    Hours are great. Good holiday and vacations.

    Pay is bad. Using the sick time you have is difficult. To call and when you are sick you are reprimanded??

    Advice to Management

    Look at the overall experience and work of the individual and base raises and rewards on this

    Pros

    good benefits but they come with a high price (stress)

    Cons

    everything is political, there are no technical decisions. Everyone plays politics and there are always hidden agendas. This is true from the worker bees to the top.

    Pros

    The work is consistent and it is easy to learn what is required. Task are simple and not overly complicated. Fast paced does not apply here. "Do what you can with the time that is given"

    Cons

    Advancement is nearly impossible to achieve. I took one week to feel confident enough to work unassisted and if you are looking for new challenges or even suggesting more efficient ways to perform tasks, those suggestions may not be taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability is lacking and managers are too lenient with employees to the point where managers are being taken advantage of.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good, easy way to get into the county and move around to other departments. salary is ok too.

    Cons

    Our pay is mandated by the county commissioners and the county voters. Often times the voters dont realize that what they vote on affects the employees as much as it really does.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the employees concerns. Keeping morale up will keep your workers working hard and productivity up. Listen, then direct.
