    I have been working at City of Novi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The City of Novi is operationally one of the top municipalities in Michigan, with multiple departments receiving national accreditation. When you work here, you can tell. The level of organization is far above any past companies I've worked for and the goal of serving the public is always at the forefront of discussions as planning and processes move forward. As an employee, the benefits, special programs and free seminars, wellness engagement and retirement options are all something above and beyond what I've seen elsewhere. Full-time roles with City of Novi are career destinations for a lot of people.

    Cons

    Lot of demand, so tough to get in and move up the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the benefits and engagement programs going strong. Make sure staff are receiving raises annually based on performance, after starting at a solid base pay that matches the industry standard for a comparable municipality.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at City of Novi (Novi, MI).

    Interview

    There was a first and second round interview. Prior to the second round interview they require you to come into the Civic Center to take a personality assessment/job suitability test. In the first round I interviewed with two panel members and the second round I interviewed with 4 panel members from various departments.
