Not good
Tax Auditor II (Current Employee), Little Rock, ARJuly 4, 2015
No room for growth here. Not made for someone fresh out of college that's eager to learn. Typical job for someone that is more settled.

Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Shirley, ArkansasJune 15, 2015
Pros: Children are great
Cons: Nothing for the kids to do except go wild.
I like substitute teaching except for the fact that I don't get to interact much with the children. On the other side of that sometimes in this particular setting, there was no instructions left for the kids to fill in the time while their teacher was gone which lead to chaos. Everyone is very friendly in a small school system.

Loved the clients/guests....favorite was working banquets/special events. Proud of our State Park system. Mt. Magazine is definitely top of the charts as best place to visit in Arkansas.

A very good job. Challnging at times Fun at times. Depressing at times
Senior citizen center director (Former Employee), Gassville, AROctober 21, 2014
Pros: enjoying tthe elderly people. they were so much fun. learning from them and helping them
Cons: elderly people can be chidish and selfish, hard to get a long with, seeing elder abuse, and lots of paperwork
This was a very good job. But it could be stressful. It is hard to meet the needs of all elderly people. You could not make them all happy. But, most of them were funny, entertaining and kind. I had to keep track of what was going on in their lives so that I could get the help they needed. I learned how to have a lot of patience.

The work is enjoyable but the environment is distracting.
Production Artist (Current Employee), Little Rock, AROctober 18, 2014
Pros: always learrning
Cons: distracting environment
The work is challenging and can be intense but in a good way. The environment leaves a lot to be desired due to constant interruptions and requirement of management to maintain a task list, which can be distracting when your focus is on your projects, the emphasis on the task list becomes more important than the tasks themselves. The task list is the hardest part of the job, but the projects themselves are challenging and enjoyable.

The work is very challenging and each project is different, which keeps the learning process moving forward.

It's a good place to work
DFA Technician (Current Employee), Little Rock, ARJuly 23, 2014
Pros: we get alot of rewards like pizza party, an hour for lunch and get to home one early before the hoildays
Cons: nether we real busy or real slow no in between.
I work Monday thru Friday 8:00 to 4:30. At 8:00 I check my email to see if any work need be done or do left over work from the day before. At 8:30 I go down stair to do check voucher for payment. I'm back at about 9:30 (depending on how many check we have) to start my scanning for the day. When I finish my scanning and attaching for the day. I see what other assigned duties I need to do. I have learned a lot on my job like Microsoft Outlook 2010, Microsoft Word and navigate though a computer a lot better. Management is a good team and very organize when it come to what they need from you. I get along with all my co- worker, we work as team. The hardest part about the job is staying busy after tax season. We are very busy between January and April and maybe until June. After that we slow down a lot. So we are either real busy or real slow no in between. The best of my job you are left along to do you job. No one is watching over back making sure you doing your job.

State Income Tax (Current Employee), Little Rock, ARMarch 30, 2014
Pros: job security, no lay-offs with individual tax department.
Cons: health care & pay rate comparable to private jobs.
Management gave mixed signals.
Big employee turnaround.
Stressful job duties
Younger Co-workers could use more training on customer service. Seasoned employees had more patience, and compassion with tax payers.
The most enjoyable part of my job was busy from start to end of day. Many different job functions all day long.
