Master Corrections Officer (Current Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – April 18, 2019
I really like my job. But this job isn't for everybody. I liked the fact that you never know what the day will bring. These are convicted felons and we do have state and county convicts. The pay is ok and the county is trying to make up for the lost wages of the recession with the recent raises. A baseline officer with a degree can top out at about 62k you just gotta stay the course and put your time in and learn the job.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Dacula, GA – April 15, 2019
This position was always changing and each day brought new challenges. I enjoyed teaching the students and the staff was wonderful to work with. The most difficult part of the job was coming into a classroom that I was not familiar with and making the transition smooth for the students.
Legal Assistant II (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – April 9, 2019
This could be a great job for the right individual, however, it was not a good fit for me. Th atmosphere was to political in nature and individuals advanced because they were liked, not because of there skills.
Very good place to work with a few minor exceptions
Warehouse Technician II (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – April 2, 2019
Job titles and job duties are broken down very well. A lot of job perks from the county are taken for granted. Most employees work hard all the time and a few work as little as possible. Many fellow employees are very good spirited and the mood typically stays light. Most management very good to fellow employees and do not hold grudges. The best part of the job for me was both the people I met while there as well as the many types of equipment that we were able to utilize to complete our work daily. Thank you Gwinnett County!!!
Wide range of characters that were coworkers, pretty laid back 90% of time and a large variety of equipment that was utilized
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Gwinnett County, GA – February 17, 2019
Upper management is extremely irresponsible. Care more about things getting out to the public than their employees being taken care of. Good pay and for the most part good people. But one bad person can ruin it for everyone..
Deputy Clerk (Current Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – January 31, 2019
Good place to work. Management is great and there's stability in the job. The atmosphere is how you make it. There will always be drama or someone you do not get a long with, but it is nothing major. I wish they paid more. You cannot live on the salary that they give you.
PARKS & RECREATION CREW MEMBER (Former Employee) – Buford, GA – January 28, 2019
It was a good stepping stone job. It was not easy during the summer/fall bc of all the wasps out near the trash cans but other than that, it was a really flexible job & I loved it. I was able to do almost anything I wanted as long as I got certain tasks done.
Substitute Teacher / Student Teacher (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – January 14, 2019
Gwinnett County is a wonderful school system. The school system offers quite a number educational programs to enrich students lives. The school system goes above and beyond to prompt and push for higher learning education. I realized that I was not cut out to be a teacher.
Wonderful learning environment, great teaching opportunities, safe environment for the students
Dealing with students who needed a little bit more than just a timeout
Lifeguard and Swim Instructor (Current Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – November 12, 2018
A typical day at work would be sitting in a hot environment. I've learned you can have fun outside of work with your coworkers but at work it is serious time. Management was okay but could've been better. The hardest part of my job would have to be dealing with angry patrons that get in your face because they want to. The most enjoyable part of my job is talking and joking with my coworkers.
Sometimes hour off stand(in real world it's a break but you are still on the clock)

teacher (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – October 25, 2018
Gwinnett County Public Schools is a great place to work. I loved being around the children, but as a single mother with three children of my own I felt I needed to make a career change to ensure my parenting would set them up for success. I have learned how to be honest and follow your heart. The hardest part of the job was not believing 100% I was not making a difference in my students lives. I enjoy helping people and that is the career change I am willing to make.
ENTERPRISE ADMINISTRATOR (Current Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – October 24, 2018
Great benefits and good work environment, wonderful co-workers and not very stressful, however there is very little room of advancement. Its not what you know but who you know. Work culture is based on fear. Employees spend more time covering their rears than actually completing projects. C.Y.A. is the code of the land.
Great benefits and good work environment
No room for advancement. Management creates a culture of fear.
Tech 11 (Current Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – October 6, 2018
descent job,good benefits,average magmentA great working environment for those who don't have any direct dealings with the CEO (Jonathan Austin) or have any great desire to progress. It's a great company for people who are looking for a good work-life balance, enjoy being in an upbeat and peppy environment and get an average pay packet.
The free lunches are great and there's often social events being run and parties where the CEO has the opportunity
