    Phenomenal place to work, great employees, horrible union. You must like the outdoors and be in good physical shape.

    I have been working at San Mateo County full-time

    Pros

    Working outside in nature, the pay is good, retirement is good, benefits are good. Leadership at my level is good. They are smart people with good common sense.

    Cons

    cleaning bathrooms can be nasty, work is physically demanding. Lots of public interaction and opinions vary so it's not always good interactions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend more time in the field.

    Interview Details

    Initial screening with a test, then several rounds of interviews. The 1st interview is in front of a panel of 3 supervisors with laptops and notes; serious business. Interview was formulaic and stern. They want to see how well you can verbally explain your experience with analytical work and customer service. I didn't make it past the first imterview, so I'm not sure how the 2nd one is like.
