Not a very productive working environment as most individuals place importance on everything else first and their work last.
Housekeeper (Current Employee), Moreno Valley, CAAugust 26, 2014
Majority of fellow employees on my team appear to take their jobs for granted and really don't appreciate being employed or willing to be responsible. The lead person is not qualified for a position of leadership as he is very inexperienced in this type of work, gives wrong advice and is a mediocre lead person at best.

Office Assistant II (Former Employee), Hemet CaAugust 4, 2014
I really enjoyed my coworker in this job, I only worked as a Temp and wasn't there very long. It was the first time I had worked in mental health/substance abuse. It was interesting, and at one time I considered changing my major, but decided to stick with what I've been doing.

Very structured environment
Senior Accounting Assistant (Former Employee), Riverside, CAJuly 22, 2014
Pros: holidays, 9/80's & 10/40 work schedules, department festivities
Cons: layoffs
During my 7yrs. with the County of Riverside experienced many ups and downs.
The work environment was very structured and fast paced in the Auditor Controller's Dept. The volume of payables (vouchers) was always high and we were expected to meet the needs of the counties departments through out the IE.
I learned a lot while I was there, i.e. Power Point – more... presentations, Microsoft and Excel spreadsheet preparations along with exerting excellent customer service skills to various vendors and internal customers.
Although management could be demanding at times, we as co-workers did master the skills of coming together in a team effort to meet the daily, weekly and monthly department goals in a timely manner.
Overall, my 7 year term there was highly rewarding until the unexpected day when I was laid off work because of budgetary purposes. – less

Ok place to work
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Riverside, CAJuly 9, 2014
Management was not organized and a lot of favoritism. The hardest part were the hours and the amount of workload granted that we had lots of call offs meaning tired and disgrunted workers.

Exciting, challenging, interesting job
Sworn Deputy Sheriff (Former Employee), Riverside, Ca.May 16, 2014
Pros: cool company car, community respect, power to make a difference
Cons: polotics, broken justice system
Typical day: No such thing

I learned things are not always what they appear.

I liked that management did not micro manage.

My co-workers were all very independent.

The hardest part of the job was the hours. Odd shifts, graveyards, etc.

The best part was when you had the chance to really help someone.

Meaningful and challenging work
Information Technology Manager (Current Employee), Riverside, CAApril 3, 2014
Working in local government can be challenging, and in these economic times it is certainly not as secure as it once was. However, the benefits remain adequate and the pay is competitive.

More importantly, the sector of local government that I have worked in for the past 14 years has a moral reward. There is a feeling of accomplishment in that I recognize – more... that I can and have made a difference in the lives of many families. What I have accomplished here matters.

Although the department is quite large, there is a sense of "family" and the majority of employees within the department have long tenure of 10, 20, even 40 years. The fact is that we spend more time with each other than with our own families. We respect each other, work well together, and recognize that what we do is important. The vast majority of department employees, from executive management to line staff, genuinely care and do everything in our power to meet or exceed our mission and achieve our departmental goals.

It has been my sincere pleasure and reward to work in this department and with these extraordinary people. However, times are changing and the way of IT in local government is changing, as well. Consequently, I am looking for a new challenge and opportunity to make a difference. – less
