Productive and allows you to take initiative
Chesapeake Conservation Corps Member (Former Employee) –  Frederick, MDDecember 14, 2016
Management allowed you to work without micromanaging and allowed you to take initiative to create your own projects within the constraints of the county and their budget. They provided you with various opportunities to expand your skill set with a variety of different projects. On the other hand, they observed a skill you were good at and encouraged you to focus in on it and work on more projects involving those skills. It's a small workplace, which is nice because you get to know everyone on a more personal level. Everybody that worked there was just so nice and willing to help out wherever needed.

Summer Camp Counselor (Former Employee) –  Frederick, MDOctober 26, 2016
No chance for advancement , and it can be stressful

Schedule is never done on time

Some co workers are highly favored


If you can deal with the above , working with the kids is great

Once a great place to work. Not now.
Lead Teacher (Former Employee) –  Frederick, MDSeptember 4, 2012
FCG had been the best place in the world to work. When the new BOCC took office, things went downhill fast. There is absolutely no job security, people are constantly worried about losing their jobs.

Frederick County has many great opportunitys and benefits for their employees. Tuition assistance and reimbursment, paid holidays, vacations and excellent medical and dental insurance. There are also ways to move latteral and vertically throught the county in many different fields. Uniforms are provided and they have a contractor pick up the dirty laundry once a week and have them cleaned for you.
