Taxpayer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – August 22, 2013
It was a great place to work. I was let go when Hennepin County had to lay off 260 employees. There was 3 employees that was let go from my office, and they went by seniority. I would love to go back someday, when the economy picks up again.
Hennepin County is great at starting initiatives, terrible at finishing them. I swear we went through three in the first quarter I worked there. They don't seem to have a direction and management doesn't really seem to be interested in what the employees want. Employees are also slow to change and in some cases, downright resistant.
I attended a lot of meetings about meetings. Never felt like I was making a difference.
