    Former Employee - Public Health Survey Interviewer in Raleigh, NC
    Former Employee - Public Health Survey Interviewer in Raleigh, NC

    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.
