Camp Counselor (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 24, 2017
Typical days include traveling & activities for the kids (Water fights, rock climbing, movies, games, and exercises), my co-workers were sociable & easy to get along with, but some camp attendees will disrespect you because of you're age gap (Some counselors are teenagers), and some attendees will view the teen counselors as more of a peer than their elder.
My managers themselves were nice people & easy to work with, but should've been more organized, especially during field trips & communication with employees.
The hardest part of working there was the organization, trip planning, and communication among employees.
The most enjoyable part of working there was the upbeat environment & working with the kids.
Really fun activities for employees to bond with the kids, not a lot of teedious/boring work.
Short lunch breaks, can be hectic & unorganized at times.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – June 17, 2017
Work is awesome, management is incredible! Always busy there's always something to do. Customers can be very rude but there are those that are very nice. Constant cleaning is a must because some customers can make big mess! But the atmosphere and group job is amazing, miss my coworkers they're incredible people.
Children's Aid our mission is to make sure we care for the children in poverty.

Building Maintenance Janitorial Worker (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 16, 2017

Case Planner (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 29, 2017
A typical day at work involves supervising visits, as well as writing up case notes on contacts with clients and service providers about the client's progress and their engagement with their respective services. The job also consists of scheduling and coordinating conferences with various parties, noting the progress of the services, and uploading notes to a foster care computerized system for storage.
At this job, I have learned how to effectively manage my time in order to adequately complete the plethora of paperwork, reports, supervised visitations, coordination with families and services, service planning with clients and assessing their progress with services, attending court proceedings with a report on client's progress, conducting monthly home safety inspections, documenting all contact with service providers and clients, and completing various safety risk assessments.
The management of the job is generally friendly and helpful at first. After a short period of time you are expected to know how to do the work, without any prior job training. The management is demanding in what you are required to get done.
Generally the workplace culture is nurturing and friendly. Yet, the culture can also be problematic at times, as some staff members become hostile when asked to provide items or services for other staff members that are needed in order to properly provide services for the clients.
The hardest part of the job was getting all the work done in a 35 hour work week, while having to document all contact with clients and staff in order to ensure transparencymore... at all times.
The most enjoyable part of the job is witnessing the families I worked with reunite.less
Rewarding work when families are reunited.
Overload of paperwork and an environment of blaming.
