No full time positions, even after 20 years, most positions are done by who you know. However, most employees are very helpful, friendly, except the city council / threatening and they are immune to labor relations complaints.

Office Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 13, 2018
Disagreements amongst management is all too common and if they make a mistake they point the finger at someone in a lower position. If you want a city job only accept a full time position as part time employees are treated horribly. "part time employees are employed "at will" and serve at the pleasure of the appointing authority". That appointing authority can be anyone even if they are not technically management or qualified to be a manager. Also, healthcare will run you nearly half your paycheck for decent coverage.

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – May 15, 2017
The community services department is a great place to work while attending college. They are very flexible with hours, they often worked with me to find a work schedule which fit into my school and study schedule. In addition they provide a fun work culture.
It is a great place to work considering that you are constantly moving and involved with your fellow co-workers along with the participants.
Team Leader I (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 26, 2016
Everyday, my coworkers and I work with numerous kids (anywhere from 30-80) providing them with activities to do during school, after school, and during the summer. Since we are under the community service department, we tend to participate in many activities promoting social skills, physical activity, and learning outside of school.
ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATOR/PUBLIC WORKS (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – December 28, 2015

Administrative Secretary - Public Works (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 25, 2014
I typically start my day off with responding to emails/voicemails. I've learned a great deal about Public Works and working with a City council. Management is supportive and easy to talk to. The hardest part is fighting boredom and watching individuals around that are compensated more and do less while you also do their job. The most enjoyable part are the people.
I'm able to carpool and I've saved a ton on tolls and gas.
The City of Irvine is an extremely well managed organization.
Information Technology Administrator (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 21, 2014
Irvine stood by its employees through several economic challenges over its 40+ year organizational history. It's comforting to know your employer appreciates dedication, and chooses the path of both fiscal responsibility and loyalty to its workforce. Irvine is one of the few municipalities to make it through the recession with no reduction of public services, solid reserves, solid fiscal management, no forced staff reductions during the recession, and a clear plan for an even brighter future.
Excellent pay and benefits, strong loyalty to employees, solid financial status.
The organization is currently running very lean, with very high productivity demands on a reduced workforce.
Administrative (Former Employee) – Irvine – May 8, 2014
I guess it's OK if you're just out of college or you're a fitness instructor, but my experience working as administrative staff at this entity was miserable. I and many others I know are glad to be out of there. : /
