Office Clerk (Current Employee) – Shawnee, OK – January 18, 2017
My typical day.. I intern at the DHS office here in Shawnee, I come to work with a smile on my face greeting all my co-workers. Seat down at my desk, turn my phones on at 8 a.m. Then my day begins. I enjoy answering calls, trying to help out who ever I can. I would have to say the hardest part of my job would be when I get clients on the phone that are not so nice. That is when I kill them with kindness, hope that's not bad of me to say. I have always thought that no matter how bad you are talked to especially when in a job setting, that its always best just to be nice, no mater what. The most enjoyable part of my job is the satisfaction that I leave that day with my work done, and I have helped people to the best of my abilities.
Great enviroment, awesome co-workers, love the work.

It was a rewarding job overall. Get to help people who often cannot do many day to day tasks on their own. includes things like cooking and cleaning, scheduling doctors appointments and other basic needs.
Clients sometimes need more help than they are getting.
Economic Support Specialist (Former Employee) – College Park, GA – November 30, 2016
This job was very stressful customers used profanity to describe their problems and there was nothing you could do about it.The state furloughed employees, and there was no room for advancement. The case load was too high averaging 1000 per employee. My position was changed three times due to the lack of employees. The positive part of the job was seeing the satisfaction of happy families, knowing that people benefited by the work I done was very awarding at the end of the day.

Clerk (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – February 25, 2016
The hardest part of the job was to accept that all things can not be fixed. Working for others (customers) I always want to make sure that they are satisfied. It is evident that what can not be fixed is not always broken.
