Wonderful work environment which taught me a lot about the IT field
IT Intern (Former Employee) – Redwood City, CA – December 16, 2018
During my time at San Mateo County, I worked in the IT department as an intern, helping with duties and projects underway at the time as well as working on my own projects. I learned a lot and had a great experience thanks to the friendly environment.
CA (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – December 13, 2018
Overall, growth and development was gained, but one would have to seek out these opportunities and know who to reach out to for in order to succeed in your role. Due to lack of resources (including staff) and funding, projects and programs were unable to fully thrive. Roles and duties were simplified, preventing staff to develop and grow, as mentioned, unless one knew what proper channels to go through. Environment and interaction with the community was mostly positive and rewarding as well as being a steward of the environment and community. Based on supervision, one may have the benefit of added responsibility and opportunity for movement, decision making, and influence within the organization.
Fiscal Office Specialist (Former Employee) – Belmont, CA – November 5, 2018
if you are looking for stable job and great benefits, this is the place to work San Mateo County offers great retirement plan and health insurance. The job loading depends on which departments you stay, but, you can get overtime compensation if you need to work overtime.
Great benefits, stable job, nice working environment
Family Child Care Specialist II (Former Employee) – 271 92nd St, Daly City, CA 94015 – September 4, 2018
In my opinion, working for the County of San Mateo Human Services Agency as a Family Child Care Specialist II, it was excellent. Coworkers are respectful. The supervisor is excellent. A typical day at the office was getting ready for another day, and to make sure families providers should get pay on time.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – July 25, 2018
Work was disorganized and everything seemed rushed, a lot of the work was offloaded to those who were more capable. Sadly those who did more work were not compensated for the amount that they put in, no incentive to work harder.
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – June 14, 2018
Worse managers at the main pharmacy. So unprofessional and childish like behavior. Favoritism among employees and lack of communication among managers. Fake personalities and some have major psychological issues.
Correctional Officer (Current Employee) – San Mateo County, CA – May 1, 2018
Staff shortages have made it difficult and lack of advancement for the Correctional Rank. As a CO you work side by side Deputy Sheriff's but you are not offered presumptive coverages. With the cost of living in San Mateo County, the pay is not sufficient for most. Many staffers are commuters. Todays traffic in the Bay Area make it a challenging proposition. Take that and the staff shortages across the nation and the mandatory overtime with no sufficient medical coverage upon retiring. You have to consider your options and taking your experience elsewhere more affordable and rewarding.
Working for the county was a rewarding and full place to work.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – April 25, 2018
Working for the county was a rewarding and full place to work. A great many of the employees are professional and hardworking. Management was supportive and helpful with training. I liked that the department would hold people accountable for lack of follow through and poor work-ethic.
Good pay and get benefits like medical and pension plan.
It is very difficult to promote into high level leadership positions, there are so few opportunities compared to the line staff positions.
