I worked at Alameda County part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Tight-knit community of employees that come back every year, friendly supervisors, good wages, and fun atmosphere.

Cons

The technology used by ticket sellers and takers is more than a bit outdated and is not exactly user friendly.

Advice to Management

Invest more in the concert acts... bigger performers cost more, but it really makes a difference in fair attendance.

    Pros

    You get to work for your county and make a difference in people's lives. The benefits are awesome.

    Cons

    All the boomers can't quit so they sit around and complain about the good ole days before computers and performance evaluations. They don't do any work so expect to do yours and half of theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Send your executive management to training or make them retire. They have presenteeism and are a help to no one.
