Some departments are very good to work in. Others are questionsable
Human Resources Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAAugust 14, 2018
I worked with a variety of people, both internal and external. I entered all the new hires, printed their employee ID badges, made sure they were enrolled in their benefits (vac, sick, LTII). Ran various reports for payroll purposes both daily & then monthly. Maintained employee personnel files. Provided help with recruiting for Civil Service personnel. That was the fun part of my job. Poor management in my department though. Opportunities for growth were rare.

Very Productive and Fun with great people
Crew Member (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJune 11, 2018
Great management at the Tait Cummins Concessions allowed for a great work environment with great people. Low working hours due to my own choice, and they always accommodated what I could and couldn't do. Would recommend!
Pros
Free Food! Very accommodating to busy schedules!
Cons
Short breaks

Very good job for slow paced personel
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJanuary 30, 2018
It wasn't a bad place to work just extremely slow paced and not very productive at all. Did maybe 2 hours of work in the 8 hour shifts. I wouldn't recommend to any of my friends to work there just because of that reason
Pros
Paid Vacation

Cedar Rapids is a great place to live
Lifeguard (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IASeptember 11, 2015
The cost of living is very low. There are lots of great trails and nature reserves. Many new areas spring up (or are revitalized) and thrive, like NewBo and Czechtown. The people here are very nice. I always thought this remark was cliche until I moved away.
Pros
low cost of living, close to nature, close to Iowa City, mid-sized city amenities
