1. So many amazingly talented people 2. 9/80 schedule allows for every other Friday off 3. Very caring & very understanding of issues that arise in personal life. You are never guilt tripped for taking time off or missing a day of work. 4. Dozens and dozens of employee benefits besides the standard benefits package.
1. While a majority of the employees are incredibly friendly, at times you feel like a ghost when walking outside of your department. Even if I don't know someones name or title, I still smile/say hello and try to make small talk. Some employee's can't be bothered. 2. While working a 9/80 schedule has it's benefits, having to be at work by 7:30am is difficult when you consider having to take children to daycare/school and traffic. There is zero flexibility or leniency in hours. 3. Changes are made to departments/work flow process' by employees who have zero experience doing the jobs of those they are making changes too.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at San Diego County Water Authority in August 2015.
I was scheduled for an Appraisal Interview first. I had no idea what an Appraisal interview was. When I got there I interviewed with four people and only one of them worked in the HR Dept at SDWA. They asked 9 structured questions about specific job experience. From what I understand, the answers are weighted and the highest scoring candidates will be asked to come back for a final interview with the HR Manager and Director. I first applied one month ago, and I am supposed to hear about whether or not I qualified for the next interview by next week. I think that is pretty fast for a government job.
