    Pros

    There is a good opportunity to have work-life balance, and many opportunities to be engaged in the community, especially through volunteering. The salary is competitive, and there are health, pension, 401k and 457 benefits. Tuition reimbursement is also nice.

    Cons

    The industry is changing, and the strategy can be unclear and appear conflicting. It can be difficult to work across silos, and to have clear decision authority and processes to follow.

    Advice to Management

    Set clearer expectations about management responsibilities, and make it clear who has what input to decisions, and who has final decision authority. Hold some sessions to develop a well-defined strategy that is internally coherent, and build processes to have it drive other planning efforts.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Sacramento Municipal (Sacramento, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    There is an unnecessarily long selection process that takes place when they are hiring Customer Service Representatives. After taking a written test, being interviewed on the phone and going to their offices to be personally met, I have to say it was a decent experience in terms of the way they organized. Unfortunately I got a very bad impression from them since the person in charge of the appointment messed up the time we were supposed to meet at, which ended up with me being late to my interview. No apologies, instead she refused to accept what happened. I recommend you are very careful, confirm the time of your interview if you get to that point and make sure you have an email that proves you did.
