COMMUNITY SERVICE WORKER (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – November 8, 2018
Would enjoy working for the City of Dallas again. The City of Dallas does not thrive off firing their employees but will give them a chance to make things right, that was not the case for me. I had to resign because I had to deal with a major health issue but I am well now and am still striving to go back.
GIS Analyst III, Trinity Watershed Management (Former Employee) – Downtown Dallas – October 11, 2018
Constant micromanagement with constant review of progress(daily) Management easily angered by small errors. seems friendly at first but soon turns into overseer type of management. Work constantly over viewed and changed after being told to do it your way. Training that would improve work ignored in favor of do it my way or the highway
Deputy Clerk (Former Employee) – 2014 Main st dallas tx – September 25, 2018
Working at the City of Dallas in the records Department was an introduction to the court system.It was the catalyst to further a career in law and comprehension on how it is ran.Anyone interested in going into law prior to being a paralegal I would recommend working for a court system to familiarize your self with the environment.
Office Assistant Il (Current Employee) – dallas, texas – September 17, 2018
I enjoyed working at the City of Dallas. You meet a lot of interesting people. It might be a face-paced environment but if you enjoy that, like I do then its a great company to work for. There is, of course, some managers and co-workers that do not always appreciate a good, hard working person when they have them on their team. But if I had a chance to get hired for the City of Dallas full time, then I would take it.
some places were fun. Just depends what dept you are located at

RECREATION CENTER ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Texas – August 19, 2018
If you start as a Part time it is REALLY HARD I mean REALLY HARD to move up. Rec center close late! Part timers need to close the building EVERY NIGHT. Work EVERY Saturday. You are never out by the time your schedule says because of reservations or events going on. If your part time no paid vacations,no benefits, no nothing! You can ONLY get 20 hours and NO OVER TIME. When you get paid they take retirement money out and taxes. You pay check comes out really small. Full time staff spend all day at work working 9 hrs a day. There is no life balance..
All holidays off but no pay. Sundays off.
No over time, closing every night, hard to get days off, no benefits, no paid days off, super hard to move up.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 5, 2018
I work 5 days a week for Dallas Fire Department. I'm over the Special Events Section. I schedule part-time work for medics on their day off. Events include: Parades, races, concerts, festival etc; My job requires me to work on weekends also. I have learned how to work with computers, schedules, relationships with clients, action plans and payroll. The fire department is a real good place to work for as for as workplace structure. The hardest part of my job is having to open up 400 emails a day. The most enjoyable part of my job is putting in over 50 hours of work for a big event and event the event ran smoothly.
Making medics happy by getting them part time work.
Long hours and alot of time being away from my family.
Electrician (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 24, 2018
Excellent place to work at ... but with major needs to improve management from the Director, to the Managers on duty. But a great place to work. Specially for the Great Influence that Our City has over most of the smaller towns/cities in the area.
Theres room for growth at the cod, you learn how to bill accounts and what makes the city of dallas function as far as code compliance. The most enjoyable part about my job is there is opportunity to grow with the city of dallas
