Commonwealth Magistrate -5th Judicial District (Current Employee) –  Suffolk, VirginiaSeptember 24, 2015
I hold Judicial hearings each shift. I attempt to dispense justice with common sense. It has been an excellent position and working along side my colleagues has been tremendously rewarding. My involvement with the Law Enforcement community has been outstanding. Unfortunately the shift changes every 3 or 4 days a week and leaves little time for family and important dates.

Small office but work with a large court with a demanding work load.
Deputy Clerk (Current Employee) –  Suffolk, VAMay 29, 2013
Work day-in and day-out on large case loadings all while assisting other employees, judges, and customers with questions. Also assist with handling the phones and the front window for transactions from the general public which can vary from submitting documentation to making a payment.

I manage my work load and assist the other clerks with their work. The hardest part of the job is the fact that the job is never done since there is always another case to be entered. Also it can be demanding with the ever changing amount of codes and laws.

I overall enjoy this field of work since related to my studies and I enjoy having the feeling that I assisted others and tried to offer a sense of relieve for them.
Pros
Recognition from others outside of court
Cons
Lack of ability to grow with court
