Can be a most satisfying experience to produce great water for the public.
Water Systems Tech II (Current Employee), 1515 11th Avenue, Fort Worth, Texas 76102June 29, 2014
Pros: getting a week off except for 1 1/2 days every other week.
Cons: only getting 1 1/2 days off every other week!
My day is normal and unassuming for the most part for working in a water treatment plant. I learned the basics plus so much more in the treatment of running a water treatment plant. However, that can change in almost an instant depending on what type of raw water is coming in to the plant. The hardest part of the job is when things are out of whack – more... and you are trying to deal with that and then a chemical delivery shows up. Exasperation is the word that comes to mind on those days. The most enjoyable part of the job is making good, clean, potable water for customers to enjoy. – less

Planning Intern (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXMay 20, 2014
Normal 8-5 job. Enjoyed conversing with my supervisor. He was always there when I needed his advice or assistance. Imparted lots of wisdom. Hard to adjust as I was only there for five months. I enjoyed the friendly people and the chemistry between their professional relationship with others. Left after the five months as I was only a student intern – more... and needed to return to my school to complete my degree. – less

Food and Beverage Attendant (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXDecember 15, 2013
Pros: discounts on food and merchandise items
Cons: inclement weather
A typical day at my workplace consists of cleaning all restroom areas and discarding trash and empty boxes from the stockroom. Light vacuuming is also required. Next, I clean and sanitize the kitchen area in and around the stove top/grill/fryer area making sure its clean for the next person opening in the mornings. Restocking all snacks and menu items – more... are most important. Handling of the cash register is also an important duty. Making debit/credit card and cash transactions and dispensing proper change/receipts to all customers. Counting tills and making cash deposits everynight as I close the snack shop. My manager is an excellent supervisor. My co-workers are especially helpful when I need help with anything. The hardest part of my job is nothing. Its self explanatory and easy. The most enjoyable part of my job is playing golf for free all year long. – less

A tense, stressful environment; Once tenured employees were more a liability than an asset.
Project Controls Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXNovember 19, 2013
The worst management I have ever experienced. There is constant friction and drama between all departments, and as a result, efficiency is poor as is employee morale. The pay would be considered an insult to most people, although the health benefits were solid.

This is a terrible place to work for anybody with a professional degree. If you have one – more... iota of ambition, stay away from this place.

Once you are tenured after 6 months, the stakes change. It is IMPOSSIBLE to lose your job at this point. So, if you only strive for security at the risk of dealing with some very abrasive, disrespectful egomaniacs, perhaps this job may be up your alley. – less

Pros: weekly staff meeting, each employee allowed to learn what everyone was doing and to see the "big picture."
Cons: not given enough assistance to handle to bi-weekly audit.
Municipal government develops good discipline and individual can take this experience into any organization and do well.

I was responsible for raising limits, renewing – more... cards, setting up new accounts and cancelling cards for those no longer eligible Excellent opportunity to learn all aspects of this position. Management had an open-door policy and allowed input from subordinates. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with audits which occurred every 13 days. There were over 700 credit cards issued and it was my responsibility to audit all transactions every 13 days. The most enjoyable part of the job was assisting each card holder navigate through the system, training them how to use it to the best advantage for organization. – less
