Interesting place to work at. Friendly environment.
Intern (Former Employee), Queens, NYAugust 8, 2013
A typical day include running errands to the court house, disposing or organizing paper work and case file for my supervisors, and following directions and orders. There were days I also sat in on court hearings, and cases, learning about the laws for foster care adolescents, and court room terminology, behaviours, and etiquette.
I enjoyed every aspect – more... of this job, since it is extremely similar to my goal of becoming a lawyer. – less

Great place to work, which is where I obtained most of my work experience.
Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, New YorkJuly 11, 2012
Pros: transit checks, and health benefits.
Heavy interaction with indigent clients who have criminal cases. A typical day at this organization was hectic, and at times chaotic.

Management were very interesting and compassionate. The co-workers were colorful, and at times very difficult to deal with, but nonetheless I loved everyone of them.

The hardest part was dealing with the clients coming – more... out of jail, who many were HIV patients, and totally indigent, with many personal problems and very little patience.

The most enjoyable part of this job was the different personalities, the different cases, and being part of it all.

I learned how to be patient, team player, and who to multi-task in a chaotic and hectic environment. – less
