This was a seasonal position for the local government authority
Assessment Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chesterfield, VAJuly 3, 2018
At the time of hire it was acknowledged that this position would only be needed for the "busy" tax season. There was a huge volume of work as many residents took advantage of the discounted tax relief for real estate property taxes.
Pros
Helping those in need
Cons
Short term employment 25000

Principal Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Chesterfield, VA 23832May 2, 2018
The older women like to gossip more then the younger crowd being hired. Nothing good was ever said about the younger ppl getting work done. Many mistakes by the older folk would not be taken seriously.

You must follow government rules and politics. No room for individuality or opinions. You are a robot. At will employment that can be terminated at any time per decision of managers without notice.
