Office Clerk (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – August 4, 2015
It started out as just a job in 1986, and rapidly turned into a career! I enjoyed the accomplishment of being able to finish my routes when reading meters. Being able to get a better paying job and learn new skills as a maintenance worker was a wonderful accomplishment. and experience, I am grateful to the city for offering me that opportunity since I was the only female doing that job. The office experience made it a full circle as far as seeing how everything is put together from the customer, to the installation and their satisfaction.
Communications Supervisor (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – August 2, 2015
Great organization to work for. The work itself is stressful but yet rewarding for you are helping people in critical situations. Co Workers work well together and are like your family away from home. The most enjoyable part of the job was the relationships I built over the last 25 years and knowing that my work made a difference.
Landfill Field Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – May 14, 2015
Not really given the full opportunity to supervise, micro management from manager. True good ole boy organization. Managers hires her favorites not the supervisor. She also writes the terminations as ask you to sign them. Has no clue to maintaining equipment, risk management is through the roof. Has fear of process improvements. You will do great if you kiss the manager's behind. Never oppose her or she will terminate you and you with no rights to appeal. You could be the very best at landfill operations, it will not matter if you do not play the politics and play her mind games. The other person who wrote good ole boy company and race issues was right on the mark. Diversity means having the understanding of different races too. Be ready to deal with "this is how we always did it". They are very comfortable not changing a thing. Their way of making a wet dirt road drivable it to simply put wood chips on it, not to divert the storm water away from the road. Amateurs at storm water control. Better call the engineers, she says before you try to control the rain run off. Manager creates so much unneeded drama!
good ole boy management, manager has no clue to actually operating the landfill, just book smart.
Very productive and educational enviornment to work in.
Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – February 2, 2015
My experience on the ReHabilitation Unit was very educational and kept me on my toes! Different techniques and equipment that was used to aide in the heeling and rehabilitation of a knee or hip replacement peaked my interest, and I continued to attend different free diagnostics that were offered via my employer.
Customer service (Current Employee) – City of Grand Prairie, TX – July 10, 2014
Awful city to work for very high turn over. Operates on the good ole boy system. Management is very unprofessional, they will keep you for the 6 month probation period that's a guarantee only because they don't want you to get unemployment. No fairness but the City is very diverse, competitive pay. There are some racist people working for the City in high places . I recommend working for Grand Prairie as a last ditch effort.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Brandon, MS – April 12, 2013
It was a great experience and i really enjoyed it. We fixed potholes in the street kept street clean. I learned a lot about how to work with others, and the management was excellent. Some of my co-workers were better than others,there was no hard part to me if you can believe that,the most enjoyable part was getting up and going to work.

Senior Accountant (Former Employee) – City of Grand Prairie – June 19, 2012
Great place to get basic training. Not recommended for long term, high employee turnover. The highly diverse environment makes it a little difficult to get accepted. Employees are somewhat on guard, which makes it more difficult for you to establish effective working relationships.
great retirement plan
poor management communication, no teamwork, favoritism
