    I worked at East Bay Regional Park District full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits compared to comparable work in the bay area. Mostly smart and fun coworkers. Pretty low-drama management and organization overall.

    Cons

    Hard initially to get a full time job- may have to temp in various positions to get in the system.

    Advice to Management

    I understand why it works for the agency to have so many people shuffling between temp positions before getting hired permanent/full time, but I think it's worth trying to fix. It IS discriminatory against those who don't have backgrounds that give them the freedom to be underutilised/underpaid/unbenefitted for a year or more. This works okay for some but may be prohibitive depending on your background- so it doesn't necessarily get the best workers, as much as those who can afford to go without full-time, benefited work for a while.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at East Bay Regional Park District (Oakland, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had to take a VERY basic math test. I was then called in for an interview with the manager and was hired right there. Then went to do finger printing and signed paperwork from HR.

    Interview Questions

    • The manager just told me about the job and asked if I was willing and able to do it.   Answer Question
