Suggestions for improvement
- If a part time person wants to apply for a full time position , they will need to test for it by taking a civil test.
What I like about the company
The company made sure I still had a job when my position was cut when the economy tanked. I worked in several departments and learned the ins and outs of working in each one. Finally higher management chose me to help lead the creation of the city's 311 call center. Our call center is now an example that other cities want to start from and follow. I am very proud I was given this opportunity and the 311 center has created opportunities to hire from within the company for higher pay and many learning opportunities. This is a great place to work for because there are chances to move around within the company.
What I dislike about the company
I am not keen on hiring part time staff to a demanding full time position without taking the civil test as the rest of the full time staff did to be hired. I see a pattern that the part time staff do not give the job much respect and dedication as compared to the others. They also don't share the professionalism of a stress free environment for the others who are working diligently while the former part timers act out as if they were in a "playground"" type environment with being loud with personal banter, chatter and swearing, including the supervisor who also began as a part timer."
