Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to see out union contract settled before it expires. In the past there has been gaps of a year of more before our contract is settled and we are compensated.

What I like about the company

Needed equipment is readily available. Immediate supervisor is fantastic to work for.

What I dislike about the company

None, it's a government agency and sometime the wheels of government spin slowly.

  • I would not make any changes at this time.

Plenty of overtime is available all of the time and you can choose any shift you want to work.

There isn't always open communication about what is going on with employees.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop promoting criminals.

What I like about the company

Nothing

What I dislike about the company

Poor management. If you go to management with a complaint you are given a card to seek mental health counseling. Extreme low moral. Sheriff is only interested in looking good on television. Manpower is dangerously low.
