A typical day at work would be coming in and interacting with not only children but regulars that come in. What I have learned from this job is time management on getting events and classes done for the customers satisfaction. Management here is put together well and organized. My co-workers are very friendly and modest about one an others ideas. The hardest part of my job is not being able to speak other languages because the recreational center has many cultures (very diverse). The most enjoyable part about my job is that there is not dual moment with the children (entertaining) and customers (friendly).
My job is crossing children and teenagers and pedestrians. I have learned to be patient and understanding and also to be stern on occasions. Management is great my boss is a very understanding and helpful individual. I don't really do much interacting with co-workers since I am alone at my post. Hardest part of job is not being able to tell drivers they are speeding. My most enjoyable is helping the children and pedestrians and anybody needing my help. I also enjoy being outside and enjoying the day.
Lead After School/ Camp Counselor (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – October 6, 2015
On a typical day, I come in and help set up the room before the kids get out of school and print out the attendance sheet. Once that is finish, my team and I, go pick the kids up from school, which is semi connected to the Recreation Center where I work. I check them in, and walk back over to the Recreation Center. Once we have all our kids settled and organized, we take them to the gym for about an hour and do gym games with them. After that hour is over, we then go to the Large Activity Room, where we provide them snack and that usually last about 30 minutes. After snack time is over I then separate the kids that have homework from those that don't. When the children don't have homework, I still advise that they read, so that they are not distracting those that do have homework. I then go around and help those that need help on homework. After about an hour of homework time, the kids then gather their belongings and my staff and I get ready to either take them outside or to the game room until their parents come get them. If I am not working with the kids, I am in the office, enrolling people into the various classes that we offer, or taking payments and answering phone calls. There is a total of 4 staff, including myself that work with the kids in the After School Program. We strive to help these kids be the best that they can be. Each week we pick leaders from each grade level that we feel have followed directions, helped out when needed, and set an example for their peers. I love working with a diverse group of children and look forward to seeing them and hearing allmore... sorts of crazy stories that they have to tell.less
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – May 25, 2012
A typical day is great in interacting with customers, volunteers and co-workers. I learned that if we all do our part then the job is done. I think instead of management pointing fingers, also re-evaluate yourself. Your fellow co-workers are a joy to work with. The hardest part of the job is when you go home thinking about your job and how you can improve it. The most enjoyable part is that I was a part of the City of Irving when it came from the days of old and into the current century. Change is good, especially in this case and will also generate great revenue.
There are many aspects of Water quality. There are water quality programs that can be detrimental to any city if they are not compliant. The drinking water, wastewater, total oils and grease, and stormwater programs that must follow the rules and regulations provided in the 40 CFR for environmental protection agency. Making sure that each program follows it's protocol for compliance requires a strategic plan that must be followed.

The day is hectic dealing with crime victims I have learned listening skills, computer skills, and managing those with tempers. I have learned to depend on my co-workers to watch what I cannot see and teach me what I do not know. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the child victims. The most enjoyable is seeing a crying child smile after they receive a teddy bear and a hug.
Heavy Equiment Operator / Route Driver (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – November 30, 2014
Most of my days were spent outside, driving a truck, while interacting with the public. I really enjoyed working outside and getting to meet new people. I would have to say the most difficult part of the job was operating a boom around low hanging power lines.
Working for the City of Irving was a great place to work, learned a lot in a short period of time. Co-workers were great people. The hardest part about the job was learning the different bonds and learning Central Control.
