Pros

Good and friendly people, you gain responsibilities quickly, very good and extensive training, job security, flex time is great, good benefits, travel and gas reimbursements. If you want to be there long term there is a pension.

Cons

You have to believe that the job is necessary since it's government. The future is uncertain at times depending on politics and budgets. There is more money in private sector.

    Pros

    There is the potential to assist clients and to do real good. Often there is exposure to cases that enable the use of a broad skill set.

    Cons

    The overlayering of supervisors and managers on the basis of political connections hampers advocacy for clients that do not meet a preconceived agenda.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize a broader set of objectives. Empower case workers to apply assistance beyond a narrow performance matrix.

    Pros

    Great seasonal job in the summer. Usually from the end of June to the end of August.
    Decent pay for the work you do. You get paid on break as a lifeguard.
    Fun and relaxing, most coworkers are very nice and sociable

    Cons

    Not much career growth. As a lifeguard, you either stay as a lifeguard, or move up to a head lifeguard. You can be an assistant manager of the facility or manager.
    Some days can be really treacherous, especially on super hot and humid days when staff are low.
    Most of the out door pool buildings are very old
    Outdoor pools aren't that clean compared to indoor pools

    Advice to Management

    Renovate some of the buildings?
