Summer day camps are challenging and rewarding to work at.
Recreation Leader I (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAMay 21, 2017
Each day is different when working at the summer day camps, but the staff excels at working as a team to provide the best summer activities for the kids. Weekly staff meetings are helpful and enjoyable.

Relaxed environment
Helpdesk Technician (Current Employee) –  Orange, CAMay 17, 2017
Environment is relaxed. Their IT Department is contracted and therefore not actually apart of City staff.So in some ways we're treated differently from most staff members. But overall I can't complain. Still a great place to work as long as you have excellent customer service skills.

Typical day at work was very busy, phones would ring throughout the whole day. I learned to do a lot from this company, unfortunately I am a temp here. The management is very easy going and very pleasant.

Great People But Inadequate Compensation
Deputy Director Public Works (Current Employee) –  Orange, CAAugust 26, 2015
The City of Orange is a great organization that is headed the wrong direction. Their compensation package has steadily declined and as a result they are not attracting the top level candidates that they used to. It is still a great place to work with opportunities for advancement.

Child oriented, fun environment
Recreational Service Leader (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAJanuary 29, 2015
Working with children on a regular basis was both rewarding and difficult at the same time. A typical day at work would include helping the children with homework, leading educational activities, monitoring play time, and leading physical activities. On special occasions I would work City of Orange special events and holiday city occasions. I was CPR and First Aid certified. What I enjoyed most was teaching the children new things and how each day was always different. Communicating with some of the childrens' parents who spoke only Spanish was difficult.
Pros
Fun activities, working with children
Cons
Strict city rules and bylaws.

Pros
None

Animal control Officer
Animal Control Officer (Former Employee) –  Orange, TXFebruary 28, 2013
Working calls around the city of Orange, picking up strays,surrenders and 1045s (dead animals). I learned how to properly clean the animal shelter, put down animals humanly, and work with animals. The hardest part about being an animal control officer is putting animals to sleep. The best part about being an animal control officer is finding homes for the animals.
Pros
working in the public and helping out people with their pets and finding homes for the animals
Cons
putting down animals
