    Pros

    Steady pay and consistent income.
    OK benefits
    Pension
    A job you can take pride in having.
    Almost everything you need to perform job is supplied to you by the agency.

    Cons

    Lack of respect from current top level management.
    Budget cuts require doing much more with much less.
    Dangerous job with only OK compensation.
    Benefits package decreases in coverage every year but costs individuals more out of their pockets almost every year.
    12 hour shifts are long for that environment.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people. Previous administrations did a much better job of that.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pinellas County Sheriff in September 2008.

    Interview

    Hiring process very organized and rigid. Structured interview w/panel. Be prepared, read job descriptions, do your research, that will help you score higher in interview. Current climate is difficult due to budget issues. Culture is paramilitary and closed. There is a great disparity between law enforcement officers and support personnell in terms of compensation, treatment etc.
