Poor work-life balance, poor management

Job was not as described, worked 60-80 hr weeks (salaried position). Supervisory staff was very prone to going around supervisors to interact with their staff, giving direct orders without keeping department heads in the loop. It was expected for department heads to create city wide events with less than 3 days notice. Supervisors would constantly intervene in the events, changing things at last minute. Very stressful, do not recommend.

Pros

Good insurance

Cons

poor work-live balance, poor management

Water Plant Operations very intriguing

Working for the city of Edinburg is a great place to work when you have good supervisors that actually care about their employees! All of the departments we have offer different job duties and some is really hard work but if you come and do your job right the pay and benefits they offer help put food on the table and help take care of your family! Just keep your head down and work hard and remember who it is your working for!

So relaxed

A very chill environment. A great job for someone who wants a low stress job. There isn't much collaboration between employees which causes a lot of miscommunication. Also, at least in this division, there aren't clear responsibilities per supervisor. They each just glide through each day (usually watching netfix).

Great coworkers

Management is horrible at the solid waste department! Thomas Enrique is the worst fleet manager! Lacks management , lacks basic mechanical skills, never was a mechanic but yet tells his “mechanics “ how to do things;Overall he’s the worst supervisor/manager I’ve come to meet! Coworkers were great ppl. Overall this place is not the best

Pros

Coworkers

Cons

Everything

Good retirement job if your willing to handle how under paid you will be and the Drama.

Soild Waste Department... Well to keep it simple, turnaround rate is HORRIBLE, went through 5 Supervisors. All them QUIT they were not fired. And countless fellow employees of other positions, Drivers, Heavy equipment operators, Mechanics, labourers, Medium equipment operators, secretaries, etc etc. Something is going on for the turnaround rate to be bad. They hire supervisors that have no experience in running a fleet or shop or a landfill. Other thing is the drama, everybody talks about Everybody. Even Supervisors are in on this drama. Very unprofessional. Other thing is they make you take your vacation all 3 weeks in a row when they tell you to. Unless your one of the favorites they could work with you a bit. If something goes wrong they will find someone to blame and write them up. Write up's do get worded to their side,if they dont like how the supervisor worded it then the main office at the landfill location will redo it to their liking so the employee will deffantly be in the wrong. I Have been in the presence of Supervisors apologizing to an employee after a write up that they didnt want to give. And how also how that the write up presented to employee wasn't the original write up from the Supervisor that it was "Reworded" by someone else. In all Seriousness This department really needs to be looked into. Now for the good things, 3 weeks paid off, paid holidays off, Christmas bonus. And that's about it... Best advice is just do your job and stay away from everyone.

Pros

Paid 3 week vacation, paid holidays off, retirement.

Cons

Inexperienced Supervisors, Drama, they have favorites, the pay is very low.

Can't Have your Cake and Eat it Too.

Once again, they're taking our Cost of Living. Does it really add up even the most necessity of the cost of living that they're going to take away once again. I mean it's just a measly $20 to $32 more that we get for all that. The city should consider all the working ants. They should understand that they once used to be hard working ants and once they moved up they no longer care or consider how hard it is to pay for things with our extremely low wages.

Pros

Health Benefits

Cons

No Bonuses; Cost of Living; Raises.
