Facilitator and Outreach Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Indio, CAJanuary 22, 2016
being about the same vision and making sure to bring in positive vibes to work, was essential to my experience. I enjoyed working for the company and it was organized and upper management were easy to talk to. Although the building felt unstable at times, things got done either way.

Cons
facility felt unsafe

Excellent leadership, very cohesive team
High School Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) –  San Leandro, CAJune 25, 2015
A typical day at work included work with at-risk youth in a non-public high school setting. I was also provided with excellent trainings as well as individual supervision on a weekly basis. I learned how to provide appropriate, high-quality services to this population, implementing self-care practices on a daily basis. The leadership at STARS was strong and supportive, promoting my professional development and personal growth. My team of co-workers was responsive and professional. The most challenging part of the job was to help students struggling with motivation to improve academically. The most enjoyable part of the job was to help the kids realize their potential and make lasting changes in their lives.

Poor HR experience
Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Long Beach, CASeptember 28, 2014
The people who work at Human Resources have absolutely terrible customer/employee service; they are rude to college grads who have never been employed. If you've had trouble looking for work for over a year and have yet to build experience, they will be condescending of that. If you forget to read their fine print for job criteria, they will be rude towards your mistake, even though it is very poor of them to display such unprofessionalism.
Pros
very empathetic to children
Cons
could care less about courtesy regardless of employee meeting criteria or no
