FT Public Health Regional Genetic Counselor (Current Employee) – Wilmington, NC – August 2, 2018
Working for the State of NC at times has been great at times and at other times has been horrid. That has depended mostly on the supervisor of the moment who currently is very good. The biggest issue is the lack of education (2 meetings in almost 17 years) and the low salary for which the State feels that earning 30% than a new graduate is appropriate even with 31 years experience. The variability of duties is a huge plus and being able to work remotely is as well. My colleagues are wonderful as well...though there are far fewer of us than 17 years ago when I started with the State (due to low salaries).
Office Assistant III (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – June 30, 2018
The best part of the job was helping people. The worst part of working here was the gossiping and back stabbing of fellow employees. Some employees were caring and good to work with. There were very little team work. They expected people to work double work very often.
Low pay, bad environment, other chain of command going outside their role to boss employees not under them, favoritism, etc!
Processing Assistant III (Former Employee) – Drpartment of Corrections – June 9, 2018
Cut throat employees, low pay, no raises, dangerous work environment, mandatory retirement deduction all based on your money earned, getting paid once a month with retirement deductions made for no paycheck left. If you want health insurance for children or a spouse, it will take everything you make, told I could not use my accumulated sick time after being out one day in a month with a doctor note furnished the next day. Upper paid staff snubbed lower paid staff no matter how friendly you were. They were just automatically better than you while they gossiped and giggled all day collaborated in one office carrying on. Same employees wrote down dishonest time that they were reporting to work in morning, but I couldn't take a sick day for my small child with strep throat told to me outta chain of command that was NOT my chain of commsnd when I had sick time remaining. Same chain of command employee allowed all the above outta employees under her.
IT Manager - Enterprise Operations (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – June 1, 2018
Much side track and concerns about the multitude of functions and levels of Senior Management to navigate. There are many changes with lack of job postings and both internal and external notifications and/or ability to compete.
Case Coordinator Family Court (Current Employee) – Asheville, NC – May 8, 2018
Over my years wit h the State of NC; Judical Branch, I have learned various statues, laws, local rules and International all. I coordinate several UCCJEA conferences with different states and countries.
It was a unnecessarily stressful job with obstacles that should not be there. Morale is low and the schedule worked makes i a constant struggle. We manage juvenile delinquents daily schedules and manage their behaviors.
Rhis is a very stressful and unsafe place to work. You constantly have to watch your back from Inmates and Staff.
Correctional Officer (Current Employee) – North Carolina – March 5, 2018
The prison system is so screwed up in North Carolina, it's unbelievable. Management can't do anything with inmates so they are riding correctional officers constantly over the littlest things. Correction Officer's are risking their lives daily and Upper Management is making it worse on C.O. Staff, write ups for Inmates are not being processed and Inmates are running Lumberton correctional. Staff is constantly harassed by upper management and complaints have been ignored.
Management Stinks, health Insurance is not good, Micromanagement on every shift.
Processing Assistant V/ Team Lead (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – March 1, 2018
I normally monitor the customer services reps on the calls. I also run the chat room to help employees with questions about the calls at the time. I also run report on employee stats. I also get on the phones if the calls get backed up.
Probation and Parole Officer (Former Employee) – Washington, NC – February 26, 2018
The State of NC offers an employee several decent benefits and a retirement system. Work can be stressful one day and laid back the next. Your happiness with the job usually depends on your unit supervisor. They are the ones that set the pace and their management, or lack thereof, can make work enjoyable or a living nightmare.
Operations. (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – February 21, 2018
A state faccility that carters for residents of north Carolina. It is also a learning environment for students pulling resources from retirees from all sectors.A congomelation of all retired and volunteer professionals..
Retired (Former Employee) – Raleigh-Durham, NC – February 10, 2018
Run as quickly as you can...Not worth the headache...Managers racist and jealous against their on background and culture. The state needs more diversity. Its lacking all cultures and thats the serious issue. No transparency among every employee that provides a service to the residents of nc.
