Fine. Not may people think of a municipality as a place to work, but Arvada does a good job in making it a viable career choice.
What would you suggest City of Arvada management do to prevent others from leaving?
Evaluate some of the in-place governance ruling employees and management. Are they old and outdated?
What is the vacation policy like at City of Arvada? How many vacation days do you get per year?
Vacation/Paid leave is handed out like candy. Most salary positions allow for 12 annual vacation days, 12 sick days, 2 flex holidays (ontop of the ten everyone gets), and a wellness day... In our department you were allowed to accrue up to 40hours of comp time... So 32 days in a year AT A MINIMUM!
8-9 hours, but it is common practice to leave early another day if you work longer hours, or bank the flex time.
I think that it has dips and rises in employment. During the spring and summer there are a lot of seasonal workers hired on for the just the summer.
