Production Secretary (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 14, 2017
Work was intense and a lot of hours but my team was amazing and supportive and I enjoyed working on a respected show. I learned a lot as there are many loud personalities on a show and I have to work with them all.
English Teacher (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – December 18, 2016
The school has its challenges, and has room to grow. It is emotionally demanding, and often leaves one despondent. Girls are generally easy to get along with, though they do bring their teenage issues. The biggest challenge however, is the management and its inability to address the glaring cultural issues that exist.
Program Facilitator (Former Employee) – Owensboro, KY – August 10, 2016
Girls Incorporated is an excellent place for young girls to grow and learn life skills they do not get at school. My main responsibility as a program facilitator was to create and lead activities for the girls to participate in every day. Alongside that, I also had to manage bill pay from the parents, document all kinds of paperwork dealing with behavior and attendance, open and clean the facility, and supervise the girls at all times. The best part of the job was the connection I made with the girls, but the co-workers and lack of decent pay is what made me leave. Other co-workers would not communicate important information to the rest of us, they would break company rules, and show up late almost every day without punishment. When these issues were reported to the campus manager and eventually the CEO on multiple occasions, they were neglected. The result of this neglect led to only the few responsible co-workers to pick up the slack. With better communication, organization, and co-workers who take the job seriously, it would be a dream job.

Make Shift Employee (Clerical Assistant) (Former Employee) – Marvell, AR – August 3, 2014
A typical day at work were meetings. I learned lots of things. Certain management was good. Co-workers were great. The hardest thing was trying to getting things done under pressure. The most enjoyable part waking up and doing it all over again.
Took care of daily A/p and A/R. Made sure all the payroll was up to date. I learned that it is more about team dynamics then actual job performance. My co-workers were the hardest part of the job. It was as if steering a boat through complicated sailing channels.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – FL – March 3, 2014
The ability to grow within while learning to broaden your own life worth is priceless. Watching the youth of today grow and develop into our future of tomorrow and the accomplishments in their reach is limit less. In order to make life a quality purpose work with the youth of today and watch them grow from the knowledge within their environment from all avenues of life. It’s hard to digest that the children we work with today will one day be the movers and shakers of the world. The mystery is what and where their accomplishment in life will be later in life is part of the thrill of learning but most of all the thrill of teaching.
