Typical County Government - SLCO
Urban Planner (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTDecember 6, 2014
Pros: if you are a manager you're in the club of untouchable
Cons: people dont care about how hard you work, they are out for themselves. sad truth.
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.

Didn't like working there
Head Guard (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTMay 14, 2013
Pros: they are desperate to higher anyone with a certification.
Cons: management creates a hostile working environment and offer no support.
All of the management has this group of friends, that doesn't get anything done. It really makes everyone else suffer, because there is no communication. You can expect private rentals that show up randomly, not knowing when to work, no job training, minimal supervision, and a lot of dissatisfied customers. The Sorenson Multicultural Center has really hit rock bottom.

Feels like living in an enemy zone.
Office Specialist and screening data coordinator (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTApril 23, 2013
Pros: very nice co-workers
Cons: the office lead by groups and friends.
It doesn't matter if your work hard or not as long as you are in their group you are good.

I worked there for more than a few years and it has really changed. It has never really been that good of a place to work at, but now it was unbearable. The management has really dropped the ball. They have formed a group of friends that get nothing done. On top of that they don't communicate with any of the employees. Image a large group of people have rented out the pool, and no one in the building knows anything about it. These aren't just isolated events, but common occurrences. I didn't even know when to work, because the schedule wouldn't be posted. I wouldn't recommend working there or using any of there services. There are many other facilities in salt lake county that are a lot better.

A day at SLC
Janitor (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 25, 2012
Pros: fun do to
Cons: had to clean up some gross stuff
A typical day at work was getting right to work and cleaning what i was assigned. What i learned was how to clean things safely. My management was amazing they were always kind and hard working. The hardest part of my job was some of the customers complaining when i could not get to the room they wanted to clean when i was cleaning in another room. What i enjoyed was making they customers happy.
