Enjoy the work, pay is average at best
I feel that I help the residents of SC. The pay is weak for the amount of information that must be absorbed to complete the tasks. Off on weekends and holidays is a big plus.

Don’t do it!’n
I worked for the SDHHS for almost 5yrs. You are always being timed on your case, and if you get a case that can’t be worked fast enough, you will have a supervisor asking what is taking you so long. I never received a pay increase, unless my insurance went up, and then you may receive a pay increase. This job pays poor and has a lot of stress. Not worth it!

i rather not give a review summary.
The only respectable staff member there was MY supervisor. Her dedication was above and beyond the call of her job description and obligation to her students and assistants.
She was the exception.

Not a productive nor fun place to work
It's important to be on time and to clock in immediately upon arrival. I enjoyed meeting a lot of really nice people, but the majority of the supervisors were there for the money only - not for the good of the state.

Beware not a good place to work. Moldy environment unhealthy, if you try to improve things the management will do everything to get rid of you.
Warning do not work for them they do not care about their workers especially the ones who have good work ethics. They do not want to improve. They're supposed to care about the health of the environment and they don't even care about the health of their own workers. They will go against your doctor's note and put you in danger. Very bad career move.
Cons
Always understaffed

Not recommended if you have a family/life
Not very understanding supervisors. Very difficult to get time off for important things. Too much stress and drama. Long working hours are hard to do and make time for other things.

Bad experience due to poor management
This was a nightmare. I constantly lived in fear my job due to an overbearing and borderline insane manager. I tried to due a good job and I think I did in spite of the fact the previous employee was taking bribes for good inspections. The middle managers are a joke. It's every man for himself, forget teamwork and support.

Poor Management
Workers including management constantly make fun of the customers. Management shows favoritism and don’t care about the actual health of the patients. Supervisors are shady and will screw your over behind your back.
