The Children's Center was a productive workplace with much room for advancement.
SIL and Foster Care Supervisor (Former Employee), Detroit, MIApril 8, 2014
Pros: free coffee, iphones
Cons: high turnover of staff
I started work at 8:00am. I always arrived to work 45 minutes early to get extra work completed.

I learned how to supervise two programs simultaneoulsy while keeping my staff's moral high.

My management style was always being fair, firm and consistent.

I got along with all my co-workers. We often dined after work.

The hardest part of the job was – more... making sure staff didn't get burned out.

The most enjoyable part of the job was watching students become independent and family's being reunited. – less

Was a Productive and Fun environment
Intake/Licensing Specialist (Former Employee), DetroitFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: tcc was....... an excellent environment.
Worked at this agency for almost 8 years. In the 2013 we were under new management. The environment became pressured, fearful and unsecured. I loved my job until I was assigned to a supervisor who was not experienced in my specific duties. I was considered a exceptional worker until....... The new management and supervisor succeeded in a campaign that – more... assassinated and exaggerated my work performance negatively. Prior to the new management; the job was enjoyable very fulfilling and I enjoyed completing tasks to take care of my foster parents and children. My leaving was hurtful; as, TCC being an at will employer, there was no avocation process that could help with my situation. I was under a supervisor who style was controlling and singleness of purpose. – less

Hated it...
Teacher (Former Employee), Conway, ARApril 8, 2013
This place was awful to work for. The directors do not let you work a full shift (4 hours a day...) if you are part time. They expect you to leave as soon as the children are gone. You usually do not get your breaks.
