Good experience for resume
Day Support Associate (Current Employee) –  Voorhees, NJOctober 24, 2018
Bancroft a good job for ones coming out of high school who are not sure what they want to do career wise. The residents I take care are the best thing about the job. U build a relationship that is different with each n everyone u know. The pay sometimes isn't worth the satisfaction u get when u see them succeed, but being able to get paid fairly and reasonably would help out in today's struggling society to live comfortable. Especially in supporting a family.
Pros
The relaionahip u build wirh them. Trust u get back from them
Cons
Pay, benefits

Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) –  Cherry Hill, NJOctober 12, 2018
Bancroft taught me so much over the past yrs that I refuse to leave. However the lack of staff at certain houses could make your job harder than what it is because you may have to do your job and take the place of someone elses
Pros
Experience and decent pay or OT
Cons
You can only work equivalent to 24hrs of OT in one week

Not for the weak of heart
Senior Program Assistant (Current Employee) –  Mount Laurel, NJSeptember 4, 2018
When they hire you they sugar coat everything. Nothing is what they tell you it is. Clients are not medicated well, and you can get hurt. Management is curupted and only care about the turn over rate. Staffing is always short, they run the place on the minimum amount of staff. I use to love my job in the begin, everyone supported you, team work was like family, and kids were happier. Now it’s their word against yours and cameras always tell a different story. If your body language looks rough then this place isn’t for you. Expect to get your hair pulled, head butted, scratched up, and some PTSD. There are no breaks.
Pros
Meals with clients, relationship with clients, benefits, discounts, relationship with co-workers, teamwork
Cons
No understanding of personal life, no breaks, not paid enough, felling targeted, no support when truly needed, short staffed, not honest
