Adult Protective Services Specialist II (Former Employee) – Oklahoma – February 25, 2018
The state lacks support and financial backing to provide social services that support our most vulnerable citizens. However, I worked with amazing people and management that support these citizens to the best of their ability with limited support from the state. Such as with our teachers in the state. The most enjoyable part of the job, to say the job was enjoyable, was when you were able to provide services to address exploitation, neglect and abuse of our fellow citizens.
Dedicated co workers
Poor support from state legislature in support of social services.
Ping Pong would be great for some. My vote would be for a workout gym.
Senior Case Manager (Former Employee) – McAlester, OK – February 8, 2018
A typical day at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary (OSP}. My first task was to proceed to Offender housing and speak with each man on 2 of 4 Quads. We were short staffed which caused each of us to work a double caseload. It takes approximately 2- 4 hours to speak to each offender. We returned to our offices to enter all comments to their records. Every day we retrieve their mail, clothes. Once a week we would pick up their canteen, escort them to the Library and Medical (if eligible}. The hardest part of the job was daily visitation. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping offenders prepare for the GED.
The Warden's occasional Steak, Bar BQ, fish fry, Thanksgiving, and Christmas dinners.
Workforce Specialist (Former Employee) – Sapulpa, OK – January 17, 2018
Working for the State of Oklahoma was a very good experience. Friendly people pulling together for a great cause was only part of the experience. Helping people to meet their employment needs and working with them through the step by step process was very rewarding
A lot of great perks.
Very few pay raises once you reach a certain level.
Systems and Server Administration, Webmaster (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – December 7, 2017
Working for the Department of Public Safety was a very friendly, enjoyable career. The management did the best with what the State budgets would allow and always tried to make sure the employees had everything they needed to succeed.
Social Services Specialist (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – December 6, 2017
Very low pay, high caseloads, over the top policies and processes designed to make it near impossible to complete cases completely accurately. Case reviews are shared in weekly meetings, including calling out individuals publicly for mistakes. Not fun.
No overtime, so good work/life balance
Low pay, large caseloads, little management support
Tax Examiner (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – November 30, 2017
Older crowd 35-70. No overtime compensated in pto. Extreme "POWER TRIPS" and favoritism. Co-workers with years of experience working there, not real open to change. Makes it known constantly who's been there the longest so that you won't forget. Hires a lot of tempts in during tax season, then let them go.
