Current Employee - Permit Clerk in Savannah, GA
Current Employee - Permit Clerk in Savannah, GA

Pros

a job in this economy
no weekends, off by 5 pm
good benefits, paid time off
my co workers are lovely to get along with

Cons

pay-its a government job, so you're not gonna be getting any raises or bonuses too often
career advancement- you get in the front door on your own merit, once you're in, you have to kiss and "politic" to get a promotion
promotions are based on who likes you
no tuition reimbursement if they dont like your classes
pension is auto taken out your check-you cant opt out!!
supervisor is not at all concerned about you or your personal career growth!!

Advice to Management

need to give at least a cost of living raise every year
supervisors need to care more about their employees and how to advance them in the next area of career growth
supervisors should get an annual review from their workers, bet a lot of changes would be made
offer better starting pay

    Pros

    Every shift is always something different. Guys in the stations are great and easy to get along with . And benefits are pretty good.
