    Former Employee - Intern in Canyon Country, CA
    Recommends

    I worked at Los Angeles County Department of Public Health for more than a year

    Pros

    I had a great time learning a lot about the administrative side of public health. The coworkers were friendly and the work place atmosphere was nice.

    Cons

    The only con is that there wasn't a realistic way to turn your internship into a job. This is because there are required exams prior to being considered for a position.

    I have been working at Los Angeles County Department of Public Health

    Pros

    Great flexibility in hours allows you to take time off when needed for school purposes. Coworkers are nice and great resource for learning. Maximum 30 hours a week.

    Cons

    Sometimes lack of cutting edge technology. Will be placed in various areas of IT based on group that interviews you. If you interview for the tech support team, expect to be a phone tech and IT support. If you interview for web development, expect to do web dev and app dev. If you interview for network team, expect to do network support. Maximum 30 hours working a week.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice to management. Despite limited hours, team leads and supervisors will assign tasks that improve your skills in various areas and are actually critical towards various department goals and not just fulfilling minor content or service tickets, although that is part of job.
