Great place to work. We worked 9am-5pm. I learned a great deal about mental health and motivational interviewing. The work place culture was pleasant and everyone worked together. I enjoyed working with the clients and providing encouragement to facilitate treatment adherence.

Great culture at Arlington County. The county pays a fair wage, has great retirement benefits(401K and a pension plan) and cares for their employees.

Apply when openings are available and when you are in learn as much as you can. They will train you in many fields from customer services to parks and leisure.

The work environment is very friendly and fun between coworkers. Most get their work done. No place for advancement, only offer part time positions, and the higher ups don't care about their employees. Only some facility managers and assistant managers care about their staff. Some staff are incompetent and other staff get their jobs done accordingly.

Most of the jobs are in the correctional division, so there is little room for growth. Due to the schedule there are opportunities for overtime. Working the night shift gives ample opportunity to complete school work.

Arlington County DHS, however, is a department within the County stucture that truly cares for both it's constituents and it's employees. It works proactively toward process, product and program improvement.

Management couldn't do better with communication. Some people there will do anything to get a head. The cultural there is messed up there. You can get fired for smoking in a vehicle before you get fired for not doing any work.

Overall OK employer. Discrimination is present but keep in mind discrimination is no absent in any department. Supervisors have been given lots of powers over line staff which make them to abuse all authorities.

depends. Depends on department. Many still don't have a telework option alleging that the position cannot telework.

Anyone that does not work in on the street should have a telework option.

I really enjoyed my time with Arlington. Other than not having the ability to advance in my career due to being a smaller county, overall, I would say I was treated fairly, and people are generally kind to one another.
I was able to flex my hours to meet the needs of my family while also meeting the program needs. My manager was amazing - she was the reason it was so hard to leave. She really set the bar high for my future managers.
Pros
flexability
Cons
lack of advancement

Great people to work with. Great workplace culture. The hardest part of the job is going home for the day. The most enjoyable part of the job is the relationship development.

Working as an attendant was not an easy job in the slightest. It consisted mostly of moving heavy equipment, setting up areas for large events, concessions, balloon animals, face painting, keeping children from getting hurt, managing fellow employees and sometimes more. I learned discipline in work ethic and patience with people especially children. The hardest part of the job was setting up large areas for massive amounts of people and to be honest the most enjoyable was making balloon animals.

I'm currently just about to start the academy. It's already a grind and very tough on your mental well being. The hours for the academy are 5:45-4pm and it is out by Dulles airport. It is only 4 days a week though.
