Don't plan on staying here
Customer service (Current Employee), City of Grand Prairie, TXJuly 10, 2014
Cons: racism, discrimination, good ole boy system
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 – more... high places . I recommend working for Grand Prairie as a last ditch effort. – less

Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee), Brandon, MSApril 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.

Great place for short term employment
Senior Accountant (Former Employee), City of Grand PrairieJune 19, 2012
Pros: great retirement plan
Cons: poor management communication, no teamwork, favoritism
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.

I worked for the city for a number of years and saw good people come and go due to unprofessional management and favortism. Managment always finds ways to blame their staff for their short comings.
