As long as you are part of the click you are ok. Other than that it is a great choice for the stability and benefits that are given. Just need to have patience with the stupid management decision that contradicts all logic and mismanagement of money.

Welder (Former Employee) – Aviation Department – March 3, 2018
If you are a person with a certain skill set this job will ruin you. Every knowledge that you have of your position will be sucked up by management because they don't know how to do your job. Get used to working on equipment that's prehistoric. And if you need a certain tool or piece of equipment good luck with that and then they expect you to still do your job without the proper equipment. They may bring you in the office show you a photo on the computer tell you that there's only one that needs to be repaired and then they'll take you to the job site and there's five but the way they work is you bring all your materials needed which by the way they only had enough to do that one for that specific job get there and then sit in the truck for 1 hour and wait for the lead man to tell you what to do and he tells you there's five they work so completely backwards. And then guess what it's your fault that you can't do your job.
Community Liaison Specialist (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – February 16, 2018
Teaching at the Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually impaired can be at first a very challenging position because it involves to adapt work and homework to each student based on their special needs. However, it is an enormous and wonderful joy when a student finally has done its work succesfully.
I worked for several County Departments so it was a different learning experience on each. The toughest part was dealing with bureaucracy. The most rewarding was my relationships with coworkers and bosses. Lots of team work. I consider myself lucky to have landed in positive environments.
Room for advancement. Available training that allows employees to grow and get better.
