worked as dispatcher
Worked as dispatcher. loved working with the public , long hours, very stressful at times. Just do your work and mind your own business, don't get caught up in office politics because if management hears about it they will remember it for years to come.
Pros
get several days off in a row
Cons
long hours on call

For New Hanover county Clerks Office
The most dysfunctional, political, back-biting, management picking favorites office I’ve ever worked for. If you’re not in— you’re out ! If you’re not first— you’re last. You can and will be replaced at the drop of a hat with no reason given. Management is mediocre at best. Don’t ... just don’t!!
Pros
None
Cons
Management playing favorites

Poor management and communication
Poor Management and communication. Nothing is confidential even if they tell you it is. The rules only apply to the people that don't fit into their box and social status.

Terrible
I worked part time as a substitute teacher for New hanover county schools. It is was a terrible job, and not worth the time. The hours conflict with my Music business.

unsafe and difficult work environment
12 hour shifts, extremely difficult to even get a quick bathroom break, let alone get a day off approved. Mandatory overtime, unqualified supervisors, unsafe working conditions, low pay for the position.

Great Working atmosphere
The work enviorment was very relaxed at times unless you were under a time limit. I learned to work under a deadline. Managment was very good. The incentives are very worth it. The hardest part of the job was living so far from family.

Beware
Beware of management! Their method of managing is using fear, threats, belittling, shaming, etc. If you question them or stand up for yourself, they will use it against you and target you. They will attack you as a person, your personality, your clothing, your weight, your medical conditions, etc. There is absolutely no job security here. You are absolutely replaceable, no matter how good you are at your job. Please beware of working here and apply at your own risk.
Pros
Insurance benefits, Personal & Sick time
Cons
