Teacher (Current Employee), MIOctober 9, 2012
Pros: free trainings
Cons: plenty classroom observations by upper management
A typical day at work (Head Start) is a little challenging but manageable. Working with diverse children and their families has been enjoyable thus far. My co-workers is what makes my job fun and exciting. We work as a team throughout the entire site. The hardest part of my job is getting Disability Aides on board to help limit challenging behaviors – more... in my classroom. One thing I have learned about my job is that you get quality training, and high encouragements of upgrading your levels of education. I enjoy working with children, however, I feel at home and at peace when I enter a medical environment. Management......... – less

At the time of my employment, it was going through a rough period
Employee (Former Employee), Inkster, MIAugust 5, 2012
Pros: great programs & commitment to community
Cons: you'll have to check it out for yourself
My understanding is that it has gone through many changes. I would encourage you to interview them in your interview. Wonder about who your supervisor is, job expectations. I believe it was more challenging for those in supervisory positions. There was A LOT of scapegoating when I was there. Lay offs were abundant. They are under completely different – more... management now. Worth checking out. Great programs – less

I would never go back nor refer anybody for employment
Administrative Support Staff (Former Employee), Livonia, MIJuly 10, 2012
Cons: no advancing opportunities
I would have enjoyed workin for the company if the people were more color friendly and they gave the opportunity to advance within the compnay. A typical day's work for me was pretty boring and uninteresting. The best part of work for me was conversation with my immediate co-workers and some of the clients. The job was easy to do and the management – more... team sucked. They always stuck together to work against those that they no longer wanted apart of the team. I have watched them turn clients away that really need help because they weren't appealing to them or the therapist refused to work with them. – less
