Most enjoyable job.
Pittsfield (Current Employee) –  Pittsfield, MAApril 30, 2017
My job at the school department has made me a better a person. I enjoy working with children that need me either emotional or with their education. I have also learned so much from them. Sometimes life is hard but somebody else's life could be a lot worse. And a smile can go a long way in life.
Pros
Breaks, Sick days and maternity leave
Cons
Not enough subs

There is nothing good that I can state about this place. I do not recommend any one applying here. The management is the worst that I have ever encountered in my working career. Unbelievable how lousy employees are treated here. My word of advise, run! do not work here.

Unproductive, very poor place to work, don't waste your time.
PAST WWTPO MOPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Pittsfield, MAOctober 29, 2015
Very poor place to work. The pay for a WWTP Operator is the lowest in the state. Very dirty place to work. Employees are treated like dirt. You will be working weekends at your base rate of pay, not at an overtime rate. Sometimes only 8 hours between shifts and paid at your base rate. Plan on working Holidays. The plant is staffed 24/7. You will be required to work any shift and that may change at any time. Sometimes all 3 shifts in the same week. Plan on working in the rain, snow, hot sun, and any terrible weather conditions. If you have a waste water licence there are many other places to work where you will be treated with respect, paid well, and appreciation. STAY AWAY!!!
Pros
None
Cons
Treated like a piece of menur!!!
