    I worked at Town of Hempstead part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing. I couldn't tell you a single thing about this job that was good. The bosses were a joke, certain higher ups were completely disrespectful and would scream in your face as a discipline.

    Cons

    Solely controlled by politics and if you're not involved with them you may as well quit now. There is absolutely no point in working there, there is no room to make full time and they make a ton of empty promises for that very thing.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management.
