I worked for DCFS for 28 years. I had multiple positions and left as a Supervisor. This job is tough. You will always have so much work that you will never feel you can get the job done. I had many years of good managers and then many years with a few narcissistic and arrogant managers that should not have been promoted. HR rotates management regularly or staff promote so you may often end up with managers that are not supportive and don’t have social work degrees. Some offices have racial tensions and/or toxic work environments. I often was treated poorly by others due to my race (Caucasian) and was told to just “put up with it.” I was told at one point by a manager “ that DCFS wasn’t interested in “promoting old white ladies” so I should not get my hopes up. At one training, I was asked about my white privilege and how it impacted me in front of the entire room. I spoke to my manager about what I felt was a hostile work environment and she said she often was bullied by others too and she just “dealt with it.” I felt that it would not be good to pursue the issue further as retaliation in the department is real. You will not be promoted or get the position you want if you get a reputation as a problem staff member. The union is a joke here unless you are a terrible employee; then the union will help you keep your job. This job is pure stress unless you are able to promote to easier jobs within the agency. The employees are always overwhelmed and exhausted due to the large caseloads and push to be perfect in home visits and paperwork. A mistake in this job could mean a - more...
Great pay, great benefits, job stability
High workload, stress, toxic work environment
You need to be a certain ethnic group to fit into the disorganized circus. Constant Tagalog is spoken in front of non speakers. Training is extremely random. Trainees are thrown into projects without explanations. Mostly all the managers are of the certain ethnicity...they DO NOT make you feel included or respected. Lots of favoritism if you’re of that ethnic group otherwise you’re less than and treated that way.
Not bed side nursing
Do you enjoy working at your company?
Help people considering your employer make a good choice.
I learned how to manage time, work under pressure, and how to handle stress. The hardest part of this job was trying to check people in without the system crashing. The most enjoyable part was having people walk out with smiles on their face due to how easy we made their experience.

There is a steep learning curve because the hospital has been code black for months and especially now with the COVID-19 outbreak, you work overtime without pay. Since PPE is a scarcity now, you put yourself at big risk for contracting the infection. Most units are 1:5 ratio unless it is Telemetry (1:4), or a specialty unit. Compensation is the lowest out of any California hospital and they do not offer 1.5x pay for working holidays. Floor training is only 6 weeks and they expect you to know everything by then. Benefits are just okay but it’s not worth it for the amount of work you do
As working as a student election worker, my fellow workers at the polls were very kind and generous, and we all worked through issues together when the new machinery was acting up.There were people who didn't understand how to use the new poll booths, but we all pitched in and helped solve the issue.
Didn't provide any food or water.
Worked on setting up and dismantling voting equipment. As a temp employee most of the temps worked 12 or more hours a day. L.A. Business Personnel on Wilshire Blvd cheated its temp employees out of many hours of overtime and are blaming it on L.A. County HR. This temp agency is a fraudulent company
Bureaucracy. Little room for advancement. At the mercy of where the jobs are located (live in Long Beach and work in Lancaster). No one leaves the County.
Advancement and pay slow and based on years of experience and not talent
Loved working with clients who applied for benefits so many things to learn, great Co Workers, and management. Can be hectic but time passes by. Great benefits medical, retirement and 401K
Great benefits and awesome co workers
I don't recommend being a Bus Operator. The company looks down upon you as the lowest class of workers. There are other positions that pay better for the work they do.
There was a high frequency of management change to accommodate staff seniority amongst the inspectors. This may have negative repercussions amongst staff not employed as inspectors.
Variable work environment, various cultural backgrounds amongst employees, educated staff
Click- ish or mob mentality at some district locations, managerial conflict resolution was self- serving
