Assistant Cook (Current Employee) –  South Ozone Park, NYOctober 11, 2017
I felt this company could have exercise more organization skills, along with a more professional approach when it came to communicating with their staff. I have learn a lot being a kitchen staff, but also did not have a sense of advancement , or have seen
much development in the residents improvement. Although, I still maintained my drive, and passion in my role as a cook. However, it seemed those qualities were overlooked.
Pros
Given creative control in the kitchen
Cons
Lack of communication

Group Leader (Current Employee) –  Bronx, NYOctober 1, 2017
Sheltering Arms can be stressful but also fun. I learned to have more patience with people. The management is good and for the most part fair. The workplace culture can be hectic at times because there are many children you have to work with from different grades among the staff. The hardest part of the job is trying not to raise your voice at the children when they are getting rowdy. The most enjoyable part is seeing the kids have fun and having a good time.
Pros
Do not work on the weekends
Cons
no benefits, no paid time off

Its a good job for a college student
Group Leader (Former Employee) –  New York, NY 10001September 26, 2017
I loved working here. Getting to know the kids and be able to build with them was a rewarding experience. However, it doesn't pay enough to take care of bills. It is definitely a good fit for a student who can go to school in the morning then work in the afternoon
Pros
Staff outtings
Cons
Not being paid for the work effort that is put in.
