The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was always going to work with a smile and wanting to help customer as much as I could, went out many ways to help them but sometimes was impossible due to statues and government laws. Must always follow law at all times.


employees made it nice


Need it to change management

Toxic Work Environment

Run as fast as you can!! The environment is toxic and horribly micromanaged! The training is long and does not begin to prepare you for the actual job. Management is not nice nor helpful.

Good place to work

Pay could be better but that seems to be the normal for government paying jobs in yhe state of arizona. Employees should be given pay increases annually to compensate for inflation .

Don't apply

All about numbers. They don't care about your home life. HR will lie and take no responsibility. Same with upper management. Pay is not equal for the amount of responsibility and knowledge they expect you to have.

Reliable job with good benefits

It is a stable job and there is room for growth within the department or you may always switch departments as well. The only downside is there is rarely any raises or bonuses given out to employees but there is a lot of room to promote which is great! The benefits are what made me stick with the State of Arizona for 8 years but eventually I became burnt out and decided to pursue a different career path.

No accountability

Unproductive staff get a slap on the wrist from HR and there are many complacent staff with bad attitudes. It takes a major act to get suspended or fired from the job. Often HR moves unproductive staff around. Some supervisors are bullies and know less about the job than their staff. Good staff often get rewarded with more work and many leave due to burnout. Pros include excellent training and benefits, working with some amazing colleagues, and the opportunity to make a difference.

Traditional office "politics" new comers take heed.

The hardest part of the job was the hierarchy & lack of advance or inclusion for new diverse individual with merit to offer, the workplace itself was, & is based upon extinct tradition & connection- the World itself is in a stage of change & evolution at a whole, while this organization, workplace & environment not only lacks in a mission toward that evolution & growth, but has long term loyal employees that are being neglected through that lack of change, & feel more trapped in a necessary obligation rather than acknowledged for their progress & dedication

Customer service

Answered calls and schedule appointments for customers to come into the office for any motor vehicle help. Learned how the MVD works a little more.You’re on phones all day so sometimes it’s hard to talk bc my voice would sound horsed. I loved being able to help others.


Coworkers were nice, get your own cubicle


No benefits were offered

Good Benefits,

State of Arizona offers a good benefits package to their employees. Pay is less than the private sector and state should do a compensation study to make their pay more competitive with the private sector.

Great place to work and learn new skills

It was a okay job very rewarding. It is hard work and you have to have the heart for it but I loved it and everyone was willing to help when needed. I would say if you don’t mind the challenge then this is the place for you

rewarding and interesting

I’ve worked for the State for 13 years and have always enjoyed my work. I’ve worked for several agencies and found most of my coworkers and supervisors to be good, trustworthy people. Pay leaves something to be desired, but the trade-offs are often worth it.

It has its pros and cons

Good benefits and okay pay, but management can be a hit or miss. Sometimes there is way too micromanagement or you can't get through to management in times needed the most.

Worked from home

I enjoyed working there for 9 years. However, upper management does micro manage. Working remotely from home was offered during Covid. Unsure if it is still available.

Long-term employees are complacent. Typical government attitude.

Management & HR are terrible. They just look out for themselves and are just trying to get by until retirement. Opportunity for advancement is poor unless you know someone and pay is low.


Set schedule.

Think twice and ask to interview a coworker before accepting an offer.

What is the best part of working at the company?Think twice about working at State. Wages are low and benefit are shrinking. What is worse, Arizona Management System. Too much emphasis is placed on statistics and producing quality and quantity widgets. Lacks interest in servicing the public’s needs. Over emphasis. If you don’t meet these lofty goals, then they revoke your right to work from home. Disciplining is without hesitation or warning and very progressive. Additionally, supervision is hypercritical, vindictive, and openly retaliatory if you say anything criticizing any policy or procedures or if you call in sick. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Trying to meet monthly goals of productivity with perfection.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Horrible moral. No team building, management discourages socialization between associates unless management is present.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Miserable. Produce, produce, produce.
