Assistant to the Executive Director (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – August 15, 2016

Heap/Energy slave (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – May 10, 2016
Stressful, advancement only for friends or brown nosers, you don't have to have experience in order to become a supervisor. The funding is spent frivolously, you have to be careful to whom you communicate with, The gossip makes you advance through the ranks. I have seen them hire inexperienced and then finally fire you six months later when they find out someone else has been doing all your work for you. Also they hire temps keeping them in limbo for over a year and promise them a position. They demote you if your getting older in age over 50+ years old, within the company If you get a interview opportunity it's based on a score, it's not on what you know in experience. Not worth the pay, and the company needs a whole restructuring from main office to the 19th street location.
Potluck, close to home, paycheck was small
Demanding co workers, two faced back talking, pretending they are on your side
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – February 13, 2016
i have been with this company for 25 years, i have seen births, weddings, death of loved ones, employed by CAPK, and family members of CAPK, when something would happen to any member of this agency, we all came together and fought together to support, for betterment, for encouragement. i have not seen that happen in the past 10 years, it is all about who can get further, Being proactive in this agency used to mean an accomplishment, not any longer.
Family Services Specialist (Current Employee) – Fresno – September 21, 2014
Any given day, I check voice mail, return calls, update files, enroll families, process data entry, screen applicants, meet with families. I work independently, but have access to management, if needed. Work great with coworkers. Hardest part of job is the unpredictability, this is also the best part. It is never boring.

The most enjoyable part of the job is helping children and families succeed when they thought they couldn't accomplish their goals. Being a supervisor and being able to mentor and coach others is a rewarding experience.
