mediocre at best
Part-time Teacher (Former Employee), Douglasville, GAAugust 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.

Teacher (Current Employee), Douglasville, GAJuly 6, 2015
Pros: Benifits, Lunch, Positive atmosphere
Cons: Wages
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, NYJune 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

Contact person - Jeffrey Orth (Former Employee), Glen Allen, VAMay 19, 2015
Scanning in-patient, out-patient charts, and physician notes.
Faxing, phones, copying. and systems and computer programs to help me achieve my job duties.

I learned how to use the tools provided by Sheltering Arms to help me do my job.

The management leadership was the best I have ever worked for.

Great co-workers we had an awesome team.

The hardest part of this job was the leadership change.

Everything was great about my job, people, hours 7:30 to 4:00, no weekends. Working toward a common goal, having the ability to be part of a solution.

This all went bad when our director walked out.

Overworked and underpaid but working with the kids are the best!
Case Planner (Current Employee), Bronx, NYApril 25, 2015
Pros: My schedule is fliexiable
Cons: No retirement plan
A Typical day at work includes engaging with youth at risk ages 14 to 21. Advocating for youth in court, school and the community. I am also responsible for completing reports and notes about youth progress. My co-workers and I work as a team for the most part but it can be stressful and unproductive when everyone isn't on the same page. The Hardest part about the job is working with the unprofessional staff that don't work together as a team to get the job done, The most fruitful part of the job is my relationship that I have with my youth, I have been able to sustain a healthy and productive relationship with them. As a result of my positive relationship with them most of my youth reach or on track to hit personal goals,

Many good people. Unfortunately this 100+ year old non profit went bankrupt. There was a great deal of politics that governed advancement.

Fitness Therapist/Parkinson's Specialist (Current Employee), Richmond, VAApril 19, 2014
A typical day at Sheltering Arms does tap into the neuro capabilities of every employee. However, the pay is not the greatest, nor is the management. However, the directors and the Board of Directors and other upper management is phenomenal!
