Fast-pace secure environment with growing pains
Communications Supervisor (COII) (Current Employee) – Henderson, NV 89015 – September 23, 2017
My current work environment is fast paced and extremely dynamic in nature. During my tenure with this department, I have learned a great deal about the importance of investing in the people who work for and with you.
The hardest part of this job is dedicating myself on a daily basis to focus solely on the tremendous responsibility we have to the citizens of our community. We are their first and most impactful point of contact in a crisis situation and we set the tone for the field personnel on the scene. If we do not do our jobs properly we put everyone at risk, the citizens in crisis and our emergency services personnel who come to their assistance.
It is easy to get distracted by the politics of public service work. It is also easy to become discouraged by the tedious process of implementing positive change. However, the cost of complacency
in our field is far too costly to allow these obstacles to dissuade us from our purpose.
The most enjoyable part of my job by far is the tremendous opportunity I have to participate in the growth and development of the people I work with on a daily basis. As a first line supervisor, I get the chance to assist many dedicated, hard-working self-sacrificing emergency services professionals reach their goals on a personal one on one level.
I am proud to work with these talented men and women and hope that in some small way I have been able to contribute to their professional growth during my time here with this organization.
excellent benefit package and salary
consistent short staffing and lack of effective communication and collaboration
