Rewarding job that helps older Americans re-enter the workplace
Recruiter (Current Employee), 120 W. Danville St., South Hill, Va.June 28, 2013
Pros: mileage reimbursement
Cons: limited resources, so i can't help more individuals
I start my day at 9:00 A.M. I make phone calls to participants, host sites and potential employers. I schedule meetings to sign up new participants. They are then placed in host sites to receive training. I sign up non profit agencies to become host sites. I set up training for participants at area agencies. I make appointments for participants to interview – more... with employers.
The hardest part of my job, is knowing my participants interview for a job and a younger person ends up with that job! I enjoy placing my participants in jobs. They have trained hard for a position and when they finally get a job, that makes this job exceptionally gratifying. – less

NCOA is a temporay placement organization.
Receptionist (Current Employee), Wheeling, WVFebruary 26, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: no benefits
As a receptionist, answering the phone and greeting people is a big part of my day. I have interacted with a variety of people from the homeless to CEO's. People want to work, they want to feel needed, and NCOA helps fulfill this need. It's very rewarding to help someone get on the program. I will take information needed to pass on to our Employment – more... Facilitators who meet with potential participants. Having a good rapport with my co-workers is very important and I have been lucky in that area. I work with a great group of people.

The hardest part of the job can also be the most enjoyable part of the job; when talking with people who are down on their luck, from a widow with no money coming in to a man who's been homeless and is trying to get back on his feet. Another aspect is when someone wants to get on the program and they make too much money and don't quality. – less

Hard work and innovation not recognized
DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS (Former Employee), Washington, DCMay 14, 2012
NCOA is a great organization but suffers from decision-making at the top that does not take into account the hard work and potential growth for the organization by those below the "senior" level."

The CEO is dedicated and experienced. However, those working directly for him are not always focused on what's really best for the organization and the people – more... it serves. – less
