    I have been working at Oregon Department of Human Services for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It can be very rewarding knowing you made a difference in someone life. Great oppertunity for advancement if you know the right people. Great training and its paid training.

    Cons

    The agency is unforgiving if you make a mistake the agency will blackball you quick. The agency also plays favoritism really bad. The union SEIU will protect you if you are a crappy worker but if you work hard and do the right thing you are on your own.

    I have been working at Oregon Department of Human Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Easy to get hired if you are a relative, friend, neighbor, nepotism nepotism nepotism.... 2. The only true pro is that no one can "officially" bully you if you call in sick or go on vacation. 3. There are other jobs/careers out side of DHS. 4. There are so many available jobs at DHS. (Because no one in their right mind stays there for more than they have to).

    Cons

    1. Management, no accountability. No transparency. Nepotism and favoritism are super rampant in DHS. 2. Being a member of SEIU is a sham and just takes money out of your paycheck without actually benefiting you in any way. 3. People who take jobs with DHS are as desperate as the people who seek services there. What do I mean by this? People who work there rarely have education...

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out and get at least a bachelors degree like the people you will be babysitting 8 hours a day did. Those same people who will see right through every bull $#it response you come up with day in and day out because you can't seem to see past the veil of failure that is your own life.

    I have been working at Oregon Department of Human Services

    Pros

    Descent salary, good benefits, great working hours, holidays and day off.

    Cons

    The evaluation of employee in trial services is no fair. An HSS3 they evaluate by accuracy, that means the HSS4, an other union coworker evaluate a supervise your job. Hello SEiU a union member can't supervise other Union Member. HSS4 is looking for management interests no for an Union Member. If you are HSS1 you will be evaluate by your capacity of be a great brown nose....

    Advice to Management

    The problem with the government services are not the employees. Is management, they are not good leaders you have to take action about management like the NBA or NFL they don't fired the player, they change the coach when the team is loosing.
