    Pros

    They have really good incentives and benefits. They have exercise policy now where you get 30 minutes of paid time to exercise and you can use it in the morning, at lunch or end your 8 hour work day earlier. Also, they offer flex time meaning that as long as you work 40 hours, you can work 4 10 hour days and have a day off.

    Cons

    They do not pay for maternity leave, you have to use your vacation days and then have unpaid leave. The work can be boring or emotionally draining.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Down to earth people work there. Great opportunity to serve the public.

    Cons

    If management doesn't like you, they'll find a way to get rid of you. Forget about getting any help from the Department of Public Safety's HR department. Anything you say they'll sweep under the rug and say "inconclusive" and disregard any argument, or claim you have. HR here treats the Driver's license division like the unwanted step child of the DPS.
