Receptionist (Current Employee) – Bluffton, SC – April 20, 2016
A typical day at work consist of greeting guest, answering phone calls, tending to the needs of residents, managing the front desk, completing sales transactions, arranging ballroom for the event of the night, preparing copies of newsletters and calendars, and aiding to manager. I learned how to manage time efficiently, deal with all kinds of people, make rational decisions on my own, and to complete multiple task in a timely manner. I couldn't ask for a better manager or co-workers. We are definitely like a family and we would do anything for one another. The hardest part of my job is enforcing our pool hour rules to the children and telling them they have to leave at a specific time depending on the day of the week The most enjoyable part of my job is communicating with the residents and making them smile.
Answering crisis line and providing support in a shelter setting. Participants share their stories and open up a very tender part of their lives to you. It is a very powerful experience and I am thankful for having had the opportunity to be a part of it.
dietary aide (Former Employee) – Toms River, NJ – January 24, 2016
I had been working for them almost three years. I really enjoyed working with the kitchen people and of course my dietary director. I learned many new things daily to keep the work environment safe. Also, worked well with others around the building.
The hardest part of the job was that I was the only deaf person that worked there and faced many challenges than hearing people does. For instance, the fire alarm went on and I didn't hear. I had people from the kitchen department let me know and what went on. I had my manager let me know what went on and what things I aware of. So, that way I didn't have to be lost in the communication with hearing people.
I enjoyed working with kitchen people. We worked as the team and almost felt like family. Free food, obviously.
Sport instructor (Former Employee) – Lakeland – January 17, 2016
Would be such a good job! Ruined by sports management! Worked up to 14 hours in a day! Loved what I was doing but always low staffed because people always left because of how badly the place is ran!! Some days I was close to tears as they would put on back to back sessions from 9 o'clock to 8 o'clock at night! If it was properly ran by people who actually cared about people then it would be a good place to work
- cleaned and fed the animals. - how to deal with timid animals. - The co-workers would be working with me and helping me with adoptions. - Seeing the animals not get adopted and having to see animals come in beaten up. - Seeing how happy the animals was after being adopted.
This was a high paced, high energy environment. I enjoyed success wearing many hats and being directly involved with the growth of the business. Each day I would jump from one job to another in a second. I was able to assist the marketing department which advance my skills a great deal. The co-workers were amazing and ready to work. My management team relied on my and allowed to me to meet challenging goals and allowed to me to grow in my position. The most difficult part of the job was staring from scratch however this was also the most rewarding.
Effective Personal Care Home, clients and family members were satisfied.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Bingham Farms, MI – January 14, 2014
This was by far the best job. The people were lovely and fun. They genuinely cared for you and wanted you to do your best. I learned a lot about the human factor and honestly some things I didn't because a lot of walk ins came in fearing for their life. But it was a great learning experience and development for myself.
