Unit management administrator (Former Employee), Grafton, OH – February 5, 2013
Pros: excellent benefits and job security
Cons: set pay scale and pay wasn't based on merit
I began working for the state when I was 21 and I was in numerous positions and learned clerical, management and life skills while I was employed. By starting at a young age I was able to retire at the age of 50. The hardest part of the job would be that while working for the government I didn't receive exposure to the workforce in the public sector.
