    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Stable employment during rough economic times

    Cons

    Makes you complacent, you can forget valuable skills, ability, and knowledge useful to the private sector if ever looking for a non-public job. Hard for the private sector to understand how government functionality can relate to their job offers. Low pay and too much politics.

    Advice to Management

    Management should take more responsibility for the department(s) and stop making job issues the employee problem. Disagreements among the hierarchy often become an unpleasant issue for the employees. Promotions are often bequeathed to an internal employee and not based on experience according to how they favor one employee over the other. Going forward there should be no favoritism in choosing a current employee for a position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shelby County Government.

    Interview

    When I applied I only had to participate in a 1 on 1 interview. Formal attire but felt like a friendly conversation. Show up prepared, look professional (dress well), and know why you want to work there. Very basic. Have a resume with you when you appear. Overall a very positive experience.
