I loved working for the City in the beginning, but then you became on call constantly. You were expected to forgo your vacation to ensure work was done, and upper management was unwilling to fill in. Yet they would take 2 weeks off at Christmas and 2 weeks off at Thanksgiving to be with their families. I was told I was only allowed to take a day off here or there, and not allowed to take a full week off because my facility was understaffed, yet HR not my department could assist in getting positions filled. There was no work/life balance, you were expected to be at work or on call 24/7, which was not the impression that I was presented in accepting the position.
