Very demanding and meticulous job. Nevertheless, a rewarding position
Economic Support Specialist (Former Employee), Jonesboro, GAAugust 4, 2014
Pros: helping customers with the services that they need.
Cons: demanding work with little pay.
I enjoyed working at this job. It was high sprung, demanding, tidious, and fulfilling all in one. I learned to appreciate having a job and all of the essentials that I need to live life. My supervisor was very hands on and taught me how to be even more in tuned to those less fortunate. My co-workers were fun to work with. The hardest part of my job – more... was to deny a client that I felt needed the services. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping people to get the services that they needed and helping them to understand that life is what we make it. Seeing the customer happy. – less

Case Manager (Current Employee), Decatur, GAJuly 13, 2014
Pros: great work environment
Cons: having to deal with openly upset/angry client
Typically, an employee would work his/her own case load; however, often times, one has to deal with customer service/walk-in where one may have to see a client.
Great work environment. Morale boosters are frequent and often the suggestion of the employees and conducted by employees.
Friendly environment with workers who are willing to assist if needed.

Wonderful Job Doing Something Important
Child Welfare Specialist I (Former Employee), Sayre, OkJuly 6, 2014
Pros: insurance, abundant training
Cons: 24 hour on-call, hard deadlines to meet.
I loved working in Child Welfare, I had wonderful colleges and supervisors who knew their jobs and identified well with their workers. I met some of the most amazing children and parents who really worked hard with what they had to make the best life for their children. The hard days always meant more to me than the easiest days because the hard days – more... meant we were changing lives. My co-workers always made me feel like part of the team, even when I had just started didn't know much. – less

PRIVATE ASSISTANT (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 6, 2014
Pros: the training is free to the workers.
Cons: healthcare
A place where senior citizens and people with small disabilities can move around and enjoy their lives with little to no assistance at all .Being a Private Assistant can be rewarding you see yourself in these seniors eyes and the conversation can sometimes be informative. Management creates fun activities on a daily basis for everyone who lives there. – more... Co- workers are not seen as much because of the person you are assisting there is no time but to focus on the person who need you at that time. I would say the hardest is part of the job is when someone dies or you see that they have no family or they just not dealing with family members.The most enjoyable part of this job is laughing and being there to assist our customers. – less
