    I have been working at San Diego County Water Authority

    Pros

    1. So many amazingly talented people
    2. 9/80 schedule allows for every other Friday off
    3. Very caring & very understanding of issues that arise in personal life. You are never guilt tripped for taking time off or missing a day of work.
    4. Dozens and dozens of employee benefits besides the standard benefits package.

    Cons

    1. While a majority of the employees are incredibly friendly, at times you feel like a ghost when walking outside of your department. Even if I don't know someones name or title, I still smile/say hello and try to make small talk. Some employee's can't be bothered.
    2. While working a 9/80 schedule has it's benefits, having to be at work by 7:30am is difficult when you consider having to take children to daycare/school and traffic. There is zero flexibility or leniency in hours.
    3. Changes are made to departments/work flow process' by employees who have zero experience doing the jobs of those they are making changes too.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at San Diego County Water Authority.

    Interview Details

    I did not realize that it was an appraisal interview until it got under way. When interview was scheduled, the scheduler said she was calling to schedule me for an interview. I took that to mean a job interview, which was how I prepared for it. Had I known it was an appraisal interview, I would have prepared differently. It would have made a difference in the types of questions I studied beforehand.

When you are a big urban area located between the salty sea and a blazing hot desert, and with scant local water resources, making sure that all your 3.1 million citizens have access to safe, reliable drinking water is no easy task. But that is the job of the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA), which is in charge of supplying about 95% of San Diego County's potable water supply (80% of which comes directly and indirectly from the Colorado River). The authority provides water to its 24 member agencies (primarily cities and municipal districts), which in turn... More
