    I worked at City of College Station Texas part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with your college course schedule. Generally very friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Some of the people can be very immature and juvenile making the job difficult.
    Don't give pay increases. Worked here for 3 years and remained at the same pay the whole time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to eliminate the drama between departments.

    Pay employees a competitive salary to help workforce reduction.

    I have been working at City of College Station Texas part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a part time Kids Klub Counselor I got paid to play with kids. It was a blast! The kids were great, my staff were wonderful, and if I could still make it work I'd still be there.

    Cons

    The work schedule wasn't flexible at all, so I had to quit when my school schedule interfered with work. And the upper management was hard to deal with and not willing to work with employees the majority of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding of your employees schedules, especially since the majority of them are students.

    Pros

    -People are great
    -Lots of opportunity
    -Varied work environment
    -Good Leadership

    Overall, I had a great time working for the city and will look back on it as a positive experience. You have the opportunity to make important network connections, work outside and schedule the hours that you want to work. For a college job, you can't ask for much more.

    Cons

    -Occasional city government bureaucracy issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your shining stars, get rid of the underachievers
