Advice to ManagementAdvice

Award employees for work they have done that shows on their annual reviews. There is no reason a person with a perfect annual review score should not be a full-time employee. You are losing good people.

    For a government agency, the county runs very efficiently and productively.

    Great benefits, job security and great co-workers!

    Cons

    For me the location was far and not too much flex time in my position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute more flex and job sharing to help working families.

    Love the job, dislike management's unrealistic expectation and treatment of employees.

    Pros

    Bottom line, Arapahoe County pays okay. Regardless of the number of hours worked in a month, you will be paid the salary of 2618.00 (unless of course, you are authorized OT- then you do get paid time and a half.) Great co workers and a fulfilment of helping others in need. 8 hours of sick and vacation accrue every month and off on some unsuspecting holidays (Columbus Day). Oh yeah, a really great training program. They have the greatest trainers. Great Community Support Services division manager, who acknowledges you when you walk by. Seriously.

    Cons

    Most of the supervisors are pretty rude and not quite understanding which, of course, makes the job harder. The second a question is asked they pretend to know and then brush you off like you are bothering them. We are given so many interviews and applications to process a day, with only 1 hour to do everything asked. They constantly change the process of the business so the second you get something they are changing it again. There are just so many problems with supervisor, I cannot and will not go into it all. Pretty much the turnover rate is so high, not because the job itself, but because of management treatment.
