Cashier (Current Employee) – Hooksett, NH – July 17, 2018
Working for the state has it's ups and downs. Many of the part time people working do not get the leisure and gifts that full time people do. Only being able to work 28 hours a week with no benefits gets to you. If you are only looking for a part time with no benefits, then this job would fit you.
Health & Human Services (Former Employee) – Concord, NH – September 17, 2018
Very poor management at most agencies. You can throw a dart at a dartboard and get the same results at any agency you work for. Please understand, the decision to work for the state has been the worst of my life, and has and will be and never change. Management is poor, too strict and then too loose, the management encroaches on everything you do, then they leave you alone forever and say you haven't done any work. The management doesn't know whether they are coming or going anywhere! Have you ever had 100 micro managers looking over your shoulders? That is what it's like working for state government. Often your good work is usurped by others, so that they can take credit for your good work. If you have a legitimate reason to take a day off, they verify until they find something wrong with your request. They take other peoples word, and not yours as truth. There are basically no careers at the state, in fact working for the state will probable make your career disappear. A lot of state workers openly waste taxpayer money by goofing off and then stabbing others in the back if you complain about their work/ethics. Long standing management protect the backs of those who don't work. Management practice or management style is of "fear" and "fear mongering" and they all perform it best. The actual work to do is really very minimal, unless your a "State Trooper" or a toll booth $ collector and those jobs are disappearing also. The entire workforce of appox 10K can be deduced to an estimate of 1K and the state could really save $$$$. The State is a huge example of "THEmore... GOOD OL BOYZ NETWORK IN ACTION" I'm really looking forward to going into the private sector.less
Adult Protective Social Worker III Remote (Current Employee) – Concord, NH – June 12, 2018
Rewarding job working with the most vulnerable population in New Hampshire. Supportive co-workers and community agencies. The hardest part of the job was the lack of resources which is where creativity is used and relied on in many situations
Probation and Parole Officer (Current Employee) – NH – May 6, 2018
If you are looking for an opportunity to work a lot of overtime, this is the place for you. Often forced due to staff shortages, the state prison will gratefully let you work 16 hours a day to include your weekends.
Can be great place to work depending on which Agency

I was with the State for 20 years, had to take a year off for personal reasons. I worked my way up from a labor grade 5 to labor grade 25 so it you have initiative and desire you can learn a great deal and there are advancement opportunities
AUDITOR (Current Employee) – Concord, NH – March 2, 2018
They don't promote from within. It is very political. Instead of trying to promote those qualified the go outside. It is not very good for moral. They employees are not recognized for the good work they do.

Radio Dispatcher, Department of Transportation (Former Employee) – Lebanon, NH – October 31, 2017
Loved the position and co-workers. I learned a lot about just what our State road crews do. The one issue was the micromanagement of direct supervisor. The position called more for a level entry person vs. a very experienced office person.
The work, co-workers.
Micromanagement, lack of follow through by management, low pay.
