    I have been working at State of North Carolina full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most workers are friendly and there is always something to keep you busy. You stay involved with community and state issues.

    Cons

    Compensation is very poor and management/state supervisors rarely commend workers if they are working hard. Immediate supervisors cannot give you a raise even if they wanted to because of the politicians, most of which have no idea what it's like to work in the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commend workers when they are working hard and making a difference in the office. With no/little raises, the moral in the office can be poor and giving someone praise here and there makes a difference.

    Current Employee - Boiler Operator Shift Supervisor  in  Morganton, NC
    Current Employee - Boiler Operator Shift Supervisor in Morganton, NC

    I have been working at State of North Carolina full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits package it the best.

    Cons

    Pay is not the best leadership needs improving biggest problem lack of training for new hires and lack of pay raises. I have no personal time for family life because I have two jobs. And I cant see any room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training program for new boiler operators would make it safer, and would give our shift supervisors peace of mine and all state employees need a increase in pay lot of your employee have to work two jobs just to live. Please give use some cross training or schooling opportunity so we can improve our chances to apply for other career opportunity with the state.

    Former Employee - Correctional Officer in Troy, NC

    I worked at State of North Carolina full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Minimum Custody male facility next door managaed by the same SI is ok to work at because the officers there are old school good officers. you work hard but it feels less stressful because they work as a team and don't shirk responsibility.

    Cons

    The womens facility is another matter entirely. The inmates are used to getting what they want because the rotation I worked on was run by a Lt. that was either dirty or so soft he had no business in his position. I have seen and heard inmates call him baby and flirt with him so who knows. I reported it to my Sgt. Because your supposed to. She said there was nothing that could be done because it would only put pressure on her and she needed her job. So beware, don't expect to have the needed authority to enforce even the simplest of policyand if you don't care about safety and security you will be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the inmates but care about your staff, especially the good ones.

    I worked at State of North Carolina full-time

    Pros

    Work from home. Very flexible hours. Reasonable work quotas.

    Cons

    Management changes things just for the sake of changing then changes them back.
    No raises for many of the last 10 years. An extra week of vacation doesn't pay the bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the quotas, hire fewer investigators and pay 3-4k more.
