    I worked at CareerSource Florida full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get a job and a paycheck - if you're lucky and liked

    Cons

    Business Services - this person is a lesion on what CS is supposed to be about. Only cares about herself, watch your back, she's all smiles but not mentally stable and will come after you if you're a smart woman, especially.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being concerned about your metrics/state funding/brown nosing and get people actual jobs without your own personnel sabotaging them.

    Pros

    - A lot of career opportunities within CareerSource
    - Great pay
    - Great benefits
    - Great co-workers
    - Sense of purpose

    Cons
