Community Works is a good place to work, especially to gain experience within the human service field. The employees definitely follow Bon Secours Model of being "A Good Help to Those in Need". Despite the vast amount of experience gained, there aren't very many opportunities for career advancement. The reward is in serving the community because the pay rate isn't ideal for the amount of work. It's sacrificial. It also doesn't feel like the safest place to work. Management is inconsistent and constantly changing. There is constant turn over with our leaders who don't stay long enough to truly understand programing.
It was a fun clean environment. My coworker was the best. I enjoyed my return patients. The hardest part is getting attachment to the patients. The management is horrible. They do not communication with their employees.

A typical day at work starts by opens hospital building door, daily monitoring thru out the hospital building either walking or thru videos monitoring. Driving around the hospital parking lot. The hardest part of the job is taking body down to the morgue.
Nurse Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – January 10, 2017
From a management view this was a very busy company to work for. There was an enormous amount of work to be effective and often extra jobs or projects to be done. Long hours or work on Saturday was often needed to maintain the demands. In general, the care given to client's was good by staff. For CNA's there were 12 hour shifts on weekends (Modified Baylor) plus one 8 hour shift during the week that helped many CNA's go through school for other degrees.

Unit Ward Clerk (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – January 4, 2017
It was a good place to work. I worked there at nights only and it was mostly quiet there. I loved the fact that I worked in all the departments and gotten to know a lot of the hospital staff and learned how each department functions.
cafeteria wasn't opened at nights when I worked the night shift.
Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) – Henrico, VA – December 16, 2016
Dishonest HR leaders. EAP have cameras and shares personal information with your managers. Employee Wellness screening health results are accessible to all employees and managers at Bon Secours and are used against you. Gallup survey is NOT private, you don't put a 5 down you will be in a big trouble! Lose your job in some cases. Run far away from this place. Look them up in the news, stunned they are still even in business.
