Best interest of the individuals and staff, productive, fun-filled environment
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Yonkers, NY – October 3, 2013
A typical day at work was like being in the middle of your living room with family well minus the rules and regulations. I learned about teamwork, laughter, friendship amongst my coworkers. I learned about respecting others inspite of their differences but to embrace their differences and appreciate my own. My director is stern but she has your best interest at heart even in HR they do their best to help you find alternatives that can help you better your performance at work and in life. The hardest part of the job for me was parting ways with a good set of people. The most enjoyable part of the job was the staff, going out with the individuals, birthday club for the individuals, cooking group, bbq's, trips to the mall, baseball, dance group, zumba, etc...
free food, trips, excercise
mostly the pay and the lack of raises
