Great place to work, shift and winters hours are taxing
MAINTENANCE MECHANIC (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIJuly 21, 2015
Work orders are provided to us at the beginning of our shift. A typical shift consists of filling those work orders and always performing additional preventative maintenance on equipment in accordance to publications. Time management is essential and has been learned over the years with my experience in repairs and maintenance. Co-workers are helpful and always willing to bounce off ideas for fabrication repairs. The hardest part of the job is during the Winter months where at times working 12 hours shifts 7 days a week 3rd shift.

Airport Control Center
Airport Control Center (Current Employee), milwaukee CountyMay 15, 2015
Pros: Airport
Cons: Schedule, morale, helpfulness
This job is not very hard on most days. The shifts and the schedule is the worst part. No 2 days off in a row and some schedule lines have all 3 different shifts ie day, afternoon, and graveyard. Also you have to watch your back with everyone because someone will throw you under the bus. Also if you are working with other staff members be prepared to do most of the work. some members are very lazy

Wl. Correction Officer (Former Employee), Milwaukee CountyApril 29, 2015
Pros: Staff
Cons: prisoners
Excellent place to work and if you are dedicated, you will like it.
Ensuring that jail or prison inmates comply with rules and regulations is a major part of a corrections officer's job. The institution's eyes and ears, corrections officers supervise inmates' daily activities, keep track of their physical location, and monitor their behavior. To gain compliance and build trust, officers must avoid showing even a hint of favoritism. If any rules are violated, the officer must document the incident and report it for follow-up by administrators.

Business Analyst & Project Manager (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIMarch 31, 2015
Disorganized, but they are working on it. There is lots of opportunity to show how much/hard you can work. It's government, so anyone from private sector should temper expectations.

Office Support Assistant II (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIOctober 17, 2014
Pros: discount on items
Cons: finding childcare and the long bus i had to take
working on computer inputting and outputting price list. How the workings of a department store runs. Really had no problem with management or co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the long bus ride and finding childcare at that time. Seeing what new items would be delivered to the store being a shopaholic.

I have some of the best co-workers here. They are dependable and helpful and wish that all jobs had people like them. Hard to describe a typical day here because it all depends on external factors. Usually its spent behind a computer waiting for something to happen.

Playing a key role in my department
Management Assistant/Supervisor (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIJuly 10, 2014
Typical day is making sure I am on 'point' with reports, meetings that I schedule, all details are reviewed for various meetings and functions; all individuals who need to be at certain meetings are actually contacted; liaison with County Executive and County DHHS Director as well as Administrator. Supervise clerical staff.
Hardest part of the job is scheduling multiple meetings within a certain time frame.
Enjoyable part is interacting with our clients and staff.
