Fun workplace with good people
This is one of the better jobs that I have had. Decent pay with three day weekends every weekend. People are good for the most part and work is hard at times. Being in shape will help you with this job.

Everything non-critical is contracted out
As a sub-contractor, opportunity for advancement is minimal. You do not get all the tools to perform your job efficiently and receive pressure on things out of your control.
Pros
A paycheck
Cons
Minimal reward or incentive.

Not what it used to be
You always hear about how working for the city is a life long career and how the benefits are so great but it really was not that great.

City hires most people on contracts for years and before you become permanent they lay you off so they aren't stuck with you. They hire Sait students with big promises and never follow thru. The pay is really good and its a pretty relax environment generally but then once in a while management would drop the hammer on the team leads, who in turn drop the hammer on foreman, who in turn take it out on you for absolutely nothing.


The guys doing the hiring and firing don't know who you are and have never seen you do a day of work. so if you do good work everyday for years and have a couple of mistakes in a row management will wash their hands with you.


the facilities are all dated, a lot of old school mentality with guys just working to retire in the next few years and don't really care about the job anymore.
