District Payroll Audit Specialist
Disrict Payroll Audit Specialist (Former Employee) –  Pleasant Hill, CAMay 29, 2016
Good company to work for as far as stability goes; however there is NO OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH HERE.

High turnover in the Payroll department due to an unprofessional manager currently managung this unit. The culture in this group is that of a high-school clique. You are either in or out! I was so happy, and thankful that I was able to get out of this department. So think twice if you want to be in a petty environment before considering accepting this role. Oh yeah, if you are not in the "in crowd" your co-workers will watch your every move and report back to management.

If you are an efficient worker, be ready to pick up your colleagues additional duties even though they are veterans. They (veterans) do just enough to get by, so you can pick up their slack and management doesn’t see a problem with that, and that should raise a RED FLAG!!!!!!!!
Pros
Free parking, catered lunches, 4/10's in the summer
Cons
Management is stuck in a box and any suggestions outside of the box are frowned upon.
