    Pros

    Good benefits, time off is above average, hours are good, etc.

    Cons

    If you are not in the inner circle you pay rate will reflect it.

    Fix the difference in pay for the same positions. Why do a high school dropouts make more than college graduates?

    I worked at City of Albuquerque part-time

    Pros

    I loved working as a lifeguard. It is a great summer job for kids in high school, as long as you're used to sitting in the heat. Fun work environment with the other lifeguards, along with the manager.

    Cons

    None really. Minimum wage, but that's what you should expect from a job like this.
