    Former Employee - Eligibility Supervisor 

    I worked at Los Angeles Department of Public Social Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It’s a job - that’s about it.

    Cons

    If you love getting no money and being over worked then this place is absolutely perfect for you! If you love working with unmotivated and lazy coworkers then this place is also perfect for you! If you love dealing with office politics and managers who don’t care about you then this place is also for you! I wouldn’t wish this work environment for my worst enemy. Please do yourself a favor and look for a job elsewhere. I promise you the benefits are not worth being miserable 9 hours a day.
