I find it an enjoyable working environment! What we do and why we do it is what makes the difference.
Assistant Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 7, 2017
Salt Lake County provides recreational experiences for all members in the community. It's a great organization if you want an opportunity to have an immediate impact on your community. There is an opportunity to grow if this is the career path for you.
HRIS Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 8, 2016
Up side ... Progressive management (in HR at least); truly forward thinking and innovative.
Down side ... Public sector work that is half way out of the terrible issues that come with public sector employment, such as: - hard to get rid of poor performing employees; tend to shuffle them to other departments. - the longer you work there the harder it is to uproot you if you are a poor performing employee.
Comp time (a bit like flexi time): use instead of sick or vacation accruals.
Some bad apples that won't just leave, retire, or die.
GOVERNMENT LIAISON & SALESFORCE ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) – Salt Lake County, UT – July 7, 2016
Salt Lake County is a great place to work. Several different departments to choose from. There is so much that SLCo does for our community that you don't even realize until you work there. A balanced work/life scheduled is highly encouraged and it's a great place for working parents.
Animal Care Specialist (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 24, 2016
I truly enjoy what I do at work and I'm confident in the services we offer to the public and am proud to do what I do. It can be a very challenging job, but on the same token very rewarding! its not all puppies and cuddling, it can be very strenuous.
Court Interpreter (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 17, 2016
Typical day, translate or interpreter for non English speaker verbatim or simultaneously. I learned court terminologies. Management are good I like them. My co works are nice. The hardest part about the job is that I dealt with criminals and killers, rapers , etc.. it scares me sometimes, but they were in handcuffs and foot locks. The part I enjoy the most is that I get to listen and know about their problems and excuses.
electrician (Former Employee) – facilities – December 8, 2015
The best part about this job is the time off. Lots of holidays, vacation time, and sick days. The worse part is the long probation period. You will not make it through probation without the right personality. Hard work and dedication will not help. The work is just typical service type work, but some of the locations are pretty cool.
paid time off, insurance is ok, most co-workers are pretty cool, some work sites are fun
lots of complicated computer aided paperwork, unclear instructions, low pay with no chance of advancement, some work sites are horrible
Technical Support representitive (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 3, 2015
The people at Salt lake County are great to work with. They are very friendly and professional. They are very understanding about needing time off to take care of family issues. My only issue with the county is that they are big time penny pinchers and as a result it is very difficulty to get full-time employment with them.
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – October 17, 2015
It is a fun place to work at and fun co-workers. Most of the job is watching for people that need help and looking for ways to prevent accidents. This means it's a very laid back job. However accidents can happen and you need to be very attentive and not miss anything. Involves first aid and need to be physically fit for swimming.
I signed children and adults up our sports, ran the cash register, rented rooms, sold merchandise. made calls for my managers and answered phone calls
Front Desk (Former Employee) – West Valley City, UT – October 1, 2015
on a daily basis i would either open or close the recreation center. my hardest duty would probably be making sure all the children signed up for activities were in the right age group, and on the right sports team. my favorite part about the job was that i was able to interact with many different people, as well as have down time to read a book if we were having a slow day.
i could bring any food i wanted with me and i was able to read ever now and again.
sometimes the computers would stop working and everything had to be done by hand.
Relatively low-stress environment, great co-workers and excellent management.
Receptionist/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Magna, UT – September 7, 2015
The day would start out either opening store or switching tills with a co-worker depending on the shift. Job tasks included cash handling, customer service, entering membership information and making/answering calls.
I learned customer service, time management and organization skills. As well as telephone etiquette, team building, and training skills.
The best management I have ever experienced at any company. The office manager did her job extremely well, maintained a positive attitude and she was genuine about helping her employees and customers.
The hardest part of the job was maintaining energetic attitude during the slow periods between customers.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the positive work culture and good co-workers and management.
Great working environment, simple job tasks, fairly flexible schedule.
No problem having incentives to stay on the job, feel appreciated.
Custodian/Maintenance (Current Employee) – Magna-Kennecott Senior Center, Magna UT. – April 26, 2015
On a typical day I work alone to a certain extent and I like that because I can concentrate on the tasks. I have learned how to keep the environment safe and friendly for people who come to participate in activities. I get along well with my co workers and can trust them to help me with my goals. The hardest part of my current position is being expected to do my own evaluations. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the people (workers and visitors) enjoy the clean and safe building and hearing their positive comments.
Urban Planner (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 6, 2014
Massive management issues and massive spending waste. Salt Lake County is as political as it gets for a workplace. Many toxic work divisions with incompetent management that truly has a clear lack of values and ethics. If you work there you better have a very thick skin.
If you are a manager you're in the club of untouchable
People dont care about how hard you work, they are out for themselves. Sad truth.
