Could be so much more
Eligibility Worker III (Current Employee) –  Placerville, CAAugust 31, 2016
Sadly, not a great place to work. I loved helping those in need in the community. I hated the culture. There is too much nepotism and the concomitant favoritism. Either you're in or your out around there. Training Department is still trying to figure out what they are trying to accomplish, but as one trainer said, "You're just trainees. Once I'm done with you, I never have to speak to you again." Clearly, not a lot of investment in the success of new hires.

You won't have to work overtime. There does seem to be room for advancement; however, you better be part of the "inner circle" if you want to move up. Management has adopted a secretive method of ranking employees; you won't know why you're being told you're not up to snuff, but they do and think you should know the reasons, although they will fail to specifically tell you, so you will not have a clue on how to improve to meet their standards. They use fear and intimidation to manage, meaning you will be talked to in ways you may have never experienced before. There seems to be a real management decision to keep everyone on their toes by making them feel that they are about to be fired any minute. A very scary, sad place to work... Work there if you dare. It all looks friendly and happy on the surface; underneath are a lot of very unhappy people working at a job they hate because they need the job and the income (which is below standard for the work required.)
Pros
There is room for advancement
Cons
No, just no. You'll regret it.
