Job pay does not match the job responsibilities. The agency does not believe in raises even if you're going above and beyond.

No clue what to say
Direct Care Staff (Former Employee) –  Ivel, KYSeptember 5, 2017
I really don't have much to say other than they do not like to pay for what you have to put up with or deal with under the circumstances of the individuals.

Caring for your elders & children <3
In home caregiver (Former Employee) –  Craig, AKJuly 24, 2017
Community Connections was the best job for me! I loved being able to help my elders. Each client was different for each other. One client could need help with household chores. Another could just want someone to sit and visit, have some laughs and play cards. Working with children was a blast as well. I was able to plan the day, take them to a beach on sunny days or stay inside and plan arts&crafts on the rainy days. I truly miss being there to help others...

Making a difference in the lives you serve
Recovery Navigator (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 19, 2017
The job can be stressful if one is not organized and understanding that it cannot be done in 40 hours. Documentation and productivity are expected. The turnover is high due to the requirements. It's hard to give the clients we serve the attention needed due to high demands; however, this is the job and it is not for everyone but it can be done. Job/Life balance is tough as well. It's probably best for someone just out of college who does not have a growing family. These parameters that I have listed are for case management.
Pros
Population served
Cons
Staff that is burned out

Good clients, terrible management
Direct Care Staff (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDJune 2, 2017
While the work itself is rewarding, it certainly doesn't pay well. I signed up to do overnight shifts and they said that would work. What they don't really tell you is that you're expected to work a weekend. A full weekend. You get there on Saturday and don't leave until Monday morning, and this is on top of working 16 hour shifts during the week.

The training is terrible. Luckily this wasn't the first time I had worked in this field, because without prior knowledge I wouldn't have been able to do anything. The paperwork is never properly explained, the routines are never gone over, and the supervisors don't help. They'll just tell you to ask a different over worked staff to do "more" training, without telling the other staff beforehand.
Pros
Clients themselves were enjoyable.
Cons
No breaks, terrible supervisors, limited training, verbal abuse.

Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 23, 2017
Working at Community Connections allows you to really help people who struggle with many issues in DC, but pay for case workers, and staff is low. Employees should be compensated more for the work they do with better benefits.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons

Horrible Place
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  SE, Washington, DCMay 15, 2017
It's a mental health facility. No one really cares about the clients except for the over worked case managers. They care more about billable hours to Medicare. There is no training, no support. They are quick to get rid of you if you complain about any issue. And the CEO needs to retire, she is not a warm person.
Pros
Lovable clients
Cons
Management sucks
