Court Program Specialist (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – May 19, 2017
Great environment, the people are very friendly. The work is stable for the most part since it is government work. However, there is very little opportunity for advancement unless someone retires, or passes away. The pay is miserable to put it bluntly. There are no incentives, raises, bonuses etc. The government sector seems to think that they don't have to compete with the private sector in terms of compensation. One selling point is good health insurance, however, you can find this in the private sector if you search (and also will get paid much more). It's really a shame because I really do like the job otherwise.
I enjoyed working with everyone. My supervisors encouraged me by allowing me to cross train in other areas in order to be better prepared for advancement when the opportunities were available to do so. My coworkers were always willing to help with my training process.
I enjoyed my job and position until new management came in,, They didnt care about moral, only numbers you could be on your death bed and they denied DR appts, etc I swear I dont miss that place..my stress level hasr gone down my health is improving I t hank god daily Im no longer there Jacksonville Call Center
Environmental Specialist (Former Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – February 8, 2017
I worked with environmental health for 13 months, it was the best place i have worked. There was never any conflict and everyone worked as a team. The work load was never more than you could handle. You got to get out of the office at least three to four days a week.
ESSS 1 (Current Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – February 1, 2017
DCF has a great reputation, but the actual job as an ESSS 1, is not what they tell you. It is alot of work that is unmanageable and if you are not a fast worker you will not have a piece of mind. You are given cases and you must complete a certain amount of work per day, the work requirement/ goals is not manageable. Its definitely not about helping families, its about getting the work done. You don't have time to be compassionate because you are responsible for so many tasks, its not about quality its quantity and that is stressful. Good luck to all who decide to apply, read the fine print. You get to work from home but if your work load is not complete you will end up back in the office.
