Recreation Leader III (Current Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – November 24, 2017
A typical shift with the city is making sure everything is up to standard for participants to enjoy their rental/practice/game. We work with both youth and adult sports throughout the year and I've learned a ton about coaching basketball and being a professional in general. Management is consistent with your weekly hours and they're very easy to contact and approach in person. I have never had a problem with any coworker with the city, we are a big family and everybody has each others back. Especially when things get rough, a coworker will always be by your side to help the situation. An example would be an adult being unhappy with how a game went in either a basketball/volleyball/softball league. Our employees are always on top of things and we do a great job of communicating back to our supervisors. The best part of the job would easily be working with kids and having awesome coworkers who genuinely care about their work and you as well.

Animal Control Officer (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, KS – June 8, 2016
A normal day including driving through town, talking with the public, investigation calls & complaints & caring for the animals in the shelter. I learned a lot about the laws of animal control. The management as well as my co-workers were very nice & helpful. The most difficult part of the job was seeing how some people can mistreat their animals. I loved being able to help when an animal was in need.
Recreation Leader II-Scorekeeper (Current Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – March 28, 2016
Overall, City of Pleasanton is a great place to work. They have an amazing staff and give youth a chance to build their resume with job experience. They were my first job and I still continue to work for them every summer I return from college. You were able to create a bond with your supervisors and co-workers every time you were on the clock.
