Customer Service Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – December 4, 2018
Department managers are totally bias. You must fit in their circle to be acknowledged when opportunities are present. Raises are based upon how well liked you are. Job advancement is given to certain races of people. If you ever disagree with management your career is over.
The city of Fort Worth has a big issue in the streets department high turn over . The people coming in make moor money than the person that has been on the job . There is a good old boy buddy system at work .when applying for a new position you will get pick over even if you are qualified with a education. Management has poor leadership and no accountability. IT is sad that so many people with good talent and leadership come to a job and never given a opportunity to help the city.
Code Enforcement Officer (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 28, 2018
Investigate complaints from citizen. Understanding the minimum building standards. Management is selective when it's time for a promotion (already picked their candidate before posting job openings). Fun to communicate with co-workers.
Pool Attendant (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 18, 2018
Being a public servant and dealing with people can be a struggle. I enjoyed my time with my co workers and customers but not immediate management because it was all a dynasty/nepotism. You don't agree with a manager's decision and suddenly you make enemies with the whole chain of command. I get that it was a seasonal job and an employee but to outright say my job is not guaranteed for next year is a big red flag. When I took the job i signed on with the agreement that is was part time 20 hours at max, yet was always scheduled for 35 to 40 and they didn't even pay me for all hours worked. They told me it was ok to go find another job if i wasn't happy. I did and was basically fired because my new job offered more and they said if I wasn't loyal I did not belong there.
I would rather have signed up for another department
Water Systems Mechanic 1 (Former Employee) – Holly Water Treatment Plant – September 27, 2018
Bosses play favorites, show that you have more knowledge towards something and they ignore you. Then they repeat everything you say word for word like they knew it. I wouldn't reccomend this place to anyone. At least not a water systems mechanic 1 position to anyone. Not much room for advancement, raises aren't likely.
Police Officer/Sergeant (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – September 17, 2018
The city of Fort Worth Police Department is currently experiencing the worst Chief of Police in history. The culture is one of political motivation and not one of supporting the employees. Rules are irrelevant as is following the laws on the books to uphold policy.
Police Officer (Former Employee) – City of Fort Worth – September 6, 2018
Great guys I worked with and good pay. Too many in chain of command (too many chiefs and not enough Indians). We all pulled together and we looked out for each other. It felt good knowing the citizens of Fort Worth were behind us and supported the police department.

FAIR HOUSING INVESTIGATOR (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – August 15, 2018
Working for the CFW gave me the opportunity to work from home, on occasion. With what appeared to be yearly budget cuts, our work load increased while our pay did not. I stayed with the City for so long because I loved my team and what I did. Although I took work home because of the large amount of work we had on top of other responsibilities, I did enjoy my time with the City.
Senior Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – June 22, 2018
Stressful, hardest part of job is the work culture, and no regards to your family life. The Water Department has a large turn over rate. Hard to take off for Family emergencies, required to work overtime at any given minute
