Internship Student (Current Employee), Cleveland, OHJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: little space
On a typical day I would arrive and meet with the programs manager to discuss which clients we will be meeting with today. I would take a couple trips to the shelters to meet with clients as well as meet with clients and landlords to discuss the lease. I have learned about many of the problems that may lead an individual to become homeless as well as the obstacles that need to be passed in order to find a new home. The hardest part is finding new landlords who are willing to accept individuals who may have a record, evictions, or utility debt. The most enjoyable aspect of the job is move out day for clients who have signed a lease on a new home. The management and coworkers are easy to get along with and are always willing to provide learning opportunities.

Children's Intensive Case Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYJanuary 3, 2013
Pros: cell phones, monthly metrocards, many acalades.
Cons: no room for growth and salary doesn't increase
I enjoy my job because I like what I do. I am in the field most of the day visiting clients and advocating related services for their well being. I like the flexibility that comes with the job. I get along well with all colleagues and administrative staff. We have staff meeting and supervision bi-weekly. The hardest part of the job is dealing with non compliant client's. Overall I have developed a good rapport with everyone on my caseload and other service providers as well. I am seeking change because I no longer wish to do field work as I have been doing this for over ten years.

Coordinator (Current Employee), New York, NYDecember 23, 2012
Pros: working with wonderful families, relaxed work environment
Cons: low pay, and little room for growth
University Settlement is a great place to work. The people are friendly and the benefits are competitive. The work environment provides a sense of purpose to creating a true community feel. However within each program there is little room for growth and you can possibly end up in a silo.

Fun and safe environment with a chance to interact with children
Senior Group Leader (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 25, 2012
The most enjoyable part about the job is watching the progress the children make while the hardest part might as well be finding a way to reach all the children. Its an almost family oriented setting between co-workers and management. Two things this job teaches you is patience and leadership. A typical day at work entails feeding the children supper followed by homework help and then ending the day with team building activities.

Senior Center (Current Employee), New York, NYMay 31, 2012
Pros: good food
Cons: sick clients
A typical day at work very Challenging, I deal with a lot of different personalities from Older Adults (Senior citizen). Most are good and some bad. I've learn alot of different cultures and languages (not fluently of course). With management and co-workers wroking as a team it all comes together with no worries at the end of a shift. Sometimes the hardest part of my job is if one my clients is injured needing medical attention, when there is so little to do when looking at someone in pain. The best part of my job is when at the end of the day I know I helped someone in need
