Fun and learning environment for students
Human Resource Program Coordinator/Program Manager (Current Employee), SacramentoJune 20, 2015
Pros: Inspiring young people lives and making a difference for every avenue possible
Cons: no benefits, healthcare, not reliable, seasonal
Overall, my position allows me for advancement at all times and gave me the opportunity to learn management skills. A typical day at work would be to manage a site of 112 students and 5 line staff. My job is to make sure that our After school program is providing a safe, fun and learning environment for our students. Facilitating and training my staffs to give the best and effective customer services to our families. The hardest part of my job is that when school is not in session we are not working and it does create a financial dent. Although, I love what I do for our young people and I've been with this company for almost 8 years. The most enjoyable part of my job is to see students attend our program and refuses to leave at the end of the day because they had fun. Making a difference in our young peoples lives is what I currently do.

Pros: Teamwork is excellent, opportunity to grow and to develop.
Cons: You have pay to park if you work here. Some city employees get to park at City Hall, but most just park in a paid parking garage.
This a great place to get your foot in the door if you are looking to work in Information Technology. My job includes providing IT related services to other city employees in downtown Sacramento. I also provide remote assistance and as well as documenting for inventory of computers and other equipment, such as printers, mobile phones, monitors. I have knowledge of also performing hardware prepare. Seriously, it is a fantastic job working a team who is very talented and very proficient at what they do. I always have coworkers who can help me. We work together as a team. My supervisor is a great person to get along with, so enthusiastic and able to check on me and my performance in the workplace and tell me what I need to fix. Not many supervisors do that. This is a great environment to work in. I enjoy it very much.

City of Sacramento has various parks and recreation programs focused on the youth of Sacramento. This programs provides after school tutoring, enrichment activities and field trips.

The program includes various enrichment options including dance, step, choir, science and robotics and more. The management is very understanding to each students needs and allows the staff to create their own enrichment programs to meet these needs. Overall a great program for kids of all ages.

I had a great time working for my supervisor she was an excellent boss. I appreciate the opportunity she gave me that nobody else did.
Clerical Assistant (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: free food on various holidays, birthdays, meetings.
Cons: parking was horrible. (downtown area)
A typical day at work started with updating my boss on her meetings, messages, memos, ext. Then if needed I'd format agendas for meetings. I'd also make sure all of my bosses files and documents were in order. Various typical office tasks was an everyday thing. Any free time I had I spent on the Microsoft Office Training Program, I learned a few tricks to various office programs. Around lunch time I'd go get my boss something to eat if she was still in her meetings, so she can eat before heading to her next meeting. After lunch i'd make sure she had all of her meetings were re-updated, i'd also send out meeting requests if needed. I sorted all of her email to individual folders by person or topic. I'd typically end the day with making sure our office area was clean and organized and made sure all office supplies were stocked for the following day. My co-workers were very kind, there were quiet ones but I was quiet myself, I got along with everyone I never had any issue with a co-worker. They were all very enjoyable to work with and i learned a lot from them with work lessons and life lessons. The hardest part of the job was having to leave it for school.

Typist Clerk II- Building and Fire Permits (Former Employee), Sacramento, caJanuary 3, 2014
Pros: good people, close to home at the time
Cons: temp position, mostly male enviroment
I was a temp for the City, but during that time I learned alot about the permit process and how important it is for people homes and business. I worked with alot of older men, infact I was the only women in the department. But was treated with respect and as an equal. Because I was a temp assigned to help them catch up on back logged work it made it hard to fill the day once we were caught up. I most enjoyed the department dinner night. Once a month we would get together as a team and all go to dinner and get to know each other as people not just co-workers.
