Adoption/ Animal Care Supervisor (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 6, 2018
General City Benefits are good but work environmant at this specific location was very stressful. A lot of changes have been made in upper management since I left so I do not know how things currently function.
Security Guard (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 13, 2018
Monitor CCTV for 30 library branches and respond effectively. Secure Central location branch. Assist personnel with overnight matters and work with alarm monitoring company. I've learned how to read various behaviors. I feel that management should consider the opinions of their subordinates a little more. Workplace is friendly most of the time. The hardest part of the job is keeping busy to stay awake. The benefit package and competitive pay is the best part of the job to me.
SAN ANTONIIO (Current Employee) – SAN ANTONIIO – July 9, 2018
The City will over work you and under pay you. They do offer Comp-time but you will never have the ability use it. Most of the times management will most likely deny it. Also it dose not matter how hard you work,you will never have the opportunity for advancement. Unfortunately management does not care for their employees and you can get fired for any little reason.
LVN - Metro Health/WIC (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 5, 2018
A typical day at work would be to unlock the doors for business, hear children cry starting at 7:45am all the way to 7:45pm. Counsel parents or pregnant women on nutrition. I learned about team work. Management had to follow rules and regulations or the city would step in and get things in order. The city was not to friendly about culture unless it has to do with Fiesta. The hardest part of the job was to keep quiet about rude managers. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping individuals that wanted help.
Free lunch at meetings
only 1 supervisor was mean to her employees, although she would follow you and keep poking your shoulder, other supervisor
great place to work at, i recoomed people to apply there.
SURVEYOR (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 29, 2018
I love working for the city. The city offers great benefits. They more than match your 401 plan contributions, good medical insurance, and time off for personal or sick leave, also school reimbursement.
I enjoy the job I do. I get along with my co-workers. I am a surveyor and when we start a new job first we start finding property corners, than we mark our stations, usually every 50’. We set two points with GPS, with our two control points than we ca run an elevation loop, anchor the job. After all this we are ready to start the survey. In the City, we use the Topcon total station, Sokkia robotic, and GPS. We also use a tablet and a data collector. I had worked 6 years as a surveyor in Laredo, TX but I have learn a lot here in the city.
I enjoy the city and its friendly atmosphere. I recommend the city to anyone. It is a great place to work.
City Staff Trainer (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 14, 2018
Overall I have no complaints about the city of San Antonio. Work/life balance is okay, pay could be better, but if you are looking to earn big bucks don't go into city government. Good retirement benefits. Health care costs are a little expensive
