Mentally rewarding but tough on monetary advancement
Special Education Teacher (Current Employee) – Potomac Middle School – January 5, 2014
Prince William County Schools is a fairly good county to work for, however, they have lacked in their monetary raises and advancements. Being a teacher is very mentally rewarding, but I am looking for more opportunities to advance and move forward. In my particular position, it is very difficult. We have not received a substantial raise in over 5 years and this makes it difficult in Northern Virginia when inflation and prices raise, but the pay checks do not. However, I really do enjoy teaching others... both young students and the adult population.
I also enjoy training in software and that is also what I have accomplished in the county with the other teachers in both of the schools that I have worked for. I enjoy being Co-Chair and it has taught me some of the most enjoyable aspects of being in management. I have leaned that teaching others has humbled me greatly and I have been so grateful for that opportunity. I would love to continue to thrive forward into another position and company and I can offer a great deal of knowledge and experience.
Some weeks off in the summer

Senior Property Code Enforcement Inspector (Current Employee) – Prince William County, VA – May 19, 2018
Poor management, zero employee recognition, not trustworthy. My department is run by someone who lacks leadership skills, who does not believe in team building and turns a blind eye to the terribly low morale within our office.
Deputy Clerk (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – May 19, 2018
The county itself has really high rates for insurance for family or employee and dependent rates, it eats into your paycheck quite a bit. The salaries could be better as well. The clerk's office specifically, use to be stressful and a new clerk was elected, who has created an intimidating work place environment. Speak your mind at a cost.
Excellent company to work for; however, management needs training
Administrative Support Assistant II (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – May 18, 2018
I worked in an administrative position with Prince William County. I enjoyed the work hours and the short commute. The position that I was in did not allow me to advance. The county has several programs in place to help you advance however, your supervisor has to be willing to allow you the time to go to training. I would say that I would work for the county again, however, choose your department wisely. Find out exactly how many individuals have worked in that positon and the reason for leaving. If you find that position is open frequently find out why. Some individuals have worked for the county for several years and need new manager style. While working there I also felt that manager didn't care about you as a person just as long as you were getting the work done. Also make sure you get fairly compensated.
Finance (Former Employee) – Library Admin – March 27, 2018
Cut throat Management, not trustworthy, sneaky, poor pay. The Finance Director cause havoc throughout the library and the environment is very toxic. Even the employees under her are brought to tears and they are scared to the point that they turn on each other to save themselves. Very sad situation as everyone knows it but does nothing about it.

Probation Officer II (Current Employee) – Mānā, HI – December 10, 2017
Management is not concerned with understanding employees job responsibilities but are rather just concerned with adding more job responsibilities. Management also has a lack of direction with leadership. Each supervisor has a different idea of what is required and also how to do what is required. There is no consistent form of leadership.
