    Positive Outlook

    I worked at State of Michigan - DNR part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed and stress free environment. Very small teams, everyone at work knows each other well. Get to be outdoors at parks all the time. Very diverse work tasks. Small pay raises every season you return for work. Good place to get in if you want to be a Park Officer.

    Cons

    -The park often requires workers from morning into the late evening (~11pm) -You do clean bathrooms and such and the public does find ways to make quite a mess.

  5. "Wonderful - Dangerous - Underappreciated"

    3.0
     

    I worked at State of Michigan - DNR

    Pros

    You work in some of the most beautiful places in Michigan. Many co-workers are fantastic. All uniforms purchased by State.

    Cons

    Don't give adequate training for many of the intense and dangerous situations you will be put in - you will arrest for felonies without a gun. Not at all understanding of a woman building a family - sexism rampant. No incentive for being excellent at your job - length of season completly based on seniority. Seasonal job - better make your weak pay STRETCH.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at State of Michigan - DNR

    Pros

    The mission a vision of the company are thoughtful and well meaning. Some of the employees were genuinely good workers and pleasant to be around. Most people generally appeared professional

    Cons

    The culture attempts to be Christ-centered but fails miserably. Most employees speak negatively about each others work. Management says that they will attempt to do things but conveniently never get around to it. Upper management makes negative comments, and gives others the impression that they are more important than the workers on the floor. Upper management refuses to get their hands dirty in the day to day processes and can generally be found doing nothing if they are not in a meeting. Employees often came in with bad attitudes and some were believed to be doing drugs while on the premises. Drug testing was not conducted at all while I was employed. Very little care was taken when it came to work life balance and yet management often managed to go home at a decent time while the regular employees worked long hours. Place of work was often dirty, unorganized, and chaotic. It was obvious that management had very little knowledge of lean practices. Management made you feel uncomfortable to speak with. Company takes part in many archaic and dishonest work place practices.
