Fun learning experience with senior citizens
Caregiver/Aide (Former Employee), Hughson, CAFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: it was always something different everyday.
Cons: losing residents.
Through this enjoyable and grateful opportunity, I learned how to understand people and their history. There was never a single day where I dreaded going to work. I loved listening and learning from their stories. I had no problem pretending I was someone’s daughter or granddaughter, when it involved residence with dementia; I was more than glad to give them a moment of happiness.

Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), Bronx, NYJune 17, 2014
the hardest part of the job i could say was dealing with the clients that were living there because they were very young minded my typical day on the job at samaritan village would be mop and sweep floors take out trash and be on stand by just in case my superviser needed me for anything i learned alot about sheet rock ,dry wall installation,buffing minor electrical work and plumming as for my co-workers they were very helpful when i didnt know something they took they time to teach me the most enjoyable part of the job i would say would be the peaple and just dealing with different attitudes i say that because im a peaples person.

In Patient Drug and Alcohol Program
House Manager/ Counselor (Former Employee), Ellenville, NYMay 2, 2014
This was a newly opened facility that served Veteran Women. This place was very unorganized, they went through three directors in less than a year and a half. But besides the down side of that, I really enjoyed working with the women and helping them to reach their goals

The company is great, but the location is a toss-up
Case Manager (Current Employee), NY, NYMarch 17, 2014
Pros: benefits, "family atmosphere"
Cons: people are constantly getting fired, understaffed, strange schedules
Samaritan is a great company to work for. They offer solid pay and great benefits. However, each individual site is different. At mine in particular, things are rather disorganized and there's high employee turnover. In addition, although almost everyone I work with has an advanced degree, my site doesn't offer any room for advancement and licensure (they don't have the required supervision). In addition, because of employee turnover, my site is chronically understaffed which leads to nearly unmanageable caseloads. Overall however, I can't fault Samaritan for this, I think it is a fault of the type of site where I am working.

Not too shabby about it
Case Manager, Human Service Assistant (Former Employee), Briarwood, NYOctober 23, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule, paid vacations, benefits package
Cons: management, no room for growth or advancement
A typical day at work:

Clock in at 3:45pm (because my day usually started at 4pm). Go into my office to start-up my computer, and I am automatically called by my Supervisor and reprimanded because I "forgot" to say good afternoon/evening. There was a lot of Unequal Opportunities for Employers, as well as clients. Too many advancements between family members, made me feel left out of the group.
The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing my client's faces when they saw that I was working that night. The professional relationship I maintained with my client's is incomparable to any other job I ever worked for, and the results were astronomical - placing one client after another into permanent residence, and seeing their joyful attitudes as they were packing their little belongings to move on to the next phase of their lives... The hardest part of the job was dealing with my Superiors (Management).

working in fear of being fired
Case Manager (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYMay 20, 2013
Cons: catty co workers
working in fear of being fired for very minor issues. Every day some was fired. One of the directors in charge is on a mission to let go of everyone she personally did not like. Not the greatest work enviornment, but the pay was good.
