Pros: flexible schdule
Cons: long over time hours
A typical day at work was quite not so busy and fun. I have learned that working with different people have different disabilties. My supervisor was great at meething with all employee's and running the group home. My co-workers was great at beening on time and finishing tasks. The hardest part about the job was you never knew how someone's day was – more... going to start. The most enjoyable part of the job was having a very good flexible schdule and getting paid on every other wednesday. – less

Depressing place to work.
Outreach Worker (Former Employee), Bridge NorthSeptember 27, 2012
Pros: benefits
Cons: salary too low
Mental health support to help clients with day to day living. Management needs improvement--communication skills were not good at all. Mangagement had favorites and shunned others on the team. Co-workers were distant, and sometimes hard to deal with. Level of development of co-workers: age 17. Hardest part of the job was hospitalizing members.

Needs a more humanistic and compassionate staff and team leaders.
Outreach Worker (Former Employee), North Chicago/Bridge NorthSeptember 27, 2012
Pros: working out in the feild most of the day away from coworkers and other staff
Cons: flexibility and independence, getting to know the members and working with them.
Overall, not a very good place to work. Most co-workers were selfish and inconsiderate and immature. Upper mangemant was very supportive--team leaders were not supportive at all, and very callous. Not a friendly place to work. In fact, it was very hostile most times. The best part of the job everyday, was getting out of the office and working with the – more... members, other than that it was a miserable experience. The only thing I learned was how to advocate for myself, because if you didn't fit in with the clique, you were isolated and rejected. Very heartless and cold staff to be in social service. – less

July 18, 2013

I was a client of your former team for about five years, they were extremely apathetic and abusive, they took advantage of a car accident I was in make sure I was locked into desperate poverty, then a new team leader took over and she could not even handle micro-managing my life, so things just fell apart and they would punish me for their incompetence. I finally broke away after they dumped me in a disgusting SRO in Uptown with no hope for normal life left.

Work environment was great, supervisors very understanding and easy to work with, Hours flexible
Drug and Alcohol Counselor (Former Employee), Georgetown, DEApril 18, 2012
Pros: free lunches occasionally, made your own hours for most part.
Cons: didn't qualify for healthcare.
Work was from 8-5 and dealt with helping clients overcome drug/alcohol addiction. I learned how to have patience, speak with people suffering from a disease and was able to learn how to be sympathetic and empathetic. Management was great, they were understanding and would work with you no matter what the case was. Co-workers were very helpful and always – more... offered help whenever needed. Hardest part of the job was not allowing clients to pull you in and manipulate. Needing to keep distance and not enable, most enjoyable part of the job was experiencing people live their new lives clean and sober. – less
