      I have been working at Town of Gilbert, Arizona full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      4 day work week, great co-workers

      Cons

      Horrible pay wage, if you enjoy being under paid and under appreciated this place is for you! The town will tell you you have opportunities to get raises and give you pennies when they actually do decide to give you anything. The pay starts now at 15 dollars an hour for an employee with a class A CDL! What a joke! All the town council cares about is its bottom line. Don't believe the smoke and mirror BS that they give...

      I have been working at Town of Gilbert, Arizona full-time

      Pros

      4 day work week Easy work Good co-workers Pay higher than some other municipalities

      Cons

      Slow processes with too many unnecessary steps Poor use of technology Claim to be Lean but not utilizing resources effectively so employees just end up being overworked and unhappy No focus on employee morale Really bad middle managers in many departments. Poor leadership and lack of opportunity for improvement due to stifling managers.

      Advice to Management

      Middle managers: please take some leadership courses and apply the concepts. Upper management: Coach middle managers to be better leaders or show them the door.

            I worked at Town of Gilbert, Arizona part-time for more than a year

            Pros

            Lots of materials to create fun projects with the kids. Pay is great as a side job for teachers or stay at home moms who only want to work a few hours a week.

            Cons

            Had to come up with projects completely on my own which can sometimes be time consuming for the 2-3 hours of pay.

            Advice to Management

            Work on schedule to build in more classes

            Pros

            Positive culture, trying to redefine the way the town performs, set goals to "Best of Class in all lines of service" made it easy to align work to

            As a municipality there are a lot of hoops to jump through to get stuff done, town council is very polarizing versus community need
