Pros

The mini orientation in before the interview is very informative. Fair interview process. You get a response whether you get the position or not. Everyone is friendly in the Office

Cons

You have to be on the eligibility list in order to get a full time job. Many people stay with the county for a long time so it takes a while to promote.

    Pros

    Retirement, location, benefits, competitive salaries. Great for work life balance and families.

    Cons

    Succession planning is preached but not typically adhered to. Lots of outside hires while at the same time laying off quality employees.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.
