I have been working at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There really are not any benefits to working for the State of Georgia Department of Human Resources. The benefits that once came with working a State job are now over. The DHR now contracts out their employment to temporary agencies that do not grant any benefits.

Cons

There are no benefits that come along with working with State Agencies anymore. If you work directly with the state, you get benefits, but not with the agencies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start hiring directly again and do not try to save money by cutting corners with temp agencies.

    Pros

    Decent benefits as far as time off and sick days, however the work load is so great that its hard to get the time you earned off

    The state is notorious for not paying what a person is worth then they expect you to work twice as hard....I have been there for over five years with no raise....

    I worked at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and hours (if you are not oncall.) The opportunity to help children.

    Cons

    Supervisors who get their jobs because of who they know. They are not trained and don't know how to train. Tell you to do something then backtracks and leaves you holding the bag.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to why employees are leaving/getting terminated. Create some kind of exit survey that only Atlanta sees.
