A company with a lot of productivity and excitment
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Blue Island, IL – May 9, 2016
Working for the company was an awarding experience. The company taught me how to be a professional, follow protocol and procedures. How to enhance my ability to achieve my work goal under pressure, meeting deadlines and work as a team on different projects. My co-workers were absolutely the best.
Clerical (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 3, 2015
Some of the co-workers were pleasant to work with. The job had fairly good benefits like health, dental and vision insurance as well as life insurance. It also had vacation, sick and Personal Business Leave.
Intake Worker (Former Employee) – Cicero, IL – April 10, 2016
assist people in paying utility bills as long as they were within the income guidelines. Co-workers are friendly. Clients are so appreciative when you're able to help them out. It was difficult when a family was over income and could not get any assistance. Unfortunately this position was gone when the stat funds ran out.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago – June 16, 2015
I really enjoyed working for CEDA. My manager was the best, good compensation, great PTO and sick days. When they hired a group of people, the employees that were there for years became intimidated so it caused a lot of strife and office drama.
The job security was not the best because they ended up down sizing.
Quality Assurance Partnership Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 10, 2016
This organization is a Non-for-Profit funded by the federal and state government. However the state controls the distribution of both funding resources. Due to the current state of Illinois' government, the organization is not stable.
Certified Health Professional (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 26, 2014
A typical day would be counseling mom's and children on concerns about thier diet or growth and what can be done to correct any issues. Depending on the day, we may see 40-70 clients/d. Co-workers keep the day moving by doing what needs to be done while smiling and laughing. Almost like a family. The hardest part of the job would be a very upset client that may have had a rough day and is taking it out on you or a coworker. But, you have to put yourself in thier shoes sometimes and try to work out the problem as calmly as possible. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the happy children, seeing the beautiful infants and hearing that we are helping another client, or another family with the resources that is available from WIC.
Productive environment for helping others in immediate need.
Intake Worker (Former Employee) – Calumet Park, IL – May 3, 2012
A typical day at work involved me helping clients get assistance with their utility bills. I learned that everyone has their own story and no matter what people go through, some of them continue to smile through hard times. Management was ok, the rules were changed daily. My co-workers were excellent, very friendly and helpful with anything that I needed. The hardest part of the job was seeing people cry to be honest. The most enjoyable part of my day was knowing that I was a part of helping a family get their bills under control or at least down some to where they could manage them.
Head (Former Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – July 9, 2012
A typical day at CEDA consists of a loving environment where you felt like you belong, happy staff (co-workers and management), you were more of a family that was your home not your work place. You walk into the classroom and greeted by co-workers,children and sometimes the children family(ies). I learned while working at CEDA is that the myth that all women can't work together because they won't be able to get along is not true, we all got along fine, and respected each other. Management at CEDA was great, management would walk into the classroom and acknowledge your appearance, not just saying hello, but holding a conversation about the children art on the walls anything that may have happened on her way to work, sometimes she would ask about your family at home, how you are doing?. The hardest part of this job, I would have to say was not having the training to work with children who was diagnosis with either a learning disability or illness and didn't have the training to work with them. The most enjoyable part of this job is making friends, being appraised for your work, the trainings that enhanced my knowledge of how to be a better teacher and knowing that I had a part in teaching children social and academic skills that would help them in our world.
Office Assistant (Accounts Payable) (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 3, 2013
Co-workers were friendly and inviting, learned about accounts payable, management was not very organized, the hardest part of the job was being divided between the accountants, the most enjoyable part was accomplishing the goals we set as a team.
Worked taking calls, faxes and emails for services offered by CEDA

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Harvey, IL – October 19, 2015
This was a nice working position. I learned some bookkeeping. Was able to register clients for medical assistance. Did data entry and filed. The best part of this job was helping others and meeting new people,
Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 28, 2015
The work place was overcrowded and created a very gloomy work day for me. I learned a lot from my supervisor who took me under her wing and showed me the ropes. I definitely miss my co-workers who shared wisdom and expertise.
Chemist (Former Employee) – Norris City, IL – February 4, 2015
typical day spent in lab analyzing trends in chemical treatment. I learned why power plants MUST clean their boilers regularly. Mid-management personnel were good, upper management were typical bean counters with little or no regard for the little guys. Coworkers were the greatest, plus very knowledgeable.
