I have been working at Metropolitan Utilities District full-time (More than a year)
Pay, benefits, retirement/pension. Moved up quickly because I worked hard and did my job. Really enjoy what I do and will be here until I retire.
Technology challenged but getting better. Many who work here are long term employees and do the bare minimum because they can. The Union protects them and they know it and take full advantage of it. Lot's of seniority and tenure chest puffing here, my advice would be to just get in, do your job and keep your head down and you will be recognized as it is not very hard to outwork the old timers who are coasting by waiting to retire. Also, don't miss but a day or two your first year or they will let you go before you 1 year probation is up.
Advice to Management
Keep working on improving technology
