Terrible! Unsafe! No advancement!
Outreach Rep (Former Employee) – Washington DC – April 24, 2014
I truly believe the mission of HSCSN is great. To help improve healthcare for DC residents is important to the success of our community. However, making home visits in unsafe environments and managers not caring about your well-being make the job tougher. Senior management has unrealistic goals for workers. They never go out in the field and experience the day of an outreach worker. WHATEVER you do, DO NOT work for Mr.Doggette! He will take advantage of you, work you like a dog, and treat you like a volunteer. He even fires employees on NEW YEARS EVE!
I learned a lot about the community I live in. Improving healthcare and educating DC families is rewarding. Unfortunately, the pay does not equal out. If you want to just have a job until you find something better, do it. If not, don't even waste your time. This organization is cheap to its workers. You have to use your own car to go all over DC and it takes 3 weeks before you get reimbursed for your gas. They want you to do everything for free, but give members $15 gift cards to Murrays & Safeway. I know the DC families need our support, yet this organization has a lot of restructuring to do. to retain their current employees.

no advancement, raises, and no safety
