Work-Life Balance

Due to staff shortages and seniority issues, vacations, when desired are hard to come by. Working hours are around the clock and working a sixteen hour day is not uncommon. Instead of time and one-half, the state gives you comp time for excess hours which only gets paid out when the department allots the money for it. Otherwise you may have many hours accrued, but may not see the time off, or the money pay-out for quite a while. The state is fairly good about family leave when needed, i.e funeral leave or sick time. There is not a great deal of team attitude. The mental aspects of the job are demanding and hard on marriages due to the stress of the position.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Cost of living raised that meet the actual climb in cost of living. More promotional opportunity, actual care that you are an asset and are appreciated.

Company culture

Realistically, my directors were great, despite their own many chores.

Support from Management

I served under many great directors while there, emphasis on many. Rapid turnover, typically based on promotions, caused different operational continuity problems.


Except for bouts of frustration due to changes, the team I served with were united.

Level of Autonomy

The workload is fair as long as all of the positions are filled. There is flexibility for individual assertion of ideas.
