Administrative Assistant/Clerk, Santa Barbara, CA - July 27, 2015
This office is one of the most interesting in Santa Barbara, with arguably the nicest view. It's located right on the beach and is the headquarters for the Santa Barbara City Lifeguards as well as the Parks and Recreation Department for the City of Santa Barbara. The work can be tedious and repetitive at times which was my chief complaint; though nice co-workers, a stellar boss, and competitive compensation and benefits more than made up for the mundane aspect of the job itself. There was opportunity for advancement, should one decide that was a suitable career path for oneself; though typical government bureaucracy might have made it difficult for certain people to get ahead.
