I worked as a Recording Clerk which started off great but went down hill fast. When asking for a departmental transfer I was told that transfers happen on the Clerks time not when requested. Management was inexperience when dealing with people or should I say when dealing with me. I would not refer anyone to apply with the City of Jacksonville. There is not room for advancement unless you're in the click.
Firefighter (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – April 11, 2017
With the recent changes to the pension, it means you will have Firefighters working shoulder to shoulder, one on a defined benefit and the other on a defined contribution. The department will become a stepping stone as employees will gain valuable experience and move to where there are better benefits. Again, do your homework and understand what you are coming into by accepting a job with JFRD.
Stable job, promotions ample and available.
No pension for new employees, family healthcare is expensive.

Part-time Clerical (Former Employee) – Public Library, City of Jacksonville – February 7, 2017
A typical day at the Public Library is an enjoyable exchange between employees committed to serving the public and patrons who appreciated the available resource. Library services must keep up with technology so its employees are constantly learning to use new software and equipment. Management keeps focus on the work mission but also considers family commitments by offering sufficient time off in the benefits package. Working in the public library system exposes employees to people who may have no other comfortable place to spend the day which can be emotionally draining to witness. A diverse learning environment is the best way to describe the workplace culture. As an adult educator the greatest reward is helping a student to achieve what they thought was an unattainable goal.
There were days I've had long days an days that just went by so quickly and smooth, I learned how to file, use different computer technology and websites, scan, organize, etc. I worked in the City Hall building located Downtown of Jacksonville, Florida and everything in that building was covered through the Mayor of Jacksonville. I had nice co-workers but also had co-workers who were rude and can really be lazy and disrespect. The hardest part of the job was when it got really busy and co-workers left you to mostly do all the work, I mostly enjoyed most of my co-workers, helping the people outside the job services and the hours.
