Productive and a great learning environment for all social workers
Social Work Intern (Former Employee), Greenwood, MSMarch 28, 2015
This job helped me to become a more competent social worker. It taught me how to handle real life situations. The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to connect and learn from other experienced social workers. The management was so awesome!! The supervisor was so educated and professional and never handled situations lightly, she always did a great job at everything she went to do.

Working for the City of Chattanooga was a huge learning experience for me.
Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNMarch 10, 2015
Pros: the ability to meet, greet, and assist at least 68% of the city of chattanooga.
Cons: accepted employment with the idea that i would become a permanent employee when training was over.
While working with the human services the most important thing for me within a typical work day was the ability to remain positive and upbeat no matter what happens. As the front desk coordinator, I was generally the first person the clients had to talk to whether by phone or physically. Most of our clients have had hard situations and even harder lives. My main job was to prepare them for what they would need during appointments, job training courses, or further assistance paying their bills. The work team environment was one of the best I've seen in a long time. One thing that my team was constantly aware of; I'm always calm even in potentially stressful situations. They always trusted me to make the right decisions The hardest part of the job was making the choice to leave. I told my manager, she cried but said she was happy for me because she thinks that I deserve the best.

Very rewarding place to work
CEO/OWNER - Home of Second Chances (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCNovember 14, 2014
This was a very rewarding position and fast past. as a Ceo of a Mental Health Company you had to be flexible, knowledgeable and willing to learn and make quick decisions. The growth of the company was your responsibility , therefore you had to make sure you had a strong team and people who were dedicated to helping others.

Productive and fun place to work
Vocational Rehabilitation Technician (Current Employee), Virgin IslandsAugust 18, 2014
A typical day at work is assisting students with transitioning form school to work . making appointments .updating clients reports .and every Thursday is socialization with the clients

I have learned that every day I come to work is a new adventure with my clients and that they are people just me I see the ability and not the disability

Management at times is difficult as far getting all the resource that is needed to run the day to day activity of the program but somehow we all make it work at the end of the day the client is the top priority
My co-worker is like my family .We work very well together

the hardest part of my job is also the most enjoyable part of my job it the clients that we serve I have been doing this for years now this is my calling . My clients make me want to come into work everyday . I really love what I do .I cant imagine doing anything else

Challenging and rewarding workplace
Residential Counselor (Current Employee), West Chester, PAMay 13, 2014
Pros: helping people
Cons: no official breaks
There is no typical day at work for me, I work long days as the only person on weekend shifts. I am proficient and trusted enough to work shifts without an on site supervisor. My day deals with six different women in all walks of life, each with their own set of mental health disorders, trying to live together, get along and complete their personal goals. I've learned that everyone responds differently to different approaches and if I'm attentive enough I can figure out the best strategies to help all of the women I work with. The hardest part of my job is getting others to realize their potential and self worth after they have had continuous set backs and rejections. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with someone and they finally "get it" and start maximizing the resources available to them and eventually are able to transition out of assisted living and into the community.

great program for the adults
Program Specialist (Former Employee), Johnstown, PAMarch 20, 2014
Every day the people would come into the program and either attend an outing that I may have had scheduled or they would do activities at their stations.
I learned that having a connection with the families was a priority in this job. I was blessed to have so many families eagerly involved in their children's lives. It was very hard to make that connection at first, but the families earned my trust and were supportive of any ideas or concerns I may have had.
My co-workers were horrible to work with. I was the youngest and they were 40yrs old and above, been with the company for more than 15 years. I was their boss and they did no like change. I did not have support from management to find ways how we could compromise and make the work environment a positive atmosphere.
The most enjoyable part would be just spending some one on one time with the people. They all love life and they made you realize that life isn't all that bad. No matter what, they always had a smile on their face for you.
