Rewarding but busy
Dietetic Technician, Registered (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 26, 2018
Working for Maricopa County WIC as a Dietetic Technician was very busy and sometimes stressful. You are expected to provide nutrition education to a certain number of clients per day as well as facilitate group nutrition discussions, which means that your time spent with each family is limited. However, when you see the changes that you have helped a family make or helped a mom with her struggles, it is very rewarding. All the staff that I worked with during me time there were amazing and enjoyed what they did. The benefits that the county provides are awesome and the cost to me was so minimal to cover my entire family. In all my years working I have not had better benefits then I did during my time there; however, the pay was low for my credential compared to other places and they start you at the bottom of the pay range, which in non-negotiable.
