A typical day a work was to keep a balance between the section of DOH and the DOH and other various agencies. The co-workers were excellent and were willing to help each other. I learned life values and how to show compassion for clients outside of the department. The hardest part of the job was not being able to complete some parts of it for long periods – more... of time. The most enjoyable part of the job was finally seeing programs, cases, etc., fall into place making it seem that you have the satisfaction that you have completed what the public expected. – less

Staff Services Analyst (Former Employee), Sacramento, CA – August 20, 2012
During my civil service with the State of California there was really no typical work day once I became an analyst, because management priorities and assignments could change instantly when directed by the department; they did provide the necessary training to complete required work. I learned how to organize and manage my assignments and work day effectively – more... between internal and external customers, and work efficiently with limited resources as budgets decreased. Management offered opportunities to learn different skills to develop oneself, they were also concerned with how family and outside factors could impact daily work. Co-workers were willing to share what they had learned in the past, and assist each other to perform at their best; friendships developed outside of work. A diverse population and workforce increased awareness and acceptance of all segments of society. Hardest part of any position was the short turnaround times for many short-notice drills when legislature requested information. Most enjoyable aspects were producing an excellent work product that was recognized by management and customers. – less
