Groundskeeper (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 19, 2014
Pros: nice hours, good training
Cons: no room for advancement, no benefits
My day consisted of maintaining the landscape around city parks in North Phoenix. I learned a lot about landscaping and general maintenance and gardening. I had daily interaction with the residents of Phoenix. The hardest part of the job was working out in the elements. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendly staff who were always willing to help in anyway possible and a set schedule.

Case Worker I promotion (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 24, 2014
A typical day at work for me consist of doing classroom visits, I have a case load of 80 families and parents come to my office to discuss their family goals and helping them achieve their goals by providing them with community resources available.
I have learned that each family and their members have to be treated individually and that I really enjoy working with the different cultures.
Our management division is always supportive and is open to new ideas as long as it for the benefit of the families in our program.
I have 10 co-workers in the same office and we all offer a unique approach to working with families and we work as a team and are supportive of each other.
The hardest part of the job for me knows that there are situations and circumstances that cannot be change no matter how hard we work because they are out of our control.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when the families reach their goals. This is a big deal for me because I am bilingual and I can see the progress with some families up close and I get to work with them for 2 years.

Airport Operations Assistant (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 22, 2014
Pros: benefits, pay, people
Cons: sometimes you were required to be very flexable in work environments, and or duty hours.
I was employed by the City of Phoenix for the past 22 years. During that time period I was a Park Ranger and later became an Operations Assistand at Sky Harbor Airport. The Ranger position was very enjoyable, because you had a lot of freedom to apply your abilities in many different areas, from Law Inforcement, too Horseback riding and/or Educating the public on environemental issues. While an Operations Assistant I performed mainly customer service duties, safety, and security. This enabled me to make many aquintances with folks from all over the world, and was the most interesting part of the job. Both jobs were at times tedious but enjoyable. Spending long hours on foot, horseback, or in a vehicle, was the hardest part, but it was well worth the experience.

Groundskeeper (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 10, 2014
Pros: very calming, working for the city had great benefits
Cons: not enough people to help take care of the tournaments
show up grab a gator and run the horse trails, checking for any signs of motorized activity or homeless people. if there is anything going on I was to inform in superior and then handled from there. Then back to maintaining the soccer and diamond back little league facility. Hardest part of my job was keeping the park clean when there were thousands of people there for the soccer tournaments. Reach 11 was a very calming place to come to work cause of its size.
