Great Wiorking Enviroment
Community Living Instructor (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYDecember 29, 2016
Could be different from day to day, could be with the residents at the house which were Autistic kids, or you could be in the Med room to administrate medications. A day working with the residents is eventful and consists of getting them ready an off to school, getting them off the bus, doing a variety of different activities with the residents in the evening which could consist of reading a book, going for a walk, going to a sporting event, concert, etc...
Pros
The Residents they are the sweetest

A great place to work with individuals with Special Needs
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYAugust 4, 2016
A typical work day was greeting each individual as they entered the building assisting them as they worked on their daily goals, assisting them when needed, in getting ready to go out into the community for their volunteer jobs. Transporting them to their volunteer jobs, monitoring, role modeling and providing assistance when need to do the job successfully.
Eating lunch with the individuals and assisting them in finishing their goals for the day. Saying good by to each individual as they left to go home. Entering each goal the individual worked on for the day, what job they went to and the outcome of their work while at the job in the data base. After all the individuals were gone, sanitize all tables and chairs. 1 or 2 days a week transport 2 individuals home.

I learned it's very important to integrate individuals with Special needs into the community.

Management (Supervisors) needed to get out into the community with the individuals every known and than to really learn what they could and could not do.

My co-workers, once they learned the individuals they were ok. this job was all about the individuals and their needs

The hardest part of the job was when there was very little or no communication from the management (Supervisor) to the Direct Support Professionals.

The most enjoyable part of the job was when an individual achieved a goal or accomplished a task that they thought they couldn't do.
Pros
Seeing the indiviuals achieve their goals
Cons
short lunches and hardly no breaks unless you were a smoker

Increase salary scale for workers.
Community Living Instructor (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYMay 26, 2015
Entry-Level employees need to be paid more for the workload they encounter daily. The positive is that the clients are a joy to work with and try hard to live normal lives

Great team work with all CLIs
Community Living Instructor (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYFebruary 25, 2015
A hectic work environment. Learned patience in this company. Management needed more communication. My co-workers were always willing to help out when and wherever needed. The hardest part of this job: not a very functional layout of the home. Most enjoyable: a lot of teamwork and games with the residents
Pros

Cons
management team was undesirable

Great benefits,
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYNovember 17, 2014
A typical day would be data entry, filing, making phone calls, taking care of co workers questions and concerns regarding work related situations in different departments of the Agency. Was in charge of all procedures of check run for approximately 200 checks per week.
Learned to be more detailed in my work, The hardest part of my job I would say was to make sure the purchase orders were complete to enter in the system. Sometimes there was paper work not quit finished so I had to complete the purchase order as needed. Not that it was hard, it was more of a challenge which is what I love to do I loved seeing the residents come in to the business office.They are happy and appreciate life. I miss working with them. They are exceptional people.

I'm eager to get back in the working field and doing my best for your Company. Please give me the opportunity to show you.

Thank you for your time,
Pros
Bonuses
Cons
Can let you go anytime!

Productive, fun workplace
Relief Worker (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYOctober 8, 2014
The hardest part of this job is knowing that there are people who need so much help with simply day to day stuff. Some having family but do not support them in any way. The best thing about this job is knowing u helped someone in there time of need. As like any job the co-worker can be rude and some can be nice. I've learned that there are people in the world that cant do basic thing so i should not complain about the small things.
Pros
helping the consumers as they need it.
Cons
management wanting you to do your job and theirs.

Excellent job for students
Community Living Instructor (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYNovember 12, 2013
A great job to hold as a college student, it's flexibility in hours and atmosphere of teamwork allow easy integration into job sites and ability to continue working in between and during semesters. We care for individuals with mental and physical disabilities, providing a morally rewarding service. Management is concerned about staff who work there and provide direction and support. Your coworkers become close to you as you create a caring and safe environment for the individuals and team work is essential. The most difficult part of the job is the stress levels associated with direct support positions.
Pros
Meals provided free on shift, extensive benefits, large accrual of PTO hours
Cons
Mental and physical stress and exhaustion, low pay

Pros

Cons
paid time off and vacation are the same time
