Childcare Provider (Former Employee), Fresno, CA – February 24, 2015
A typical day at work was picking up the children I would look after from school and take them to their home to look after them until their grandmother got off school or work. The most enjoyable part of the job was everything. There was not a hard part about the job. When I work I have a smile all the time and enjoy working.
OA (Former Employee), fairgrounds – October 15, 2014
Pros: meet new people
Cons: work place bulling is horrific
This is not a place you want to work if you would like to move up. There is favoritism and lord forbid you get on someone bad side you will never move up or in any direction. They have work place bulling and nothing is done about it. You would think that the county would be a professional work environment but it’s far from it more like a slave camp you go to work and grin and bear it. High turnover due to the mistreatment of employees; New employees don't last long have to have tough skin to work there supervisor and upper management very disrespectful and degrading to employees. They have a union (SEU) but don't look for help from them their worthless. Good luck and learn to suck it up. If you know of anyone that works for the county ask questions before going into enslavement.
Office Assistant III (Former Employee), Fresno, CA – September 26, 2014
Pros: free parking
I would recommend the county as an employer for both young and older. A typical day at work was good; generally very busy, but co-workers always "pitched-in" to help where needed. The hardest part of the job would have occurred while working with unhappy consumers, but one learns to focus on learning how to help consumers.
Eligibility Worker (Current Employee), Fresno, CA – July 15, 2014
Once hired, no formal training for 3+ months. Due to ACA/Obamacare, no one knows what's going on. Computer systems are down on a daily basis and computer programs utilized are plagued with bugs and issues.
Eligibility Worker I (Former Employee), Fresno, CA – July 7, 2013
Cons: stress level very high
interesting. Never know what each day holds. Very stressful. Management didn't really care about us. Just the work. Public very rude and always on our cases. Keeping up with the workload was the most stressful part.
ChildCare Provider (Former Employee), Fresno, CA – May 21, 2013
I love doing the In home child care for my niece I was able to be with her for a year and watch her grow and talk up a storm. I was also with my son with I loved too. I would like to do this again, but in a daycare facility. Teaching them new things and watching their faces light up like, "wow that was so cool do it again", is really the best feeling and you know your doing something right. Being able to do art projects, and playing all day was just really enjoyable.
Productive work environment, assisting families, and fun co-workers.
Social Worker Aide II (Former Employee), Fresno, CA – March 24, 2013
Pros: parent educating, supporting parents and children.
Cons: micro-managing supervisor
Assisting Families with parent education, supervising visits of families attempting to reunite with their children. Input case narratives into the computer system. Communicate daily with supervisor, about issues that may have occurred during visits. Communicate with co-workers about ways to improve the visitation unit. The hardest part of my job was the separation from kids and their parents at the conclusion of their supervised visits. The most enjoyable part of my job is witnessing parent growth within the families, and witnessing the greeting during the visit.
