I could see in the office they need someone to organize all the file and have back up on the computer files.
It was the best position to get me back in workforce

For some reason, Glendale; with 2 malls, restaurants on top of restaurants, thinks it is better than not only LA county and all the unincorporated areas of the county who's minimum wage is $15 dollars an hour but because Glendale is incorporated in LA county it is allowed to pay only $13 dollars an hour. If unincorporated areas have to pay the same as LA county why on earth are the actual incorporated areas exempt?.
Anything to not pay a proper wage

You must be patient when dealing with passengers and traffic, especially the drivers out there. Keep in mind Glendale has a high rate of accidents that is why it can be stressful in this type of environment.

I started out in the parks department, then was hired as a street maintenance worker. Working in concrete, then transferred to the asphalt street department. I spent five years on an asphalt patch truck alone honing my skills in street repairs, and assisting crews using a radio to communicate daily.I thrived in this position crafting myself as a worker in the field.

No industry related training and not allowed to join any business forum or discussion. Was asked to not sharing information with senior manager and work is always boss oriented. Employees are not experts of their work, but servants of the boss. Was threatened to “not come to work tomorrow “ at a business strategy meeting. Data was manipulated and revised for better showing. Groups are not working well together. Credits are given by exposure, not by credit base. Employees are not allowed to talk at business meetings even if they are experts of the aspects. HR process is a mess too. Employees are asked to not take sick leaves. Family leaves are declined for taking care of adoption parents just because they do not live in the same household. Position is terminated while employee is at sick leave.

Unqualified individuals in management roles. A lot of family and friends working there (hence unqualified individuals in important roles) that start as hourly and then later are "promoted" to salaried. Lack of diversity and inclusion.
Pros
Salary and work schedule.
Cons
Nepotism, poor management, lack of diversity and inclusion.

we were constantly busy and always on the move. I worked on a team of 4-5 people. we arranged for events such as rugby, movie nights, and other events.
The job wasn't difficult what so ever it was pretty self explanatory and with a team everything was much easier.
Pros
laid back, stress free
Cons
seasonal opportunity

Working with the DPW was a fun yet fulfilling time as we all worked together in maintaining the parks and environment in the area. The hardest part of the job was being able to rest from the summer heat, but we were given frequent breaks that helped with the issue.

I highly enjoyed the work. The balance between management and staff was not equally distributed. The company never took time to ask employees how their management is treating them.
