Current Employee - Intern in Gainesville, FL

I have been working at City of Gainesville, FL

Pros

Willing to wok with your school schedule. Great learning expeirence for Traffic Engineer. You Actual get to be an engineer and get treated like one, not like an intern.

Cons

no benefits for interns. Additionally no holiday pay. The pay could be a little more but it is the government.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider offering the interns some type of benefits package, and encourage more self growth for the interns. Great place to learn and work.

    Former Employee - Head Lifguard in Gainesville, FL

    I worked at City of Gainesville, FL

    Pros

    good, flexible hours, lots of time off, all of the people that work around you are fun and excited to be there

    Cons

    Management is not always respectful of their individual employees, hard work usually goes un noticed in the work place. Less than average facilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention and give more benefits to those who work hard and put in the time. People in the organization tend to "play favorites" as opposed to applauding those that actually do their work

    It's alright to be friends with the employees you manage, but at times you must look from a business perspective and make the right decisions based on merit not on subjective likes or dislikes.
