Run and never look back
Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) –  Black Mountain, NCJanuary 13, 2018
If you get a job here don't expect to move up or to another department.. ever! Everyone talks about each other behind their back and smiles in their faces. Management has no clue as to what's going on in the department and certain supervisors/ workers get worked to death while others can't be bothered. If you have a family don't expect to see them because if your not in the 'in crowd' you'll be stuck on the worst shifts and never get to see them
Pros
Insurance coverage is good
Cons
Too many to list

Head Custodian (Former Employee) –  Salisbury, NCNovember 16, 2017
I did not enjoy the time I had at NCDOC. It was hard. It was stressful. I did not like anyone there. You were told what to do, when to do it, how it was expected to be done and for how long you were expected to participate.
Pros
Get out
Cons
Everywhere

Horrible management & negative environment.
RN (Former Employee) –  Black Mountain, NCOctober 30, 2017
RUNNNN as fast as you can & never look back!!
The work environment is toxic & negative. Just coming through the door makes you depressed!
Floor staff is overworked & underpaid, while management refuses to come help even in a crisis or emergency.
Resident care has declined drastically & the poor people stuck in BMNTC are the ones suffering the most.
There is absolutely NO management. If you aren't in the "cool kids" circle you are disregarded & treated poorly, while others get special treatment.
HR is an absolute joke. Not only are they rude, lazy & unfriendly, but they refuse to help if it requires them to move from behind their desk.
Everything in the facility is outdated from the charting system to the policies.
Benefits are average at best... state benefits now are nothing compared to what they used to be
Pros
Holidays
Cons
Everything else!

Terrible Job and Horrible Management
Investigator (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCOctober 25, 2017
I don't think the division I worked in knows what it wants to be doing or how to do it. Too many chiefs with zero decision making ability, lack of actual job knowledge....
Pros
They do actually pay you, though not much
Cons
Most everything. I hated it.

okay
Park Ranger (Current Employee) –  Sapphire, NCSeptember 24, 2017

Pros
I like the job.
Cons
the hours and law enforcemnt

Terrible arrogant management
Secretary Assistant (Former Employee) –  NCSeptember 8, 2017
All politics. Some people can do whatever they want while others that are not American born but naturalized citizens are treated as unworthy. Nasty discriminatory behavior. Intimidation, harassment, retaliation when you complain. Everything is swept under the rug but when you are "different" you are constantly talked down to underminded and threatened with investigations for unfounded or made up reasons and threatened with written warnings.
Pros
Are there any
Cons
Everything

Great entity to work for as far as mobility
Deputy Clerk (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCAugust 18, 2017
Working for the State of NC involving many different departments so the mobility is very good. The amount of paperwork involved in my position is heavy but several co-workers are placed in different divisions to assist with the process.

Judicial Assistant II (Current Employee) –  Asheville, NCAugust 17, 2017
Greeting the public and attorneys and parties in cases is the standard throughout the day. Lots of questions and requests for information and a big communication hub via telephone, email and in person. High stress enviornment and lots of prioritizing. Have to wear many hats and be comfortable changing tasks at a moments notice. Lots of working alone and working as a team.
Pros
Retirement savings account, good vacation and holiday schedule, offer many types of benefits
Cons
High stress, minimal opportunity to advance

Agent/Investigator (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCAugust 11, 2017
I have always enjoyed working for the state of NC in law enforcement, however it is apparent that there could be more compensation to the law enforcement agents who put their lives on the line for justice for the long hours required to work.

Worked for small 68 bed A&D unit of the state for 2 years
Clinical Director of psychiatric, medical staff (Current Employee) –  Black Mountain, NCAugust 2, 2017
If left to manage and practice with other physicians, the job would have been optimal. A major issue is excessive and, at times, micro management by administrators in central office (Raleigh). Though well-intentioned, this central management style lacked an organic understanding of our hospital's strengths as well as the needs of the community.
Pros
fair salary, health insurance, pension plan
Cons
political management

Probation/Parole Officer II (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJuly 31, 2017
There is job security, however the job is mentally draining and management does not appreciate all of the hard work and effort you do, however if you are fortunate enough to be placed with a good group of people it makes the job easier.
