My job as a volunteer.at UCP
VOLUNTEER-DAY HAB ASSISTANT (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 25, 2014
Pros: short hours
Cons: no pay
After working a few years at UCP As a paid employee I left to take care of my aging mother. When I came back to UCP I became a part time volunteer. As a volunteer I would help out with busing.
I would also help out at lunch. I would also converse and interact with the clients one on one. Management was always supportive. Co workers were grateful for my assistance. The hardest part of the job was to work without pay. The easiest part of the job was the short hours.The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting and conversing one on one with the clients.

Very busy work flow
Clinical Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 19, 2014
My days are very busy from the moment I walk in till the end of the day. The first thing I do in the morning is print out the schedule for the following day so that I can call and confirm the appointments, verify the insurances and setup transportation. I also have to call our individuals that are in program to remind them to come to their appointments the day of the appointment. What I have learned is how use the EHR system to set up appointments and to scan charts into the Nextgen system. I work with a great team, everyone pitches in to help out everyone. At the end of the day what I love about my job is getting to know the individuals and putting a smile on their faces.

There's growth in this company.
Residence Program Specialist (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: alot of overtime
Cons: no coverage for per diems
A typical day at work consists of a lot of hard work and patience. Working for UCP , I learned how to use a blood pressure machine and a G tube. The Management and fellow staff members at UCP is very cooperative and unified. Hardest part working at UCP is dealing with the consumers mood swings. Working at UCP, I enjoyed interacting with the consumers.

It was productive and great to see the children
Fi-Tech, Administrator Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: great hours and having all the school days holidays off.
Cons: no steady directors on site, 7 within the 5 years i was there.
A typical day at work was checking the phone to see who was out, then do classroom coverage, announce bussing when the children arrived. Take care of classroom and office supplies weekly, do clinicians schedules on the computer and their attendance. Add new students to the Board of Education Pre-K Rider System, Do lunch count and order lunches for the students. Take chldrens daily attendance and give out their breakfast. Do requisitions for supplies and give petty cash when needed. Do the expenditures report allocating to $ 600.00. Give training to new clinicians on the computer for the Education Tracking System, Process clinicians timesheets and fax to the proper agencies.

I learned how to run a program and teaching a director how to run the program was not an easy task per say.

Management wasn't always available as they were busy with other things or out of the building. When two office staff members retired the new director thought he can sit back and be on his iphone letting me handle all the work with no assistance. He turned to be angry unsensitive and unprofessional yelling and using fowl language to staff.

Co-worker were great, they were team players when it came to the children.

The hardes part of the day was when we had to call the ambulance for one of the disable children.

The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the children smile or accomplish something that they were working on. So when the day went by smoothly with no emergencies it was an awesome feeling which meant all the children were find.

Family like atmosphere with room to grow
Habilitation Specialist (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 2, 2012
A typical day at work involves paper work, supervision and interaction with consumers, MSC's and family members.

What I have learned most from this position thus far is how to improve my communication skills to effectively manage and direct the staff who I supervise.

The most enjoyable part of my job is when I see the hard work of myself and coworkers pay off. Even more so, when I see the staff enjoying what they do.
