A busy office with hundreds of patients who expected a high level of care by the clerks as well as the nurses.
Housing Counselor (Former Employee) – Hazleton, PA – February 24, 2016
Schedule appointments for patients to follow their continuing care plan involving their Cholesterol and Hypertension. Accommodate patients according to their needs at the request of the nurse who maintained their follow up care. Pull files for the 15 nurses and the 2 Doctors on staff. Follow up phone calls to confirm appointments with patients and reschedule if necessary. Answer incoming calls for an office with hundreds of patients who were in the 32BJ union. Worked well with my co-workers and we were able to count on each other for assistance when necessary. Doctor's were very pleasant and the some nurses pulled their own files. The hardest part of the job for me was probably dealing with patient's renins and finger sticks.

If you are looking to work for an organization that is ethical and really cares about people, this place is not it. They call themselves a not-for-profit but yet all they care about is money. The supervisors lack experience and education. Many of them do not even have an associate degree but they think they know more than their staff whom are highly educated in a number of different programs. They will not promote you from within and will actually try to demote you and get ride of you if they don't like you. If you are liked, someone will create a position for you. The administration call themselves "the cabinet" as if they are better than those who actually do the ground work. On top of that, pay can be pretty low and micromanagement is outrageous. You also always have to worry about the funding for your program being cut. Look elsewhere if your smart, if you are desperate, make it a temporary thing but if your on unemployment keep looking...........
management, program cuts, 30 min lunch breaks, low pay, no staff appreciation
This is a very productive, fun and professional organization to work at
Wilkes-Barre, PA (Current Employee) – Caseworker – November 4, 2011
You get a sense of fulfillment from working for this organization, as you are helping low-income individuals and families, such as with shelter (making sure they will not be homeless), heating assistance and food. This organization has a wonderful staff and management as well. I feel incredibly lucky to have had the experience of working here so far.
Excellent opportunity to work with disadvantages teenagers.
Construction Program Instructor (Former Employee) – Troy, NY – February 10, 2014
I was a construction teacher for a program that employed disadvantaged youth. From ages 18-24, both men and woman were under my tutelage. I would order materials through purchase orders, then show in great detail the order and execution of the projects at hand, that all revolved around a 2 family house that we gutted completely and refinished to a working 2 family home. The program director, the other construction teacher and the guidance counselor were all the most amazing people geared towards making a difference with our youth. I loved working there. The hardest part of the job was the emotions of hearing the rough up bringing that some these kids had to endure. The best part was seeing the same kids rise above there problems, against all odds, and become hard working men and women who are doing right by there families.
i feel i made a difference in the lives of these people.
funding for program was lost, and i was forced to move on.
social services (Former Employee) – troy ny – January 11, 2013
When I applied I was told one thing and then when I went back in to sign paper work it was a lower amount. i told them I had a driving infraction and they said that it was ok. I worked for about 2 weeks and then they called me into the office and said they had to let me go because of the infraction I told them about and which they said it was ok. Since then I have re applied 8 years later and went in for an interview. Never heard back from them about it. I called and no response. very unprofessional.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – People helping People CEO – December 13, 2012
Well I only worked part time, so my hours were 3;30 to 7;30. I came in a little bit early cause i always follow the motto to be on time is to be late and to be early is to be on time. Once all the kids were dismissed for the day myself and my other co workers could start cleaning all the classrooms. We had to dust, vacuum, wipe off the desks,and clean all the chalk boards.
