Judicial Office Manager * Pinal County Clerk (Current Employee), Florence, AZJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: endless learning opportunities
Cons: politics and employees that do not work hard and make too many errors have too much protection
Working for the Circuit Court in Florida was my first real job. What I didn't realize when I started at 18 that working for the courts would become a passion. Working for the courts you learn to multi-task, organize your work by priorities and learn so much about the system. Over a decade the courtroom was my classroom and it helped me obtain my Bachelor – more... and Master degree in Criminal Justice. The position prepared me for the leadership roll I hold now as I get to research the rules of law and explore other case types other than criminal. The law is so complicated and interesting at the same time. The hardest part of the job, especially with managing people is trying to balance all the different personalities and understanding you cannot make everyone happy. Learning to communicate expectations so they are clear is one of the most important lessons I have learned. – less

Productive environment with learning and job improvement opportunities
McLean County Clerk (Current Employee), Bloomington, ILDecember 13, 2013
Pros: higher paying, good motivational atmosphere, learning opportunities
Cons: high stress, irritable clients, lack of respect
A general day at work consisted of managing case files forthe Judge's docket from 9 am to 4:30 pm. In the midst of receiveing files from court and entering the judgement, attorneys would come into the office to set dates for future cases or the continuances of current cases. In order to best organize this, docket date sheets are kept up to show available – more... times and days for the Judge to set these cases in the courtroom.
Generally, I learned quite a few legal terms that I had not known previously. This aided in my studies to complete the LSAT. My skills in time management and scheduling were also improved.
Management was very thorough with training and communication thereafter. Allowance for mishaps in the personal life were not very well handled.
My coworkers were generally helpful and informative.
The most difficult aspect of this job was simply the overload of work. There were constantly files piling up and that held a lot of pressure for someone just entering the job with little to no experience.
The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing firsthand the operation of the legal system and speaking with parties on both sides, including witnessing the perspective of a Judge making decisions. – less

Traffic Clerk I, Hernando County Clerk (Former Employee), Brooksville, FLSeptember 19, 2013
Pros: work schedule
Cons: management is not fair
I loved my job as a Traffic Clerk I. I took traffic ticket payments, assist Judges with traffic infraction court hearings, prepared court documents, and processed mail. I learned how to deal with customers in difficult situations in a calm yet effective manner. Management wasn't the best. There was a lot of conflict regarding employees time off and – more... there was a lack of appreciation for employees. I loved my coworkers. The department is small with only 6 Clerks including the Supervisor. The hardest part of the job was the constant change and managements failure to provide adequate training. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people and my coworkers. We made the best of our days and I certainly went out of my way to make a painful and costly situation for customers a somewhat pleasant experience. – less

Clerk (Former Employee), New Port Richey, FLNovember 14, 2012
Pros: the people i worked with and the pay
Cons: the temp of the place and my boss
My typical day at work was pretty boring i sat at a desk all day checking court files making sure they were correct and closed out right then i would box them up, and placed them so they could be sent to the next department. I learned it is a very complex place in courts and it requires a lot of work. Then management as a whole was fine my boss however – more... could manage to make her entire department mad at her within about 5 minutes. I got along with almost all my co-workers. I enjoyed talking with them and going to lunch with them. The hardest part of my job was keeping my attention on the files themselves. – less

Pros: healthcare
A typical day for me in the Domestic Relations Division includes but is not limited to irate, frustrated and sad individuals that are planning to or in the process of divorce which may include child support issues and or domestic violence. There are also many Attorneys that I assist on a daily basis with filing documents, requesting forms and paying – more... fees. This is a very busy and fast paced department. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to assist the customers in a timely manner with accurate information to avoid them having to run around from one location to another. – less

Clerk (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 30, 2012
I entered tickets from police agencies all over Chicago. I've learned that it is always a good thing to have training from other jobs, it'll help you advance in the field more quickly, but everything was fair. Management was always helpful and helped you reach your potential and guidelines. I loved my co-workers I am friends with most of them to this – more... day. the hardest part was staying up to speed with all the work that we were receiving. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people, work environment, and steady flow of work. – less
