CVS Admin Assistant I, Borger, TX 79007 - November 21, 2017
The admin job is not quite as stressful as a caseworker position (which I did previous to this job); however, it comes with it's own stresses day to day. Overall, at my particular office, I was the admin for most of the office in addition to just my unit. They had their own admins, but they were either located outside of our office building or were too lazy to do anything. I enjoyed most of the coworkers in my unit but not so much the others in the office. That office had a high turnover rate for investigators so I went through a lot of paperwork on just new hires. DFPS provides amazing benefits. If I wasn't relocating to another state, I would have stayed there for a long time because they offer Student Loan Forgiveness through the government (stay there 10 years and pay on time with your loans and they forgive the rest). Overall, DFPS is a HIGHLY stressful company to work for and you have to be able to put your job before your family and anything else because that is just the nature of the job. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has already done everything in life that they want to do (vacations, traveling, grown children, etc.) because with this job, you are unlikely to be able to guarantee a vacation no matter how far in advanced you schedule it because emergencies happen and you have to be available 24/7. This includes admin positions (although not often) because you may have to go to the office to help with paperwork on a removal or to do child watch after a child has been removed but has no place to go. You absolutely have to have a passion for helping children AND families.
