streets maintenance worker (Former Employee) says"typical day was always under staffed, they don't pay their workers what they should, and the upper management run their workers into the ground, theres always some kind of shady deal going on with this company. although the benefits and retirement are the most positive things there"
Laborer/Operator/Driver CDL A/ tanker endorsement (Current Employee) says"Very cut throat, biased, alot of unfairness throughout the entire city.

Site Lead (Former Employee) says"Don’t work here it suck the kids are great most times but management suck. the parents are rude. and I won’t ever go back not matter what............."
Art Instructor (Current Employee) says"The management was not invested in the community that they served. They weren't knowledgeable or interested in communicating with the local community that we served. Instead they were interested in continuing with programming that was developed 20 years ago or programs of their own interests. Cons: No benefits, no room for growth"
Safe Key Assistant Lead (Former Employee) says"Sign student in/out of program Cons: No vacation time, no sick time, designated compensation"
Site Assistant (Former Employee) says"I worked here for a year and in that time I learned that the head of Safekey plays favorites with her employees. She sweeps things under the rug when the site leaders slip up, but lets go of hard working, caring site assistants who actually care about the kids they work with. There are a lot of older people on staff who are unattentive to the kids, and they act jealous of new employees who have better connections with the kids. Some of them even sleep on the job, and the leaders cover for them. Safekey has potential to be great, but the staff needs a total makeover. Cons: Unfair treatment by higher ups"
IT (Current Employee) says"The most hierarchical IT organizational structure I've ever worked for. Management runs the department similar to a secret society only telling you what they want you to hear. I agree with the other IT poster on here that if you're good at schmoozing and are a good yes woman they will move you to a position of your choice. Culture is non existent because for a lot of people it's just a pay check and/or don't respect the management team. Cons: average health care"
Animal Control Officer (Former Employee) says"I would start by cleaning the dog/cat kennels. Then i would feed all housed animals. Cons: management staff was very bad"
Computer Technician (Current Employee) says"The above ratings say it all. The city of Las Vegas is operated on a nepatism type schema. It is who you know not what you know to work here. You can be any position you want if you know the right people. Legacy from father/mother to siblings."
Occupancy Specialist II (Former Employee) says"Learning environment was good. The caseloads were heavy and rules varied from dept to dept. Cons: management rules and regulations vary by division"
Safekey Site Assistant (Former Employee) says"I would arrive 15 minutes early to set up the computer and set out the sign in sheet for the Lead and parents to sign in. Mornings the kids are sleepy so we color and play or teach Tic Tac Toe. We Escort the Kinder's to their play yard. Put everything away till afternoon, after school. I always showed up 15 early to set the food out, turn the computer on with the PM sign out sheet. Served the meals, cleaned up, they read or did homework and we help with that. Afterwards we played games or went out to the playground depending on the weather. Checked ID's when picking up a child. When the last one leaves we put everything away for the next day, turn out the lights and make sure the doors are locked. Cons: No Breaks"
Lifeguard (Former Employee) says"Fun summer job, They are pretty good with requesting off as long as it doesn't interfere with inservice. Not much room to grow in this company except for once in a blue moon. Very high turn around rate as Ive seen plenty of new faces. I would find another job during the off season because you will not be making more than $500 every month. Cons: long hours in the sun, bad pay during off season, no benefits"
Acting Senior Planner (Former Employee) says"I enjoyed being in charge of a Planning Commission team and the demands that it put on me to be at my best all the time. I worked on a team with three others to accomplish our task. Keep in mind, I worked there during the building boom, so a typical Planning Commission agenda would have anywhere from 70 to 120 items on it. The variety of projects that I was able to review was phenomenal and memorable. Working on reviews of subdivisions to arenas to casinos! It was a job that I was proud to have had, but it did eventually get to you and burn you out! By the end of my time there, they had gotten very nit-picky about everything, to the point where we had to sign in and out when we went to the bathroom! Cons: supervisors were micromanagers, office environment was getting to be nit-picky, numerous night meetings."
Safekey Assistant (Former Employee) says"Worked for 4 years. Enjoyed the first year but the pay did not add up to the work you are putting in. Management also could be better. It is a secure job though. Recommended for college students who enjoy the company of children"
Lifeguard (Current Employee) says"I hated working here, end of story. I got hired 4 hours a week, working only one day. I have to take the bus to work and they would call me in half an hour before a shift to ask me to cover someone."
Pool Manager (Former Employee) says"As the pool manager, I was able to schedule employees and other trainings within the facility."
Safe key Lead Teacher (Former Employee) says"I received payments for school programs keep thing organized updated and safe. what I learned is patient when teacher kids. the hardest part was parents don't pick up their kids on time. The kids so cute what a joy to make them help get through a tough day leaving with smile Cons: when parents come to get there kids angry because they tough day"
Safekey Site Assistant (Former Employee) says"A typical day at this place consists of checking the students in, snack time, homework time, play time, and then the students go home. The person who makes the decisions on who gets hired here has friends within the company and lets them off the hook when they fail terribly at their job, like losing a special needs child on the clock, for instance. Instead of that site leader being fired, they were moved to another school. They let go of good hardworking employees who actually care about the students we're supposed to take care of, and instead let people who sleep on the job and are just there to collect a check skate through. I would never work here again but it's a good job to gain some experience Cons: Playing favorites"
Site Assistant (Former Employee) says"Job turnover is crazy here. The only job requirement is to be able to pass a drug test. Site leaders are hard to get ahold off. Good luck getting any days off."
las vegas (Former Employee) says"hard to advance, if you keep to yourself your better off, if you dont know anyone you wont get hired it political. its sometimes an ok place to work depends on whuch part"
