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.

Santation Worker (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – June 20, 2015
I've learned throughout the times I've worked here you have to remain patience because it was always a negative energy flowing around . You would think the management in charge would run a better foundation but they're too concerned on whats going on in other peoples lives when they are so many complaints about the routes not getting picked up the schedule times . I also proven myself numerous of times that I deserve a raise. I learn and move quicker when I`m doing the assignment than your average working man and a team leader . I could get along and work well with all of my coworkers.

Garage Attendant/Cashier (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – January 26, 2015
Daily duties would include customer contact, cash handling, and balancing paperwork at the end of the evening. Phone contact- we provided a lot of information for customers concerning the parking lots and navigating the city ( mostly vacationers). We had our regular customer who's contact and contract info was recorded along with their monthly payments. Management was not usually on hand- attendants are self motivated workers. dealing with gate problems ( gate not lifting-card scanner not receiving information ) while dealing with in-person contact was difficulty but manageable. I enjoyed working on my own- keeping my work up to date and helping my customers with information.
