low pay, heavily over worked

Very low pay and way to much overtime due to lack of employees. Management is good but they are unable to make the changes they need to due to poor city council decisions.
Pros
Supposed to be 4-10's with three day weekend.
Cons
always work over time during week and on the weekends.

Unbelievable employee turnover rate.
Water Distribution Operator (Former Employee) –  Gilbert, AZDecember 7, 2017
You will never receive a cost-of-living adjustment. You will never top out in your salary range regardless of what they tell you. Be lucky if you get at least a three quarter of a percent raise as most of us did this year. What a slap in the face. I can understand why the turnover rate of employees is absolutely unbelievable in volume. Most employees that leave go to other neighboring municipalities for better pay. Gilbert is the lowest paying municipality in the valley,, fact
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Low pay, no cost of living adjustments, slap in the face raises.

Heavy Equipment Operator
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Town of Gilbert, AZNovember 7, 2017
Bad management, bad routes, bad trucks, bad mechanics. This is for heavy Equipment Operator in the solid waste division. Can’t speak for any other departments but no one else seemed miserable and dreaded coming to work. New management does nothing, all talk no action. 4 day work with with Wednesday off. Your first year you will have a lot of training on Wednesday’s though. It’s a job, but not a good one.
Pros
No weekends
Cons
No lunch, bad truck, disrespectful management, no raises

Heavy equipment operator
Former heavy equipment operator (Former Employee) –  Gilbert, AZJune 25, 2017
Heavy equipment operator is driving a trash truck. Getting up and down in and out of the truck. Hard work for little pay. Management is only worried about how good you'll make them look. Rules change everyday. Worked there for 3 years and never got a raise. Only the people up town and management gets raises. It's a town not a city for they have no structure. Do your self a favor and do not apply here.
Pros
Good coworkers
Cons
Poor management, non filtered water. Poor equipment. Hazardous job. Poor pay

Always try as much as possible to move up to management.
I like a fun calm work place culture
The hardest part of the job is problems in the workplace
The most enjoyable part of the job, is achieving the goals we set in the work place.

Lean culture
Manager (Former Employee) –  Gilbert, AZJune 9, 2017
Job training is virtually nonexistent in many departments. High turnover created by lean culture, lack of employee investment, salary increases unfairly distributed, and increases in costs of benefits. Makes more sense to work for a municipality who will pay you more, has adequate staff to complete work, and invests in you as an employee.
Cons
Limited advancement
