Overall excellent experience and workplace
Administrative Assistant, Fish and Game Tech III (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 9, 2017
The state of Alaska was a great employer. It was varied and the majority of my supervisors were intelligent, fair, and extremely competent. I had served 20 years in the U.S. Army and enjoyed the flexibility and easier work environment that the state provided. The vast majority of my co-workers turned into friends. Even though retired I still stay in touch with a lot of retired and still active state workers. I had a full 20 year career with the state with a defined benefit plan that was and is excellent. I would recommend the State of Alaska to any individual that would be interested in working or living in the state of Alaska.
Typical day. 7.5 hours.
Hardest: Hostile Lawyers, subpoenas, hearing officer contracts.
Most enjoyable: feeding rainbow trout, discussing genetic markers with brilliant scientists and mathematic genius level individuals.
What I learned: The state is a lot easier place to work than the United States Army.
Tough when dealing with hearings involving teacher discipline
