Most veteran officer's are tired and beaten down. Pay is still not back up to where it should be for a city of this size. Generally a good group of people to work with. A lot of the good officers quickly move on to other places where they are more appreciated.
I was a lifeguard and loved it. Paid very well and thought you a lot about the working world as a high schooler. If you missed just 3 days over the course of the summer (I.e calling out) you’re contract is terminated and you’re fired. Many may see that’s harsh but they are accommodating on getting almost every requested day off. Managers and all co workers are nice and friendly. Great place to work
Recreation Assistant (Former Employee) – Parks and Recreation – March 18, 2018
Working for Parks and Rec they expect the employees to work out of their title without the title or pay for what they do on a daily basis. They have too many contract employees who do not stay since they leave as soon as they get a position with benefits and more money so it is constant hiring and training new staff that is such a waste of money I’m sure. Plus a waste of time training new people all the time. I do feel seasonal or someone who is retired wanting a part time job to supplement there retirement should be contract but if you work year round you should be a full time employee. And they should pay the contract employees more since they do not receive benefits.
Finance Dept/Purchasing excellent forward looking organization. Great management, dedicated employees. Occasionally difficult to change mindsets of some in different departments, but overtime perceived value was increased.
City Background Investigator (Current Employee) – Cape Coral, FL – December 11, 2017
Great environment, solid community based employer, enjoys the respect and support of the community. From the top down all are interested in the betterment of the community. An organization that I am proud to be a member of.
Working for the city on a daily level was a very fun experience. As my first job as an adult cape coral was able to teach me a lot about basic work ethic and gave me a lot of good people to be around while learning.
Working for the City of Cape Coral was an interesting experience. I believe there are people who would love the routine of this position. Routines were easy and somewhat physically demanding. Overall I realized I would not be able to move up the ladder as quickly as I wanted to because length of employment is the ultimate factor for advancement.

I work a 12 hour shift which I love. I meet a lot of interesting people throughout the day. I write many reports and I am very well spoken. I have to were many hats through out the week. I am peace keeper at one call and report taker on the next. The biggest benefit of the job is helping the ones that can not help themselves.
Great flexibility and overall great place to work. There was a great deal of changes made in the course of one (1) year. Division management could have been better. Co-workers were amazing. Difficulty would be dealing with division management that had poor training skills, lacked interpersonal skills, and was out of touch with management a team that was less than 5 division employees.
As above. Problem is the economy and my job has gone from 38 hours to 28 hours. Everyone is wonderful and it will be hard to have to leave such a great group of coworkers and supervisors. I have a family to provide for and cannot continue on 28 hours a week w/o benefits.
Low hours and with economy, no possibility of full-time work at this time.
