    I worked at City of Port Orange as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were very friendly, helpful, and supportive of new interns. Some good training during less busy times.

    Cons

    Work that did not always relate to the job, while there was some training for certain tasks others were left to ones own devices. As an intern when it came to working on certain projects, there was a lot of information that I was kept out of the loop on, while I understand why this was, it did make understanding and learning how to approach a problem and situation as not much of a learning experience.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, library is right across the street, beautiful area for scenery

    Cons

    Always understaffed, lowest paid city employees of Volusia county, management will hang their team out to dry, chain of command does not work

    Advice to Management

    There are managers that need to go to management training to gain leadership skills. Also, the chain in command does not work most of the time.
