- City of Los Angeles29.Apr 2019
Suggestions for improvement
- I would definitely revise the entire testing process for getting into the City and promoting within the City.
What I like about the company
I have been working for the City of Angeles for 17 years and it has been a great experience. I've gained a ton of knowledge and have had the opportunity to work with different people and different departments. The benefits are great - all holidays off, medical and dental coverage, and others. I currently work at a very good location right across the street from the beach, free convenient parking, and great coworkers and supervisor.
What I dislike about the company
My only issue is that for the City you have to test for every position and the testing material is very difficult. I think the tests are structured too much towards weeding people out vs helping employees promote and grow. The tests often contain questions regarding the job you're applying for that you would learn once you got in the position. However, you are expected to know the information prior to getting into the position. And the written tests do not determine how well a person will work because it's all geared towards knowledge. I wish the tests were more geared towards really helping people grow in the City.
