Pre-Trail Bond Officer (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 10, 2017
I enjoy working for Bexar County because my day goes by fast. I am the Lead Bond Officer on my work shift and upper management looks to me for training new hires. They send me to the jail on certain days the Courts are open because they know I am capable of working by myself in this fast paced and stressful environment. I have been told over and over by my Superiors that I do great work.
Clerk Office (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 12, 2017
Working for Bexar county gives you the impression that you work life should be the only life you have. The County is by who knows who and if your in the in crowd. Not much professionalism happens there. From the Older employees yes but younger generation is very unprofessional and rude. But this behavior is allowed with the County. You are always reminded your easily replaceable.
I wouldn't recommend anyone to work at Bexar County. No good management and the performance is lacking. The communication is poor, I didn't know who was my manager was and it took two weeks for the manager to introduce.
Clerk Office (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 8, 2017
Very fast pace working environment, Must learn fast and not make mistakes, Not a very friendly customer service environment, Keep to yourself and just do your work, The work itself was very interesting and I found it to be very great learning experience, I enjoyed it, The atmosphere not to pleasant.
Juvenile Corrections Officer (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 18, 2017
There is a great amount of favoritism among management and they reward you based on how much they like you rather than how hard you work. Staff lack team effort and there's constant gossiping and backstabbing. Management ignores many ongoing problems and seem to not care and are hardly ever present. The pay and benefits are good but be prepared to put in the work. Dealing with the juvenile offenders can be extremely challenging day to day as you are constantly engaging in altercations, restraining, deescalating, and basically being a counselor all day to the youth. This job is not for everyone and there is a high turnover rate and emergency manning due to staff always quitting or not showing up to work.
Pay, benefits, retirement
Management, favoritism, lack of recognition, no teamwork, emergency manning
bexar county constable (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 2, 2017
this particular precinct offers NO job security. Employment is used as bargaining tool for every new policy that leadership comes up with. It is not possible for an employee to do his/her job properly and efficiently when employment is always threatened.
Government job and busy work environment; work closely with Court Judges.
Bexar County Pre-Trial Officer (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 25, 2017
Everyday was busy as I was in charge of the Drug and Alcohol testing section where I was required to drug test 300 defendants weekly. Learn on the job and was able to move up slightly within but was offered extensive training or classes to further advance self. Meet lots of interesting people.
Adult Detention Sergeant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 23, 2017
Great job with much chance to advance, but understand you are primarily locked inside with some undesireable people who have a great amount of time to ruin your day. This job can turn in to many hours because you cannot leave until relief has arrived and the jail doesn't close for weekends and holidays/ You must be committed and know what you are signing up for; then it is a great job, like no other
Technical Support Specialist III -DAIT (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 23, 2016
I worked for the DAs office for over a year. The job was basic and after the 6 month, you were considered fully trained.
Management has finally been turned over (spring 2016) after 3 years of staff quitting before the end of their probationary period.
No info on the new guy as I left before this but the department remains small with no opportunity for advancement. No special training is offered for IT staff but other departments do get this opportunity.
Something to put or your resume.
Staff appreciates your hard work, interaction with all staff. in house cafeteria.
Parking cost, no pay raises, sneaky management, workplace politics.
Office Assistant IV-Ryan White (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 2, 2016
Office Assistant IV - Ryan White It started off ok and then turned horrible. I was reprimanded for being sad at the office after my mother had passed away like after a month or two. I was moved around a lot because they had no real reason to fire me. I was a hard worker, I did multiple jobs for several departments even though I was only supposed to stick to my own department. They treat you like your a nobody and make you feel even worse. If management is still the same there you shouldn't work here. It will make you miserable. If you are cold hearted and mean then this is the place for you.
ASSISTANT SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 23, 2016
Great place to work if you are an employee looking to stay with one employer rather than jumping from job to job. The only difficult part is that employees are long term some with over 25 years and advancement is very slow.
