    Current Employee - Mail Clerk/Machine Operator in Antioch, CA

    I have been working at City of Antioch full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great job with tons of equipment to work with to do a professional job.

    Cons

    Too much waste of money in the City (like most government jobs).

  2.  

    Unappreciated by Supervisors and Management, but must love the kids!

    I have been working at City of Antioch

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for the City of Antioch are the clients you get to interact with. I work in the Recreation Department, so for me it is the children I get to see on a daily basis that make the job worth while.

    Cons

    -Low pay.
    -Incompetent supervisors.
    -Spending money out of your own pocket to run programs and such.
    -Expectation to stay at work after you're off the clock (so illegal!)
    - Budget woes making job stability almost non-existent.
    -Ask to be late to work 2 weeks in advance (as I did), get it approved, and then get scolded for it after the fact (uhm, ok?)
    -You will be written up for supervisors mistakes!
    -Inconsistency in workplace policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your on-site supervisors properly, put people in place who have the potential to grow as leaders, not those who use their position as a power tripping tool. Make sure that your supervisors are performing work within the boundaries of the law (because right now, they are not!), and acknowledge your "subordinates" when you come to the work sites. There is nothing worse than having upper management walk right past you like you don't exist! Provide better uniforms so that clients will respect you more - right now, some of the Rec staff look like clowns.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Most of the employees are terrific, hard working people.

    Cons

    It's a government agency that is under-staffed and under-funded, so be prepared to work hard and always, always do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best of luck in the future.
