SEAL Coordinator (Current Employee) – Livingston, TX – July 30, 2018
You get to meet and help many new people daily. The coworkers are super helpful and work together very well. You are treated like family. Each person respects the other positions. Each coworker is very knowledgable. The hardest part of the job is leaving at the end of temporary assignment.
Be Careful everyone else has warned you about this place
Project Accountant (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – April 24, 2018
Read the other reviews for this location and other locations as well. The case managers and other reviews are entirely correct.The management is very difficult to deal with. 6 accountants have come on and gone. Beware!
Communications Coordinator (Former Employee) – Dynamic Works Institute – January 30, 2018
It is stated that good employees don't leave good companies, they leave bad management. This is certainly true in this case. There are no options for advancement, no raises, and the company doesn't seem to be concerned that employees that voice these matters, are leaving. My assumption is that they are happy to hire others at a lower rate. I have watched far too many great employees that could add great value to the company be forced to leave, or eliminated because their voices are not heard. It is very sad as this is a company that wants to help people, at least on the surface, however the bottom line is that the top management and owners are more concerned with making a bundle for themselves rather than treating their employees better, and helping their clients.
virtual office for some positions
No Advancement opportunities, and absolutley no raises.

Overall, I don't have anything negative to say about DWFS. They just accepted a terribly ran contract. The local area board is too disengaged, to realize the system is damaged. There is one common denominator in all of the confusion. Just time for change.
Center Manager (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – November 15, 2017
Management is only concerned with their advancement, will step on anyone in their way, and have explosive outbursts. Management fire individuals without any type of notice (e.g. tell you and ask you to leave 15 minutes later). There is a high turnover rate with staff as a result of the poor leadership skills of management. Staff fear taking leadership opportunities (Center Manager), because they feel that is the position where people go to end their careers. They feel this way, because if a Center Manager challenges the leadership in any way, they are immediately fired. There have been 3 Center Managers fired since August of this year (less than 3 months); there are only a total of 3 Center Manager positions which are available. EEO would have a field day with the leadership. Mileage reimbursements are not paid in a timely manner. If you can avoid working here, please do so. If you have no other option available, good luck.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – November 4, 2017
Great job!! Great Employer! We are all one big family! You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.”
Advisor (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – September 28, 2017
Wounderstand not recommended DWSET. Very poor management. Very unfair management. Not appreciated for work done. Does not value employees. managements out look is will just hire somebody else. Very poor training. Worst training ever had at a job. You pretty much train yourself with out dated training manuals.
Upon being hired I was given a job description that was deceptive. Once I begin working in my position I begin to realize that the job description I was provided was only a little piece of the puzzle. My training was rushed, insufficient, and the majority of my training was cancelled. Management (Office Manager and Sector Leads) at the Blairstone location shows no support for the Talent Acquisition Specialist or any employees working the floor. They jump from office to office laughing, gossiping and being very unprofessional. My second week on the job my colleagues in my position (TAS) begin to inform me on how horrible the job and management was.I was rushed to start seeing career seekers and did not have a clue of what I was doing because of the inadequate training I received. When I initially got hired here I thought it was an awesome place to work but it turned out to be an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE. The employees here are overworked, underpaid, and everyone is miserable EXCEPT for management. I am so grateful I left when I did and I have absolutely no Regrets.
Independent working culture with limited managerial suppport
Youth Career Navigator (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – February 2, 2017
DWFS allows you the space to work independently, but falls short in its training and support of its workers. Management does not respond appropriately to employee concerns or address them in a significant manner, but consistently requires superior performance from its employees.
Accountant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 11, 2016
The management of this company is outstanding. Even though they were in another state, I could always count on them answering all my questions and concerns. They were very people oriented and strived for excellence in accounting principles. I really enjoyed working for this subcontractor for the Texas Workforce.
Business Service Support Specialist (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 10, 2015
Fun and great place to work at with great supportive management and staff. Enjoyed talking to employers when they were in dire need of job seekers for their positions. Enjoyed helping setting up Job Fair events at all 5 workforce centers.
Auditor/Quality Control (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 28, 2015
The company is a great company to work for. OJT is always practiced. Management is fair and they strongly support work/life balance. The company has locations in other states and strongly support career advancement.
