TH Analyst II/Sr. IS/IT Help Desk Coordinator (Former Employee) – Downtown Houston, TX – August 9, 2018
While working at the City of Houston, my job was to provide computer support to the users in the department. Upon arrival at my home location, I would look at received requests, prioritize according to business need, and start my day. I always enjoyed the autonomy and interaction with my peers. The diversity, traditions, and multiple cultures that existed in the city department I provided service to made my daily tasks interesting and delightful!
I love working for the City of Houston. The benefits are great and the culture is very family oriented. I met several friends whom I plan to maintain friends with them. I learned a lot and found my job to be very fulfilling. I was in a position to help citizens who were victims of crime by seeking justice. In addition I was able to provide information regarding resources they may qualify for depending on their situation.

a typical work day would fly by because we worked with the public and we stayed busy with is a great thing. I learned a lot about permits and helping other. It takes a lot of patients. Our management team was awesome and very helpful. The hardest part of the job would be when your customer didn't meet all the standards and you have to be the one to tell him what he / she are missing. But with a right attitude and positive tone it usually ends with a huge thanks for directing me and sitting with me.
Career Coach (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 8, 2018
A typical work day was easy going and I could work at my own pace. I learned many things while working with the Interns. They have very different personalities as well as abilities to perform the various skills that were asked of them. Management and supervisors worked well with me in providing comprehensive information so that it would be a win win for me and the intern. The workplace culture was very relaxed with No unnecessary pressure to achieve my work performance. The hardest part of my job was keeping up with my visitation of Aquatics interns because of their schedules. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to know each intern internsinternindividual
Free lunches and flexible time with family emergencies
Often the interns time sheets were not ready/completed for pick-up

Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 26, 2018
I was promised one salary and it was never provided after a year and half. I also exceeded the expectations I also implemented new policies as well as created two new policies that provided additional income for the company besides the sales. After bringing in new business as well as building lasting relationships with a number of companies to provide services to, my effort and accomplishments were not recognized nor did I ever receive the bonuses that were promised after sealing the deals.
I love working out in the field and seeking and providing the need of the community
There was no compensation, and we were not provided with benefits as promised.
I have worked for the COH for nearly 10 years in a Elected Officials office. They need more structure and training. The overall environment is not what it should be for such an important piece of the City of Houston.

I like working for the city of Houston it's a good place to work benefits pretty good and supervisors and upper management are very nice I never had any problems with either.
