Pros: it is a state job
Cons: everything! temporary grant, no grievances, no compassion for workers
Worked for Child Care Licensing. Was a dead-end, low- pay job. Upper management did not care about workers, only interested in meeting goals and numbers. Supervisor was horrible- bad mood swings. Being a temporary grant employee, there are no grievances so you could be terminated at any given time- without reason- even if it is as simple as you and immediate supervisor did not get along. Horrible place to work. I'm so glad I'm out of there, should have left sooner. Very clique-ish.
Job duties are not as stated on vacancy notice is inaccurate. The expectations are astronomical and very unattainable. Little to no training. Low- pay for the dangers encountered such as- entering people's homes with/without law enforcement, there is a LOT of travel in subpar State vehicles. The vehicles provided are in very bad shape and there is no interest in management/ supervisor in upgrading within the fleet as long as they get to drive the newer cars.
Immediate supervisor encourage clique-ish behaviors and engage in gossip among co-workers. There is not a system of checks and balances within the agency. There are a lot of unfair, unjust, and bad mangement practices that goes unchecked to clients and workers.
I would not recommend this job to anyone! Maybe another region (County) but definately not the Florence office.
