roadside technician, pop a lock of riverside (Former Employee) – Riverside County, CA – November 6, 2018
Been with them for a little over a year with the promise of timely reviews and raises. Advancement is a joke. They will hire a new guy fresh out of a school with no business or knowledge of locksmithing instead of training willing and able employees. You will be stuck running the scummiest calls for the worst people and companies (looking at you Agero). Expect to break your back changing tires on busted vehicles for not much pay. You will end up hating it in about 3 months. Company provides Scion xBs for work which do very well for the job. They are very old and breakdown at least once a week. You will be blamed for a water pump going out or whatever else is out of your hands. Micro managing is constant but yet you get berated for not taking initiative. If contradiction was a business model, they would have it down 100%.
Pay is on time. Health insurance top notch
Micro management. no advancement. badly maintained vehicles
Various Positions (Former Employee) – Riverside County, CA – November 1, 2018
I worked in the Department of Public Social Services, Executive Office, Health Agency, Hospital and IT. Most roles I had interfaced with other county departments. Each has its' own sub-culture. Department Heads have significant influence on how departments operate.
Multiple opportunities to advance across many areas.
Politics and management skills vary with department and level in the organization.

Volunteer/Intern Counselor (Former Employee) – Temecula, CA – October 27, 2018
When I was with the county I found the work culture in my area to be extremly ....political.....coworkers were always looking into what you were doing and would back up other people if they had been there longer even if they were on the wrong. Very political.

Child Support Caseworker (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – October 8, 2018
Be seated and start work at 7:00 am. Our goal is to work as many cases by locating non custodial parents via employers, serving legal actions, obtaining paternity orders and ultimately gaining child support orders all in a timely matter. Our purpose is for the children to have orders so they can have money coming to support them. We are closely monitored on our stats to make sure we are up on our quotas for all aspects of jobs. Our jobs are numbers for the State. The enjoyable part of the job is knowing that all the hard work you do is for the children and that they receive the money and can enjoy possible a Christmas, A Birthday, new clothes etc. It's a good feeling.

Office Assistant III (Former Employee) – Temecula, CA – September 23, 2018
I worked on a 9/80 schedule with every other Friday off. My typical day would be to multi-task on a variety of duties, depending on how many staff was at work for the day. I could be at reception (front-office) working on answering phones, customer serivce, and doing computer work or I could be in the back office working on live scans (fingerprinting) and assigned clerical duties which included: filling copiers, faxes and printers with paper, assigning vehicles, detailed and confidential computer work according to policies and procedures for the department I worked for.
I learned a lot about how my department works and how difficult it is to give 100% every single day. I was not a Social Worker but I learned how dedicated you have to be to work in this department.
I enjoyed this job because I got along well with my co-workers and we all worked as a team.
Good benefits, job security and friendly co-workers
Eligibility Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Lake Elsinore, CA – September 19, 2018
I was an ESC for 10 years through the TAP program, I was the longest working TAP with DPSS. I know my job as an ESC better than anyone. I trained up coming ET's taught them policy and procedures guided them up to graduation. I am unable to work in my field, which was the job I was the best at due to the hiring of only subsidized employees. I feel their should be a fair balance on this, and allow others to be hired as non subsidized workers. I am highly trained and would be able to take time in training subsidized workers so the ET / ES are not taking their time from their high case loads to train them. It would benefit us all especially our customers. I take pride in them, I'm not their to pay back any subsidized income, I'm their to invest in our customers, and my team.
I am part of helping my community
Not allowing a balance of external applicants to be ESC vs Subsidized people
