Department of Health & Human Services, Michigan
Eligibility Specialist (Current Employee), Baldwin, MIAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Great benefit package, fabulous people.
Cons: Politics, very few opportunities for growth.
Working for the state of Michigan is pretty black and white....not much room for color. As much as I love structure and order, I'm looking for a position with a little more flexibility and variety. I am a highly organized person that can be very creative. I have a fabulous rapport with people I meet and work with. I've learned a lot over the years of working with others and encouraging the best from others. Each of us have strengths. The least enjoyable part of my current job is the monotony of it....day after day performing the same tasks for the same people. The most enjoyable part of this job is the unpaid rewards I receive from helping someone in need.

Stressful and unorganized
Eligibility Specialist (Current Employee), Macomb, MIAugust 17, 2015
Pros: Job security, 401k match program and work time flexibility
Cons: Overworkded and not given the tools necessary to be truly effective
An Eligibility Specialist for the Department of Health and Human Service is a VERY demanding and stressful position. Our caseloads are oversize--which as caused a very high number of employees going out on medical stress leaves. However, must people going into this line of work because of a genuine need to help people with obtaining life sustaining services. Which I personally pride myself in doing and because of my position, I have been able to apply as well as obtain additional skills i.e.; understanding and interpreting federal and state law regarding policies. An empathy for less fortune families and how societal and social cycle can affect a community as a whole.

JP Morgan Chase, Columbus, OH
Application/software developer (Current Employee), MIAugust 12, 2015
During a typical work week, one of my biggest tasks is checking in on my staff and assessing their progress on various projects. I like to meet first thing on Monday to discuss our priorities for the week, then meet again in the middle of the week to check progress, and meet once at the end of the week to discuss goal setting for the next week. I meet with smaller groups of my staff during the middle of the week to troubleshoot any issues. For example, during a recent mid-week meeting, I noticed one team was a few days behind on a long-term project. I met with the team and, together, we came up with a strategy for increasing efficiency among the team. Along with constant interaction with my team, I also attend a weekly board meeting where I present my department’s progress to the executive board. On Fridays, once all these tasks are completed, I make sure I have completed all necessary communication for the week via email and in person, and create a list of priorities for next week.

Corrections
Corrections Officer (Current Employee), New Haven, MIJuly 31, 2015
Pros: Don't have to punch out for lunch
Cons: Can't leave the facilty for lunch, health care
Most days are uneventful which is a good thing working in a prison. There are days when tense situations arise and I handle them with professionalism. I've learned over the years that communication is key when dealing with people. My co-workers are reliable. The hardest part of the job is trying to communicate effectively when dealing with someone that can't have what they want. The most enjoyable part of the day is when all staff members go home safe.

Childcare Provider (Former Employee), Detroit, MIJuly 7, 2015
Pros: Teaching as well as learning
Cons: Monthly pay
I was a child and adult care provider. The joy of working with young people and teaching them some of the basic skills of life. To watch there faces light up with joy when they got something right. The fact that they enjoyed learning is an experience of it's own.
I also enjoyed working the older people as they teach me the history of life that they can only teach, having lived that life and not something they learned out of a book. The ways of cooking and prices. How they compared it to today's world verses back then. I enjoyed all of my life experiences the good and the bad.
