    I have been working at Dallas County full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with dedicated people who genuinely want to help Dallas county citizens; guaranteed pension plus voluntary retirement available; daytime business hours with weekends, holidays off

    Cons

    Typical government bureaucracy; very low pay compared to similar positions in the private sector; more emphasis on attendance than on quality work; requiring salaried employees to clock in/out with zero leeway on "tardiness"

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people you hire. Don't micromanage attendance. Salaried employees should not have to use a time clock. Time clock policies should allow some grace time. This is all coming from an employee who has NOT gotten in trouble, but has seen coworkers the victims of witch hunts.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dallas County in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was not long. They asked about 3 questions on multi tasking skills. Three people interviewed me all at once. *Prepare on interview questions and answers.* Took a typing, spelling, and grammar test. *Study on commonly mispelled words and singular/plural possessive ('s and s').* When I passed I received an offer via phone which I accepted.
