Working with families
Child Welfare worker and supervisor (Former Employee) – Cook county, will co, Kankakee county – December 2, 2016
Work days will be full of things to get done. The trainings are immense so you learn alot about people and how to understand their needs. In my opinion, these training are far more enlighten then any 4 year college education. Management is good, co-workers are good and in the same place that you are in, always busy. Hardest part of the job, is although it is 8:30- 5pm, the work activities tend to often go over that time frame, so while you are not force nor asked to work beyond 5pm (very often) but you often willing work after 5pm, due to your commitment to your clients. The most enjoyable part is you knowing you are helping others, no matter how small or little, you can see they appreciate it and in that moment when you extend yourself to their need, you know it makes a difference. That was the beautiful part of the job. And in hind sight, the benefits are really great.
