    Good ol' boy

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits, paid holidays, no accountability. Easy money

    Consno accountability, rotating scheduled, good ol' boy system. No raises in over 4 years, low pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRetire early, all older people have seniority even if they are new hires. Unjust work conditions, stop siding with people who refuse to work over people who are forced to do their seniors work. Many times that a older guy complains about back pains or not being able to do the job because they are too old and make the younger employees carry the burden. If you cant do the job, you should not be working.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not for persons looking to advance in their career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood retirement package (7%), some good people and that's about it...

    ConsRetirement package, benefits, people, facilities, culture, management, human resources. Work is easy, but you won't learn much. There is no room for new ideas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about your employees. No wonder nobody wants to work in the public sector.

    If you want happiness don't be a juvenile supervision officer with dallas county

    Lead Juvenile Supervision Officer (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat retirement, medical and other benefits. Feeling of fulfillment helping children.

    ConsThey will make you work manditory overtime but you wont get paid monetarily. They will give you comp time. Which is off time. But half the time you will not choose what days you use your comp time. They have bully administration who truly do not care how you are spoken to nor how you are treated by your superiors. The buddy system is highly valued over your performance. Even if you have stellar performance, the person buddy buddy with management will be promoted. When confronted with these issues, management target you and ruin your name. Then you will be blackballed for the rest if your career. Oh and by the way all for very low pay. Pay is less than any of the other major counties. Good Luck.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPositions in management are limited and very competitive. But if you know the right people you can get into management.

    Politics make all the decisions

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people who wanted to do the right thing at one time.

    ConsPolitical environment that dictates direction by those who are in power at the time. Few people are able to put away politics and do what is in the best interest of the County residents.

    Very frustrating.

    Clerk II (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsI only work weekdays and get major holidays off. Also I get to help people with problems they do not deal with on a daily basis.

    ConsYou are expected to be an expert in your field, yet there is virtually no training. No one expects the public to appreciate you, but your bosses don't show any appreciation either. I guess they have the attitude that you should be glad to have a job at all. I guess that is why some many people leave within two years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow your employees that you appreciate all their hard work. You cannot run a government without people. The average county employee does not make a lot of money, yet we come to work everyday ready to give 110%. At least pretend to care.

    When you're here you're on our time..... make sure you know your place!

    County Clerk (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe benefits are great! PTO is pretty good when you're allowed to use it. Great learning experience if you're interested in Criminal Justice or if you're trying to figure out a career path.

    ConsYou aren't allowed to be sick, have kids, or have a life outside this place. You're captive and property of Dallas County. I am much youger than most of the people I work work with and have noticed that people are bitter and jealous! There are a lot of underhanded things that go on. The County is mostly about a dollar, or atleast how to keep it in their pockets and pay the big wigs. EX. commisioners.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who work for you, take their suggestions into consideration. Most of the people there hae some pretty good ideas.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
