    Pros

    Great first job
    Lots of training and patience from staff
    Teach swim lessons to kids, which is really fun

    Cons

    Hard to get rid of a negative reputation. Lots of grudges held for a while by management.

    Advice to Management

    Try to talk to employees more about working with other employees, and what they contribute to the team.

    I have been working at Roseville, CA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fairly stable because it's government

    Cons

    Major politics and age discrimination. PERS benefits ain't what they used to be.... and they won't hire you if you're over 50.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people on their merits. Succession planning is great but you're losing out on some great employees because you're too prejudiced against older workers.

    I have been working at Roseville, CA full-time

    Pros

    Comfortable and friendly atmosphere, city services you can be proud of, forward thinking use of technology, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Projects tend to move a little slow, information and communication is somewhat siloed, lack of established structure and processes, many employees approaching retirement and taking institutional knowledge with them.

    Advice to Management

    Establish better on-boarding, training, and succession planning.

    I worked at Roseville, CA part-time

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere that allows young people to move up and learn management skills. I worked there for 9 years and enjoyed almost every person I came across.

    Cons

    The commitment needed, especially during the summer, might be a little overkill. When you get into upper management you may have to answer texts and phone calls from staff a lot of the time.

    I have been working at Roseville, CA part-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with, usually.
    Flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Many sites would rather hire more employees to cover all the shifts instead of giving current employees the option to work more hours which means each employee gets fewer hours overall.
    There is very little chance that a 1000 hour employee will be able to move up to a 1500 hour position.
    Some sites are allowed to promote internally when they have an available full time position while other sites are not allowed this privilege which means they have to open a recruitment.
    Sometimes the upper management in the department will pull away an existing full time employee to fill another open full time position in order to save money.
    Being a long time employee doesn't mean anything if you are part time because you are not gaining any benefits and your employment can be put on hold or even terminated depending on the department's budget.
    The budget problems have existed in this department for years but this year is the worst for the whole city and it is not going to get better any time soon.

    Advice to Management

    If you want people to stay, give them an incentive to stay. Treating part time employees like expendable resources and not giving them opportunities to advance to full time status is a reason why there are so many people in the recreation department who are just looking for a paycheck and a better opportunity somewhere else. Why should they invest their time in an employer who won't do the same for them?

    I worked at Roseville, CA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice location, but nothing else to add.

    Cons

    Nepotism and favoritism are rampant in the whole city. Winks and good ol' boy handshakes guarantee you a job - that you don't meet the definition for.

    Advice to Management

    Get new blood.
