Jail Records CLERK II (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 17, 2018
I would say this job is best for single people or parents with high school/adult children. This job requires a lot of your personal time. The are able to mandate you to stay for extended periods of time. It's a pretty easy job, just tedious. It pays pretty well but you will sacrifice a lot of your personal time for that.

The fast past environment was exciting and fun, management was on site and generally cared for the workers and productivity. The company offered incentives and hired from within. I regret leaving and would be happy to work for the company again.
Clerical Support II bilingual Spanish (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 11, 2018
Applied for a county position on a lark, during the economic downtown of late 2001/early 2002, after returning from college & just before departing for overseas work. Interviewed quickly, completed preemployment testing as required in short order... Then, nothing, til 18 months later when I happened to be back from overseas & needing a job. (If nothing else, the delay was propitious, if not also a bit dismaying. (Hiring should never be that attenuated.)) Overall, I learned a lot on the job, though not necessarily from obvious training & development composed by higher-ups. Just the day to day produced evermore contingencies to always keep in mind.

The work with the clients is great. Being threatened with consequences every day by an untrustworthy management team, not so great. So many of us walk into work wondering if today is the day I get fired. There may or may not be a pool as to who gets walked out next.
Fast paced, loved my patients, clean facility.I learned older county employees re mean and lazy. They seriously "eat their young". Some de escalation tactics are quite negative to the patient, they are there because of mental illness , I think that the nurses forget that.
Correctional Officer (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 14, 2018
A job is supposed to be a job. Not a new lifestyle. I get mandated so much I can’t even see my family or SO anymore. I work and I sleep. I took a personal day to go to a family event out of state and then got mandated for another shift. So I basically wasted a personal day and ran late to the event. We are severally under staffed and the higher ups don’t give 2 sh*ts about your well being.

To much mandatory overtime, all of your off days are taken, to much micro management. Internal affaires will go to any lengths to build a case on you inclining but not limited to lying to police to gain entry to your house. I would not recommend this job to anyone.

Management needs to change and become more team oriented. It could be an awesome place to work if employees weren't so afraid of losing their jobs, so they backstab and pull others down in order to promote themselves.
Some good relationship can be made, networking is good and so are the benefits.
parking is expensive and an issue for some individuals.
good place to network
no raises and job could depend on budget year. you have to pay for parking
Grounds (Former Employee) – Milwaukee County, WI – June 1, 2018
Working outdoors in the summer is an excellent time wherever you may be. Working for Milwaukee County Zoo had many flaws, and they severely underpay their employees. They exploit a loophole where they let employees work full-time without giving them benefits by "firing" them for 2 weeks out of the year, then bringing them back on calling them seasonal workers.
