Horrible Pay- Can't live in NY on this salary
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Bronx – June 24, 2013
Be prepared to go through a barrage of interviews and an incredible amount of scrutiny. I was met and interviewed by about 20 people, one interview lasted 4 hours, I was so thirsty by the time I left. They did a group interview where I was asked about 50 questions, then I met the CEO which seemed a bit cold withdrawn and a snobby. The other employees were pretty nice, when talking about salary they offered 28k, honestly not enough to pay rent AND eat (choices are be hungry or be homeless). It's a shame really, it's disheartening to be doing such meaningful work improving lives, meanwhile you can barely make ends meet yourself. Honestly I'm getting out of the social work field, a lot of work and very little compensation. 28k? What a waste of time, and there's no negotiating with these people. They want you working overtime, traveling all around NYC, staying up on case notes, giving up weekends, leading groups and for what? We care providers need to stop putting up with the BS and start telling these blood sucking employers, NO we don't want your job, maybe then they'll respect us a little more and offer a salary a person can live on. Shame.
good people, ok benefits package
horrendous salary, working poor status
