    The Employment Department gives people a chance to help others in life transitions

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Salem, OR

    ProsGreat staff, good benefits, opportunities to work with the public.

    ConsSame challenges as working in public service. Salaries can sometimes not be competitive. Lowering revenues mean shrinking job opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to ask good questions of business and job seeker customers and utilize the talents of your staff.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I would work here again if given a chance

    Business and Employment Specialist (Current Employee)
    Medford, OR

    ProsBoth the clients and staff I have worked with are great.

    ConsTypical government agency, change comes slow. Sometimes communication doesn't come down to the level it needs to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward innovation and risk-taking.

    Mix reviews and left with questions.

    Employment Adjudicator (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits and coworkers. Causual dress and can even wear shorts in the summer months.

    ConsIn a limited duration position, I felt used and abused. People who have worked there and have union lay off rights but do a bad, do not get fired. Instead, they hire people who are just learning adjudication and expect them to learn their position right after the minimal training. When you get reviewed on decisions, you get mixed feedback, which is not helpful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to manage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
