Prepare to sacrifice it all!
Emergency Communications Officer II (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 5, 2018
If you value time with family, prepare to sacrifice. If you value you peace of mind, prepare to sacrifice. If you’re looking to work 8 hours day, prepare to sacrifice. If you’re looking for consistency, prepare to sacrifice. That’s what this job is all about. You will miss most things, events, milestones etc working this job. It requires A LOT of your time. The tell you you will work 8 hours and possibly a little more but be prepare to work 16 HOUR SHIFTS 3-4 days a week. I have no idea what kind of quality of life one is supposed to have working like that but no one in upper management cares. Why? Because it doesn’t affect them. There are never enough bodies, compentency levels are at an all time low and no one is a man/woman or their word. Policy.....what’s that??!! They will butter you up to get you in but when the reality of what really goes on hits you, you’ll be wishing you never started. Now is everything about this place bad? Not at all. They will compensate you very well. More than most agencies in the Metro Atlanta area but what good is it, if you’re never able to enjoy it? People have wrecked their cars driving home because of the excessive working hours but hey don’t worry. If you kill yourself driving home, they will definitely find the next person to sit in your place before you’re even in the ground. Stay away from this place at all costs!!
Excessive working hours, management, and everything else
