Training Officer 2 (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 14, 2016
Overall, fantastic job. Training and assisting people to grow is phenomenal. You are able to work with caring people doing a job/career that is there to improve the quality of life. I learned to provide better training and development. My initial managers were supportive and sought to better the employees. One potential area of concern is that this position is highly visible and in a government agency, which means political appointments. In one year, I saw my entire training team replaced because of an appointee who created a hostile work environment. Eventually this person was removed but the agency still has not recovered what was lost. The hardest part of the job that I faced was partly the above, but during this time I was expected to do the work I was assigned plus the training of 3 other instructors.
State benefits, fair salary, teaching good people, great teams.
Bureaucracy, politics, poor human resources, potential for disasterous management

Kelly Services CDS Data Entry (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 29, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of me reviewing faxes for approval or denial of governmental assistance. If approved, clients were able to move into the next step of the assistance process by having a meeting set up with an assistance manager. My Coworkers were always helpful especially when my system would be down and I was unable to complete a task without a certain program.
Supervisor, Administrator Kylah Ross (Former Employee) – 4000 N. Central Ave. Ste.720, Phoenix, AZ – August 18, 2015
Training is an important part of social work. I was very happy to be part of it. My co-workers, for the most part were great, the site needs to be enlarged to accommodate the growth of the unit. It was crowded. Need to focus on the support staff needs more in order to retain good support staff.
Employee Benefits were good.
Constantly changing management meant for inconsistent management.

Program Services Evaluator IV (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 15, 2014
A typical day at work was managing staff and assisting customers with benefits to supplement their needs such as medical, food stamps and cash assistance. Co-workers and employees were a joy to be around with all different types of personalities and back rounds. The hardest part of the job was denying customers benefits do to not being qualified but still needing help. The most enjoyable was helping customer obtain benefits and knowing they can get by until they find more stable employment. It was also enjoyable assisting my staff and helping them with their duties and being there to support and encourage them. Working with a diverse group of people teaches you to have patience and acceptance of different backgrounds and cultures.
dead end job, denying customers when they need help
Intake Specialist (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – May 25, 2014
I ran training classes 3-4 times per day. Held 1 on 1 interviews with individuals looking for work. Logged their weekly job search reports. I worked on a team of 11 people who were all very eager to help me learn the job. I enjoyed working with the clients and help to motivate them in looking for work. I would have to help get them back on track if they didn't send in their weekly reports. The hardest part was when the clients didn't have any desire to look for work and I would have to explain to them that they could lose their government benefits if they didn't comply.
great shift hours
the training was very short and there was not a lot of help from management.
