College Intern-Clerk (Former Employee), Fremont, OH – June 17, 2014
For me a typical work day would have been working alongside two other coworkers. I would sit at a computer all day and answer the phone. When the other examiners were to busy, I would assist them with helping a customer, by checking them in and administering the test that they were there for.
Account Clerk IV (Former Employee), Wailuku, HI – June 8, 2014
Overall its 3star. Job is heavy no more time to even go to bathroom. Inmates are very demanding person considering the place their in. Compensation benefit depends on the union. As long as there is lawbreakers prison is there so it's secured. Room for advancement it took me 5 years to move from Account 3 to Account 4. Slow. Not much opportunity for – more... advancement. Unstable management because I have worked three wardens in my 13 years. Job is multicultural as Hawaii is a multicultural state in USA. – less
Student Police Cadet (Current Employee), Dover, DE – June 7, 2014
This job was a way for me to balance a life of school and working. At Delaware State University I was able to become a student police cadet in which some days were the same and other days were not. During events, I would act as security conducting searches through personal property such as purses and book bags when entering a party or a football game. – more... Also I would conduct pat downs when students entered an on campus party. A typical week would involve me acting as a second party between those that need help or assistance and the police on Delaware State Campus in the housing facilities in campus. – less
Sr. Patrolman (Former Employee), Truth or Consequences, NM – May 31, 2014
Pros: great benifits, good salary, great special assignments.
Cons: having to work holidays, working odd hours, wearing the black uniform on summer days.
In my 21 years working for the New Mexico State Police I have gained so much experience. From enforcing traffic laws in uniform to investigating felonious crimes as a detective. I have also had the privilege to work dignitary protection from the US Presidents to Governors out of state. Working hand in hand with co-workers and working efficient as a – more... team to complete the project. The best part of the job was helping the less fortunate, abandoned, abused victims and at the end of the day receiving a "thank you" which was the best reward of all. – less

The Dept. of Public Safety is an awsome company to work for. Its a great place for those looking to start a career in law enforcement.

Administrative Assistant III (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – February 26, 2014
Cons: segregation within the work environment
Overall the experience was good. It takes a little adjusting for a civilian working for a Law Enforcement Agency. Civilian and Law Enforcement cultures are completely two separate entities.
My typical work day consisted of: *Providing the general public with information regarding traffic citations and other needed law enforcement agency information *Assistant – more... troopers with various administrative needs *Serving as a liaison to various courts within the Clark County and its surrounding counties
I learned that working with Law Enforcement takes patience and understanding that they have a different mindset due to extensive training. – less

Office Clerical Support (Current Employee), Jackson, MS – February 5, 2014
Pros: my job does provide reasonable insurance for minor children.
Cons: only getting paid once a month instead of twice a month is a strain at times being a single parent.
A typical day at work requires the mindset that you have to be of sound judgement in every situation and that you must always be firm but fair to customers/drivers. I have learned that every situation is different and that you must be considerate of others at all times. The management in our department can stand for improvement. My co-workers are decent – more... people and are fair but firm. The hardest part of my job is not being able to advance to different positions or get promoted on a pay scale. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting different people from all over the country and being able to help people in all circumstances. – less
