Lifeguard Watermine (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – August 2, 2017
It was a nice summer job between semesters. Of course it was not really going to progress anywhere, but for what it was it was great. Sometimes customers were cruddy but the management was never a pain.
Human Service Specialist II (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – August 22, 2018
Fairfax County is a lovely place for someone to work who is interested in benefits and working in front of a computer all day. I am more a creative visual person, therefore this type of work is not ideal for me. I also do not believe the compensation is fair for my background.

Social Services Specialist III (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – April 19, 2018
I was comfortable and enjoyed the job duties, Hated the job insecurity and lack of management support. From the minute you are offered the position , you really dont have time to learn the job correctly because you have to focus on all the mandatory trainings.
A positive work environmental with opportunity for advancement.

Spanish Interpreter (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – March 7, 2018
I enjoy working with the Fairfax County Court system because it is a good place to learn a lot about different languages and cultures. I learned about different countries where people speak Spanish. For example, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru.
HR Manager (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – February 20, 2018
Fairfax County Government is an excellent organization to work for. It is going through a major transition as it increasingly finds itself needing to compete with other competitors in the workplace, but the opportunities to grow and move to other parts of the organization are many and varied.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – January 16, 2018
Learning environment and working environment with plenty opportunities for advancement. I've mastered time management working here and my patience and warmth for the elderly has grown tremendously which I didn't think it could since I was already passionate about them. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to learn and ask my co-workers for assistance when needed.
