never a dull moment
Child Care Worker (Current Employee) –  Wading River, NYJuly 14, 2017
It is a rewarding experience but the child care workers are under paid and are expected to do a lot. If you like fast paced and never knowing what is going to happen then this is the job for you. Sometime the cottage are under staffed and the residents take advantage of that. There will be times where the residents may cause damage to your car, or personal items and you may get hurt on this job. Overall, my coworkers are extremely helpful and we always have each others back. The agency as a whole looks great on paper but working there is a different story.
Pros
easy time off
Cons
lack of structure

Disgrace
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Wading River, NYDecember 30, 2016
This agency is full of disgraced higher ups, numerous lawsuits regarding inappropriate behavior and being treated poorly and unprofessionally. The program does not follow state guide lines and has no room for growth. The youth are. It monitored and the staff unqualified. Stay away

Hectic
Health Care Integrator (Current Employee) –  Hauppauge, NYDecember 20, 2016
It was an assembly line of paperwork. You didn't have time to think just do paperwork for the state. Rushed to take state test. It wasn't fun. You were to memorize form numbers but no rhyme or reason why you were doing using the forms.
Pros
Workshops
Cons
Managers saw dollar signs instead of people

enjoyable, inergetic
Child Care Worker (Current Employee) –  Wading River , NYAugust 25, 2015
A typical day at work is Monitoring children from the ages 0f 11 to 17. Waking children up in the morning preparing breakfast, and getting them ready for school. Making sure all logs are up to date. No restraints for the day.
The hardest part of the job is doing a restraint on a child because a child or yourself can get hurt.
The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the kids. Helping them help themselves. communicating with them.
Pros
Interacting with the children, Being able to communicate with them, Time
Cons
Having to do restarints

Caseworker (Current Employee) –  Wading River, NYAugust 6, 2015
Very difficult environment to work in. Not many ways to move up. The schedule is wonderful -9-5 as a social worker. Four weeks vacation a year that carry over. Sick time carries over. Co-workers are great but management is tough. Working with the kids is wonderful and rewarding but can be extremely challenging as well.

Overwhelming and lacks support
Case Planner (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMay 28, 2015
A lot of work and little support. Management is not very helpful. You are expected to make the job your life and it's a constant struggle to keep a balance between your personal life and work obligations.

Work place that is never dull
Adolescent Care Worker (Current Employee) –  Wading River, NYNovember 12, 2013
Work with youth in their daily routines. Mornings consist of waking up residents who have various psychological issues and developmental delays. Prompting them to take showers and showing them proper hygiene. Time management can be difficult for them in the morning, especially since most want to go back to sleep. There is constant dialogue with youth about any obstacles that they facing that morning and how to work through them. The staff work well off each other to ensure a smooth morning for everyone.
The most difficult part of the job is working with a resident who lacks any motivation or has no incentive to do what is asked of them, like getting up for school. When youth feel they have nothing to strive for it can be extremely difficult to get them motivated to complete the simplest of tasks.
The youth that are there are the most enjoyable part of the job. I find myself many times during my shift laughing and joking with them. Some kids are simply hilarious. It is always rewarding when they are excited to see you come in and work or when they leave the facility and call you to say thank you for helping them.
