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.
Election Liaison (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 28, 2015
The department was growing and moving into a more technologically based voting system. It was a hard place to work with all the internal politics and warring fiefdoms. I worked hard and minded my business.
Probate Deputy Clerk (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 10, 2014
It was your typical Monday - Friday, 8-5 job. It was monotonous, same work everyday, with slight variation of stations. I learned patience with the court system. Coworkers were great. Management was ok - direct management was fine, higher up, well it's politics. The hardest part was the monotony, the most enjoyable was predictability.

A typical day at work for me involves me working with active, reserve duty members of the military. I help coordinate with the transitioning process for being Medically Discharged from the military. I aslo monitor the RTD (Return to Duty) members that have conditions that allow them to return to there specific job duty. In my experience at Lackland AFB I have learned that I have to show compassion while handling the process of what could be the end of person career. Meaning.. dealing with members who have lost limbs, members that hall terminal illnesses. I have learned to also have a much greater respect level for those who sacrifice there life and time away from families to serve our country. Mu management throughout my whole career working with the Air Force has been AMAZING.. I have been offered positions not only based on my skills, but my professional work ethics, and being a people person. My co-workers have all become family. They have been nothing but supportive to me and my transition to Texas. They are all team players, and make sure everyone in my office is up on the latest trainings or any education that will increase our job performance. The hardest part of my job is the emotions you deal with. (ex.) Having to explain to a member that has lost a limb, that there arent getting the percentage of benefits that they think they should have or better yet deserve. In my past most members have been able to get what they need, The ultimate thing is having to brief a member about there benefits who is already facing the fact they they have a terminal illness.more... I love everything about my job! Especially my co-workers.. Its rewarding to me to help the military members find there way outside of the military. I deal with members who are right out of high school. Being away from family is hard, when your on your Journey alone. I like to say they come to me sometimes just to have a motherly figure conversation, or maybe a home cooked meal.. Either way my door is always open.less
A happy work place usually results in positive results.
Procurement Data Analyst/Buyer (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 4, 2014
On Monday I begin by going over the list from the previous week, setting priorities. I review the progress of existing projects, then check the calendar to refresh my memory on the upcoming week. I want to make sure, as much as possible, that I can dedicate to tasks that move projects forward, so I make habits out of organizational tasks for speed. I've learned that my experience has made me a strong and professional person. Management has the ability to bring out the best in not just themselves, but in others around them. My co-workers are great team players. There was nothing in my prior position that I found overly difficult. To me the most satisfying about my job is it gives me flexibility. I support companies which give the option to be flexible (not abusing it), and have the trust that the employee can get the job done.
A typical day at work is helping tax payers that are either deinquent on their taxes or would like to create an escrow account. I have learned extremely about property taxes and the legal process. A few of my co workers are awesome, but some like to gossip. (Gossip is horrible at this place). The toughest part of my job is the low pay. The most enjoyable part is the schedule M-F.
