Fun place to work
PSE III (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJuly 13, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: i cannot think of any
Interviewed clients to determine whether they were eligible for
AHCCCS & food stamps. I learned a lot about computers, fax machines & people. The hardest part of the job is when you have to deny someone that has an enormous hospital bill & the most enjoyable is when you can approve someone with an enormous hospital bill.

Treated Like An Adult
HR Analyst (Current Employee), Phoenix, ArizonaMarch 26, 2014
Pros: autonomy, work/life balance, promote from within, benefits
Cons: not the highest paying, commute into downtown
I have been working for the State for less than two years. In that time, I received a promotion, a pay increase, and recognition from my department. I have a background in the private sector, so my work attitude is to take "ownership" of my job. Management here has really embraced that and given me autonomy in my work, and has included me in many high-impact – more... projects. They value my input and treat me like an adult, rather than micro-manage me (like previous employers I've worked for).

The public sector is not the highest paying industry to work for, there are no crazy bonuses or parties, and some of the offices are outdated, but my work is rewarding and rarely stressful.

Just wish there were more restaurant options for lunch... – less

heartless
Program Services Evaluator (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: state employment benefits
Cons: the management is not as worried about the client as much they are about their numbers.
Some of the people that work there are cold and heartless to the situation of the people applying for assistance. They don't know or understand the hardships that people wanting benefits go through. they don't offer clear instructions or alternate ways of providing needed information causing some applications to denied or delayed. DES penalizes workers – more... that take too much time helping clients because they worry about their numbers that monitor the number of people helped that day. – less

Law Enforcement Job with good benefits
Correctional (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: no breaks, working with children
It is a really great place to work if you want to get your foot in the door to go into law enforcement. Benefits are great but there is little to none room for advancement or pay raises even based on performance.

Becareful applying for the IT level 3. I was hired and treated horribly by this company.
IT Level 3 (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: none i can think of.
Cons: rude employees, and faculty.
I started working there, and from day one I was confronted by the employees, and told how to becareful to not outshine the IT guy there because he likes to be the one to shine. This guy is so rude. Funny how everybody complains about this guy, but yet he still has a job.

If you do not know Epicor, think twice about entering this job, as it involves – more... knowing it, and it is not a user friendly system. While working there I received no training on Epicor depiste asking for it over and over. Also the pay is not what It seems. Not by a long shot.

Good luck!! – less

Enjoyed working for the State of Arizona
Manufactured Housing Inspector (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: working independently
Cons: typical work can become boring
I enjoyed working as a manufactured housing inspector. I wasn't much of a code "policeman" but I enjoyed helping manufactures improve their quality assurance by meeting expected building codes.

In the field you work with manufacturers quality assurance personnel. I found most of them enjoyable to work with.
