Must be extremely flexible & willing to accept a rotating wheel & bid on assignment every 6 months.
There are plenty of different hours, days off & teams to choose from, the only exception is that bidding is based on seniority.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make City of San Jose a better place to work?
Due to the cities current overall moral I would make many changes with management personnel by getting rid of middle management & all senior staff management at city hall.
Obviously by the percentage of disgruntled & unhappy employees in all departments there is a major problem with senior staff management bynot addressing internal problems within a department makes for lack of interest & decreased lack of effort & pride by employees.
Also sit down privately amongst employees to find out if there is any on going internal complaints that have not been addressed or resolved.
Also asked all employees in each department if they have all the tools needed on a daily basis for an employee to perform their job. Lastly ask them for any ideas they might have or in the future have to make our job as a city employee a better way to perform our jobs more efficiently & effectively deliver the services we provide to the residence, merchants, stakeholders & visitors of the city of San Jose in the utmost professionalism that are expected of us each and everyday.
