  • Be tougher with who they hire. Supply more supplies

What I like about the company

I worked as a poll instructor on Voting Day. It was very long, stressful, and a little crazy, but it was a very interested day. I am very happy that I completed it and gained experience on how that day works.

What I dislike about the company

Organizing needs to be better. Ran out of a lot of supplies and had to constantly ask my higher-up to bring me more. Additionally, a few of the people I worked with were lazy and wouldn't listen to me even though I was in charge

What I like about the company

My thoughts are always heard working within this environment. I enjoy working here and am very content in my job and the opportunities for advancement.

What I dislike about the company

There are times when political moves are made, rather than what is the best overall. Concern should be looked at through less of a political lens.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Some improvements that I can really enjoy is that the Parks and Recreation are not always the best to see what is going on at this time.

What I like about the company

The positivity is that you can really enjoy this at any time with so many resources of what this truly entails because of the status of the company and you have to serve the public.

What I dislike about the company

I really don't like the management because they seem to be very unorganized for the salaries that the get.
