tough position
Child Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Albany, NYMay 29, 2017
You will be assigned a unit with 8-12 teenagers. Your job is to make routine run smoothly, and constantly supervise these children offering help when possible.. You must create a lesson plan each week teaching some sort of life skill or physical activity. You work 10 hour shifts including a 14 hour shift. With little to no breaks this job can be very demanding. Place is suppose to be therapeutic, however with staff it seems more punishment and yelling happens can become chaotic. But working with these children will change everything and can become very satisfying. You must be dedicated.
Pros
free lunch, learning experience from children.
Cons
Constantly understaffed, poor communication, underpaid, Did not get mandated 30 minute break most days including days when working 14 hour shift, drama between co-workers and staff.

Child care position
Child Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Albany, NYApril 1, 2016
Low pay, drama with co workers every single day, no room for advancement. Management positions make one dollar more per hour. No breaks are given.. Ten hour shifts. If you work eight or more hours by law you should have a half hour break and two 15 min.. They don't follow that rule at all.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Crisis constant, no breaks, low salary

Interacting with teens
Oncall Staff (Former Employee) –  Albany, New YorkMay 4, 2015
Routine grounds check and maintaining the safety of staff and residents when needed.

I've learned when interacting with teens you should always try to understand them and be a helping hand and ear because that's what helps teens get through hard times.

I enjoy working with co-workers and participation is what's needed when working.

Making sure the job gets done accordingly.

Working with the residents (teens).
Pros
The residents
Cons

Teacher (Former Employee) –  Albany, NYJanuary 10, 2015
Teachers at St. Anne Institute worked selflessly to create a positive learning environment for students that frequently came from difficult circumstances. On many occasions, they went above and beyond their responsibilities to be sources of support and inspiration.

interesting place to work, very diverse staff
Child Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Albany, NYOctober 27, 2014
A typical day would consit of working with the children. we would prepare the food, play mutliple activites such as football , jump rope, volleyball etc. as well as proviidng a safe enviorment for the children because the fact of the matter was that they were abused or abusive and needed to be protected from each other an themselves at times.

In my time there i picked up a lot of life lessons in dealing with people from broken homes/families as well as learning to connect with them past their profile and analysis

Management was abysmal. Every higher up was undermining or not listening to each other which lead to multiple injuries to both myself and many staff

The most difficult part of the job was restraining the girls when they begin to assault staff of their peers.

The most enjoyable part was working in general and the children.
Pros
free lunch, healthcare, dental
Cons
bad management, being left in unsafe work situations

A challenging job with state requirements but not compensated like NYS teachers
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Albany, NYMarch 9, 2014
It is a non-profit residential program for adolescent girls that heave been placed in the agency by the court system.
Management has changed over the years. It started as being part of the Albany Diocese and run by nuns. Now it is overseen by a board of directors.There are also several directors for the different departments as well as middle managers.
It can be a stressful environment to work in as the students are highly volatile. It has its rewarding moments and that usually stems from the intangible rewards of teaching.

Engaging and Stimulating workplace environment
Child Care Worker (Current Employee) –  Albany, NYDecember 17, 2012
The Institute implements constructive routines that promote discipline and create structure for the girls. All staff are encouraged to build durable relationships with each resident to further enhance the growth of all residents. Responsibilities per staff vary depending on the intensity of needs and condition of the unit each day. Furthermore, it is quite difficult to gain the trust of residents and gain their respect, but it can be a rewarding job through applying much patience and persistence.
