Pros: varying daily job duties, pension, and vacation and sick time
Cons: long hours, unpredictable schedule
There is no such thing as a typical day with this job. Days may include home visits with families, children and foster parents, attending court hearings, writing reports, contacting service providers to receive reports on clients, and documenting everything. I have learned a lot about court procedings and community referrals. Awesome and helpful coworkers. Some supervisors are great and some are burnt out and sleep in their office. The best part of the job is bringing families together and the worst is tearing them apart.
