Stressful job, but rewarding
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), Bellevue, WAApril 14, 2014
A stressful yet rewarding job, knowing you could help someone.

Being on the phone all day can be very tiring and burnt out, especially times when you feel like you are not appreciated by the other recipient. I just keep a smile, and a positive attitude. You never know the other person's story, so always hope for the best. Sometimes, people will be – more... mean, but kill them with kindness. – less

strange culture
Bus Driver (Former Employee), Redmond WAAugust 8, 2013
Pros: great medical insurance
Cons: strict company heiarchy
The culture in the transpiration department is very stiff and fairly formal. There is a pretense of openness, in reality it is"my way or the highway." HR department holds a tough grip on all operations. The hierarchy of the company is clearly defined with not much upward mobility. Drivers feel they are treated unfairly by management. Drivers frequently – more... complain about job conditions but do not feel able to feel heard by management. Mutual distrust between management and drivers. Management uses punitive punishments at will (driver suspension.) Firing of drivers is (almost) a weekly occurrence.There is no loyalty toward lower level employees, high loyalty for upper management. – less

Awesome agency
Employment Specialist (Former Employee), Kirkland, WAJuly 24, 2013
Pros: great team, flexible hours
Cons: low mileage reimbursement, tons of travel
Good agency, but the Employment Specialist position requires a LOT of traveling and the pay isn't commensurate with the amount of work that is required. Additionally, the turnover rate for this position is particularly high and because the job is so particular, it's difficult to transfer those skills over to a different position within Hopelink.

Face to Face contact with people with the opportunity to help them in any way I was willing to reach out.
Senior Services Outreach Case Manager (Former Employee), Henderson, NVJuly 15, 2013
Pros: satisfaction of helping people in need.
Cons: no cons what-so-ever
Daily routine consisted of evaluating clients for rental and/or any assistance through grant-based and government based programs. Counseled clients on their living situations and/or any life altering issues that may be present. Visitation at assisted living or senior community each reach was a part of my weekly duty and community outreach was regularly – more... fit into my schedule for the benefit of any individuals seeking help. – less

Could be a fantastic job if management did not constantly interfere and micro manage everything.
Intake/Eligibility Specialist (Former Employee), Henderson, NVSeptember 26, 2012
Pros: most clients were there for the right reasons, but there were some that were just trying to milk the system.
Cons: vacation time accrued was cut in half, breaks and lunches were constantly to make sure we didn't cheat the system, which we didn't but management felt most employees needed this.
A place geared to helping individuals with rent and electricity payments. As Eligibility Specialist was required to conduct eligibility requirements for at least 50 individuals per day. Learned that management had unrealistic goals for this position as the person who held this position prior was only required to make 30 calls per day. Individuals would – more... be scheduled with Case Workers and were told what documents were required for their meeting. Often times, they would not bring required paperwork stating they were never told - this was incorrect so I was blamed for this which resulted in repeat visits. The co-workers felt they were doing a worthwhile job but were never appreciated for their time and effort. Management was not understanding what actually was required of job as the new manager had never done this job so she relied totally on paperwork review. I loved my job as I was passionate about helping people but found that we were not allowed to give all only the minimum required. – less
