The program itself for the students is excellent. If you want a job that you can't advance in, here it is. It is a good first job, something nice to put on your resume, just don't get comfortable. There is no room for advancement. There is also little to no communication between the staff and administration about current concerns, therefore issues go unresolved. It is a nonprofit so there is no union reps to speak for the people when there are situations that need to be addressed. The staff has a overall love and concern for the students, that is what motivates staff to continue working. But overall, it is not worth the headache.
working with the students
low wages, no communication, unfair rules, rules don't apply to everyone.
As a School for children with disabilities you would think that the atmosphere would be depressing, but to the contrary, it was a very upbeat and positive workplace. I was a receptionist/front desk and clerical support for the entire school and OT, PT, and ST departments, such as therapies, wheelchair clinic, and augmentative clinic. I operated a multi-line phone system, and participated in many projects as necessary. Interaction with students and their families was a bonus you could not replace.
pleasant atmosphere, comradery with staff and students. excellent benefits and salary increases.
the only con i have is that they needed to reduce staff due to budgetary concerns, lower enrollment, reduction in state aid.
Group Home Manager (Current Employee) – Edison, NJ – November 14, 2013
A day at work begging with me checking on all the clients to see how their night went. Then I check with my staff to get a report of their shift. I then check e-mails and review paper work from the shift . I have learned that as a manager that I have responsibility to make sure that my staff are doing their job and meeting the expatiation of the job. The hardest part of the job is when i have to write up on of my staff. This is my responsibility as a manager . I will also use the write up as a teachable moment for the staff. I enjoy the interaction with the clients that I provide a severs for.
i am able to work with people and make sure that they have a good life.
their are people in the cummunity that need to be educatated
Head LPN CARE Homes (Current Employee) – Edison, NJ – September 11, 2012
Typical day of work is on hand experience. Checking GTube placement, O2 sats, vitals, medication administration. The management is a little unstable as there tends to be personal friendships leading to favoritisms. The hardest part of the job is escaping from chatty staff, as much as you distance yourself and say you want nothing to do with the childish gossip, its always there. There isnt room for advancement and no paid time off nor insurance.The most enjoyable part of the day is when you get to make the clients laugh and see that they had an enjoyable day.
making the clients smila and laugh at the end of the day
