Broken Arrow as a whole is a good place to work
Wastewater Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKJuly 29, 2019
The City of Broken Arrow as a whole is a wonderful place to work. The Wastewater Treatment plant is a hostile environment. I would not recommend anyone to work there. The management is self centered and treats the employees like slaves while the good ole boy system is used for employees that are friends with the management outside of work.
Pros
Insurance and pay
Cons
Non existant breaks, Hostile atmospheare, work assignments unfair

People are ok. Management is terrible. They do not coach on mistakes. They simply note in your personnel file, move you to another area and call it a day.
Pros
none
Cons
Management is awful

City of Broken Arrow (Former Employee) –  Broken ArrowDecember 5, 2018
DO NOT WORK HERE! They are morally wrong. They asked me to do things I would never want to do. They asked me to collect late fees that were $7 and asked me to threaten families that we would cut the utilities today if they didn't pay a $7 late fee... Horrible company, DO NOT WORK HERE! YOU WILL HATE YOUR OWN LIFE AND YOU WILL REGRET BEING A HUMAN!

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKAugust 28, 2018
9 hour work day most days were typical
The main thing I learned was about construction contracts.
Management was ineffective for the most part.
The culture was stressful.
The hardest part of the job was unrealistic expectations.
The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with the public.

Good place to work except for some issues with management
One-Stop Manager (Former Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKJanuary 25, 2018
A typical day was one where you could perform your job with little interference by upper management. However, a couple of the higher ups never had a problem fabricating things so they could fire you. And, HR is known for ignoring problems and letting good people go in spite of the evidence that supported the employee, not the firing directors. It is too bad that several co-workers I know were very good at their jobs, but because they refused to violate the U.S. Constitution and state law, the directors found reasons to fire them.
Pros
Closer to home town feel
Cons
Golden boy directors who cannot do wrong, even though they violate the law

Office Manager (Former Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKMarch 14, 2017
There is plenty of job security with this company however not much opportunity for advancement. They prefer to hire from outside the company for new positions so as not to loose the people in their current positions.

Productive and fun work place
Lifeguard (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKJanuary 31, 2017
A typical day as a lifeguard includes many opening duties to get the pool prepared for the day and to check to make sure everything is running properly. It also includes ensuring patrons safety and enforcing all rules effectively, and responding to accidents and emergency situations in a professional manner. There are a lot of responsibilities as a lifeguard, but it has been a lot of fun.

what you learned - City business

your co-workers are typically out of the office due to meeting structure and lean running capacity
