I have been working at City of Winston-Salem full-time (Less than a year)
Benefits for government are still good, although the future is murky.
Salaries for the majority of the positions are much lower than the private sector.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at City of Winston-Salem (Winston-Salem, NC) in October 2016.
Applied online, got a response within 2 weeks. Did the 1st round of interviews with 3 current city employees, heard back after a week and a half. Did a second interview at city hall with 2 people. Its been 3 weeks and still waiting to hear back with final results.
