Inexperienced Formans and Supervisors
Vehicle Operator III (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 15, 2018
There are better cities to work for that has better pay and management. Don't waste your time working at a place that doesn't value your time and skill set. There is constant miscommunication. Even though we're all under the City of Detroit, the different departments compete and go against one another. Even to the point of making it impossible to complete your work during your shift.
They promote people based off of how long someone worked for the city. So you'll often have inexperienced formans and supervisors that you basically have to train so that they can manage you(?). Great workers, like myself, don't get rewarded with raises, praise, and opportunity. Great workers get the most work and the harder assignments while everyone else just sits around and do nothing majority of the shift.
The pay is by far one of, if not, the lowest throughout the state doing thee EXACT same work. I'm talking $4-5 /hr difference.
I hope in the near future they get their act together. I just won't be there to witness/benefit from it. And this is all coming from a Detroit resident. I was excited to start working for my city, but that excitement quickly turned into annoyance and regret.
