this job is a great place to work with great benefits they are not so good with communication so if you want to try to move up in the company you either have to know someone or get lucky. it took them a year to get back to me about a job they were hiring for i was waiting around for them to interview me.
Social Worker Assistant (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – October 15, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. There was a lot of variety in their job assignments. The most enjoyable part about this company they respect each applicant, very diversified. They are very professional. Served people in all walks of life with compassion.
flexible and balance
well balance flexible I believe in following company policies
Working with the public to help our community and neighborhoods to look bigger and brighter. Worked many different roles, at my desk I was more like an Invoice Operator while working the front desk. the CSR helps the general public as well a all contractors.
Room for advancement
One mistake from one indiviual can cause a ripple effect.
A good balance between work and personal life, decent benefits, but terrible management and job culture. You have to choose what is more important to you, a career or free time. If you do not care about career advancement this is a great place for you. You get a lot of freedom when issues come up in your personal life.
Management is often promoted based on who they know, not on qualifications. There is a common culture of doing the minimum amount of work possible to meet one's job requirements. Hard work is not encouraged and the best talent typically leaves after a few short years.
Administrative Support Assistant III (Current Employee) – charlotte NC – August 6, 2014
I've been with the counrty for 7 years and I have seen programs come and go along with staff coming and going. I'm not happy in this position because there is no growth and no training opportunities for plus some higher ups walk all over you like a door mat. The work load can depend on the program or department you work in...
Administrative Support Assistant III (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – May 30, 2014
A typical day in my department would start at 9 am and we would run reports and work to be processed, distribute work among co-workers, check with manager for and new information or special instructions and make sure all of todays work was updated and processed in the various computer systems.
While working with this agency I became more aware of abused and neglected children and came in contact with all kinds of people in all walks of life. I have a better understanding of abuse and neglect more compassion for children. I am an advocate for children.
Management was usually laid back and easy going very helpful but very serious and my co-workers were easy to get along with and seemed to enjoy their work, always willing to help another team member. I liked working with this agency, I liked my co-workers and supervisors and would consider working for this company again if I lived in the area.
The hardest part of my job was keying information into the system that revealed the agency was not able to save a child or a child fell through the cracks within the system, and the most enjoyable thing was when the agency saved a child or I meet a child in the office that defeated almost impossible odds.
county discounts to various things within the county
• Assist students with reading and other assignments, and with group activities. • Assist lead teacher by checking homework in various subjects and with student activities and general classroom duties.
i love reading and doing group activities with the children.
Office Assistant II (Former Employee) – Charlotte – March 11, 2014
A typical day started with cheking the gas companies information submit and had to be reported inputted and filed daily. Smoke and choke was done depending on complaints filed. Collecting and submitting a rep to go out on an Air Quality complaint. Once a month meeting with the county, consumer and management concerning complaints filed for the month. Working clos with staff that reported and requested information from me.
good working staff and environment
some days were hective and short staff if they were out on calls.
I looked forward to a day of the unknown factors. In dealing wit individuals that are going through substance abuse and mental health situations you never know what you are walking into but your duty is to help these individuals in their struggle. If a situation is to occur and there is a positive team involved and everyone is on the same page positive things happen and everyone gains as there are no negative outcomes. Some of the most difficult things involved in the job are that you must come to accept that some people aren't there for the right reasons and they may very well walk out and not ever return.
Fiscal Support Assistant II (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – September 26, 2013
Great benefits and place to work!! Some co workers are better then others but you learn to deal and adapt to the situations. The hardest part of the job is dealing with angry customers. The best part of the job is leaving at the end of the day.
The management team was very focused on meeting federal goals and becoming revenue neutral, which for a government agency is very hard to accomplish. We had to take a failing state agency and transform it into a successful county agency. After 3 years of intense change management activities and financial improvements each and every year, a federal performance goal was finally accomplished.
free coffee for the employees, very reward oriented for good performance
extremely high customer volume (highest in the state), very stressful environment
