The good thing is that it helps you understand the value of things we possess in life and being grateful to have them. The bad thing about this job is that the Work load overwhelming.
Management NEEDS training. I’ve been through multiple supervisors and one thing I know for sure is the lack of management skills. People without any former/lack of management/leadership skills are placed into positions they have no business being in.
So while working as a probation officer, the other departments did not know we were even apart of the sheriff's office. I love HCSO to death and wish I would have started my career in a different department. Probation or detention specialists get 150-200 probationees a month. All who have to be seen in the first 20 days of the month. I know they have a budget they have to abide by but they legit have/had 20 detention specialists with a crazy caseload. Most in the department are just putting in their 2 years to transfer to another department. Better training would be the main thing I would suggest, as well as get better supervisors. When you have someone telling you every day that if you make a mistake you are going to jail it causes a very stressful work environment and that would be the guy with the intials PP
Like any Law Enforcement Agency. The work environment is extremely fast paced and at times dangerous. Management does not back the Deputies. If a complaint is made y the public, Management usually sides with the public. As a Patrol Deputy, you will respond continually to calls, write numerous reports andand are expected to complete three task in a rapid manner. All written reports are edited by your Supervisor and have to be extremely detailed and completely error free.are expected to

I work in the Financial section of the HCSO. I love my job and my co-workers are all wonderful. The managers are rarely appreciative of those in the worker pool. Jobs are plentiful because so many people are leaving. The morale is poor. There's no incentive to work hard because performance evaluations rarely reflect it. Co-workers are friendly and make up for management's indifference. Benefits are great! Pay is on the low side of the range.

Poor morale, promotions are hard to get, managers are indifferent
This agency is one of the highest paid. Depending on where you work there is an ability to move around and grow. Hours are long though and sometimes hard to manage time with families. Some leadership is decent to work under.
no real break time

I worked there for 20 years as a Detention Deputy. It is what you make it. College degree will get you ahead, even if you don't deserve it. Things changed over the years and I can say I wouldn't do it again. Good and bad supervisors, same as coworkers. I never really had a problem myself and that says a lot. I did retire early and enjoying my pension til I die. Since I left, the pay has increased over $8. Used to be difficult to go to the road from the jail but i think that has changed.
Work half the year, good pay, retirement
Poor behaved inmates, always short handed
Going through the Chain of command is required for everything yet nobody ever does anything to assist. The job itself was such a perfect match for me and utilized my 20 plus legal experience. I loved my actual responsiblities and I was awesome at the job. My direct supervisor was awsome, if I could have kept the job and only had to deal with her, I would have retired there but the Director and entire chain of command is simply just putting their time in to either retire or get to another position and everybody is out for themselves. I went through a year from applying for this job, getting called for an interview, going through background and criminal checks, drug screenings and actually starting the job. I took a pay cut to have this position and it would have been worth it had management not been so horrible. The turn over in the probation division is insane. Roughly 10 people left in my short time here and people I'm still friends with are still trying to find other employment.
