Mission: Working for a safe, affordable, vibrant, innovative and connected city.
I worked at City of Seattle full-time (More than 3 years)
SCAO is a great place to work
Work in silos. White and polite. Isolating. Minimal institutional knowledge shared
Advice to Management
Actually apply RSJI initiative to all work of SCAO. Minimal diversity.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at City of Seattle.
It was a poorly organized process; told I had no interview and then that I did months later; my ethnic name was messed up many times; one interviewer was oddly cold that may just have been the way interview was set up, but there was little back and forth; no eye contact. This is the 2nd process that seemed pre-decided based on how much energy the team was giving it. Perhaps they were just going through the motions until they finalized the person they wanted all along.
We have a tradition here at the City of Seattle which has reached new heights. Fridays are Blue Friday to honor the Seattle Seahawks. Most business groups are encouraged to wear our team colors proudly, so you'll see folks in jerseys, t-shirts, or even sporting blue hair. It's sure to lift spirits to see everyone so excited for the Hawks.
