    I have been working at City of Henderson, Neveda part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great job for the first year that I worked there. I had a lot of friends at work and truly enjoyed coming into work everyday. Management treated us well and cared about us.

    Cons

    Recently management has had some changes and they truly try to take advantage of everyone working there. They nickle and dime their employees to death, have the lowest wages for lifeguards in Las Vegas, and have complete disregard for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    At least attempt to raise wages because they are becoming more and more ridiculous as other lifeguard positions become available and conditions get worse and worse at the city.

    Pros

    The City of Henderson was Flexible with scheduling and availability. I always felt prepared to respond to emergencies if anything were to happen. Training was good if a little excessive.

    Cons

    Management was terrible. They got raises nearly every year while their subordinates had no increase in wages. Management rarely rewarded employees for hard work or taking imitative. In turn they constantly belittled and threatened employees for small infractions. Many times the entire staff would be disciplined for one persons infractions.

    Advice to Management

    You employ almost entirely High School students. Many of which work because their parents make them not because they want to. Recognize this! Reward them for hard work and make a positive work environment.

    I have been working at City of Henderson, Neveda full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Supportive co-workers.
    -Good benefits including a four day work week.
    -Atmosphere slowly improving.
    -Probably the best municipal government to work for in the Las Vegas valley.

    Cons

    -Managers and some supervisors well protected and disconnected from front line employees.
    -Communication between upper management and employees is poor and discouraged.
    -Cronyism used for promotions and assignments. Most employees have little input.
    -Large differences in morale, worker skills, and training opportunities between different departments.
    -Little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    -Focus on what benefits residents instead of spending time and money getting more certifications.
    -Hold managers and supervisors to the same standards as other employees.
    -Remove managers who are holding back employees morale and innovation. Employee reviews for supervisors and managers would show where your employees see problems.
    -Positive changes in recent months need to be followed through. Surveying employees nice but not helpful if no changes.

    Excellent benefits, salary for the most part, people are easy to work around

    Some fiefdoms exist. Salary structure has changed since the great recession.

    Probably a little too much micro-management in the form of various analysts.

    Pros

    you earn A LOT working here. we practice lifeguarding skills and swimming drills weekly. Loved all the people I worked with in my time here also. This is good experience if you ever want to work with kids in the future or be a lifeguard in a different place.

    Cons

    Really hot over summer. Scheduling is not always the best. They give you good hours but sometimes you wonder if its worth it.

    Pros

    You're helping the community in City of Henderson. It is like community service but you're paid for it so that's good.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets hectic. Bosses can be a pain but fairly so for the most part. Communication could be better amongst staff. Pay should be higher for what we do sometimes.
