Secretary Treasurer (Former Employee) – Rio Piedras, PR – October 10, 2017
It is a big challenge to work finance in Puerto Rico's economy in 2017. People you can trust are required and very important to meet the overall objectives of the organization, also people who believe in you and in your capabilities. It is a special place with special people. The most enjoyable part of these years has been to create many new projects.

Administrator (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – August 24, 2017
It is a School System that focuses mainly on instructional staff as it relates to raises, professional growth and continued education opportunities. They have made some improvements for non-instructional staff over the years, improving professional administrative staff salaries but average for non-degreed support staff.
Leadership and goals are constantly changing and may be a challenge to keep up with. Politics has a strong influence. Policies are sometimes carried out inconsistently, based on interpretation, preferences and individual leadership.
It is family friendly with great holidays, annual and sick leave but may limit career growth and opportunities for non-instructional professionals
Holidays, vacation, annual & sick leave, health benefits

The opportunity for advancements. Management was concerned about our welfare and was quick to resolve every issues. Workers were friendly and greeted each other by first name. With a promotion there was a rise in salary.
I enjoyed working for DOF because they gave me the opportunity to learn finances and be able to help others with questions and concerns they have. They have taught me so much as to how to prepare reports, the importance of journal entry, and the importance of federally funded account.

Working for the Dept of Finance is educational. You learn about property taxes and the laws within in the city. You learn what is important to the citizens that live in New York City. The management is helpful and willing to step in when needed. The co-workers work as a team. The hardest part is getting certain people to understand the way the agency works.

Administrative Officer V (Current Employee) – Manila, AR – June 21, 2015
My day starts and ends with constant communication with my co-employees relative to their concerns on their benefits, relations with management, requirements for travel authorities. Most of the time, I am preparing communications/memorandums on HR policies, information dissemination.
I have learned that each employee is unique and each has his/her potentials that when recognized fully or when management has given enough training/skills enhancement, that training will also be given back to the organization.
The hardest part of my job is when there's a need to fire or drop a certain employee after thorough evaluation that the same employee is not already fit to work or has violated regulations, legal enough to drop him/her from the rolls.
Most enjoyable part of the job is whenever you have helped someone solved his concerns or at least find a way to better his conditions and whenever I have contributed or drafted some policies that are accepted by the "higher" bosses improving the state of the organization.
Clerical Assistant (Former Employee) – Hot Springs National Park, AR – April 30, 2015
The Revenue office is a difficult place to work, most customers come in angry and you have to know how to deal. I learned different coping skills. My co- workers, I could not have done the job with out them, they taught me all I knew. The hardest part of the job was balancing your drawer at 6pm, especially after you have taken in about $50,000.00 in sales tax etc..... Being with the public.

A typical day at work is file documents such as checks and check stubs for the government. I gathered quotes from different stores and purchased orders. My co- workers were friendly but they were very serious about their work. They began to trust me so they would go out to eat lunch I would stay at the office and assist any customers that needed help. The hardest part of the job was when I was hired there was an audit so I had to provide specific files to the auditor, but what I enjoyed most was on every Fridays we got off at work at 4:00 P.M.
