Getting Progressively Worse
Written by Clerical Aide (Current Employee) from Fort Collins, CO on June 18, 2018
The job started out great, but as some people have been promoted to higher positions the quality of work life has gone down drastically. They do not care about the employees. After the schedule is put out the manager assigns you to extra shifts without asking if you're available. There's tons of downtime, but you get in trouble for not doing anything.
coworkers, good for extra money
No breaks what so ever, no lunch even on 8 hour shifts, no raises, poor management

City Review
Written by Clerical Aide (Current Employee) from Fort Collins, CO on September 21, 2018
The City of Fort Collins is a great place to work but very little chance to go further and extremely competitive. I really enjoy working with all of the employees.
