    I have been working at City of San José part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and duties. Great coworkers and supervisors. Can work from multiple locations through out the city for a nice change of scenery.

    Cons

    Limited amount if hours you can work per year. Lack of consistent hours can become an issue. You need to find hours yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more hours to be worked in a year.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at City of San José (San Jose, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview was with three ESD employees sitting on one side of a long conference table, and you sit on the other. There was a binder with 7 questions and the employees take turns asking you the questions.
