    I worked at State of Nevada full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    State government jobs offer decent pay compared to most hourly jobs in Carson City. The retirement and health benefits are not what they used to be, but still better than a lot of places.

    Cons

    No easy career ladders to build on given how the hiring process works. Mentoring is hard to do when you supervise others because of this.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at State of Nevada full-time

    Pros

    There was a lot of overtime offered

    Cons

    The supervisors were not helpful to new employees, they expected you to know everything with very little training.

    The pay is awful for what you have to deal with and the type of situations you are put in.

    You have to work weekends, most likely will never get them off.

    After a few months you will switch shifts (Day, Swing, Graveyard)

    You do not get any breaks for lunch

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training for new employees, explain everything in detail (why you do things a certain way). Its hard being thrown in that job without a complete understanding of the job at hand.
