I helped young people who were displaced and in the system sometimes they just spent the week end with me other times they stayed with me for months. Most of the time the students were sad because they had be placed in one foster home after another.
An excellent work culture that promotes positive working environment.

It was a very fruitful experience for me while working with Hennepin County as it gave me some taste of a real world job. I learnt the work ethics and team work to achieve the desired goals. It was fun to work with experienced and knowledgeable people around and learn from them everyday.
Principal IT Specialist (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – May 15, 2017
I was hoping I would be able to make a difference working for the government. There are too many people that don't like change and makes it hard to do anything different especially when it comes to automating work. Also, the IT culture is too restrictive with moving projects in to production.
Would highly recommend that you look else where if you are looking at jobs in Corrections. I am currently an employee at the Hennepin County JDC & have been so for the past year and a half. I am currently job shopping as this is a HORRIBLE place to work.
Some examples include but are not limited to: -Poor pay -Unsafe environment (high resident to staff ratio) -Forced over time -Poor shift patterns -High turnover -Year long probationary period for new employees -Ineffective upper management -Poor Union representation (although they won't mind taking your $$$ on a monthly basis) -Very few opportunities for advancement within the institution or moving outside the institution -Very negative culture
As I said, please look elsewhere for employment. If you become employed here you will regret it 100%! I know I have...
Hennepin County was an exceptional place to work.Everything was alrigh.

Great place to work & amazing team members/management
Public Health Nutritionist (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 9, 2017
Excellent team leadership throughout the program. Management team as a whole are exceptionally great role models. Work life balance is very appreciated. The only negative would be the pay/salary is on the lower end but the health/dental benefits for Hennepin County are great especially if you have a family.
