I worked at City of Houston full-time (More than a year)
Work was very fulfilling, knowing your daily duties help many in Houston. In my role I got to interact with many people in my department and the work was always varied Day to day. Flex time is great and most supervisors were willing to work w you on your schedule! Benefits ok.
Many levels of bureaucracy to go through to get things done or changed so things can take a long time to get done.
Advice to Management
Keep flex schedule and let your younger staff work to problem solve as much as possible!
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at City of Houston (Houston, TX).
Submitted the application online through the official websites. Got the digital interview couple days later via email. The interview contained four questions. Basically, you will answer each question facing your computer equipped with camera and microphone. Be sure you are using the appropriate web browser.
