Custodial Worker (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 20, 2016
This job is a pretty good job but no different opportunities to move up and the management here is horrible. I have been here for almost 3 years and haven't had an issue until they changed shifts from 12-8pm to 3pm-11pm. They don't care about their employees.

Nurse consultant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 13, 2015
Worked from home and from the downtown office. Daily travel also included between Nursing Homes, client homes and downtown office. Detailed work including the state of PA and Allegheny County offices.Learned alot concerning both medicade and medicare qualifications. This position was considered a management position, overlooking and detailing the work of the social workers that were employed by the Area on Aging Department of Human Services. The hardest part of the job was the travel and finding available parking throughout Allegheny County. The most enjoyable part of the job was the NHT (Nursing home transition) program. Enabling clients to move home and live independently after living in a nursing home.
Supervisors and management work with 'open door' policy. Communication is key here.
LABOR RELATIONS ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 12, 2015
Great place to work! Management is understanding. Communication has always been the key to every interaction. Job fairs gave numerous surveys of excellent feedback in the way things are handled in our department and within our facility. Our co-workers are team players and strive for success.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – November 26, 2014
Work load is too heavy. Not enough time in the day to complete your tasks so you have to take short cuts. Management is awful. They just dont care. Still doing paper charting and there is alot of "repeat" charting.
Executive Secretary (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 4, 2014
Allegheny County Council is a political office that was constantly changing. This constant change was the most enjoyable, ad the hardest part of the job for me because it presented me with constant and consistent challenges. The face and environment of the office changed with each election. This was the greatest challenge, though not impossible. Just challenging.
"A typical day at work" didn't exist. I worked directly under the Director of Budget and Administration as well as 15 Council Members. Each one requiring/demanding something different and all possessing different characters, emotions, and personalities.
I got along well with all of my co-workers, Directors, Council Members, Department heads ad employees of other departments in Allegheny County.
Healthcare, relationships with companies and other departments
Persons in the main call area are ones who like to start rumors about new hires.
Operator (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 3, 2014
Taking emergency calls I have learned patience and understanding for persons who are under stressful situations. The management has its ups and downs, depending on who is on call when you are working. They have been know to choose their favorite people in the center. I learned to be careful of some of the co-workers, not to get too close with some. As I stated they have ones who like to start rumors and give new hires a rough time. The hardest part of the job was to not take the work home with you after having very stressful and painful calls. The most enjoyable part was knowing I was helping someone in time of need and gave them comfort in knowing I was there for them.
Great pay and benefits
Mandated hours at times, working 4hrs to 8hrs over
