Fair job. Phone calls coming in constantly. Heavy caseload of clients
Social Services Specialist (Former Employee), Muskogee, OK – May 2, 2013
Pros: enjoyed assisting clients.
Cons: not consistently trained. (my supervisor was out for six weeks with surgery).
Department of Human services had numerous trainings and conferences that I attended to learn my job. I resigned from DHS to take a job at Department of Veterans Affairs. I believe the Social Services department needed to be reorganized as you were expected to assist your client if they came into the office (walk-in, no appointment) and answer the phone – more... (which rang consistently) with clients with questions.Each SSSpecialist had a caseload of 600-800 clients. I enjoyed the supervisor I had and my co-workers. The hardest part of this job was not having enough time to do your job thoroughly and not enough time to ever get "caught up." I enjoyed helping the clients apply for SNAP, Soonercare and housing. For the most part they were very appreciative of you helping them. – less

The Department of Human Services is a good place to work because at the end of the day, your goal is to help out the needy people in the community. Everyone knows each other throughout the various departments and we all help each other. Your co-workers are like your second family because you spend so much time with them. The hardest part of the job – more... is when you have to deal with people in dire situations and you are not able to assist them and of course when you can help them, the feeling that you made a difference in their lives is the greatest reward. – less

The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with are very nice and most would do – more... anything to help. – less

Pros: contributing to programs which benefit the general public, self-awareness highlighting individual value, variation of day-to-day duties
Cons: fluctuating schedule, threat of financial cuts to program
The Department of Human and Rehabilitation Services provides a valuable resource to victims of stroke throughout Illinois. In this position I am responsible for administering personal care as it is necessary to my employer (person in which I am aiding). This position has given me an opportunity to hone in on my interpersonal skills and work directly – more... with others while contributing to a progressive organization that works to help maintain the living standards of Illinois stroke residents. I enjoy this job very much and find the work done exceptionally valuable. In turn, I am proud to be involved in an organization that works with the under-served and marginalized who need additional help but have very little access to resources which provide such help. I feel as though I have made a difference, and continue to make a difference every day, through working with the Department of Human and Rehabilitation Services. – less
