Volunteer (Former Employee) – Helena, AK – July 14, 2015
There were always great things happening on a daily bases at the company. I learned more about skills I already acquired such as Microsoft Office including Word, PowerPoint and more. My co- workers were very hard working and friendly and the management was great. The hardest part about my job was knowing that it was only temporary because of attendance at an university out-of-state. The most enjoyable part about my job was working in such a place where determination, dedication and drive took place everyday to promote the company and better care for it's consumers.

Workforce Specialist (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – August 8, 2014
Interviewing clients assisting with job placement and life skills assessment. Logging information into system. I learned how to problem solve and teach client to use better decision making. I also learned how to be a self starter and to depend on yourself to complete task. Training is very important to be able to function in this type of environment. The most enjoyable part of employment with this Agency and any other Agency is when the probationer or the client comes and back and express that I was someone that help them through their barrier or after talking with me they feel a lot better and have the faith to keep pressing or trying.

Working for the State is a great thing, especially if you like a relatively stable work environment if you can pass probation without getting your program funding cut and then can excel while program and department management structure changes every few years.
The state struture is all about reacting to funding and trends, which breeds discontent and mediocre effort. Ever get frustrated with State Workers? Probably, because after a while of putting in all your effort with no reward for the success you have, you kind of stop caring.
great benefits, high starting wage
you will never get a raise. no one values state employees.
