unit Director (Former Employee), Medford, MA – February 12, 2015
Pros: flexiable work schedule
Cons: not enough good professional relief staff available
A typical day at work for me were to oversee seven houses. I usually would be on site to at least three of my houses per work day. I usually speak with staff and speak with some individual. It's usually a fun day because I get to find out what's going on in that individual's life and to see how they are accomplishing their goals..I also get to check in with the Site Managers and the staff to see if they need to talk with me about new medications, new job site, family and doctor's information, training of new staff etc...

Case Manager Trainee (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – August 7, 2014
Pros: company culture
Cons: contractual work
A typical day at work consisted of being a life coach to welfare recipients. In addition to providing said recipients with job placement and development, we also taught and developed job skills workshops.
Resources for human development has a unique company culture that encouraged my leadership style. During my tenure at RHD, I learned the value of hard work and perseverance. Within the span of six months, I was promoted from an administrative assistant to a Case Manager Trainee. I also learned that I find immense gratification in helping others better themselves whether it be finding a job they really want or accomplishing their goals in life. Being a part of the success of others is the greatest gift.
The managers in RHD were very supportive and growth-oriented and valued their employees enough to provide them with opportunities for advancements and bonuses.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with people who had the "welfare mentality" These individuals didn't know any other way to provide for their families and finding ways to change their outlook on life was the most challenging, but exhilarating aspect of my Case Manager Trainee position. As for the most enjoyable part of the job, I would have to say it is being a part of the solution and helping people achieve goals they thought they would never achieve. Additionally, I found researching solutions to individual's problems to be a very exciting aspect of this job.

Creative Arts Therapist / Behavior Specialist (Current Employee), Wilmington, DE – March 30, 2014
This is a company you can be proud to work for--they're the best in the area at what they do. Client care comes first. Benefits are not that great, especially for a large, established company, but pay is slightly higher than average in the field. Work can be difficult but rewarding. Variety of work sites throughout Delaware, but far more in the Philadelphia area.
Greatest place I ever worked and hope to work there again as soon as I finish another degree! The best place to work ever!!!

Resident Advisor (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PA – March 2, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: not enough hours for on-call staff, no room for advancement, and hardly any full-time positions
RHD/Nova III was a good place to work. A typical day of work at this office was pretty busy. working with management, and co-workers was fun, because they helped the day go by quickly. The hardest part of the job was finding out a client relapsed. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that you were a part of the clients treatment.
