Parking Enforcement Officer (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – April 5, 2017
City of Savannah is a great agency to work. The management can be challenging depending on what department you are in. The good thing is you can apply to transfer into what ever department you like. The City can be very political but that's with any city especially one that caters to the tourist like Savannah.
Great Supervisor, great co-workes, very helpful and vehicle.
Department does not provide gear to be out in weather conditions. Rain rear, light jacket, umbrella, etc.

Sanitation Worker (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – December 30, 2016
The job in itself is not bad,the people there do not promote or encourage each other. Upper management seems to not care about the small people. Some of the employees do not even know who their Superiors are outside of the supervisor. The City Manager and Mayor need to come talk to the employees to see how they feel and get an understanding for what these employees do for the city of Savannah.

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 29, 2016
The work I did with the City of Savannah was wonderful. It made me feel good that I made so many people happy by helping them. The most enjoyable part of working with them is the people that are helped in the process, they are very grateful for our volunteering
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 1, 2016
Working for the city enabled me to go back to school and obtain a degree. I learned to work with others to get the job done. Working outside was very much enjoyable, but the hardest part of the job was its uneducated management.
The city was a great place to work, but the work environment was not the best for career growth or true development.
Human Resources Analyst (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – June 29, 2016
Management is not qualified for their positions nor do they operate fairly. In my opinion there is only success for people who are members of the "Good Ole Boys Club." If you grew up in Savannah and know the right people you succeed no matter what. Those from the outside do not get the same opportunities and fail to truly prosper.
Great job, enjoyable, teaches you to become repsonsible
Senior Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – April 10, 2016
Hardest part about being the senior lifeguard would be having to be a boss to people around your age and to your friends. Your co-workers vary because you could have either good or bad workers, but for the main part they get their part of the job done, the most enjoyable part would be the fact you actually are doing good for the community; saving lives and teaching kids water safety and how to survive in the water. With this job I learned responsibility, how to manage time, how to sacrifice things, and how to be a supervisor and also still be a friend. A regular day being a lifeguard consists of cleaning the pool and pool area in the morning, teaching lessons, going on break, coming back for free swim (this is when you lifeguard), having swim team practice, cleaning the bathrooms after free swim, teaching more lessons in the afternoon, and then your day is done.
great money, fun
not many breaks, hot, kids can be nuisances, long hours
