Program Administrator (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – January 2, 2016
You will learn a lot about the economic challenges the African American community is facing, but will find that grant funded programs are more about meeting grant requirements than accomplishing real change. The turnover is ridiculously high whether voluntary or involuntary - which speaks volumes about the company culture!!!!! The average tenure of any level employee over the past 2-3 years has been 12 months! The company culture is one that does not invest in the employees. There are absolutely NO opportunities for advancement. The only pro is the seasonal time off and the health benefits. Really do some good research, soul searching, and prayer before considering this company.

would arrive at job site around 7 and from there we would begin to clean and set tables up for the first wave of children. We would then prepare breakfast for them, and later, lunch would be served. in between we would do anything that was asked of us whether it being to do extra cleaning, plan events for the children, watch them, etc.
Traveled to approximately nine child care sites weekly, to monitor the child and the facility.
Health Coordinator (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – November 25, 2014
I visited a designated child care agency to inspect the center and make sure the agency was up to code and child's medical needs were met. The hardest part of the job was the unpredictable weather at times but I so enjoyed the staff and the children.
