    Pros

    Excellent training Four 12 hr shifts to choose from allowing for 3 day weekends every other week. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Employees have to work dispatch radio and take 911calls at same time. Pay too low for major stressful work

    Advice to Management

    Hire call takers so they can focus all attention on the emergency caller and then have separate dispatchers to focus only on the multiple units going to multiple calls. It improves the safety and information accuracy of all involved. The Job turn-over rate of people not lasting a year would not be so high if this was done.

    Pros

    It's a great opportunity to learn how to use equipment like: ROW Machines, Zero Turns and Weed Eaters. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Getting hired on is a looonggg drawn out process. Management is somewhat disorganized and we are underpaid. Much of the workers here are fairly old (45+ and up) and there is a poor work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a decent wage. Acknowledge them every once in a while. Motivate your employees to take some pride in the county.
