    I worked at Health and Environmental Control Department of South Carolina full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    37.5 hour work week with lots of leave compared to private sector. In general management was flexible and allowed for an adequate work/life balance.

    Cons

    Pay was very low compared to private sector and opportunity for upward mobility was low. There had been no real raises (other than to offset for retirement deduction increases) since around 2008. The only viable way to increase your pay was to apply and get higher paying internal positions. High variability in workload across different positions within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be flexible and allow for adequate work-life balance and push for higher employee pay.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Health and Environmental Control Department of South Carolina.

    Interview

    After applying I was asked to complete a series of essay questions. A week after submitting them I interviewed in front of a panel of three managers and then was called back for another interview two weeks later. Then, after a month of silence I was called back for a third interview.

    The whole process seemed to be incredibly poorly managed. There was no mention of a second interview when I asked about it during the first interview. The second interview was conducted by people without any direct supervision of the job and throughout the process I got a lot of repeat questions, as if they didn't actually check over the previous interview's records.

    14 weeks from my application until they made a decision. The whole process gave the impression of a poorly run organization.
