Medical examiner's office
Forensic Medical Investigator (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 23, 2015
This office is very poorly managed, they don't tell you are hired on a trial basis until you move your family to Austin. Then they tell you and begin threatening your job for 3 months and then tell you your not needed. Then your stuck trying to support your family. The staff of investigators are extremely self centered and won't back each other up.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
non existent management, Chief investigator doesn't back her employees

Kitchen Cook (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 4, 2015
I'm a cook at this facility and usually a day goes pretty smooth. I learned how to make food for about 200 people per meal. Your managers are pretty easy to get along and work with, nobody talks down to you and usually they are available to help you out or answer your questions. The hardest part of being a cook there is organizing what you have to do all in your head first before actually cooking. It helps you to be more efficient. The best part is that most of the time it feels like a "cafeteria lady" job when you are serving food to the juveniles. Of course sometimes the kids will act up and cause an incident or an altercation and then you remember where you are, a jail for kids, and the guards have to retrain the instigators.
Pros
free meals, decent pay compared to other jobs, medical insurance, good hours, vacation/sick time
Cons
small team with commensurate work, sometimes understaffed

Had a temp job... thought I was doing great, then was told funds weren't approved... then the very next day the position I was working for was posted on here.... a lot of miscommunication.. I was very confused and rather upset because I enjoyed working there, but apparently I was either "too expensive " or not what they were looking for..
Pros

Cons
distance, miscommunication
