The Dept of Labor was a very good place to work. My supervisors were supportive, fair, and helpful. The work itself is satisfying, and they actively try to promote folks according to skill and experience, even offering education assistance in areas the Dept needs. The only downside was that quite a few of the coworkers gossip a lot! Nonetheless, an overall positive experience.

The Department of Labor provided many opportunities to advance, and take on mentoring roles. The flexibility was the biggest (and most significant) perk of working there. There was never a time that I felt terrible for taking time off or last-minute time off. Management was very welcoming and never made one feel that a question couldn't be raised. If anything, questions were encouraged, as the common saying was, "Nobody knows everything, so don't be afraid to ask." In this way, this allowed the staff to feel comfortable in seeking help when needed. Overall a great place to work, and know that your work makes a difference. However, over a period of time, work can feel mundane, but that can be fixed by seeking different projects or moving to different roles. One other Con is that this is public work, so don't really be expecting a nice company paid for outing, dinner, or party, as every dollar is accounted for and reported for public view. As a result, it gives cheap vibes, but not really a big issue as one can do those things independently.

Over all the staff was great. Don't bother working for the maintenance department. NO opportunities in that department with the current management. It's a micromanaged type of environment. The Superintendent has no clue what he's doing. Has no business being a manager.

The progressive necessity for the IDOL to be an actual resource for job seekers and employers was lacking when I was there. Managers were not able to implement the changes needed at their local office level and technology was almost non-existent when reaching remote areas. Job seeking classes should include a computer and internet basics course. More or less, prgram constraints were limiting but most of with whom I worked went above and beyond to serve the public.

This job is not secure, many people think Government is but i was there over a decade and saw a ton of layoffs. The pay is really low about a quarter lower than the market and you will not get real raises. Often the insurance premium increases will be the exact amount of your raise. About 70% of the people have other jobs to survive and only stay to help the people of Idaho. The staff are amazing but the management is egotistical and terrible at their jobs. You will constantly watch the best staff leave while the lazy ones stay and get promoted. No pay for performance, not even a handshake but the Directors will hire their friends for 80k of the taxpayers money no problem. Dont do it trust me.
