Deputy Sheriff (Current Employee) – Bexar County, TX – January 8, 2019
The leadership treat people like garbage, no one listens to what you have to say, the inmates have more rights and protection than the officers. They have all day to ruin your day and it’s what they do, the county won't pay for treatment of disease if you get bit or stabbed and will make you work through it. forced unpredictable 16 hour shifts 1-2 times per week, and will keep you a couple hours after your shift just because they are short staff you’ll be working over 50 hours a week. not able to have a social life. The sheriff will come out on the news and degrade all his deputies because he simply doesn’t care about us. Co workers are lazy and don't even provide restroom breaks. Also good luck getting days off No one cares if you are sick, have family issues, etc... if you’re not one of your superiors favorite good luck You better be there. You'll get written up even with a doctors note. Lots of favoritism. Have fun lol
Election Clerk (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 29, 2018
I enjoy and plan to continue working on Election days for Bexar county, however it isn't consistent enough to make it worth your while. However, it is good work experience and you don't have to follow a schedule.
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.

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.

Decent place to work the staff and workers are great to work with I enjoy coming to work. Everyone works great together as a team with the exception of 1 or 2, however that's at any job nothing is 100%
Some supervisors dont like being assigned at the courthouse and it shows
