At least 50 hours per week. The hours on the job posting say 8-4:30. That’s almost never true. You have to schedule in-home meetings with families at times when they can all be at home (usually after 5pm or later). Foster care workers also have to supervisor visits bw parents and children after school/ work hours. Most workers have 25+ cases on their workloads. Many have over 40 cases. It’s impossible to work 40 hours per week in their job.

It depends what department your working. I've worked in a area where you are on call from time to time and not compensated for at least being on call with comp time, etc.

Report answer

8-4:30... Monday thru Friday. Some worker in the Central office work 7-3:30. Your off all major holidays. The work schedule to me is not bad but the stress in the county offices is horrific. Central office is much more laid back. It's more so the administrative area of DHS and houses the director. I've worked County and Central office.
