IT Support Specialist III (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – December 28, 2017
Such an amazing company, not only is it a great place to work but the people you work with are very intelligent and easy to work with. The job does have its hurdles as it is a state government job and with that comes some slight unknowns with budgets and election years.
Supervisor had there favorites look out if your not one

Coworkers were a great group very helpful. Good work pace busy but not overwhelmed unless your supervisor is hanging over your shoulder nagging at you STRESSED OUT NOW!!! Usually easy to get personal time off. Not all Departments/Branches are this way
Social Worker II (Former Employee) – Muscatine, IA – December 13, 2017
I loved the actually work I did for the State of Iowa. My caseload was big and we had little support from managers or higher ups. Hours were long and you never knew when an emergency removal would need to happen.
Criminal History Auditor (Current Employee) – Cedar Falls, IA – November 23, 2017
The current job I have now offers me flexibility - I need to put in 40 hr of work-or scheduled time off- as long as it equals 40 hours. The quality of people I work with are very knowledgeable and willing to work with you to make sure you understand the full extent of your job.
stability of employment, able to see accomplishments of my job
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Rockford, IA – October 4, 2017
Great place to work for temporary employment. I became a substitute teacher to supplement our income. It worked great when there was employment. The schools I worked in were grateful to have a teacher.
Health Facilities Surveyor (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – September 28, 2017
we were responsible to go and make sure that our elderly members were getting taken car of properly. But we went to small towns where there was usually no hotels so you had to travel a ways to get from your hotel to your facility. The days were long, you did not get paid for being away from your home when you stayed in a hotel Monday thru Thursday. 53,000 for being gone from home that much and when you were at home you still spen many hours getting ready for the next week. The hotel reimbursement was around 50.00 a night and it was ver difficult to find a nice or decent one for that little.
Judicial Specialist III (Former Employee) – Mason City, IA – August 26, 2017
Great teamwork at the State of Iowa. The benefits and the ability to balance work and family make it a great place to work. I would have never left the career had we not had to relocate for another job for my husband.
