Great Experience
Secretary (Current Employee), Rover PlaceJuly 17, 2013
Pros: meet new people everyday
Cons: sometimes more work than one person can do at once.
A typical day at work is answering phone, logging accounts, scheduling, Helping the reps, Customer Service, Bookeeping, Scanning, Copying, Emailing, Faxing,Filing. I have learned that Secretary's actually do alot of work. They keep the office running and are the backbone, very important people. Management is very good, the communicate and work with – more... me if there is an issue. If i ask any questions they answer them, or will help me to figure the problem out if they do not know. Co-workers are amazing, we all work togther to get great results at the end of the day.Keeping everyone happy and trying to answer and get around to all the reps questions or gettting around to all of there book work. I LOVE the people that i work with. I get to meet new people everyday and help them out with whatever we can. – less

Passionate for children, supportive, very enthusiastic.
Director (Current Employee), Dallas, ORSeptember 26, 2012
A typical day at work consists of attending juvenile hearings, developing trainings, appointing volunteers to child abuse cases, monitoring cases and data input, working with system partners, and community awareness. Training volunteers, public speaking, research and report writing are a minimum of quarterly events.
I learned about the child welfare – more... system, Juvenile justice system, the disrupted development of children's brains, mentoring at risk youth, mental health issues, and procedures/policies of other system partners.
The District Attorney is my direct supervisor and my program is under the umbrella of Polk county. All involved have supported and encouraged all my work, and have enjoyed how my work added to the positive Polk County services.
The hardest part of the job is grant writing. The most enjoyable part of the day is interacting with all the volunteers, co-workers, and working with system partners. – less
