challenging high security jail
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee), Aurora, COJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: nice hours, over time, vacation, new challages, week end and holidays off
Cons: low pay, on call, high priced heathcare, forced retierment plane, lack of employee application.
A typical day at work is maintaining the Plumbing, Electrical and all as need repairs in the detention center. What I learn is the industy is allways changeing and inproveing how the job in done. I dont see the management much I self start every day if the manager needs me he calls me or he puts in a work ticket. I mainly work alone most days some times – more... I train the new techs coming in to the county on how the jail works. The hardest part of the job is the tool control in the jail and the on call. The most enjoyable part of the job is the challages of the jail. I have to do repairs in the jail to a high security level so alot of the time it is thinking out side the box. – less

Cons: defending pedophiles
I would arrive on my assigned days and check my inbox. I usually had a list of various duties or errands from different investigators. They varied from visiting a client in the jail to review discoveries with them or to drop off clothes for them to wear for their court the next day. I was also responsible for estimating to the best of my ability what – more... size our client wore from dress clothes to shoes. Many days consisted of hunting down witnesses in our cases that we were serving a subpoenas to. Some just didn't want to be involved others were people who stayed at many places. – less

A Truly Great Place To Work
Assistant Inventory Clerk (Former Employee), Aurora, COMarch 30, 2012
Pros: the people
Arapahoe County is a great place to work. The people are awesome and they have a true commitment to the community. If I hadn't been laid off due to the funding of my Temporary-Grant Funded position I would have retired there.
