Horrible Place to work! Unethical management! Dead end job! Waste of time!

No work ,waste of time. No Learning or growing !Unethical management! Benfits are now giving are less than your co workers which are newer plans with less benefits , pay is not worth the time you put in. unethical work practices and a corrupt organization. where our tax monies are being wasted


No pros to mention


They dont offer same benifits as older employees. Unfair, Unethical

Wonderful place to work for most of my life. I have nothing bad to say

Compton district 26 was one of the most greatest place to grow and be a part of for 25 years. Our district directoris the best ever. If I could do it all over again I would.


Great benefits and opportunity to grow within the company

Slow Advancement

While there are a lot of benefits provided to those who work for the County, it is very competitive and limited opportunities to advance. Lots of nepotism.

A secured job

It is a good place to work for. You are always notified of new transfer positions if you don't like what you are doing. They offer the best benefits package you can have. The pay is not the best though.

I was only a minority American, I felt lonely most time.

Job environment was very busy, and stressful. I can say I need more English skills, and computers at that time. I had to park in the parking structures on 3rd floors, and I had to walk 20 minutes to get to the work. It was not worthy to continue to work there with only minimum pay.


I am an organized person, I enjoyed filing.


Short break time, no benefits. So just quit.

It's okay

Very unorganized. The medical director doesn't really listen to what employees have to say. We don't have a set place for his to reside on and doesn't want us to work from home

Workplace not what it was made out to seem

At the interview the job sounds great, sounds like exactly what I was looking for . When it was time for me to start and I did so I was under the impression that I’d switch into the schedule after training but apparently that wasn’t the agreement and they couldn’t adjust my time 30 to prevent me being late after all adjustment I made to accommodate them

Nepotism and Potlucks

Promoting depends upon who you know and are willing to stab in the back. Micromanagement to the tenth power. But you will get paid just enough to not qualify for low income housing. Good potlucks though.

A learning experience

What is the best part of working at the company?To be able to say I was a County Worker What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The training was terrible. They stuck me with the top of top, best of the best workers who had 20 plus years on me, and expected me to be like them in 4 months, without a lick of English in their vocabulary, because of that they could never move forward in their career What is the work environment and culture like at the company?One had to feel like walking on egg shells all the time as the new guyWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?Hard, sweaty, and not worth the pay for what I did with the best of the best

I never want to go back.

What is the best part of working at the company?The pay. I went to the job for a salary raise and the benefits are good. Pay raises occur annually until you max out.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The people. It’s a bunch of egos and drama. People are dishonest and controlling and titles decide what gets done, not who has the best idea.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?It depends on the team. Some are quite nice and others are dysfunctional.What is a typical day like for you at the company?I was either underworked or overworked. You rarely have balance, and management is overly beholden to the Board of Supervisors, grants, and entrenched staff

Stressful caseload

High caseloads little support. As a social worker you are expected to manage every minor detail for the children, parents, foster parents, court, etc. high #turnover

Great benefits/horrible work-life balance

Depending on the Department, you can often end up working well over 10 hours a day. Management rarely seemed to care about employees’ work/life balance. Advancement often depended on office politics.




Advancement and moving around

Easy job, very good for high school students looking to make some extra money during election season. Just had to attend a training about a month beforehand.

No Complaints

Love my job. My boss is great, benefits are great, no complaints whatsoever. My employer made it easy for me to balance my work and home life when my kids were younger. I appreciate that. ❤️

Great experience

Experience is great and definitely opportunities for growth. Management doesnt provide good support to employees but there are some good supervisors who are understanding. Pay could be better.

With everything I know now I feel you need discernment and focus to work in this kind of environment.

What is the best part of working at the company?Benefits are great but theirs a lot of propaganda that exists so be careful sometimes the benefits are not worth the stress.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Lots of unprofessionalism among the staff dealing with other colleagues and the public. Management not working and following guidelines lots of favortism.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Hostile, abusive , profanity being used on a regular basis with colleagues. Work is not of essence gossip and other malicious tactics are more important than serving the community.

County is a Great Place to work and transfer to different areas in the County. The only draw back with the County is they work you until your fingers fall off. If you know the right people- you get promoted quickly. I am speaking for myself - maybe someone else has had a different perspective. I have worked for the County for 38 years. For me, nothing has changed.


Learn different departments


It’s not what you know - but whom.
