Jacksonville (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – June 13, 2018
The City of Jacksonville provides a Diverse Working Environment with advancement opportunities, Good Benefits, Everyday was different when it comes to servicing the public, which I enjoyed. Some days was more challenging that others because clients needs and situations were all different.
Variety of Career Opportunties
Social Work is very rewarding but it can be stressful too
Recreational Worker (Former Employee) – Dupree Park – May 8, 2018
While working for the City of Jacksonville, I worked with a lot of friendly, mature women. They welcomed me, taught me, and even fed me from time to time. The management was okay at the time, but it could have been a lot worse. The hardest part of my job was grilling hamburgers and chicken breast for customers. The job was fairly easy and relaxing, but the temperature was high so I would become hot. Overall, the City of Jacksonville is a lovely environment with productive workers and smiling guests.
Wastewater Plant Maintenance Worker (Current Employee) – North Carolina – July 26, 2017
Depending on which department your in, this can be a great job, or absolutely terrible. People have a tendency of stabbing each other in the back or leaving one person to carry the weight of the entire team. The leadership is also very terrible. The head of the city as well as the supervisors of departments care more about themselves and their image over the well being of their employees. This often leads to stress and unnecessary unemployment.
Paid time off, health and dental benefits
On call, poor leadership, bad worker image, high turnover rate
Public Services Coordinator (Former Employee) – City Hall – July 20, 2017
The staff with the City of Jacksonville are excellent and are of high moral integrity. Government jobs, however, are typically lower-paying and have less advancement opportunities. However, with that said, this was one of the best jobs available in an area that does not have a lot of opportunity.

Seasonal Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Atlantic Beach, FL 32233 – April 7, 2016
A typical workday would include learning more on first aid, reviewing first responder skills, and utilizing CPR certifications. Gained knowledge on working with diverse populations and handling stressful and chaotic situations in a professional manner. Management and co-workers made the job have the energetic atmosphere. The hardest part of the job would be a 10 hour day in the heat. The most enjoyable part of the day was the satisfaction in helping others.
l enjoyed giving a smile to each and every customer. l was able to give information & be a Notary Public. Each day working there was never a dull moment. l was given many tasks & was a trusted employee. My coworkers were like family & we all got along well. l will miss my coworkers but the experience there was worth it all.
There is not one bad thing I can say about the City of Jacksonville Police Department. The Department is more like a family. When a person was hurting we all hurt. When a person did outstanding, we all did outstanding. We all came together to make sure the citizens of Jacksonville were safe and could rely on the Jacksonville Police Department.
