    I worked at Georgia Department of Driver Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with lots of different people from all over. Different kinds of customers from all over. Never a dull moment, fun seeing people pass their tests.

    Cons

    Too little pay. Too little respect for workers. Too little backing up of workers when customers get out of control.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and listen to workers concerns and ideas!

    Pros

    You can learn great things at this company. Especially people skills. Once you're working here, you are secure. There are many benefits working for the government.

    Cons

    Just beware of your stress tolerance...... You ever had to tell someone their license is suspended?!, While they were trying to renew their license, and now, you are legally obligated to confiscate that license. That person will snap. So needless to say stress management will be needed.

    Advice to Management

    Management is Amazing Keep up the hard work.

    I have been working at Georgia Department of Driver Services full-time

    Pros

    My Co workers are great to work with. It is not a physically demanding job and you get on the job paid training,

    Cons

    Constantly changing laws and procedures. Customers can be a little difficult to deal with. Needs to train new hires more in several fields.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to think about how a customer feels about being called before employee is ready for them. Needs to be careful with how loud they may speak about a customer or to a customer.

    Low pay for the responsibility that you have.

    None. It's not management. It's the state.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. That's really about the only positive thing I can say about it. Sorry I can't think of anything else positive to say.

    Cons

    Low salary for a very demanding job. No growth potential. Horrible co-workers. Zero incentive to work there. Equipment never works.
