Family based and Educational Support
Center Secretary (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INJuly 8, 2014
Pros: nice pay with benefits, paid holidays and vacations.
Cons: not a lot of manger support, lack of proper communication
I typical day at work as Center Secretary was very basic and second nature to me. Assist families, staff, and the community with various task, completing applications for enrollment, answering phones, assisting/directing families to the proper location. I've learned how to several utilize several accuracy web base tools. PROMIS entering in attendance, – more... Brigance Screening, and Home Visit. I also learned how to purchased supplies need for the agency using EReq system. Although I've had several different mangers while employed with Family Development Services, upper manager lack encouraging support in training new employees once placed in the position outside of new hire and annually training that are move quickly. Co-worker were support and helpful at times. The hardest part of my job was being transferred to different locations after building report with families, co-works, and students. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing lives being changed and helping the children learn positive behavioral with positive actions. – less

Slavery/Unorganized Agency

Pros: enjoying the children, and trying to better thier situation.
Cons: the agency treats you like dirt.
The Agency Did not believe in advancement. They change peoples titles and make them salary, and work them like slaves. They will not give appreciation to their employees and will always talk down to them. Please do not fall for their first impressions.

A agency that gives services to low income families
Secretary/Dispatcher (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INJuly 19, 2013
Pros: annual bonus
Cons: healthcare
As part of our organization’s name, the word “family” signifies the important role parents and caregivers play in their child’s development. We believe that parents are a child’s first and best teacher. The most enjoyable part of my day is seeing the parents and children and interacting with each of them in some way. I have alot of outgoing co-workers – more... that really care about the well-being and the knowledge of the young children. – less
