    I worked at State of Washington full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Love the independence of the job is and working outdoors in the summer is nice. Pay is not too bad considering the job duties. Working 4-10's is a bonus. The supervisors were really pleasant to work with and very enthusiastic about their jobs.

    Cons

    Not enough time to set the traps and plan where they should go, way too rushed. A lot of time is spent at home beyond the 10 paid hours making traps and planning placements. Time management becomes easier mid-way through and at the end of the season. The job can get monotonous after while but it ends soon enough since it is a seasonal job.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps add at least a week to the beginning of the season so traps can be made and placements planned before the actual placement begins.

    I have been working at State of Washington full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Civil service - work feels more meaningful. The development work is on par with private companies. However, it's not about the bottom line and net profit.

    Cons

    Work is on par with the private industry. However, it pays much less.

    Advice to Management

    Be more competitive of salary to retain talent.
