jobs not bad, trash is very labor intensive and your always making up slack for other people because no one comes to work. high turnover rate but the management and pay make it almost not worth working
management, pay, no one comes to work always short staffed
Working for the City of Charleston was the best decision I ever made. I enjoyed everyday and I got to work with children which was a plus. My managers were amazing people and I would recommend the job to anyone who loves children and likes having fun.
This was my first job out of college. Everyone was helpful and I learned a lot about the city government. I also learned how to plan and organize daily employees schedules, work with the community and valuable lesson of Responsibly .
Mayor (Current Employee) – Charleston, MS – February 19, 2018
The City of Charleston has given me an opportunity to advance my skills and education . My 14 years experience in local government has allowed me to face challenges and growth in my Interpersonal ability.
Learning the History of such an awesome and beautiful city provided an education that was not expected. Interacting with residents and tourists from around the world was a positive and productive experience. Walking 9-11 miles per day enforcing parking regulations was another story, rarely negative.
I enjoyed my time with the City of Charleston but HR had to place me else where for reasons not divulged to me. I had excellent work relationships with those around me and I had mostly good days duing my time with the city. The job would be stressful when customer would be irate but they were always handled with professionalism and understanding and was usually resolved.

Law Enforcement Officer (Current Employee) – Charleston, SC – October 16, 2017
CPD has it faults, but overall the career as a whole is failing. Its high stress, low pay and every organization including CPD is eager to appease public opinion by throwing its own officers under the proverbial bus.
The pay for this job is way too low for the amount of revenue our department brings into the city. Parking enforcement is the leading revenue earning department and is paid less than simple tourism officer.
verbal abuse from the citizens, lack of advancement and pay.
