I worked at State of North Carolina part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible schedules with day, evening, and weekend hours available. This job may be ideal for students, retirees, and those who don't need health insurance or other benefits, as agency does not provide any benefits to its temporary employees no matter how many years they work there.

Cons

There is very little opportunity to move into full-time permanent positions with benefits. The pay, while above minimum wage, is quite low. Due to government budget cuts, the agency provides neither raises (annual or otherwise) nor bonuses for its temporary employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Opportunities for advancement, annual raises, and bonuses or other incentives (besides flexible work schedules) would allow agency to retain good employees longer.

    Pros

    Have relatively good retirement benefits
    Vacation/sick leave
    Can work from home

    Cons

    Lack of good senior level management
    No strategic plan
    Chaos
    Senior management does not listen to staff and does not care what we think
    Too few staff to maintain customer service level
    Great employees who care about the work they are doing are leaving in droves because of lack of commitment from the top level of management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision and stick with it
    Value the opinions of people who have been here longer than you
    Don't expect 1 person to do the work of 10
