    I have been working at City of Santa Monica California full-time (More than 5 years)


    We work on interesting and challenging projects, with great compensation. Almost all of our employees are great to work with and very professional.


    It's almost impossible to get work done with administrative hurdles. We need to hire experts to design specific project, but the process takes months, going to council alone takes 6 weeks, and the reports are so standard, there's no way the full message gets from staff to council.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the procedures and spend more time trying to understand the projects. Get to know and place faith in your staff, or train them so you can. The City constantly pays consultants to tell council what staff already knows.

    Staff Assistant II Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer


    2 part interview test, and behavioral. Must have had a typing test from an official test taking place which was not specified in application so that was quite frustrating. Applied for the position several times even though I was overly qualified, obvious nepotism as this is a low skills job they give it to the people they know since it pays substantially well to other part time jobs.
