Lakes and Open Space Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Escondido, CAJuly 27, 2018
The city as a whole is a well greased machine. There is a lot of room for improvement so there is always room to bring new skills and ideas to the table. All departments work well together and lean on each other for support. Overall a great place to work.

Concrete worker (Former Employee) –  Escondido, CAJanuary 9, 2018
The days started early and the days were hot. Everyday brought on new challenges. Being a concrete worker was a hard back breaking job, but was very satisfying. Was able to learn so much and use these skills in everyday life and around the home doing DIY jobs.
The foreman was a great teacher and patient while always striving for the best.
Being in Southern California, many cultures to work with. All employees were treated fairly, despite of their backgrounds.
Being a concrete worker, was a back breaking job, very tough. Both physically and mentally, had to know how to much concrete is needed in yards. Proper forming, pouring, smoothing of concrete and the regulations governing the thickness of the concrete.
Most enjoyable part is learning another skill, having the satisfaction of knowing that I am able to do a skill job that not anyone can perform.
Pros
Love the type of work I was performing
Cons
Was only a part time employee

Environment Programs Dept. Assistant (Former Employee) –  Public Works and City HallOctober 29, 2017
Overall it was a pretty good place to work. However, with 16 years of service, I only had one pay raise. Too much of the City's money was being paid out to high level retirees and there was no designated way for lower level employees to improve themselves or improve upon their salaries.
Pros
Variety in my job; some teaching, some administrative work, etc.
Cons
Some of the lifting required was physically challenging for me.

Not a good place to work
Staff (Current Employee) –  Escondido, CASeptember 29, 2017
Managers do not care about employee self esteem. I got a 5 cent raise one year and nothing the next. Manager is on a power trip and likes to put employees down; takes no input.

Swim Instructor/Lifeguard (Former Employee) –  Escondido, CASeptember 18, 2015
The hardest part of the job was not teaching swim lesson, but sometimes after class parents would approach me regarding their child’s progression in the class, and I would have to address the situation in a bathing suit and no towel.

Politics
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Escondido, CAMarch 25, 2015
This position allows to establish working relationships with other members of the City's staff. There are very loyal and dedicated individuals, but it's a City, so of course there is going to be politics. I was employed with the city for 10 years, and was never actually promoted to a position that was classified full time or had benefits even though I was considered a key staff member.

Overall, if you can get a full time position, then it's a great place to work.

Working at the Escondido Public Library is a great place to build new skills and interact with the public along with outside public agencies. It is a great place to assist individuals in whatever needs they have and it is also a great place to find and offer resource information.
