    I have been working at City of Santa Monica California full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Above average salaries, great benefits, almost no overtime, progressive city, great lunch option within walking distance, relatively stable.

    Cons

    After awhile everybody gets set in their ways and people work there with the hope of retiring. I always found that weird. Eventually people get complacent, lazy and aren't challenged because after you master your job there isn't much left. Also, the culture is to blame each other whenever something goes wrong.

    Interview Details

    2 part interview test, and behavioral. Must have had a typing test from an official test taking place which was not specified in application so that was quite frustrating. Applied for the position several times even though I was overly qualified, obvious nepotism as this is a low skills job they give it to the people they know since it pays substantially well to other part time jobs.
