Customer Service (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO 80112 – January 8, 2019
Great people to work with. The pay is terrible, and not enough to live on in Colorado!! Breaks and lunches can be a chore due to the docket type and Judge or Magistrate's manner. I never worked in the Clerks Office.
Secretary III (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 8, 2017
Progressive court which affords employees to be challenged with new programs. Advancement is encouraged. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was working with the public and making a difference in the community.
Probation Officer (Current Employee) – Colorado – September 19, 2017
I have learned much while working for Colorado Judicial and attend 40+ additional hours of training each year. The workplace culture lacks focus and lack of management in the office creates confusion on a regular basis. The most enjoyable part of the job is having different responsibilities. A typical day at work involves working with different people, writing reports and sharing ideas.
Tech Dept. (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 6, 2017
Lots of gossip and drama. This company packed full of gossip, drama, and lies. If you like these things you will be allowed to thrive. The easiest way to get out of work is to say I never was told the why or just don't do what your manager asks. Lazy, lying, gossips will be appreciated and will enjoy the environment. However, if you save money for the organization and work your butt off you will be lucky to get a thank you. Welcome to the world of government.
Court Judicial Assistant (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – March 26, 2017
Fast paced work environment. It would be an enjoyable job if weren't for the harassment that occurs behind the scenes. Work environment was often hostile. Some of the judges verbally harass and abuse their clerks. Management and Human Resources are unwilling to assist employees that are working in a hostile work environment with judges. Pay was to low for the negative and hostile environment that people are forced to work in. You often do not get breaks including lunch breaks.
Court Judicial Assistant (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – January 28, 2017
Terrible place to work. Working here was the worst by far the worst job I've ever had. If someone is considering working here, it would be out of desperation. The decent benefit would be the PTO and retirement. Find another state job. Everything pretty much is terrible. The pay sucks and the people are even worse. (Both the people that come in and the people working there)
Collections Investigator/Probation Collections (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 28, 2017
I have worked for the 4th Judicial district for over five years including volunteer experience. I would say overall the Judicial community is one of the best places to work. I have gained tremendous amount of knowledge of the law, community, and public programs. I learned many new skills that helped me grow. From my experience in one department I would say that management is absolutely horrible. Managers lack many qualities needed to lead a team. I have experienced 5 or six turnovers in the financial department of management from the time worked in five years. This is to also include the clerk of court and even up to the administrator. The overall workplace culture is very professional. The hardest part of the job that I have experienced is the micromanagement experienced from supervisors/managers. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the public and members of the community. Working with people makes the biggest impact with staying with the courts.
Support Staff/Screener/Assessor (Former Employee) – Alamosa, CO – December 1, 2016
I started as support staff and was promoted to Screen er/Assessor. I liked working for Probation and working with the juveniles. I liked researching their backgrounds and reporting to the Judge within 24 hours my recommendations until they went to trial.
I liked working with juveniles
Was sad when I couldn't locate their parents or guardians and had to put them in detention.
Staff Assistant in Judicial Training (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 1, 2013
I was hired in as a temp and quickly promoted to permanent Secretary/Event Planner when the department head who had been in charge of the Statewide Judicial Conference quit. I was handed the project that was partially done and was able to take charge and finalize it - the way in which I love to work. The management of the Judicial Training Department was great to work with. They respected my abilities and welcomed my input.
Hostile environment due to politics, harrassment and favoritism
Collections Investigator - Retired (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – July 7, 2012
Interview individuals coming out of court from financial affidavits to determine if they qualify for a payment schedule on court ordered assessments based on pre-determined guidelines. Establish payment schedules for those who qualify, enter that information and any personal financial information ( social security number, employer, bank account information ) into judicial case database. Correlate any cases owed in my court with money owed in other jurisdictions. Monitor cases for compliance and inititate enforcement action ( garnishments on income or bank account, property liens, cancellation of driver's license, attachment of state income tax refund) where applicable. My co workers for the most part were exceptionally hard working and professional. The most difficult part of the job was dealing with management politics and blunt favoritism that went on in the last several years of my tenure there. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the public and the good feeling that came from being able to help people successfully complete at least a part of their obligations to the court.
