Not worth it!
The only good things I enjoyed while working for HHSC as a Texas Works Advisor were my coworkers and the time off for holidays. The job is rewarding if you like to assist people with gaining eligibility for federally funded social service programs. The pay is poor and management is very messy, petty, and childish. Morning huddles were very shady and lacked motivation. Don’t expect to receive additional training once you come back from basic skills training because the managers don’t know how to work the systems used to process cases but expect for new workers to know how to do everything. Management sits in their office all day and gossips with each other rather than jumping in and helping out during busy days. Management does not care about their employees unless you make them look good to their regional director and state office. Don’t expect raises or bonuses because they don’t exist. Overall, the job is cool to get your foot in door with the state but expect to do a lot of brown-nosing if you want to get far and move up. This job isn’t for a people who are educated and outspoken because upper management hates that. They expect employees to conform to everything and work hard with no incentives. Also, there’s mandatory overtime every month which isn’t worth anything once it gets paid out. Expect to live at home with your parents, get a roommate, or a second job to make ends meet.
Bad management, low pay, hostile work environment
