    I have been working at City of Rochester full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My coworkers are amazing. They take an interest in seeing each other succeed and back each other up to make sure the public is served accurately and quickly.

    Cons

    Very high stress at times, but everyone knows what you're going through. Most of the management has been on the floor and made their way up, so they can commiserate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make paid time off easier to use. We currently do not have enough employees to grant our time off.
