Principal Power Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – November 26, 2013
This job is the greatest job I have ever had. The work is challenging and fast paced as the work environment is in a dynamic flux. Having a presence in the control center at the hub of an electrical utility power distribution system is quite awe inspiring and very exciting. We work with a crew of two dispatchers monitoring the system with a coordinator and a supervisor to oversee operations, policy and procedures. They make it so the focus of the system operators is uninterrupted and worry free. The upper management is friendly with very clear executive leadership and a dynamic vision. The hardest part of the job is leaving everyday because the level of commitment is so intense by all employees that they just do not want to leave. There is great camaraderie within the crews and open communication is not only essential but encouraged. As a whole, this field is an exciting field to work in, but at this job site, there is an unique and enjoyable work experience to be had.
Flexible lunch times and open communication with management to address any concerns immediately.
Parks and Recreation (Former Employee) – Pasadena, TX – May 25, 2017
A typical day at work was just easy load our trucks and go clean our parks the have on our route. I learned a lot from all the departments in parks and recreation. The supervisors are pretty chill with the employees all they ask is just come in do your job and go home. The workplace is good nothing really bad about the place.There is really no hard part about the job it's so easy even anybody can do it. For me the part I like about my job is the entire day it's pretty much chill nothing hard it's easy for me and it's easy for anyone.

City Clerk (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – December 11, 2016
This was a one day job I was offered thru school to help during the 2008 Presidential election. my job responsibilities were helping in coming voters sign in and help with voting if needed. I really enjoyed doing this job because I was able to do my patriotic duty.
A typical day at work was enjoying the sun and nice cold swimming water, but also being on guard and making sure everyone at or in the pool is safe. Management was great, co-workers were friendly, and everything about the job seemed enjoyable to me.
A day at work is never boring. I learned to have much more patience. My coworkers are hardworking and outgoing. The hardest part of the job is getting kids to listen. The most enjoyable part of the job is hearing kids stories about anything and everything.

Technical Specialist (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – December 7, 2015
As I worked in a department of 80 employees; it wasn't difficulty to be able to get along well. Our department consist of carpenters, electricians, painters, plumbers, mechanics, management and secretaries. We understood that we are human beings which lead to team players. This created a fun and enjoyable work environment. Sure there were disagreements but there was mutual respect for one another as human beings. We had weekly committee meetings such as Management, Employee Advisory, and Organizational Training, etc. We became familiar with each section job responsibilities in case of short coverage. The meetings kept us focus on the "Big Picture". You know, the organizational vision and value. Every job responsibility exerts a high level of effort and perseveres towards goal attainment.
