TENNIS INSTRUCTOR (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – March 13, 2019
This job required for their Instructors to teach children at many locations in the Metro Richmond area. It was an easy-going environment to work in. The hardest part of the job was creating a detailed plan of how to teach large groups of children to keep a controlled and safe environment. The most enjoyable part being working with coaches that loved the game of tennis as well as inspiring young students to learn a new sport.
fun working environment, interactive, adequate breaks
non-flexible hours, driving, last minute location changes
Administrative Secretary to Deputy City Mgr. (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – March 15, 2019
It afforded me a great learning experience, skills and additional information to add to my professional toolbox. It is a great place to work. The culture of the organization is great and I recommend this employer.
Great place for classified employees who only want to do the minimum or less of their job duties and provide subpar customer service.
Senior Manager (Former Employee) – 900 East Broad Street – January 30, 2019
I can not in good consciousness recommend working for the City of Richmond VA as unclassified employee serving at the will of the politically motivated administration. The systemic issues at this municipality prohibit real innovation or healthy work environments. Instead find a well led and managed organization that is progressive and has a healthier culture.
One department paid millions of dollars to a consulting firm to improve the culture with virtually ZERO measurable results.
You will have job security if you are a classified employee.
Political climate, outdated technology, unhealthy culture.
CUSTOMER SERVICE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 14, 2019
Recognition within this company was nonexistent. There was no true mission exhibited by the company nor its leaders. High turnover rate which can be understood. Probation period once hired is one year.

Account Investigator (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – October 29, 2018
Engaging atmosphere with very knowledgeable co-workers. I learned a great deal about the Public Utility sector, and the components of gas and water usage. The workplace culture is pretty diverse for the most part we all get a long and work in a cohesive setting. The hardest part of my job can be the lack of communication when it pertains to the internal investigators vs. the field investigators. On a daily basis our job duties can cross paths, so if management makes a drastic change externally and internally we're completely out of the loop. The most important part of my job consist of my Advocacy work during my outside field events where I educate members of our community on gas awareness. Also about financial assistance to prevent disconnection of service.
There is a since of family where we are all answer by first name basis.
Our healthcare benefits could be a little more manageable.

Although the city of Richmond does have talented employees, it simply does not have enough of them, and is having a difficult time of changing their culture to a more modern, customer-focused, computer-oriented team culture.

Executive Assistant III (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 11, 2018
I've been working for the City of Richmond for 18 years in various positions. Overall, working for the City of Richmond is very rewarding. However, compensation is one of the reasons the City of Richmond has so much turnover.
