Receptionist/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 15, 2017
I reviewed the company I was assigned to by JVS. JVS administered a senior job training program. I was assigned to CRDDC. It was run by a very entrepreneurial family who contributed magnanimously to the community. The small community center had a good culture. all remaining questions are about CRDDC. Very little contact with JVS. But their representative was supportive.
She showed intimate knowledge of the company and similar companies to which she assigned trainees.
A day in the busy period was very busy. When it was not busy, we went home early a few times.
Transition Specialist / Job Developer (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – February 10, 2017
Plenty of opportunities within the agency. Fun people, vacation time and Holiday vacation a plus. Located conveniently on Woodward in the Wayne State District.
A typical day is doing some computer work, filing, making phone calls, and community visits. Community outreach, participating in company events.
I learned how to correctly maintain community connections and relationships that I have created and how to more efficiently go about developing them.
Management treats staff well. Fridays are relaxed days. Hardest part is when our program starts and a day is filled with driving to and from locations, creating files, making necessary calls and visits, preparing classroom topics and activities, and still assisting other clients seeking employment.
Most enjoyable part of the job are the events where the camaraderie shines thru!...

I worked here many years ago after completing one of their Medical Office Skills programs,. The Manager at that time was great!! I was a young mother and a few times I had conflicts with my young child's school schedule. I was able to bring my child in and the staff were amazing in helping out. No complaints here.

Volunteer Assistant Tutor (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 11, 2015
Working as a volunteer at JVS Boston was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. I interacted with several employees of vastly different cultures and backgrounds, all working incredibly hard to advance their careers and better their lives, as well as the lives of their families. The staff from JVS Boston, as well as those who we were training, were all very kind, supportive, and genuine. I was never confused as to what my responsibilities were, and I always felt as though I was benefiting the community. I gained many beneficial skills from working in my particular volunteer environment. To this day, I still miss all of the wonderful people I had the chance to meet and learn from.
Productive and a good place to learn janitorial cleaning.

My Typical day was learning the right chemicals to use to clean center areas of a building starting from top to bottom, how to buff a floor, and everyone pulling together to get the job in a fun way with sing and sharing some life experiences. Jewish Vocational Services ran their company very professional. My co-workers and I were team players. There was nothing hard about this job and the most enjoyable was being able to attend other training that was offered.
The supervisor was very patient and easy to learn from.

Job Coach (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – March 28, 2014
Most of the time I am prompting the clients on how to be appropriate on the job. I assign tasks and give very specific directions on how to complete them. With another job coach we work as a team to make sure clients do not run out of work/ product. Clients work in various settings which include retail, janitorial, production and other volunteer sites. Being a job coach is very rewarding because I am a positive influence on the clients daily and they receive a sense of purpose. .
