Deputy Marshal (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – January 9, 2017
Was an ok place to work. There is a good handful of people. But please beware of the snakes that are within the organization. Including big wigs. One minute they're your best friend and the next they'll say whatever they need to get you terminated.
I did make quite a few good friends though. Just some I thought were friends, weren't. Money is decent and benefits are ok. Advancement is somewhat low due to how small the group is.
There does tend to be a good ol boy system going on In there also.
If you get on, just please be cautious what you say and around who.
Accountant (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – February 2, 2017
The CoFW Finance Department is a horrible place to work. Employees who take initiative and are proactive get chastised. Supervisors and Team Leads bully subordinates and assign impossible to complete work loads. To top it all off, employees are pressured by these same unethical supervisors to falsify time sheets.
Bully and unethical supervisors, excessive work loads
Sr PeopleSoft GL Functional Analyst (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – November 29, 2016
Just a head's up for those with PeopleSoft experience. This is a very immature system. I applied for the Job Title listed on this review. The initial telephone interview was encouraging and then I traveled for a second interview. I have strong governmental accounting experience, but my strengths lie in being a PeopleSoft functional analyst. During the second interview, it appeared they wanted a CPA only, which was not presented during the initial interview. The airfare and motel were nice accommodations, and I was told they would reimburse for incidentals and out-of-pocket expenses. Three weeks later and I have yet to receive reimbursement for the out-of-pocket expenses, which were submitted the day following my return trip.

Police Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – November 5, 2016
I used to love to get up and go to work everyday. The new management at this locations and the weekly changes and the daily stress brought on by these changes have brought about the highest turnover over I have ever seen in all my years and have now made this a place I no longer feel I want to continue st and retire at.
ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – August 23, 2016
As a Fort Worth Animal Control Officer, it was great to know the city and learn my way around the city I grew up in. My co-workers were great to work with. Manager was easy to get along with, the only part of the job is the dangers of rabid animals and venomous snakes.
Was very disrespected by citizens and possible animal attacks.
Property Control Specialist (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – August 16, 2016
No commendations for a job well done. The better job you do, the more work you have to do. The people I work with are enjoyable to work with. The management needs more classes on how to motivate people, instead of standing over their shoulders watching everything they do.
It's a wonderful place to work. A typical day at work is assisting Clients with applications, data entering information on Clients and their bill consumptions. I enjoy my job and the people I work with.
Senior Account Tech (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – June 7, 2016
the job is enjoyable and challenging. I have learned a lot of different computer soft ware. Some departments the management is great other departments management is lacking in areas. The people here are great. The hardest part of my job is having enough task and the most enjoyable part of my job it the relationships built with my customers.
Library (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 7, 2016
I was a library worker from the time I was in highschool and part of my young adult life. it was always a great place to work and the staff was great no matter what location I was sent to. I was a part timer and they were always willing to work with me to make sure I was able to get my hours and still work with my life schedule. For the most part I was always under good fair management, however there a few who weren't that great. These managers have been at this for a while and know how to make your job difficult while making it seem as though they are just asking you to do normal everyday things with a few small added on to make the workflow easier. At first you won't even recognize what's happening until you are doing things that are above your pay grade and keeping you from effectively performing your regular duties. Aside from that it's easy to get stuck as a part timer or a semi-temp. Working a set amount of hours each pay period and sometimes working 40 hours a week as a 'temp' with hopes of securing a permanent job while fearful of being let go of any time.
It isn't all bad, and as I have said the staff is usually friendly and even after a short time there they will make you feel like family. Also unless you constantly mess up horribly they are usually reluctant to fire you even if that means having you transfer to a new location or department. However it is easy to get stuck in Semi-Temp Purgatory.
