Worse place to work EVER (troy, ny)
case worker (Former Employee), Troy, NYApril 19, 2013
Cons: management, program cuts, 30 min lunch breaks, low pay, no staff appreciation
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 – more... 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........... – less

unprofessional
social services (Former Employee), troy nyJanuary 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 – more... 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. – less

A typical day at work
Volunteer (Former Employee), People helping People CEODecember 13, 2012
Pros: i liked my co wokers
Cons: no breaks.
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 – more... all the chalk boards. – less

This is a very productive, fun and professional organization to work at
Wilkes-Barre, PA (Current Employee), CaseworkerNovember 4, 2011
Pros: one-hour lunches, breaks when needed
Cons: no over-time, but only due to budget cuts
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.
