Domestic Violence Specialist (Current Employee) – Ozone Park, NY – June 16, 2016
There are not enough hours to complete workload on timely manner. Most Supervisors lack experience therefore guidance is not very supportive. Co-workers become your family, hardest part of your work is trying to meet deadlines. Most enjoyable part is working one-on-one with the clients.

co-workers are sharks and management don't communicate with workers, always a long day with most things. learned how to be independent and work at a good pace. dealing with people that don't want to work is the hardest part of the day always.
excellent at taking care of the individuals.
no structure in the work place, no communication within management

I learned that children are precious no matter the behavior or environment that they are in. I am always excited about being able to teach each children that I have and help them learn what is needed from day to day to get them to the next level in their life.
Part-time Teacher (Former Employee) – Douglasville, GA – August 10, 2015
working at sheltering arms is an ok job if you are fine with dealing with a lot of workplace drama. the management does not care for their teacher and the center director can come off as chauvinistic. the pay is terrible along with the benefits.

A typical day at work is fun and fast pace. Working for Sheltering Arms, you will never have a dull moment. I've had so much types of training from CPR, Fire and Safety, Bright from The Start, Read Right from The Start, etc. The management team is pretty good, there are some defaults, but it's not major. My co-workers are amazing, fun loving and helpful. They make the day go by so fast and they all treat the children, parents, and management team the same. The hardest part of the job is having full participation from parents on different activities, but we still have to consider that not everyone has the same income. The most enjoyable part of my job is making life long connections with each student and parent. Having a child run up to you and give you the biggest hug then immediately want to tell you everything that has happened to them makes your heart melt. The child trusts you and feels comfortable enough. I love that feeling.
MST- SA Therapist (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – June 17, 2015
Great Job, however it is underpaid for the work that is required. Management is supportive to growth with certain people.The most difficult part of the job is balancing the the treatment model, with agency requirements. There is a lot of travel in this job and sometimes can be one of the most difficult aspects of the job
