Program Manager (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – July 26, 2016
Challenging but rewarding. Being given the freedom to develop training and plans was acknowledge by the improvement in organizational functionality. Incorporating the civilian volunteer force into a CERT paid dividends during its activation.
If you are likable and professional. Job security is still at risk. Management will try and corner you and fire you even though the co-workers and management do the same thing. They will make your life miserable for you, to quit if that fell. They will set you up for failure! Once you are pushed out the neighbor, friend, family member of management will take your spot!!! Even when they aren't qualified they will hold the position place family member in train and support then advertise position. Overlooking individuals with decades of experience.
You get paid for the work and you get the work for the pay!

JFS Specialist Case Manager (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – June 23, 2016
Unless you truly need a job in government, run. Managers don't often agree with one another and don't back up their employee. Everyone only looks out for what it takes to keep there job with minimum effort. The environment pushes out good employees and rewards complacent ones. The pays is no where near the level of stress and unprofessionalism one has to deal with.
bad superviors, bad training, lack of knowledge in leadership, constant customer confrentation.
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – June 2, 2016
I am typically in and out of the office throughout the day managing my case load. I perform in-person home visits quarterly and reassessments annually and well as manage my case load via the telephone. I am continually linking my consumers with community resources and advocating on there behalf as well as encouraging them to advocate for themselves. I manage consumer's services and make sure that consumer's community needs are met. I have a wealth of knowledge about all aspects that may confront the elderly population and I am eager to assist in any way I can. I have learned about the elderly population and how to more effectively organize my caseload so that I may maximize my ability to be there for my consumers. Management is supportive and available at all times. It can be challenging at time to get an abundance of enrollments in a short period of time but I enjoy getting to know new people and am thankful I am in a career field where I can help people.
A typical day at work is productive and no trouble. The Management is efficient and my co-workers are all pleasant people. The hardest part of the job is not getting enough hours cause being a library page there is a limit of hours we are allowed to have. The most enjoyable part of the job is the friendly atmosphere and environment.
Program Specialist II (Current Employee) – Rockville, MD – April 27, 2016
Montgomery County Government is a fast paced work place. You learn more than you expect when first hire. The staff and management are fantastic and great to work with. I am relocating due to family and will miss working with management and colleagues.
Center and Youth Program Support Staff (Current Employee) – Silver Spring, MD – January 17, 2016
I love working with the kids and doing a lot of different thing or activities, the front desk is productive but pretty chill. The customers that come in are know us on first name basis as we do with them.
I have learned a lot of my internship. Now, I am able to do initial interview, home visits, school visits, and write reports. All the probation officer in my unit are super nice and passionate about their work. It has been a wonderful experience, I love it.
Bus Operator (Current Employee) – Silver Spring, MD – December 22, 2015
I have been an operator for five years and in the those years i have had some good times but the last two years it has been challange with superviser and safety supervisers the buses we currently have are so outdated the safety of these buses are questionable they what the operators to use outdated buses to transport passangers
I find that the employees run the department and not management. Management doesn't seem overly concerned about non-productive employees. The hardest part of the job is being a productive and efficient worker and watching others not being counseled on their lack of productivity.
