    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nickel and diming people who agree to work part time, with no benefits and then pressured to sign contracts that they can be let go at any time and for no reason is borderline unethical. In the department I landed in, the micromanager didn't have the skills and education to do her job while humiliating her subordinates. When she wanted someone gone, she made up an accusation and said "get out". Shasta County doesn't demonstrate any accountability to the community with extra help positions. They just bury the bodies of expendable people and no one asks what happened. Its disgraceful, I wouldn't work for them or recommend anyone else consider it, in their social services departments. At general meetings I heard a lot of disgusted employees. The county
     needs to deal with their heavy handed power tripping unqualified managers

    I have been working at Shasta County full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A paycheck with benefits is great

    Cons

    One of my first required county wide trainings was an eye opener as coworkers from various departments shared their disgust with disrespectful managers. My own manager was not remotely qualified for her job lacking the education and skills to do quality work. She micromanaged her staff into quitting, or hating their work. She got promoted for that and this seems to be how the county rewards arrogance and incompetence. Arrogance is the operative word when dealing with management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and realize there is a morale issue that could be improved if you provided any indication that you cared for your staff's career and well-being

    Doesn't Recommend
