Service and Support Administrator (Former Employee) –  North Canton, OhioOctober 18, 2015
A typical work day involved coordinating services for individuals with disabilities. Ensuring their health and safety, authorizing and monitoring services provided, maintaining their funding level.
Multi-tasking upon entering and leaving work environment.
I learned so much about Individuals with disabilities, they want the same things in life as everyone else.
In the Department there were some Supervisors who were approachable, some were not.
The co-workers I have worked with for the past seven years are the most helpful, professional and overall the best I've worked with.
The hardest part was dealing with dishonest providers. It was also difficult when the Individuals I worked with did not have family to share the holidays with.
Pros
Serving other who needed help. Great colleagues to work with everyday.
Cons
No significant raise over extended amount of time.

Bus Rider (Current Employee) –  Canton, OHFebruary 22, 2015
Start early in the morning picking up kids for school, and go back in the afternoon to take everybody home. Have learned CPR and first aid, how patience and understanding can make a big difference in how the day goes, and how to effectively manage individuals with behavioral issues. Management and co-workers are all great to work with as we are all there for the same purpose, to assist individuals with disabilities. Hardest part of the job is that it takes up the whole day for four hours of pay. The most enjoyable part is knowing the individuals are happy to see you everyday.

Job Coach (Former Employee) –  Canton, OHOctober 13, 2013
I would start my day with a morning meeting with the complete staff learning any new information. Bus duty would start immediately after the morning meeting. We would unload clients in wheelchairs one by one and take them to their classroom in the workshop. I learned so much about the severe and profound developmentally disabled with daily living skills. The Management was superb and my co-workers were the best. There was no hard pat to the job because you loved the people
Pros
The Best

none

Over all experience is a warm & wonderful feeling you get when you see the individuals come in. You will learn that no matter how bad of a day you may be having, they are always happy to come in to work even if they can't do much which can be the hardest part of the job. You are working with several management team players, nurses, physical therapists & social workers.
