Assertive management
Intermediate Clerk (Former Employee) –  Torrance, CAJuly 14, 2018
Plenty of hours to go around for over time for nursing and support staff. Management could be more compassionate and less policy and procedure. Patients have more rights then employees.
Pros
Plenty of hours
Cons
Drama like all hospitals

Good retirement package
Treatment Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Carson, CAJuly 9, 2018
The retirement package causes one to loose some coverage that is included when working as an employee. The job itself requires state certification by taking and passing your Grade 1 to Grade 5 State certification. You have three years to pass the Grade 1 certification.
Pros
It is a great career choice.
Cons
It is not for everyone.

Stressful Position
Eligibility Worker (Current Employee) –  El Monte, CAJune 18, 2018
Unfortunately, current management at my office is not efficient. Lack of efficient management is creating a very stressful work environment. Assisting families in need is satisfying but the fact that there is too much pressure from administration makes my job position feel like we are really underpaid.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Bad Administration

Great place to work, but you will need to commit your life to the work.
Children's Social Worker (Current Employee) –  Lakewood, CAJune 12, 2018
If you’re looking to manage people’s lives, this may be the place for you. If you’re looking to impact and changes lives this may not be for you because you will be limited to what you’re able to do for families.

Interesting opportunity that looks GREAT on resumes!
Election Clerk (Former Employee) –  Lancaster, CAJune 10, 2018
The pay isn't the best, and the hours are long, but working as a Los Angeles County election clerk is definitely an intriguing opportunity! The hours can go by really fast or really slow, depending on how many people are around to vote and how willing you are to work with others. One of the most important facets of this job is teamwork, and without it, you'll have a terrible time. Other than that, I always enjoy working at the polls!
Pros
Usually snacks available, non-labor intensive, any age above 16 can apply
Cons
Long hours, occasional mean coworkers

The job may just be a job, but the stability and upwards mobility is a huge plus. Get a job with the county and you're set. The hardest part is that they always have a ton of applicants so good luck!
