Always staying busy and very productive assisting anyone who may need assistance.
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

This was an excellent opportunity to learn credit card funtions.
P-Card Coordinator (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXOctober 9, 2013
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.

A typical day at work would involve assisting credit card users navigate through any issues that developed while trying to purchase items with their city-issued and owned credit card. 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

One of my favorite positions since it was always different.
Management Analyst II (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXMarch 6, 2013
The City was more progressive and open to change than most people give it credit for. My manager was great and had been with the City for years. The only disadvantage was growth opportunities since most people tend to stay with the City once they start there. We did process re-engineering studies as internal consultants for the City and that meant working – more... cross-fuctionally and with different fields: Police, Fire, Law, Maintenance, Municipal Courts, Environmental Management etc. – less

Admin (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TxSeptember 15, 2012
Pros: stability
Cons: pay, healthcare, lack of financial responsibility city wide
- hopefully you get hired in at what you want to earn while your with the city as you won't get any raises. No raises based on performance and all step increases have been stopped for years.
***Unless your a civil servicemen which continue to get raises throughout their career without fail***
- have health insurance through a spouse or other relative. – more... The city continues to raise health insurance cost on their self funded plans through Aetna. Insurance raises at least 5% to upwards to 12% every year for the last 7 years. One of the most expensive insurance plans compared to other cities that are smaller.
-Great coworkers. Always a few bad apples but that's normal everywhere.
-Managers go with the "good ol boy system".
-Micro managing is a huge factor also. – less
