Park Ranger (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 11, 2018
The Director lack leadership and positive motives for hi subordinate staff. The CAO needs to investigate the Director of Parks and Recreation for unethical standards and fraud. The culture in this department is cunning and undesirable. The Director is cut-throat and nobody likes working under his authority.
Cashier (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 17, 2017
mangers where friendly they treated you like family if you needed some time off for important reasons. pay if really good for an entry level job. i would recommend for a friend only down side for some people is that it is a desk job.
Park Attendant (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 25, 2017
Still new to position. I enjoy the location and being out side. I’m not to impressed with the pay rate and/or the amount of time between potential raises. Seems that the facility runs smoothly with adequate personnel to safely take on any tasks. For the most part, the staff is more than willing to share their knowledge and experience. The position I’m in is a stepping stone.
RECORDS CLERK (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 14, 2017
The County of San Diego has great benefits and a pretty good working schedule for many people. The pay could be more equitable for some there, but overall there are worse places to work. I just feel as though I may be ready for a change.
Air Pollution Inspector (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 11, 2017
My time with the County was very interesting. My Supervisor was really good and took interest in the people he supervised. However, when upper management changed, the whole division changed and caused our department to not be as family oriented as it has previously been. People became more cutthroat and divided (stressful).

Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 19, 2017
I enjoyed a 16 year career with the County of San Diego. My work assignments were very different throughout my career with majority of my time in the Department of Human Resources.
What I learned in this profession was the different aspects of Human Resources. Workers' Compensation, Recruitment & Selection, Medical Standards and Employee Development.
My co-worker's over the years were the best and have been a great group of dedicated people who cared about the quality of their work. Specifically, within the training department we pushed through a lot of great and fun quality training (self improvement & mandatory training's) for the workplace that people really enjoyed taking.
The hardest part of the job was not always having the proper resources available to provide the right information. However, over the course of my career I had found that sometimes, especially within a government, setting these things take time.
The most enjoyable part of my career was working with a wonderful team of people looking to make a difference in the County of San Diego.
The county might provide job security and advancement but they don't care about the workers
Human Services Specialist (Current Employee) – Oceanside, CA – September 16, 2017
I started at the county right in the middle of contract negotiations and it just proves the county doesn't care about it's employees, and does not want to pay them. They want to get as much work out of you as they can for as little as possible. If you are going to work for the county make sure you have a job that is going to pay you well enough to live in the county or you are looking at a very long commute.
Human Services Specialist (Current Employee) – Escondido, CA – September 13, 2017
I feel secure at my job. Yet, we've been working with our union for fair wages. We're the lowest paid county in the state and we're just hoping to stay competitive in our wage earnings. The county offers a retirement plan, paid vacation and holidays all pluses. Working in a Family Resorce Center we all feel underpaid and over worked!
Support Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mission Valley, CA – August 16, 2017
Too much work and not enough pay. I gave my all to be the best Support Service Coordinator for RI International. I believe that if I would have given myself a elf evaluation, I'd still work there. My leader/supervisor was a friend and not a supervisor. Both of which would/could have said that "I" was not doing a good job.
