a typical day for me meant dealing with our consumers over the phone and sometimes in person. I learned how to san documents in computer as they were just starting this process when my temporary status ended I enjoyed working with the supervisor and staff. The hardest was not enough hours some days to complete assignments. The most enjoyable part of the day was helping consumer find services they needed.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 22, 2017
One of the worst places I've ever worked. If you like being degraded by not only management, but your coworkers on a daily basis while being passed over by someone's incompetent relative or an unscrupulous brown noser, then that's the place for you! I wouldn't suggest my worst enemy work there, or maybe I would. It's really that bad. People have died from the working conditions there, and OSHA refused to do anything about it. They should erect a memory wall for all the people who died from the complications from so many occupational hazards. The CEO who was a decent guy, with his hands tied and a slave to the board members, who were the real power there. Even HE hated that place. He left for a much better job about a month before I finally left.
At least you get a paycheck every 2 weeks.
Abuse at every turn. From management and coworkers.

Programs Director (Current Employee) – Washington, NC – August 25, 2015
As one of two paid employees, a typical day includes wearing many hats. Anticipating what needs to happen or to be taken care of before the situation arises is a big part of my day. To manage all that needs to be done, I have learned it pays to be early, organized and aware of what needs to be done in every aspect of the business, and to prioritize its importance for the day. The hardest part of my job is when I need to be several different people at one time, for instance- instructor to the clients while supervising Community service and customers wanting to buy goods out of our shop while cooking lunch and setting up for the afternoon program after the room has been rented! The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the changes in the clients when great things happen for themselves through learning, the center selling goods or the intrinsic feelings from having a purpose and are needed.
