QA Line grader (Former Employee), Sunnyside, WA – December 16, 2014
At first it was very uncomfortable being in an atmosphere where I was the only white woman on my shift. No one would talk to me. But after awhile I made some new friends and felt more at ease. I enjoyed working at Seneca grading pears. The management was nice and if given the chance I would gladly work there again.
waste soulation (Former Employee), Des Moines (traveling) – November 13, 2014
Cons: not enough hours
hard working, lots of standing and lifting, managers are not the most presentable people to work with, they cut down your hours, they are not people person, they always treat you like you are not human.

Pros: benefits if become full time and pay raise

Hardest part was learning the jobs in the building as they were taught – more... by know english background speaking individuals or groups . – less
Day Rehabilitation Counselor / Camp Counselor (Former Employee), Auburn, NY – January 29, 2014
Cons: when they would get sick or die.
I enjoyed being a Camp Counselor for mentally and physically challenged adults and children. I helped them succeed in their daily goals and they had a great time at the camp. At day rehabilitation, I help them with their daily functional goals and they were always challenged and they were set up for success. It was very satisfying
Poker Dealer (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, NY – November 16, 2013
Pros: close to home, fun
Cons: short breaks
I learned how to enjoy people and socialize with coworkers. I also learned how to deal with different types of personalities a person can possess. This is not an easy task to. I also learned how to deal with different types of dillemas and how to solve each of them.
Because I had different tasks to complete at Seneca (Poker Dealer, Brush person, and – more... Poker Cashier), it widened my scope of experience in the Poker room. – less
Controller in 1978, Secretary/Treasurer in 1987 (Former Employee), Des Moines, IA – February 17, 2013
Pros: dynamic work atmosphere, great educational experience
Cons: none come to mind
I began work at Seneca Corporation when the company was only 6 years old & sales were around $3M annually. Sales were around $24M when I left in 1990. As part of a growing company, I was involved daily as an integral part of setting up new policies & processes, in establishing the company's retirement plans, in establishing & maintaining banking relationships, – more... in constantly monitoring all the company's insurance plans, in overseeing the accounting processes including preparation of all work papers for the annual certified audit. My college work had been directed at a degree in Marketing, but I soon found that Finance & Accounting was where I wanted to concentrate my efforts. Seneca is where I received most of my exposure to what became my career path. Management & ownership of the company was made up of a group of young & agressive types which made the overall experience very exciting. The hardest part of the job & also the most rewarding part of the job was keeping pace with the fast pace of change that took place as the company grew. The most enjoyable part of the job was having involvment in all phases of the operation as the company grew. – less
Day Treatment Therapist (Current Employee), San Leandro, CA – July 24, 2012
Seneca Center has a great value system and quality of care is provided to the clients. The employees are usually amazing people as it takes a rare amount of patience, passion, and kindness to do this work. The work is as hard as it is rewarding. The pay is sadly low for the amount of effort one will put in but that seems to be the trend for good non – more... profit work. – less
