It was a very rewarding job
Llife skills instructor (Current Employee), Layton UtahJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: i liked the consumers i worked with and it worked with my schedule
Cons: the pay was not enough to live on my own
I learned a lot about working with disabled adults. I took them shopping and helped them become productive in the community. My house manager was really good and made my job easier. The hardest part was taking them in public by myself.

Life Skills Instructor (Current Employee), Layton, UTNovember 19, 2013
A typical day at North Eastern Services, isn't always the same, it's always different, in the 6 months that i have been with this company i have learned that having a great rapport with the adults that you are taking care of is an amazing thing to build for the future. I love everyone I work with, but unfortunately the company itself is not very interested – more... in its employees. The hardest part about my job at North Eastern Services is not getting into power struggles with the consumers, but the best part of my job is that i get to spend almost everyday teaching these adults about life and that's what makes me life and day a whole lot better. – less

dont work here unless you love kids
Life Skills Instructor/Manager (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTNovember 7, 2013
Pros: co-workers, clients
Cons: managment
i worked at North Eastern Services almost two years the only thing i liked about this job was being able to make an impact on the childrens life, and getting to know different children and adults with all kinds of different disabilities. This was one of the most rewarding jobs i have ever had as far as working with amazing people and amazing co-workers. – more... A particular day at work involved picking up clients, transporting them to the center, ensuring there safety, prepping their meals for them and feeding them, taking them on activities hanging out with them, redirecting them when behaviors arise, communication with them and socializing, changing there dispense and making sure there personal hygeine is top notch, teaching them new things, watching them learn and grow, and taking them home. I taught myself how to love someone unconditionally, i learned a tremendous amount of patience and the skills to benefit a childs life how to communicate with people who have a hard time speaking and how to redirect clients. hardest part of job is talking to managment you have no support in the managment field whatsoever, also there is no training so you learn on your own. The co-workers are amazing they are all there for the kids and love them dearly they are all supportive and will help you with anything. When it comes to management this is by far the most underappreciated company of their employees i have ever worked for. Also they allow tons of abuse and neglect to go on, they are simply there for the paycheck and they play tons of favoritism. it is almost impossible to keep a job here. The Director of the company does not pay attention to what goes on in the Center Nor does he appreciate his workers. You have to put up a fight for money. you never get your raises or checks on time and there almost always wrong. the turn over rate is ridiculous they hire and fire people so much that the kids have to suffer. unless you feel bad for these children DO NOT WORK HERE. also the new director of the After School Program will do anything and everything she can to fire you. she does not coach you she just writes you up and fires you. the most enjoyable part of the job is that you have co-workers who are like family they are all there for the kids and it feels like a team, also of course getting to know the clients they are all very amazing and entertaining. – less

A company that does for others
Life Skills Instructor (Current Employee), West Valley City, UTNovember 7, 2013
Pros: great clients and co-workers
Cons: limited funds and need of more staff
A typical day at work can be just as challenging as rewarding. The challenges are the attempt to make our clients as happy and comfortable as possible. While the reward comes from over coming those challenges. A client may be in a wheelchair or have a learning disability and either can be a set back for the client to reach their goals. Finding the first – more... obvious solution then reaching higher to obtain the clients perfect solution is a matter of patience and listening. – less

Holidays and week-ends are require, and either you work swing or grave shifts.
Life Skills Trainer (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTOctober 29, 2013
Pros: no experience is needed
Cons: hard to take time off, they only offer swing or grave shifts, and on your days off, they still try to get you to work because they are always short staff.
This company is always short staff, it's very hard to get a raise, and people that do work here, have no compassion for the people that they are caring for. And the communication between the staff and upper management is a joke! And if someone doesn't come to replace you at the end of your shift, you are stuck till they find someone to come replace – more... you! – less

Rewarding, enjoyable, family oriented, high pace, and friendly.
Life Skills Instructor/House Manager (Former Employee), Layton, UTOctober 6, 2013
Pros: public activities, camping trips, group activities, competitive environment but most of all very rewarding.
Cons: high turn over rate, low pay, lack of communication, some unprofessionalism from admin, and under-staff
A typical day at work consisted of preparing meals, administering medications, making sure all the individuals goals are met and completed in the most safest and peaceful route. Every meal is prepared according to a nutritional but enjoyable standard. Each consumer has their own individual behavior plans and goals. These behavior plans are constructed – more... and placed for their own safety and the safety of others. All staffs must follow these behavior plans accordingly and to the best of their abilities. At the end of every shift, all documentations have to be filled out properly. If an incident happened while staff was on duty, staff must fill out incident report and have it turned in within the time frame provided by support coordinator and Director and based on company policies. As a staff, confidentiality is a very important factor. We are not to disclose any information about any if our consumers. When documentations are completed and filed, staff's shift may then end.
The hardest part of the job is not knowing the individual or going into a situation unprepared. When going into a behavior, most of the individuals are much more prone to talking to staff without any physical contact if you as the staff know how to handle the individual and have read their behavior plan. The most enjoyable part is knowing how rewarding I feel at the end of the day when they innocently proclaim their love for you as the best staff in the world. As like every work environment, every person (staff) is different. We each have our own ways of handling certain situations and circumstances. For the most part, it was very welcoming to work with others. – less

What i did
Life Skills Instructor (Former Employee), Vernal, UTAugust 4, 2013
A typical day at North Eastern Services I helped out the handicap adults with the daily needs like cleaning their house, doing the dishes, getting ready for the day, and just basic stuff like that. The management I didn't really like and I also thought that some of the co-workers were rude and inconsiderate.

Staff / life skill instructor (Current Employee), orem utJuly 25, 2013
A typical day at work is where staff make sure that the clients are doing there work makes sure that the clients are getting a long with each other. I teach them how to socialize and learn new life skills and how to be a team in every thing they do like playing basketball and working on work project.

They work around your schedule and are really understanding.
LSI (Former Employee), Orem, UTNovember 4, 2012
You help disabled adults with their jobs and cook them dinner. You just hang out with them and do whatever it is they would like to do. I learned how to be patient and that they are some of the best people in the world! The management isn't so well in the house I worked at but we make do. The co-workers are really fun and outgoing!! They love to work – more... with others.The hardest part of the job would be the graveyard shift and trying to stay awake when you're all by yourself. The most enjoyable part is everything about it. You get to meet so many great people and work with them everyday. You really get to know their personality and know just what they like. You know what to do in situations, what works and what doesn't. – less
