Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) – Norristown – September 3, 2015
decent place to work. Although we experienced numerous layoffs and attrition rates upwards of 60%. Management was resistant to fresh ideas. Definitely a "boys club" culture. Bottom line, it gets you procurement experience for better jobs. Not the most sophisticated procurement minds leading.

Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Gorham Maine – October 2, 2013
A typical day involves checking in on residents, going on rounds to make sure the building is safe and no policy violations are happening, dealing with policy violations as they occur and providing counseling as needed. Met with supervisor twice a week once in a group meeting and once in a one on one to discuss areas for improvement and other outstanding issues. The best part of the job is seeing residents that you have helped succeed and the wide and varied experiences the job offers. The most difficult part of the job is dealing with policy violations.

Account Coordinator (Current Employee) – Norristown, PA – March 9, 2015
The job is your basic call center job. The work can get very mundane. It's a nice starting job, but not really for a lasting career. The co-workers are the best part of the job. Some are very helpful and make the job experience more enjoyable.
