Most of the people are really great! Close to home, shopping, restaurants and other businesses. Lots of employee potlucks and recognitions for birthdays. Employees have the opportunity to recognize each other. It is a job and they offer benefits with paid holidays off.
Low pay for long hours with no compensation or appreciation for all the hours put in. Life-work balance is not supported even though they say they have balance both in their interviews and on their website. It would be nice to be able to be compensated with a day or two off during a month without having to take sick or vacation time--especially if the average work week for an employee is 45 to 50 or more hours a WEEK. Cost of benefits went up which lowered take home pay and no salary increase all though a 2% increase had been discussed and decided against. Incompetent, unqualified and low skilled employees are promoted to management positions.
Advice to Management
Promoting employees who are not qualified for the position or because they dont cut it in another area is stupid and detrimental to moral. You will get more work, loyalty and happier employees if you appreciate them more--if not with a salary increase, with more appreciation and compensation in some way for all the extra hours.
I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at City of Centennial (Centennial, CO) in April 2016.
When I went through the interview process for the City of Centennial, I was surprised with how communicative the staff was about the process. I was kept informed at every step of the process. It was also extremely interesting to me that there were a number of panel members for my interview that were not directly tied to my line of work because of the collaboration that the staff members participate in on a daily basis.
The City of Centennial has an opening for a City Manager, who will serve as the Chief Executive Officer and will be responsible to the Mayor and City Council for the leadership and administration of all operations of the City, except the City Attorney’s Office. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ5Pb
