Fun workplace with various activities to do with the kids
Recreational Leader 1 (Current Employee) – Peoria, AZ – October 20, 2017
I absolutely love working for the City of Peoria so far. I work in the AMPM program. My job is to basically supervise students and oversee game playing, coloring, and other activities. Also ensuring their safety and the tidiness of the environment. It is a pretty chill atmosphere and well managed. There is nothing hard about this job at all. Except for when the kids have disputes and you need to decide the most fair solution. The most enjoyable part of this job is participating in activities with the students. I would recommend working here 100%!
Accomodating to your schedule, working with children, decent pay for a part-time job

Rec 1 (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – July 24, 2017
I love going to work, I love being able to have an effect on the children's lives and have good days with them. Management is good, the best part is really the children, they make the job what it is. The hardest part is learning the children in the beginning and getting to know what they like dont like and etc.

Peoria has a rich history and enormous potential. The city still has some maturing to do but it has a great foundation and as a place to live there are many great venues for outdoor and other formsof entertainment and dining.
It is in Illinois - State Debt is dampening the cities potential
Recreational Coordinator (Current Employee) – Peoria, AZ – June 16, 2017
Love the programs they offer, but in the Community Services area they have no interest in evolving and being better. It's more important to place blame for our errors instead of learning and growing from them.
Census Interviewer (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – May 1, 2017
Training for the census job was thorough. Access to supervisor for any questions was very good. I felt comfortable asking questions and checking in for guidance. Very autonomous, which I didn't mind. Everyone involved was helpful and friendly. The hardest part of the job was getting folks to come to the door! I enjoyed the people that I worked under and with. It was easy to discuss issues and get feedback about how to best go about the job.
Human Resources Specialist/Workforce (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – December 11, 2016
A lot of cliques within the department. Management is a joke. They are too busy not doing their jobs and trying to be their employees girlfriends. No room for growth unless you are in good with management.
Off every Friday, good benefits, nice people.
Unprofessional and management does not address issues in the department.
Environmental Resources Manager (Current Employee) – Peoria, AZ – February 7, 2016
Energetic and passionate Mayor who cares about and values our most precious resource, Water! The City weathered the economic downturn without layoffs or furloughs due to its sound financial principles and policies and compassionate leadership.
Recreation Leader (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – January 25, 2016
I started my tenure with the city of Peoria in 2014. Being a rec leader was my first job and I can honestly say it was a fun one. Interacting with students and co-workers was the best part of the job. The bosses were relatively understanding and for the most part allowed flexible scheduling when given advanced notice. My largest complaint about having worked here was the interaction with parents. In my entire year and a half stint with the city, I never once saw a city employee lose their patience with a parent. The same cannot be said for the parents. And when the parents (or guardians) of the children complained to our bosses about how the program was run, the blame would immediately be placed on the recreation leaders despite our bosses being the ones in charge at the end of the day.
