N/A (Former Employee) – St. Paul, MN – January 25, 2017
A group of adolescent girls will come together and talk about their fears and their ambitions and attend multiple courses to this group and go on field trips and talk about ways to prevent teenage pregnancy. And Neighborhood house is just a place that gives kids a place to come to receive resources and help adults get their education on track.
I worked for my neighbors, baby sitting, nannying and cleaning
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA and Lakewood, WA – February 3, 2017
Consistent care of children, cooking, cleaning and giving them what they needed. I learned self discipline. I learned how to be punctual and showed up on time and never late. I also would put them to bed on time made sure they had a set eating schedule. The management wasn't the best, considering the parents usually didnt keep to a payment schedule or a very consistant time for me to stop working. And the other babysitter and I didnt get along very well. And i had brought it up without any change. The work place environment was quiet chaotic and challenging considering the yelling children. I would say the hardest part of the job would be dealing with angry kid when they needed to go to sleep. However the most enjoyable part of the job in my opinion would be how sweet the children could be. I also loved cleaning and doing the dishes.
Helper (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – October 1, 2016
Working at this place was truly remarkable. I learned more about culture than I ever have. People who come to this food bank, also come from a diverse background. While I was working there I met Arabs, Chinese, Russians, Ukrainians. Most of the customers and staff are very kind. The place is well manged and a typical day at work is stacking shelves, moving fifty pound boxes, and cleaning the place. Once the place opens, you must lead customers through the place and make sure they get everything they need. Unfortunately this place is very underfunded and there aren't enough staff. Sometimes you have to work more than usual.
Free food, nice people, long hours, supportive staff
Short on funding, unreliable volunteers, customers who can't speak english
Business Office Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 16, 2016
Neighborhood House will always have a special place in my heart. The work that goes on there is extraordinary. The programs Neighborhood House provides benefit many of today's youth who deserve a chance at having a life rather than ending up another statistic on the streets. I am very proud to say I started my career at Neighborhood House at a very young age and have continued to grow with the agency. Sadly I have reached my time there and I am ready to continue on a different path.
Balance of work and home life, also the people I worked with

Some coworkers are not there for you to be friends with. Supervise the children and do what you are supposed to do at work. don't fraternize with supervisors. They are not your friends. The hardest part of the job was dealing with other coworkers. The enjoyable part of the job was watching the children grow.
Asst. Teacher (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 13, 2013
I loved working at NH. I learned a lot about other cultures. between the families and staff NH has over 100 different spoken languages. The management is great! You could go at anytime and voice your opinion to management and they would listen. I have heard, since I left 3 years ago that almost all of management are new to NH. In my opinion. The best thing about NH is the diversity and the hardest thing is what make this company so unique all the languages. which sometimes makes it hard to communicate.
