    Current Employee - Juvenile Supervision Officer I in McKinney, TX

    I have been working at Collin County, TX full-time

    Pros

    This job is actually very low stress and is completely stable. It can be a lot of fun working with teenage kids. Their personalities are very entertaining at times. The days off are incredible. Best work schedule ever!

    Cons

    The opportunities for advancement are slim. This is the only thing negative that I can think of about this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management here are top notch. They are without a doubt, the best bosses that I have ever worked for. That is what makes it hard to leave!

    Stable and friendly, but benefits management by elected officials is tiresome.

    I have been working at Collin County, TX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people, decently competitive salary, good benefits, and an atmosphere that still feels small town and like it's a big family.

    Cons

    Benefits are managed by the Commissioners Court (like a city council for the county) and having their politics get involved with our jobs on an annual basis gets very old.

    I worked at Collin County, TX full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work is not difficult, and the offices are nice and new. They just opened a nice cafeteria in the Courthouse building. The benefits are pretty good, though the current Commissioners Court is Tea Party compliant, and they stripped some of the pension benefits last year, and there is a big target on all the employee benefits in the future.

    Cons

    If you don't have a parent, sibling, aunt or uncle already working at the county, or if you didn't start work here when you were 19 years old, you'll never have a real career here. They are the good old boys and girls clubs personified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When experienced, mid-career employees are actively sought after and hired, but not treated as being experienced and capable, the county is wasting their resources, and the newly hired experienced professional is not going to be a satisfied employee. Dissatisfied employees don't make good employees, generally.
