Court Clerk (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJuly 28, 2018
Working for the clerk's office was a great experience. Of course being a governmental agency there are always office politics going on. What was the most disheartening was the favoritism from the head management on down. If you were one of the chosen you could do no wrong. If you were not, it didn't matter how good of a quality of work you did, you were never their kind of person. Very sad to say the least. I enjoyed working in the courtroom the most of all. Working alongside the judges, attorneys and deputies made the job very enjoyable.
Pros
very interesting and ever changing
Cons
office politics

Loved Working Here
Board Reporter (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FL 33756June 11, 2018
I loved my time with Pinellas County. I learned a lot about the workings of local government and expanded my administrative skills. It was fun getting out of the office to go to various meetings. Some of them were quite juicy!

Election Aide, Supervisor of Elections (Former Employee) –  Largo, FLMay 22, 2018
While I enjoyed working for the County, there was minimal to no room for advancement. There was no room for movement within the organization latterally or upward. Great staff, decent management, just no career growth opportunities.

Really depends on who is County Administrator at the time

Unhealthy work environment
Human Services (Current Employee) –  Pinellas CountyFebruary 9, 2018
A typical day at work will consist of your normal day to day operation and a few several interruptions from your supervisor or leadership of changes that will change your day or week. Regardless of having the necessary tools, leadership makes this position extremely stressful. Workplace culture is government funded and oriented. Some good employees and coworkers. Some departments are personally ran. Hiring friends into higher positions. the hardest part about the job is being undervalued and over used in areas that were not addressed originally in the job posting. This is very similar with other jobs but this may possible be inefficient and failure to properly utilize personnel. The most enjoyable part about the job is assisting residents of the Pinellas County, regardless of the sometimes tense, confusing, work environment to include leadership and management.

Not a healthy place to work
Traffic Signal Technician (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJanuary 18, 2018
Management in this department could care less about the morale of its workers they encourage others 2 not get along very competitive Cutthroat environment not a healthy workplace unfortunately.
I would be very hard-pressed to recommend this job to anyone looking to get into this field. The pay is extremely low for the work that is required of you you are nothing more than a contractor that builds intersections for the county very little brain work mostly braund for $16 an hour hardly gets it for me.
Pros
Lots of time off great benefits
Cons

Insurance Manager (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJanuary 17, 2018
I personally found my job rewarding. Pinellas County encourages personal growth and advancement for their employees. There are limited positions available which are budgeted for in advance making hiring new employees a difficult and long term project.
Pros
Educational opportunities & variety in work day
Cons
Time consuming authority & approval process is sometimes frustrating

Great family environment to work in
Supervisor Building Services & Building Violations (Current Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJanuary 15, 2018
Pinellas County has something about it. Hires the most friendly and hard working people that you call family. Fast paced, you learn a lot about the community. It takes certain individuals who want to work for their local community. Dedication is what I see around me. Many people who work here are married 30+ years and many work past average retirement age and enjoy people. Really enjoy working for the county and proud to be a part of it.
Pros
vacation days and benefits
Cons
none really

Not a good place to work
Mainframe/Unix Systems Programmer (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLNovember 7, 2017
There was a lot of office politics and favoritism. Different opinions were frowned upon. Quarterly reviews were awful and not accurate. Very poor moral.

911 Operator
911 Operator (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLOctober 12, 2017
911 is a difficult job. It is hard to speak with people on a day to day basis that are having emergencies. The environment can be fast paced and very hectic, or slow and tedious. You must be able to be available during all major events (such as hurricanes).

Fun Workplace with tons of learning experience
Beach Lifeguard (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLSeptember 12, 2017
A good day would be patrolling the beach for anyone that needs assistance and heading to emergency calls to help anyone in need of medical help. The hardest part of the job is the heat.
Pros
free lunches occasionally
Cons
short breaks, heat

Cons
Manager and her bully friends
