Wastewater Plant Operator (Current Employee) – Palm Desert, CA – June 1, 2017
Most of my co-workers are good people, but the attitude of higher grades = less work doesn't fly with me. Management has allowed this negative attitude because everyone who is in management/supervision moved up the ranks together and never made a point to move beyond friendships. The poor morale is also due to the fact that the district has stopped granting merit increases, so no one really cares about how much is taught to the new employees.
Small plant, combined lunch and breaks
No merit increases, poor morale, sloppy co-workers
Accountinng and Payroll (Former Employee) – Coachella, CA – June 7, 2012
I started as a temporary employee working in the Accounting Dept and then was transferred (in the same hallway 2 doors down) to Human Resources/Payroll. I cannot tell you what a privelage it was to work there with some of the best people I have ever met and worked with!! It is like one big happy family!! I would love to work there again!! The only downside was I had been there for a year and had applied directly to CVWD to work there! I was about 1 week away and the person that left on leave, decided at the last minute to come back to the company!! So, I had to leave. Broke my heart! Made some real good friends and loved working there!!
