Suggestions for improvement
- with so many employees that enjoy working call duty,it should be a sign up sheet a year in advance so we can have happy employees not upset ones.If there are to be major changes that affect us we should have an open discussion with the director on site to listen to our concerns,not just have them dropped on us out of the blue.we should poll our employees who has been with the org. over 5 years and get feedback from them on a yearly basis.The job requirements need to be re-evaluated as to not have the standards so high that nobody will apply for them because if you do and you fail to obtain what you need in 6 months you are terminated..instead of being demoted to where you once were.employees are afraid to apply for higher positions for a fear losing their jobs..it is a scare tactic by the current adminstration to stop minorities from applying for jobs that pay more.
What I like about the company
being able to communicate throughout the division is something i like.Being able to meet people in the public is another thing i enjoy.i get to observe people from many different cultures.I have always loved the way human resources interact with non management employees.they listen and are fair when it come to employee affairs.We have an outstanding communications system.Our director gets involved with his deparment on a regular basis.Not just meetings but he listens to any problems we may have.the same for our city manager who gets involved with general employees.
