Parks and Trails Attendant in Center City, MN
on November 7, 2022

The Parks and Trails Associate is typically a seasonal job running about March or April through October. It is primarily working in the office at the front of the park, selling annual and daily passes, answering various questions about trails to hike, camping, the best place to fish, etc. The "B and G's" (building and grounds employees) do the general maintenance, but I had the opportunity to work maintenance shifts about a third of the time. I discussed this with my manager at hiring and expressed an interest and she was great about getting me some time outside. It was mainly cleaning buildings, emptying garbage's, cleaning vault toilets-not my favorite task, but they are spread throughout the park, so I got to spend a lot of my day going through the prairies and forests to get from site to site.

The office politics will get to you in the end. The agencies do not practice what they preach. You will be expected to work while you are sick and if you need family medical leave, forget it, even if you put in 15-plus years.

What is the best part of working at the company? Great benefits and close to home What is the most stressful part about working at the company? Mandates, unprofessional staff, unbothered managers, critical and judging employees and staff. Would never work there unless it was the last job on earth What is a typical day like for you at the company? Clock in, report, gossiping staff, ratio of one nurse to 2 cna for locked unit and unlocked of 40 patients: 4 of which are one on one when up and let me tell you they were up a lot at night.

Court Operations Associate in Anoka, MN
on October 25, 2022

The constant turnover of great employees is really hurting employee moral. I have seen the WORST micromanaging I have seen in my life here. The 3 supervisors who sit upstairs in administration are vile. They do not know how to do the job, they take long breaks, constantly on personal calls, no questions ever get answered, they do not help train and the sit in their offices ALL DAY on Skype calls with each other trash talking employees. Only good part about this job is the people. The Judges don't know/don't care what management is doing. They have a huge job and these issues should be dealt with by the administrator. The Judges and their teams will treat you with dignity. In the courtroom everyone is happy and works well together. Once you go back to your desk in the office. ...nothing but stress. The Judges and all other employees (besides supervisors, HR and the administrator) at Anoka are some of the best humans I have worked for/with. I hope management sees how much more costly and stressful it is that we have to continue to train new employees while they sit and pick at people, making everyone not enjoy their jobs. Almost all of us here have one foot out the door except the handful of grand fathered in County benefited employees. They are stuck. Every week it seems there is an opening here. Run from Anoka like the rest of us have been doing. Go to any other County. You will be happy you did.

Interview Questions

I will note I was interviewed the first time by two people. One from the Capitol complex/Department of administration and the History Center. I was talked into the history center but they neglected to mention the six day rotating schedule but that place was so amazing I didnt care. Second time it was four people. Two of which ended up being coworkers training asking questions as part of a panel. Neither was intimating.
