While working here at this non-profit organization I have been able to connect children in need with inspiring community leaders who are genuinely interested in making a difference in the lives of children.

Coworkers wonderful, high turnover
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 28, 2016
Coworkers are great and very dedicated to helping children in foster care. There are extra duties that are not fully explained up front: 2-3 times per month mandatory childcare for 3 hour shifts (either in the evening after your regular 8 hour day or on a Saturday) and 2 times a year mandatory staff participation for family gatherings (each a 3 hour - non-paid - shift). Pay is very low and frustration can be high for non-management staff, therefore there is a high staff turnover. Management and Board of Directors not very interested in the staff turnover rate.
Pros
Nice people to work with. Good cause.
Cons
Management not open to new ideas. No room for advancement. Low pay.

Fun place to work.
Family Specialist (Current Employee) –  PhoenixMarch 29, 2015
My experience with AASK was fun, however there is entirely no room for advancement and pay is very low for how often you are required to travel. You are also required to do extra duties such as childcare 2-3 nights and/or weekends a month. Train a 10 week class once a year, or have the after hours phone for every few months. These extra duties are not explained during the extensive interview process.
Pros
Fun environment
Cons
low pay, extra duties, no room to advance

1 Behavioral Health Technician (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZDecember 6, 2013
The company is pretty good to work for because the employer get a chance to set their own work hours. I have learn how to help a child that requires a lot of attention. The hardest part of the job is getting the client to understand how to do something that is simple to us but hard to him/her. The most enjoyable part is helping a child that is mental ill.
Pros
I am able to set my own work hours
Cons
it is not a stable job
