The work place was productive and fun. Management and co-workers were good. It was family oriented.
Medical Social Worker Three (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 12, 2013
Pros: free in-services lunches provided by different home health agencies, paid days off for ceu's, off and paid for all major holidays, 12 sick days, flexed hours, good salary.
Cons: poor dental plan, swiping in and out
The work place was definitely productive. Each Social Worker was assigned to a particular number of patients. We still found time to vent our concerns. It was a family atmosphere. We laughed, cried and had disputes, which was settled in a professional and loving way. I had no problems with co-workers because we communicated with each othe if there were any problems or concerns. Each day brought about a different challenge a hard to please patient, a difficult supervisor on one of the Nursing Units or a difficult employment outside of the Social Service Office. As a Social Worker, I had to manage all patient cases in a timely manner. I managed the office when the SW Director was absent. SW Director was great! As long as we did our work, she did not bother us. The hardest part of the job was finding appropriate services for some of the patient, due to lack of insurance, prior criminal records or service cuts. The most enjoyabal part of my job was being able to help people and teach them something new, watching their faces light up because the understood what you are teaching them and realizing that you are able to help them.

Community Outreach Specialist/ Case Manager (Current Employee), St. Louis, Mo.November 25, 2012
Pros: flexability
Cons: budget restraints
A typical day at work would be addressing the needs of my clients, Seems like I'm always putting out fires! ( Which is most rewarding) I work with Seniors half day and school age children the second part of my day. I've learned that the elderly are the forgotten population, their needs are great. The hardest part of my job is seeing the elderly struggle, most are alone they barely have family. They have very little to no money. I'm restricted on how much I can asst them with financially due to my small budget. It's touching. The most enjoyable part of the job is assisting the seniors with various resources, having wheel chairs repaired, assisting them with medical coverage. Knowing that I made a difference.

Pros: paid holidays, four day work week.

My day at provident was to open up. set up work station and complete transaction by cashing or depositing customers checks. handling small customers complaints closing out the branch. clean up restock deposit slips brochures. my co-workers at this job was very reasonable and extremely nice. the hardest part of my job was ten hour shifts but the best part of my job was you only had to work four days a week. the manager was ok he was nice as well.
