What’s it like to work for the city? Here’s a brief overview:

Hours of Work

The normal workweek is 40 hours, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.; however, most positions have alternate schedule options such as four 10-hour days, 9/80 schedule, and flexible start and end times. All positions have weekends off except Police Officers and some Maintenance Workers (during peak weather season). Police Officers work a 3 on/3 off schedule: two-12 hour shifts, followed by one 10-hour shift; followed by three days off.

Probation/Orientation Period

Regular employment status is subject to the successful completion of a twelve-month probation/orientation period*. During the probation/orientation period, your ability to fulfill the standards and expectations for the department and the City will be closely evaluated.

*Collective bargaining agreements may have different terms.
