Compliance Legal Secretary II (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – June 21, 2018
there was always a lot of work to do and the county. For the most part after meetings and daily task as a group collectively there was lots to do and kept me really busy throughout the day. Great place to work, great benefits, supervisors fairly easy to communicate with.

Overall, a good workplace. Great opportunity for advancement. Promoted twice in three years. Ability to work in various departments. Performance Education Resource Center (PERC) is a very useful tool to attend seminars, training, and classes to enhance/develop skills.
Downside, line staff do not have the opportunity to evaluate supervisory/management staff. There are many supervisors/managers that are not familiar with staff duties/scope of work, nor do they take the time/opportunity to learn.
Line staff should be given "first" opportunity to promote. An exiting staff member should be given the opportunity to train a new staff member taking over that position, thereby alleviating the burden of other line staff and manager/supervisor to train. Cross-training of staff--even supervisors/managers--should be mandated and not an option; this will allow a continuous flow of ensuring that the goals and mission of the organization to provide the highest of quality service to clients is met.
The hardest part of the job is maintaining constant professionalism and courtesy when dealing with dissatisfied or irate clients. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a client walks away satisfied that their issue has been resolved.
If you're looking to gain experience and skills, then working for this employer is where you'll find it.
Opportunity for advancement; good benefits.
Application/Interview/Hire process needs to be simplified
Social Service Practitioner (Current Employee) – Fontana, CA – May 21, 2018
The work is very stressful, the workload is very high even for new employees. The new Managers are excellent, supportive and helpful. The workplace culture can be very hard, some senior workers are not very helpful. The hardest part of the job is writing the court reports and the low salary for the workload.
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Victorville, CA – April 14, 2018
Very organized work days. I've learned to utilize my time effectively. The hardest part of the job is having to let a client go to a more secure living arrangement. I enjoyed most of all is meeting new people and learn from their own life experiences.
You decide on the type of client you wish to care for and where.
Educational Liaison (Current Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – March 30, 2018
It is hard work - working with foster youth - as they have trauma. The days are long - 9-80 schedule or 4 10's now. The benefits are great and having 3 day weekends every other weekend is awesome too. Most of the employees are friendly and everyone collaborates to assist families. Our county is constantly striving to do better and the follow up is good. Overall I have learned a lot (they provide a ton of trainings) and it's been very rewarding. Just not how or where I want to spend my last years of working...
Very Stressful Environment, Don't know who you can trust

I believe that for the work that I was expected to do the pay was not adequate. The benefits are good, the raises were timely. My manager did not like me so it did not turn out to be a good fit. Employees were not professional there seemed to be some racial prejudice and inequality.I believe the training manager was very two faced and warned up to me to ask personal question to report to management. I say its an awful place to work, much too stressful.
