I worked at city of redwood city full-time (More than a year)
Flexible schedule. Great vacation package. Challenging work. Great people. Good mission. Great council. Great department head team. Good managers. Great atmosphere.
High contribution to PERS. Some former leaders were really weak and had to manage around them, but that has changed. I believe the leadership team is strong now.
Advice to Management
Reduce PERS contribution. Try to be more planful of growth and changes.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at city of redwood city (Redwood City, CA).
A very short phone call to set up an onsite interview. It took about 30-40 minutes and the person interviewing next is outside for you to see.
The questions were on point but lacking in making you feel they comprehended your resume at times.
Overall, a so-so hourly rate for a so-so position.
