I worked at Dallas County full-time (More than 3 years)
Lots of opportunity to deal directly with troubled youth and their families. Decent pay for the most part, great co-workers and dedicated staff.
Poor management- many of them have egomaniacal tendencies . Hard to get supplies or support at times. Only three call offs a year, plus a stay-over list that can be overwhelming if you have other obligations
Advice to Management
Treat staff with more respect and do more to acknowledge individual high performers. Understand that the job is not the only thing in an employees' life. Have a more flexible work-life balance.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dallas County in June 2017.
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.
