Nice job even if ti was for one day

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked during the 2020 election for one day at a local elementary. It was nice as I worked as a student poll worker and got paid $13 an hour. I worked as a greeter mainly and met guests and gave them the materials they needed to vote. The ladies were nice but they didn't know I was supposed to be there that day so I had to introduce myself and send them the email I received. Other than that communication blunder between them it was nice!

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Can be boring

Nepotism and Management are disgusting

Everyone is treated like children. Some supervisors wait at the corner to do a head count. There is always someone bringing snacks in though only missing nap time as the work load is disorganized mismanaged and either is not enough or busy work.

Pros

snacks

Cons

management & administrations

Decent place to work plenty of overtime available

Only good thing available at this job was overtime. Downside was the mandatory forced overtime’s. Managements very poor and will do anything to pin blame anywhere but themselves

Fun and meaningful work

Great place to intern at, especially for those interested in government. The job offered a lot of insight into county government and was very fun along the way

Overwhelming forced overtime

I was very proud to be a Deputy Sheriff and the job was awesome for about 12 years. Commissioners Court eventually screwed us on staffing numbers and we became short-handed. We started having to work two double shifts (two 16+ hour days) a week. That’s forever and it’s not going away. Working close to 60 hours a week takes its toll. I retired as soon as I was eligible. You basically work and sleep and you are so tired that you sleep away your days off. Supervisors are a mix off people you would crawl through fire on broken glass for and others are trash. Overall, the job and benefits are great. You will work with some of the finest people in existence. However, the long hours are not worth the toll it will take on your health and it is a burden on a quality family life. I got out while I was still young and my wife and I are very happy now.

Pros

Awesome benefits and quality staff

Cons

Forced overtime - close to 60 hours a week

Not A Great Place To Work

This place “could” have great potential, but the civilians are EXTREMELY underpaid for the work given, and the morale is EXTREMELY low. Unless you are one to sacrifice character and belittle yourself for the likes of higher authority, you will not be successful here.

Pros

Good schedule (if you’re lucky) and great benefits which is why most stay.

Cons

High lack of maturity

Don’t waste your time

You have to be part of a ‘crew’ and they don’t like outsiders. They will belittle you and instead of helping to improve your skills when needed, they insult you and talk to others about your flaws. Not worth the stress.

Pros

No pros, not even the pay

Cons

The schedule, pay, people working there

Great pay and benefits but micromanagement is way too much

Great place to advance due to the high turnover, pay and benefits are great but the overtime and micromanagement is what kills you. Due to the lack of deputies some lockdown units have civilians (Temporary Jailers)

It is an exciting job with many challenges.

I am proud to have been a civil servant assisting the citizens of Bexar County in their time of need. I did learn something everyday and I always tried to teach it to others.Management failed to support their team of Supervisors, which in turn caused the Supervisors lose trust in management. This hinders the Supervisor's in trying to do their job.

Pros

The job pays well and they have good benefits.

Cons

Gossip within the department. Lack of respect for Supervisors.

Jail

Everything was perfect, until they announced forced overtime. Jail supervisors would show favoritism to their buddies and allow them to go home instead of working overtime like everyone else fix

Pros

Advancement, pay, opportunities to move around, learning, classes always available

Cons

Overtime, forced overtime

Excellent on the job training, I learned natural & COBOL programming languages. Management was helpful and encouraging. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning the new languages and being a part of the Criminal Justice programming team.

Pay scale

Advancement is terrible and time in service is a joke. Policies are not consistent, pay is at a level basis, effort/job performances are overlooked because everyone gets paid the same.

Pros

Stable paycheck

Cons

Payscale
