that our patron who live in the city are enjoying our programs is priceless.
Secretary of Community Development (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – October 6, 2015
A typical day would be multitasking by doing more than one job at a time, as I enjoyed doing more jobs at one time, that is who I am, I enjoy being busy. I have learned so much working for this city that I am able to take with me to other jobs.
I worked for several management from different departments; there were some very easy to work for and some not so easy, so I would learn what they like and dont like so it would make my job easier for the ones that are not so easy to work for, I always believed you don't have to like each other in the work place, but just as long as we can work together to get the job done.
I kept my socializing to minimal because I was so busy concentrating on my job at hand and the public of the city. As I am ahard worker and enjoy keeping busy for what the company hires me to do, and if I have some time in between I would socialize for a brief moment, because I always still like to keep a good repor with others it makes it good to work together at times. My co-workers understood my priorties.
The hardest part of the job was not being able to assist some of the public with their concerns.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to assist someone and seeing them happy after!
After School Community Services Assistant (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – July 30, 2015
I'm sure that depending on what department you work for, things could be different. I was part of the Community Services department and the After School Program was not the most encouraging environment to work in, especially since it was always being threatened to close down at the end of the school year. The staff usually made me feel like I was on my own too; I felt like there was a huge lack of support and a huge lack of community so much that I will never work in an after school program again anywhere.
lack of team work, fixed hours, rules are always being bent, 40:1 class ratios depending on school site
COMMUNITY SERVICE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – July 3, 2015
I worked out of the senior center which consist of daily complaints (most seniors are never satisfied) but nothing to major. You get to know a lot of them and grow friendships. Management really needs to learn and take the time to know how to run the building.
off holidays and weekeneds
the center is closed for 2 weeks during christmas and no pay
Senior Community Services Assistant (Current Employee) – Jessie Turner Health and Fitness Center – May 18, 2014
Work days can either be busy or slow. I learned a lot of patience and communication skills. Management is very professional and easy to talk too. Co-workers are fun to be around. Most enjoyable part is seeing the customers smile.
Senior Associate Engineer (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – August 22, 2013
Poor Department Management. We worked 10-40 hrs/per week. Peers are great and easy to get along. Engineering manager are not engineer and has no knowledge of the technical engineering and making it hard for decision making.
