serious, but productive environment
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Beaumont, TXFebruary 26, 2018
This is a job for someone who is not discriminative in any way. You must be able to deal with all people and personalities. You must be able to comply with what is expected of you and possess good people skills. You must be able to handle situations as they arrive and follow job duties as required.

Low pay, long hours, no appreciation from management, but interesting work
Confidential (Current Employee) –  Golden, COJanuary 16, 2018
Jefferson County is understaffed, overwhelmed, and underpaid. The citizens suffer for it. Turnover is high and morale is low in my department. Fear-based leadership. Management protects its own.

Keep looking stay away from the JCSO
Deputy Sheriff (Former Employee) –  Golden, COJune 3, 2017
Jefferson County SO is a department you will regret applying with. Poor staffing, huge turn over, mismanaged, lowest paid SO for its size and a unprofessional command staff. JCSO runs a good police academy. This department is a good place to go to get POST certified and go to a better more progressive department.

None

Administrative Assistant II
Admnistrative Clerk (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALMarch 25, 2017
A typical day at work was always busy. I learned a lot about taxes. There was nothing hard about the job. We waited on customers and mailed out tax notices as well as received them in. The office is an open work space. The most enjoyable part about the job was working with the customers.
Pros
Co worker lunchoens
Cons
breaks were right behind each other and were assigned by the supervisor, The breaks schedule did not work because we worked with customers, management did not like it when we went to break late

Great job
School Bus Driver (Current Employee) –  Arvada, COFebruary 19, 2017
Great job. Love my job. People are not treated fairly. Pay is at poverty level. If your sick, you get in trouble for using sick pay that you have earned. Medical benefits are awesome.
Pros
working with kids
Cons
sick time

Horrible
Case manager (Former Employee) –  Golden, COFebruary 4, 2017
Have never witnessed such poor management and blatant disregard for employees, so bad an entire department quit and human resources didn't seem to find that unusual. Employees forced to leave, passive aggressive mngt., just horrible. I wouldn't work there again for all the money in the world, life is too short.

*This just may apply to my specific department*
Pros
Consistant hours
Cons
Raises stopped YEARS ago, closed door policy, unprofessional upper management

Toxic administion great professional development
Special Populations Outreach Librarian (Former Employee) –  Lakewood COJanuary 3, 2016
The Special Population Librarian requires 5 positions in one. You will be required to work late evenings, weekends, and with no flex time. Did I mention that they provide excellent professional development! Make sure you do the job right the first time with no errors. You will be required to visit and maintain the Spanish collection at 10 different libraries. The hardest part of the job is working with administrators. Not all administrators are this way there are many who care passionately about their staff. If you interview here make sure to ask why the turnover rate is so high. The best part of the library is the staff. The staff work tirelessly to bring positive experiences to patrons. Make sure to observe and ask questions.
Pros
Professional Development and Staff
Cons
Administration

Compensation low, management old school

The county is behind on wages and investment in employees. In addition, Human Resources is not for the employees and difficult to deal with. Management at all levels is lacking in skill sets. There is no room for advancement within certain departments.

Jeffco going downhill.
Casemanager (Former Employee) –  Golden, COMarch 23, 2015
Underpaid and mismanaged. With no raises in 6 years, vast amounts of quality personnel retreating to higher paying counties, who would want to work here? The commissioners are cheap skates and retention is horrible.
Not worth the effort. Go work for Denver and get paid thousands more!
Pros
Nice area to live in

Underpaid, mismanaged, low retention
