Absolutely Professional Work Place! Fantastic!
FAmily Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Oakton, VAJune 26, 2014
NVFS is an absolutely professional, well structured place of work. It truly allows employees to grow as professionals and as individuals. NVFS is dedicated to the well being of at risk children and families. It is truly an amazing organization!

I enjoyed working for NVFS, the team was excellent and committed to do amazing work.

When I was hired, I had the opportunity to meet the company's CEO. She makes time to have an "open table, lunch" so that she can personally meet every new employee. I was with NVFS for over two years, during my anniversaries as an employee, I received an appreciation gift for my services; and for my birthdays I received a $50 gift card as a birthday gift.

This company not only cares about making a difference in the community, but also about making every employee feel appreciated and deserving of recognition.

Unfortunately, NVFS does not pay very well :(. The work is intense and underpaid, yet, it is definitely rewarding. My family was growing and I needed to earn more money to provide for my family. Otherwise, I would have stayed with NVFS for as long as possible!
Pros
CEO personally meets every new employee -
Cons
Low Salary :(

I work with a great group of people. I love working with kids. Trying to get as much as I need to know about how to run a Daycare/HeadStart program, I plan to open my own some day.
