San Bernardino County is a great county to work with. The pay isn't at the top, but the opportunities are endless. The departments are great to work for and the people make the job fun.

Office Assistant II (Current Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAJanuary 13, 2019
On a day to day basis I enter in employee claims on the computer, answer in coming calls, pay medical bills, and request W-9's.
Management can be improved, as well as opportunity to move up.
The hardest part of this job is making sure the spread sheets are constantly updated.
Pros
every day is the same work load
Cons
rarely given new tasks

Stressful but rewarding
Animal Control Officer/RVT (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAJanuary 4, 2019
I enjoyed helping distressed animals of all kinds. Arrests and convictions were hard worked for. The hardest thing to do was euthanize animals, but being a field officer it was limited to sick, injured or vicious animals. It was very satisfying working with a variety of animals. Wild and domestic including livestock. I could have done without the skunks.
Working with the local sheriff's department and occasional FBI agent was rewarding.
Pros
Paid leave
Cons
Long hours when on call

Assistant Supervisor/Poll Worker (Current Employee) –  trona, caDecember 23, 2018
The county provided all of the necessary training for our crew to run a fifteen hour work day without any problems. I enjoyed my day working at the polls. The instructions for me to follow were very clear and our supervisor did a great job.

Not for the squeemish
Library Manager (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CANovember 22, 2018
There was no support from HR regarding issues brought to their attention. Suppressive in terms of autonomy.
Some co workers were amazing others had an issue with ethnic managers.
Everything that I learned was due to my own drive and initiative as there is no support for career development.

The best part of this job was creating an promoting library programs that was of great benefits to library patrons.

The worst part was dealing with ego-maniacal personas in upper management.
Pros
working with library patrons and career development that I provided to my staff via cross training.
Cons
Poor management structure, micromanagement.

No People Skills Here
Figment of the Counties Imagination (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino County, CANovember 9, 2018
This place is will stain your resume! Moral is very very very low, you don't know who you can trust. Clique centric and very hostile environment. Sabatoge of your work is something that happens here. Too many petty people and managers who do not have any real world experience. A lot of people here have worked with the county for at least a decade and did not have any real experience when they started and it really shows in their work ethic and habits. Full of wannabe professionals who's work ethic is embarrassing to work around and for. Many people here do not have people skills.
Pros
Fancy employee badge and lanyard
Cons
They waste your time

Typical Government Job but Morale is low
Deputy District Attorney (Current Employee) –  San Bernardino, CANovember 8, 2018
The workload is heavy, the administration provides little support or encouragement to attorneys, and the organization is very political.

Most training is provided onsite by current staff members, and only a very select number of attorneys get approval for training outside of the office.

The quality of support staff varies greatly: some are dedicated to their job and do all they can to provide the best services possible while others are only there to collect a paycheck and don't care about the level of service they provide.

Management/Supervision is poor for the most part.
Pros
Automatic progression through the levels of attorney seniority.
Cons
Very little recognition for those who "go the extra mile" unless you are a "favored son."

Lack of Moral

No TEAM effort in TAD WTW program. Low moral. Lack of joy and happiness. Some supervisors do not support the employee. Some supervisors are not repremanded for their behaviors and meanness towards employees. Issues are swept under the rug. FAVORITISM within the office. Some employees get special treatment.

had a contract position
Accountant II (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAOctober 28, 2018
Fellow staff in the fiscal department was amazing and helpful. I really got along great and everyone was very friendly, patient and helpful. There was a lot of miscommunication from the state liason about the cost report templates so there was some confusion and many meeting and phone conferences to confirm various details several times cutting into production being a temp... however I wish I could go back and continue applying for ft positions when open
