Pay is way to low! People can't live on 9.00 am hour.

Everyone should be held accountable for their areas of expertise and the knowledge base required to perform it, eg. If a department head makes purchases for goods or services from a friend or relative and this is questioned, they don't come back with the answer ' I didn't know I was required to get 3 bids' and write a recommendation for the proposal chosen particularly if it wasn't the lowest bid and how it meets the RFP. Accountability and oversight vs Cronyism and plausible deniability. All State staff should conduct themselves in a manner that suggests not even look of impropriety.

The benefits are wonderful but the pay is low according to the cost of living. The interview process is horrible and the hiring team tends to waste most interviewee time when they already know who they intend to hire. What a shame.

My advice would be that agencies leans toward hiring on the buddy system instead of giving others a chance at employment. Yes the pay in not in sink with the level of education that they are requiring.

There should be more balance between the employee's pay and the cost of living! And it is true that inflation is still with us but not notable raises in state workers' pay!!

Bring union jobs back to Florida and enforce job labor laws. Florida is upside down. Cost of living is through the roof yet pay is lowest in nation. Have to work 16 hrs a day just to live paycheck to paucheck. Relocation to another state is a must!

In order to reduce the extremely high turnover rate/revolving door. Employees would stay if they are valued, not just in benefits and actions, but compensation as well. Inflation continues to increase, but State employees receive no pay increases. The caseload is unrealistic and needs to be re-vamped. The Florida citizens suffer with long wait times & the workers suffer with low pay, high turnover, low morale & unrealistic caseloads. There needs to be a better & efficient way to throughly serve the clients & employees.
