Counselor, Group Leader (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 16, 2017
I think the best portion of the job was being able to give back and work with children. I was able to work with kids from elementary up until high school and it was a great experience. If it wasn't for the amount of hours I'd still like to work there. Convenient and close to home.
favoritism and rampant inappropriate behavior of repercussions
Assistant Director of Middle Schools (Former Employee) – New York NY – November 18, 2017
I enjoy working here for quite some years until 2015 when the CEO retired and managerial shifts began internally. It was a stressed filled game of scapegoating and getting in numbers, the social work aspect of the job was depleted and burn out began with no support.
fun place to work and wonderful staff and management.
Blended Case Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 9, 2017
Typical day 10-6 PM field visits and office work. I learned to be more compassionate working with the families and team work at the office. Treatment plans and Assessments intakes and opening and closing cases were part of my days work. Management were supportive of us not being in the office often due to making quota of visits per month.. Culture was diverse. Best part of my job was seeing client's graduating from the program meeting their goals. Hardest part was closing certain cases.
Group Leader (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – October 9, 2017
This is a great job for students coming straight from high school. It teaches you how to be independent and responsible. A typical work day was 4 hours. The workplace provided a safe and loving environment for the children that attended the after school. I've learned how to connect with children of different age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, and learning styles.The hardest part about the job was the pay. Other than that, it was very rewarding to have a connection and be an inspiration to the kids.
productive work place and fun to be around my coworkers
Internship (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 6, 2017
Most days I came in at 8:45 am started my day at 9:00 am and was well treated like family. I learned more about the billing and coding aspect of the job. I did filling and verfiying the clients charts and making sure that everything was in order and correct. The management team was very nice to me and gave me lots of compliments on my job performance and for finding things wrong and out of place. The hardest part for me was leaving and not being able to get hired because i was an intern worker. I enjoyed going to work each day.
Educational Specialist (Current Employee) – Brooklyn new york – June 19, 2017
Exciting and fun work place, the students keeps the staff engaged and willing to explore new adventures. A typical day at work is always eventful working with middle school students there is always something to look forward too. The most challenging task of the job is when I am not able to reach my students where there at, whether their in conflict or having a difficult time managing their emotions. The most enjoyable part of the job is the expressions on the students faces when they are happen and engage in the lesson before them.
Group Leader (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 30, 2017
A typical day at work includes helping children with their homework and preparing activities for the children to participate in to keep their interest level up. I've learned how to make an effective lesson plan and how to keep the kindergarten children that I worked with engaged. The management at University Settlement is very professional and provides you with guidance in the areas that you fall short in. The hardest part of this job is saying goodbye to the children at the end of the night because they are so young and grow an attachment to you and never want to go home because they had so much fun in after school. The most enjoyable part of this job is carrying out the lesson plans that you've prepared for the kids and watching them have fun while doing it.
