Human Resources Management Intern (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 31, 2018
Worked as an Intern and got to get my hands on a lot of special projects. People who work here are quite knowledgeable and willing to take time out of the day to mentor and grow new hires. Many opportunities to grow and develop from within the organization.
Director (Former Employee) – City Hall – May 7, 2018
The City of Houston is a great place to work if your goal is making a difference in the lives of everyday citizens. However, as with many places, politics (personal and partisan) can make an impact on job performance.
job security, the ability to write your own job description and develop professionally
infighting and lack of long-range planning outside of core areas
Case Manager / Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 2, 2018
This is great job to stay and keep as permanent job. The management is great as well. I have learned how our Mayor works so hard to be able to make things better for the City of Houston, I see it everyday, and it is hard the fact the sometimes the constituents don't understand how much money is needed to get back in our feet as Houstonians. I enjoy working to help people when they call our office.
Any position gives you the ability to work with the community/citizens on a daily basis on any needs or concerns they may have. Management change is a constant, so one who works here needs to be flexible.
Family Services/Transportation Coordinator (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – April 9, 2018
Supervision/Management is extremely poor. The supervisors, and Assistant Director have worked in the departmental for 35+ years. They are set in their ways and do not choose to accept any type of suggestions that could make things better. They abuse their privileges, harass their employees, and make the working environment stressful.

the work day at city of houston storm sewer consist of a variety of things from cleaning gutters to building a whole new storm sewer system.I learned how to be efficient as a worker,the importance of getting projects done on time,how to work in any weather condition,and the importance of the storm sewer system to a community. The workplace was great because they provided ample opportunites to move up including offering to pay for schooling dealing with advancement in your position.The people who worked along side me were great and provided mentorship through my life as a young man being that i was the youngest on the crew. I would say this job taught me how to become a working man and i greatly appreiate that.
Well basically it had its good times at work. I learned a few different things there such as working water main lines, water meters and fire hydrants. We ensured the customer to be in service with drinking water. We also preformed a small amount of light construction if the needed to make repairs on the job sight. Sometimes we would oversee and assist other employees on different jobs.
Custodial Services/Customer service (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – March 20, 2018
The benefits were great. Overall most of the employees were ok to work with. The supervisors could have been better, but I loved the fact that they provided classes that we could take to enhance our future.
it's been a experience, i liked working at the parks more they same better managed. being on call is very inconveniencing and not managed correctly. The opportunity to advance is not based on experience or knowledge but friendship or group,
