Residential/Commercial construction inspection. Understaffed, tons of inspections those with seniority are given at least half the inspections. The new person is giving a ton of inspections and asked to not get overtime. A lot of challenging personalities. Never told good job only told what you did wrong. The chief inspector is great, but he is overworked.
Work/ life balance
Insurance is horrible. Pay is better than most cities but there is a reason why. Micromanaged

Jobs at City of Arlington
kennel manager is unprofessional, rude, doesn't care about staff or animals. just a paycheck for her. she plays favoritism, so if you arent on her good side, you do not get days off as asked for, nor promoted. she promoted someone who got there after current part time employees, which was unfair to the ones who put the time in. you get blamed for things others do ( or don't do) she talks down on employees in front of others, is constantly talking about other employees behind their backs, and bullies employees as well as allowing it from other staff.
get to try and save animals
Worked in two different departments within the city, parks and rec and handitran. Both jobs were 100% secure but both lacked in pay. You did have decent benefits, and flexible hours, but the pay was always on the low side.
Beginning of Day Come to work, clock in Discuss (in office) what the plan is for that day Stock our trucks up for that day Get the computer in the truck started up Fill the truck up with gas Head out into the field End of day (if necessary) fill truck up with gas Wash truck off with "high pressure" water spray tools if any time is left drive to the dump, (remove metal water meter lids and throw them in metal lids pile),(remove trash from inside of truck and bed of truck into the dumpster).
poor flexible schedule
I have been with they City for a total of 6 years. Being a City employee you do received great benefits and dependent upon your position, your pay is usually decent. I have received three promotions during my tenure with the City and have advanced quickly. The main and major issue I have is with the horrible supervisor I have. This person is has been verbally abusive, non-supportive, lack of care in work relationship, and a poor leader. This is the main reason I am considering another position or career change. This person has made my work environment and day to day an extremely unwelcoming place to be. I would work anywhere else in the City, but no longer will I work in the Golf Division for the City.
I found the city of Arlington much lower than other cities like when I went to work for Keller. Although I took on many additional responsibilities in the water Department I enjoyed , the compensation for doing so was very limited
Poor raises and benefits
Great place to work. The management is amazing. The most important thing that i learned from this experience was how to make anything work. the objective was to get something done and you had to figure out a way for it to happen.
Amazing work enviornment
Not enough hours
