    I have been working at SW Florida Water Management District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at the District for 31 years, although I have seen many changes over the years, we still remain the best organization as a whole. When I retire, I plan to be very proud to say that I worked for the District.

    Cons

    I think with every organization, you will always have some cons. However, my many pros overcome the cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communications channels open with your staff and continue to understand the how important home and workplace balance is. I have a great manager who is not lacking in either of these categories.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at SW Florida Water Management District (Brooksville, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview and one in person interview. Very long process. In person interview was conducted by a panel of three people. They take turns asking pre-screened questions and writing down your responses. You have about an hour and there was plenty of time for you to ask questions.
