Big Expectations, Little Reward
Shift Supervisor / Counselor (Former Employee) – Latrobe, PA – August 21, 2018
As an employee, there is little to no reward for the work put in. There is no "typical" day at Adelphoi. Your day is unpredictable due to the success of it relying 100% on the behaviors of the clients and your relationship with them. Often times, employees are expected to work their full work day and stay after with no pay in order to complete tasks that should've been taken care of throughout the day (however, it was impossible due to the behavior of the clients). You have the opportunity to work with awesome people but they usually don't stay long due to the lack of support from supervisors or program directors. All in all, Adelphoi is an organization that values politics and popularity on a much higher scale than they do a genuinely good and honest, hard-working employee. The clients are they only thing that make the job worth while, if you can hang in there long enough to establish lasting relationships with them.
