Elected City Councilor (Current Employee) – City of Greenville, State of Michigan – July 27, 2015
Great city to work for, with many challenges on a daily basis. Perfect style of position to work and interact with persons from different socio-economic background, and to help resolve their problems or complaints.
Working at the City of Greenville was a great experience. I learned to drive dump trucks and other heavy equipment. This was one of my favorite jobs because I had the time to work and be my self at all times. I really enjoyed it.
INTERN (Former Employee) – Greenville, MS – December 14, 2015
During a work day, I learned how to efficiently cut grass and maintain healthy relationships with my coworkers. The hardest part of the job was the summer heat while the most enjoyable part is being able to make Greenville look beautiful.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Greenville, TX – November 26, 2014
I've worked there for 31/2 years in the street dept the work was easy. The only thing is they babysit people that don't have the drive to do there job. They don't like giving raises unless your the city manager or the people in the upper offices. They stab you in the back.
The City of Greenville has many opportunties for employment. They offer wonderful benefits and create an family friendly environment. The education benefit is great for people who are going back to school. They also helped create a healthy work place by creating a gym onsite to be used by employee during the work day.
Everyone working towards the same goal. Great team environment. Having attained an Advanced Accounting Certificate which enabled me to sit for the CPA exam, I had been exposed to Governmental Accounting but had never had hands-on exposure to it. I learned a great deal about the nuances of Governmental Accounting and hope to utilize this knowledge in my future. Management was always very supportive.
This entity is a fair however, there is little room for advancement and the salary is low.
Driver (Temporary) (Current Employee) – Greenville, South Carolina – July 23, 2014
The day starts out with no briefing to the employees which is needed for morale. This would help in giving some insight of what is expected and just general knowledge of the how the operation is operating. The management team conducts are privately and appears bias in most cases. Fellow employees morale is low and the turn-over ratio is high. The hardest part of the job is sitting with little to do. The most enjoyable part of the job is there is a slight chance of transferring to another department with the organization.
Great place to work. Co-workers are exceptionally great! Management is wonderful. The hardest part of my job is knowing that there is no growth in my department. The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with others.
Engineer II - Capital Projects (Former Employee) – Greenville, NC – January 6, 2015
Working for the City of Greenville, NC was a great experience. The have a city administrator in charge of day to day operations. A public works director (who was also an engineer) in charge of services. The staff was friendly (even to a Yankee) and the upper management that I met was informed and knew their business.
I found a job very well suited for me at the City of Greenville. The functions of the position of financial analyst/grants administrator were challenging and very rewarding. My job, along with the other positions in the Community Development division was very unique in that we has specifically separate functions but all worked on several activities.
The job was very rewarding and I hate the federally-formulated entitlement funds decreased to the point of forcing the City to dissolve 2 additional positions this year- one of them being mine. That makes 4 positions dissolved in the 16.4 years I was there.
rewarding work, making lots of great contacts with great people
many aspects of community development can be very politically driven instead of plan-driven
Landscaping (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – April 21, 2015
a lot of traveling and communicating to different people and also a lot of persuading my customers to sale their gold. then we could give them discounts for it also so they can get a good bit of money back
Captain (Current Employee) – Greenville, MS – February 15, 2013
Most work is using teamwork. We eat, sleep, and put our lives on the line daily for our community and our selves. A typical work day consists of cleaning the stations and maintenance on our equipment. But the alarm can sound anytime, day or night and you have to be ready to go. The hardest part of the job is seeing someone loose there home or life. The most enjoyable part is the comradery we share.
Police Records Clerk (Former Employee) – Greenville, TX – February 25, 2013
