It was a great place to work
Manager, Community Work Services (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – June 11, 2015
A typical day at work included scheduling staff and clients according to the work sites that they were assigned to. Compose reports, facilitate meetings, evaluate staff, kept time records via software programs. I have learned how to work with employees I was responsible for and upper management. Advocating for persons with disabilities in the community and obtain jobs for them in the community. My co-workers and I worked as a team to accomplish the organization's goals. The hardest part of the job was when some of the clients with disabilities passed away after knowing them for years. The most enjoyable part was the interaction with the clients, especially when I found suitable jobs for them in the community. Also, negotiating employment contracts for our clients. It was a very rewarding job that I was fortunate to hold for 21 years.
I relocated to Florida to be closer to family or I would still be working at the Beacon Group. Our upper management was extremely supportive to all staff and clients.
