Challenging yet Rewarding Service Provision
DOL Services Specialist (Current Employee), Kings Bay, GANovember 23, 2012
Pros: professional, public relations, networking
Cons: angry, irate and misinformed customers
My typical day is dealing with people from all walks of life seeking employment or filing for unemployment insurance. They often need someone to talk with and often career guidance.

While I do not have most of what they seek, I try to encourage them by reminding them that this too shall pass. Everyday is another opportunity for me to do my best to – more... be provide encouragement as they seek new employment or seeking guidance for a new career.

I truly enjoy working with the public at large and employers as they seek to recruit new employees. – less

Nice place to work if you're content with never moving up!
Employment Specialist (Former Employee), Norcross, GAAugust 8, 2012
Pros: lots of birthday cake & other celebrations!
Cons: low wages & costly benefits!
For what it's worth, The GDOL is not a bad place to be. You learn a lot about people, about yourself, and how you fit into an organization as large as the Department of Labor. I worked with great people, which was the reason I went to work everyday. Because your work is so dependent on someone else's work (and vice versa), you become accustomed to working – more... well as a team and helping each other out. The hardest part of working in my role is dealing with the public - the angry, unemployed public. Most people were nice, but every once in a while, you encounter an angry monster that turns your whole week upside down. Patience is the key to succeeding at the GDOL! – less
