I enjoy working with the residents, however, mis-management often makes work difficult and the employee turn over is huge.
Kitchen Worker/Cook (Former Employee), White Bear Lake, MNSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: enjoyable work
Cons: it's part time, and i would prefer full time days.
I thoroughly enjoy working for and interacting with the residents, who talk to me about what they are doing to improve their lives and plans for the future they are making. I have learned that most people are basically the same no matter what their situation in life may be.
Unfortunately, management is lacking in many areas, such as honesty, fairness, – more... transparency and organization.
It's hard to get to know employees because there are always new hires starting and older employees leaving.
The hardest part of this job is the management, but the most enjoyable is the work I do and being of service to others. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Staten Island, New York, and Brooklyn, New YorkSeptember 6, 2014
I enjoyed my time with Volunteers of America as it allowed me the opportunity to help others. I found it rewarding and challenging; a position that was never boring. I loved working with people, my co-workers and staff. The working environment was pleasant, but the most enjoyable part of the job was the impact my work had on those we were helping. I – more... loved taking on new responsibilites, and going above and beyond what was expected of me. – less

Direct Care Worker (Current Employee), Quincy, MASeptember 5, 2014
Pros: available o.t., active shift, meals provided
Cons: no breaks, mandatory stay only for fulltime staff
I would head into work 2:45 to allow a 15 minute window to allow staff to pass on and reciave important information.. AS i enter the Unit residents remain in theier rooms for a short period of time after entering common area they have reading time then usually a group meeting with an assigned clinician followed by dinner then back to the unit or outside – more... for activities followed by shower and phonecalls which are optional. Res then spend the rest of their evening until 9:30 on recreational activities staff support and guide resdients to make smarter decisions and also engage with activities throughout the day while enforcing program Rules. supervisors usually administrate proper medications and over see overall progress. It's a great hard working unified team at my job communication is a big thing. in the past 2 years iv been there iv learned allot of pateince and discipline and self control also many De escalation and disengagement tactics also restraints is necesary – less

Very disorganized organization with little to no proper orientation
Case Manager (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: just about everything else.
Went through three Program Managers and two Program Coordinators in three months. Very top-heavy organization with too many chiefs and not enough Indians. As just a regular worker, upper level staff appeared to be so bored that they were always in your business. Can't get any decent work done without some big-wig stepping in and throwing some meeting – more... to change things, or trying to tweak things that don't need tweaking. – less
