Hillsborough County PUD is an "ok" place to work. It provides a guaranteed paycheck every two weeks but other than that, it leaves a lot left to be desired. The compensation for providing "life sustaining" utilities and maintaining the image that the county portrays is very very poor. Entry level even for those with many years in the industry. The gap between management and field personnel for both salary and work load is very large and made known daily. The schedule is set, the overtime is heavily regulated, the micromanaging style of operation and "big brother" type of environment is annoying and makes the job less than enjoyable.
horrible pay, weak leadership, strict aspects that need not to be regulated, take it or leave it attitude by management

Boring, non professional people in management positions/human resources is a joke.
Senior Human Resources Analyst (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – February 27, 2017
Very mediocre people in critical positions doing nothing. Counting the hours to go home. No motivational leadership. Very back stabbing environment. New people with new ideas walked in egg shells so they can keep their jobs. Servicing or lines organizations can care less ...
My shift might have started at an entry point checking people into the various county buildings, walking interior/exterior patrols, responding to an emergency, working a front lobby desk, or watching over the interiors and exteriors of the buildings with video cameras. I had to be mentally and physically able to respond to just about any situation at a moments notice. From this job I learned to read people, deal with people and help people. The people I worked with all had a great sense of humor to help us through the busiest or the slowest of days. We watched each others backs and looked out for the well being of the people coming and going throughout the day. The hardest thing was to not allow something to slip by you when there were people trying to get something in that was not allowed into the county facilities. The best moments were helping people and going the extra mile for them and they get to were they need to go. This department closed January of 2010 and taken over by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office.
I enjoyed working in this department. You had to be at your best.
The County is growing and with that the opportunities are endless to grow and expand with and professional development. Hillsborough County is eager to develop and Mentor future candidates for management expanding their knowledge and presenting opportunities to invest in the future.
Hillsborough county traffic controls (Former Employee) – Tampa, Fl – July 16, 2016
You would be better off to get a position with St Pete or city of Tampa. There are several employees that are the most difficult to work with. Some not all of the senior tech 3 are in need of servants not equal work associates as stated. If you have the ability to understand electronics you will not fit in because you will know more than some that have been there for a decade or more and they will not work well with you. This only applies to some of the tech3 not all.
bennifits, 4 ten hr shifts
several employe are the worst on record to work with
Interesting position, ability to learn and build on career choices
County Recorder (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 13, 2016
Recording offers an opportunity to learn and understand how residential and business properties are made part of the legal system. Co-workers and management are like minded and make the job a pleasant experience. The most enjoyable part of the day is assisting and interacting with people.
