A meaningful job
Attendant Care Worker/Adult (Former Employee), Wichita, KSJuly 17, 2014
If you are looking for a job that will really help others, this is a good place to work. As an Adult Attendant Care Worker, I helped others work on goals, get basic needs and was there to listen to them when they needed it. Along with all that, I learned how to fill out the necessary paperwork involved and developed good time management skills.

workplace that helps people in need develop a sense of comfort.
Intern (Former Employee), Morgantown, WVFebruary 23, 2014
Pros: build close relationships
Cons: wanted more hands on activities with clients
I worked behind a desk and facilitated group meetings sometimes. People would come in and use the resources the facility had available. Most people came in looking for help with finding a job. Later in the day group meetings were held. The topics could be about anything. This experience was very helpful in learning how to work with groups. It taught – more... me how to handle group disappointment and frustrations within the group. It also taught me how to ask for verbal feedback and take it as a chance to learn. The management was great. I felt comfortable asking my manager and my co-workers for help. The hardest part of the job was maintaining group discussions but it was the most helpful part as well. The most enjoyable part of the job was building a close relationship with the clients and hearing their reports of improvements. – less

Making a difference in people's lives who are less fortunate
Respite/Skill Builder (Current Employee), Middletown, NYAugust 10, 2013
Pros: a little bit of flexibility with scheduling to see clients
Cons: no benefits with being a part time employee
A typical day as a respite/skill builder requires me to travel to a clients home and take them on various outings based on their liking. Sometimes a trip to the mall, a trip to get something to eat, or a trip to the park may be a productive day. When working with anyone with special needs such as low functioning autistic can be the hardest part. Learning – more... compulsions, and what to do in various situations can be difficult. Another difficult part of the job is the wear and tear it takes on my own personal vehicle and not getting reimbursed for damages to clothing if a child/adult destroys it. The most enjoyable part of the job is to provide outlets to kids/adults that they normally wouldn't get in the care of home. Providing activities gives the clients something to look forward to everyday. – less

It was a very rewarding experience.
Internship (Former Employee), Ithaca, NYJune 7, 2013
Everyday was completely new. I would walk in and greet the kids that are part of the program along with the coordinator. From there, we would ask the kids and teenagers what they would want to do. If we had to split into groups, we would in order to let the participants be able to do their own hobbies. All of the coordinators were awesome. They were – more... flexible, understanding, and knew how to approach and handle all situations. The hardest part of the job however was when one of the children would get out of hand a little bit. At the same time, that was the most enjoyable part of my time there because that is when I would get to learn the most. I was able to gain experience with something I wasn't every familiar with before. – less

Great place to work
Residential Assistant/Outreach Support Worker (Former Employee), Springfield, MAMarch 26, 2013
Pros: free lunch breaks
Cons: an abundance of personal and vacation time.
At MHA, I learned how to balance my work life with my home and school life. I learned the true meaning of person centered care and compassion. I enjoyed my co-workers and meeting the needs of the consumers we served. The hardest part was leaving work at work and maintaining boundaries because they are human with needs and feelings as well.
