RETIREMENT SPECIALIST/CASE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 3, 2018
A typical day at Milwaukee County required great attentiveness to detail as various formulas were used calculating pension benefits for active employees who would be retiring in the near future. Possessing time management skills were mandated as there were deadlines that had to be met with no exception as well as unplanned projects that had to be completed in a short period of time. The work culture was very diverse and I learned a lot from my former co-workers background history. The most enjoyable part of the job was receiving recognition for myself and collectively for being able to satisfy and serve our internal and external participants.

There is minimal room for advancement. Pay increases are difficult to come by, and it's a who you know culture. It's difficult working in run down buildings, w limited supplies to effectively do your job.
Helping the needy
Lack of funding makes it difficult to do your job.

The benefits are decent but there is absolutely no sense of team work or company moral. The pay is horrible and there are people who have been here for over 10 years and have NEVER received a raise. The county does not provide for raises and only promotes infrequently. Good for college students.
Bus Operator (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 10, 2018
At this company as a bus operator the company owns your time for 10-12 hours a day but you're only paid for about 8 hours a day. There are days when you can be scheduled to work 18+ hours in a 24 hour day.
Food Service Worker and Cashier (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 20, 2018
Honestly, working at the zoo is nice . There’s a hassle sometimes but it’s not all bad . It’s what you make it. The mangers expect you to have fun while working. Just not too much fun but you know. Fun . I really recommend it to anyone who wants a job or need easy quick money.
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.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Wisconsin – August 13, 2018
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.
Unknown (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 26, 2018
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.
