    Current Employee - Clerk II in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Dallas County full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The work is consistent and it is easy to learn what is required. Task are simple and not overly complicated. Fast paced does not apply here. "Do what you can with the time that is given"

    Cons

    Advancement is nearly impossible to achieve. I took one week to feel confident enough to work unassisted and if you are looking for new challenges or even suggesting more efficient ways to perform tasks, those suggestions may not be taken seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability is lacking and managers are too lenient with employees to the point where managers are being taken advantage of.

    Former Employee - Lead Juvenile Supervision Officer in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Dallas County full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great retirement, medical and other benefits. Feeling of fulfillment helping children.

    Cons

    They will make you work manditory overtime but you wont get paid monetarily. They will give you comp time. Which is off time. But half the time you will not choose what days you use your comp time. They have bully administration who truly do not care how you are spoken to nor how you are treated by your superiors. The buddy system is highly valued over your performance. Even if you have stellar performance, the person buddy buddy with management will be promoted. When confronted with these issues, management target you and ruin your name. Then you will be blackballed for the rest if your career. Oh and by the way all for very low pay. Pay is less than any of the other major counties. Good Luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positions in management are limited and very competitive. But if you know the right people you can get into management.
