ELIGIBILITY SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Cape Girardeau, MO – January 28, 2013
Pros: the holidays off and other benefits
Cons: the healthcare went downhill and that is why many take this job
I enjoyed the majority of my coworkers, they pulled together on the hard days. I learned a lot about how state government works and the Medicaid system that I feel was life-changing. I enjoy helping people especially if they are hurting, unemployed, or just need a listening ear. The hardest part of the job became the amount of workload an individual – more... was required to carry, because you became so stressed you couldn't enjoy the job. I had some really great managers and some less than great but I did my best for both. The most enjoyable part of the job was making new friends in my coworkers and helping people that were at a very low place in their lives. – less
