    I worked at San Bernardino County full-time

    Pros

    Several advancement opportunities, nice break room and conference rooms, work equipment provided is decent.

    Cons

    Unprofessional and toxic work environment, micro managers, managers have no knowledge of program they are in charge of, lack of integrity, mean-spirited colleagues, terrible work ethnic amongst employees

    Advice to Management

    Thoroughly investigate the work of those you plan to promote. Look at their work ethnic and reports. Can they do the job first? A lot of gossiping and pettiness amongst colleagues. It felt like high school. Ridiculous. Once a decent supervisor left, so did I. There was no reason to stay any longer. Benefits are terrible. Board of Supervisors and upper management are greedy and elitist. If you can’t get in anywhere else as an EHS Trainee, get the experience, pass the State exam, then leave as soon as you can. The amount of unprofessionalism in this department is incredible. I would not recommend this workplace or this County to a friend. Things haven’t changed and they won’t change. They have been promoting their friends who have terrible work ethic, lazy, dishonest, who copy information from other inspector’s reports and onto their own without double checking facts and statements.
