Office Assistant (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 5, 2018
In order for oa's to move up someone has to retire. Or you can just get a college degree. Even though they usually hire from detention first. Raises are given however medical keeps going up.... No raises on performance evaluations.
booking (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 11, 2018
Do not work here, that’s a fair warning. It seems like Bexar County is hiring any civilian off of the street. One female worked came from a daycare with no knowledge of how the jail runs, other new employees can barely type, new employees are flirting with inmates on a daily basis. The way the jail is being run now is a complete joke. My best advice is don’t work at the jail & especially don’t work at the magistrates office, that place is even worse than the jail. You have to be fake & accept that twenty people will talk about you behind your back the moment that you leave the room. No room for advancement. Both places are very micromanaged, not worth the pay. Wonder what’s going to happen when the magistrates office is combined with the jail. For your sake, look the other way.
Non Profit Organization NOT Bexar County Government

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 3, 2018
Very unethical place to work and it makes you think especially since they handle "ELECTIONS" They be-little if you provide feed-back or an idea that would either streamline a process or increase productivity.
hour lunches and two fifteen minute breaks.
Never any room for growth, always talked down to from main boss, no performance reviews ever or raises.
Deputy District Clerk (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 22, 2018
I did not work there very long to be able to provide a worthy evaluation of this workplace during my few months. They were strict on clocking in and out, and gave counseling if you worked too long past 4 pm. Management was hands off but did not seem willing to help to provide guidance on advancements.
Working with difficult students and unsupportive management makes every day a challenge.
Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Various districts in Bexar County – March 8, 2018
I taught for 20 years in various public schools in Bexar County. When the administration was good, the job was good; when it was bad......and it was bad a lot....it was a chore going to work.
As a Special Education teacher, I had the most challenging students. These are students who are not being successful under normal protocols, yet the resistance to doing things in a different way is intractable. Most administrators would rather have the kids fail according to procedures than risk exposure by changing the protocols.
Nonetheless, there is nothing better than working with young people. The energy around them is incredible and addicting.
Pre-Trail Bond Officer (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 10, 2017
I enjoy working for Bexar County because my day goes by fast. I am the Lead Bond Officer on my work shift and upper management looks to me for training new hires. They send me to the jail on certain days the Courts are open because they know I am capable of working by myself in this fast paced and stressful environment. I have been told over and over by my Superiors that I do great work.
Clerk Office (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 12, 2017
Working for Bexar county gives you the impression that you work life should be the only life you have. The County is by who knows who and if your in the in crowd. Not much professionalism happens there. From the Older employees yes but younger generation is very unprofessional and rude. But this behavior is allowed with the County. You are always reminded your easily replaceable.
Hard working and Fun in certain aspects of the company
Computer Operator (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 4, 2017
Monitor and assist users with computer and application related questions. Through training gained a lot of knowledge. Management always on top of their duties and check in from time to time. Very friendly environment. Hardest part of the job was getting through traffic downtown, The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new areas apart from what we do in Computer Operations.
Great training seminars to further your career in the IT field
I wouldn't recommend anyone to work at Bexar County. No good management and the performance is lacking. The communication is poor, I didn't know who was my manager was and it took two weeks for the manager to introduce.
