Main career, worked there for 18 years from clerk to collections manager.
Collections Coordinator (Former Employee), Pasadena, TxSeptember 5, 2012
Pros: good benefits, retirement, opportunity to advance.
Cons: politics.
A very busy workplace, fast paced, municiple court balanced work schedule in that half day spent interacting with public and half day spent on paperwork and computer system updates. I learned many things in 18 years please see resume. Management good, co-workers good. Hardest part of job was preparing warrants for arrest, but necessary for position. – more... I enjoyed my final few years there when I saw the revenues coming in a visual reward for hard work. – less

Case Manager (Former Employee), Pasadena, CAAugust 13, 2012
Typical day at work consisted of Case Management for clients who were dislocated from their jobs and seeking new employment and/or training opportunities. Conducting workshops and doing administrative work to ensure that they were attached back to the labor force. I learned so much from my job, most importantly it taught me how to facilitate and implement – more... government programs and run them successfully. My co-workers were great and we worked well as a team unit. The hardest part of my job was dealing with hard to serve population who had multiple barriers to employment. The most enjoyable was watching clients get excited and overjoyed when they find employment and are able to provide for themselves and their families. – less

Assistant Public Information Officer (Current Employee), Pasadena, CAApril 26, 2012
Working for the City of Pasadena is a pleasure. It is very efficient and focused on meeting the needs of residents. Although it's a relatively small city with just under 140,000 residents, it is truly world-class, featuring big-city educational, retail and cultural amenities. And, of course, it's known worldwide for the annual Tournament of Roses Parade – more... and Rose Bowl Game on New Year's Day. – less

Recreation Attendant (Current Employee), Pasadena, TexasFebruary 29, 2012
Parks and Recreation Department was a really fun place to work. During the summer you attend field trips with kids. There are activities daily that you are in charge of as well as giving lunches and keeping a clean and safe environment for the kids to play.
