Great place to work
PSA (Manual Laborer) (Current Employee), Miami, FLAugust 27, 2014
Pros: natural environment, employee benefits
Cons: really hot, short breaks, physically demanding at times
Typical day at work would consist of mowing, weed-eating to doing trash pick ups. I've learned how to become a complete employee and how to finish things i've started. Thought hard to communicate at times management is average. The hardest part of the job is the manual labor. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you're maintaining a natural, family friendly environment. Co-worker are friendly and hard-working.

Seaport Security Supervisor II (Current Employee), Port Miami Miami Dade CountyMarch 22, 2014
typical day here at the Port is on weekend ships arrive at 0500, customers begin to leave ships, the processing of them off the ship is U.S custom function we are in charge of ensuring crow control and see that all depart the area in a safety manner. The hardest part of the job is having more personnel to help ensure safety. with to cut backs and not hiring personnel into this department can be a little stressful. the most enjoyable thing of this job is that it a different things happen every day the same thing over and over does not occur on Pot Miami. and the people you work with make it more enjoyable.

Business Analyst I, Financial Analyst I (Former Employee), Doral, FLFebruary 3, 2014
Not much to tell. It is a good place to work, but I was there during the economic crisis and faced numerous times that I would be pushed out of the County not because of work performance but because of union rules favoring seniority over actual productivity.

The MDPD is the largest police department in the Southeastern United States, with approximately 4,700 employees.

Great Organization, Benefits will change in 2014
Clerk I (Current Employee), Miami, FLAugust 25, 2013
Pros: great coworkers, benefits, job security
Cons: moving up, state low budget will remove most current benefits by 2014
County makes work stress free--as possible. Citizens can give you a hard time. I was able to learn a lot of civil procedures for personal knowledge on how the system works. Employees are great, truly care about you. However, moving positions or just moving up, takes way too long. Positions that are open on their portal are rumored to be already taken before interviewing begins---guess that the down side to secure positions.

Procurment Contracting Agent (Former Employee), Miami, FLJuly 17, 2013
Cons: racial discrimination & cultural bias
Typical day consisted micromanagment, total lack of respect by immediate supervisor. I learned to never become comfortable with any position held, constantly was working just to keep my job. That was the worst management I have every experienced in my entire work history. My co-workers were phenominal, there were very supportive in spite of our horrible managers & dept. director.

Great place to work, great co-workers, amazing administration etc. Everyday was something new so I am glad that I got to experience new cultures, languages, foods etc. The only thing I found hard there was pretty much the weather...summer time was scorching!
