Diesel Engine Technician (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – November 1, 2017
You could not find a more professional work environment if you tried, it is that good. I didn't mind working in the field, kept an eye on the gators and snakes, learned to laser align engine and gearboxes, was able to do a good bit if welding and fabricating which I love to do.
Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Davie, FL – July 5, 2017
Great place to work, I learned a lot from the HR Director while I was there. ( LOA, RTW, FMLA) SFWMD has a heart and cares about the community, typically they have a few charity events during the year that the employees would be involved in to raise money.
Accounts Payable Technician (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – June 7, 2017
Great company to work for. Would work for them again. Lost job due to cutbacks . I worked in the Accounts Payable Department. I checked all vendor invoices that were processed for accuracy. I also processed check requests and maintained all the files.
Wide range of job assignments directed over a very large infastructure.
Crane/Dragline Operator (Former Employee) – Saint Cloud, FL – November 26, 2016
On a day to day basis there would be multiple projects or maintenance operations in progress. I found changes in assignments were a common occurrence due to prioritization given to the most urgent need. Over the 35 years I worked there there was always a backlog of things that could be done and even should be done. Often our work had a ever present risk of damage to equipment, vehicles and District assets. A very careful and methodical approach to any given task was important. A tightening budget had a way of making the work process tense at times.
Engineer (Current Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – September 24, 2016
Used to be a great place to work. Now management looks for ways to criticize and diminish employees and cut tools used to do our jobs. Coworkers are great but everyone is demoralized. Looking for other opportunities. No chance for advancement and no pay increases in years. Sad what has been done to a once world class organization as so much talent and experience has been driven away.
