Supervisor had select staff that were clicky with her and trained to be and think like her and if you didn't adapt or fit in to their ways or views then you get treated. Very unprofessional supervisor! Talked down to me in front of a licensing representative, rolled eyes, made faces....when found out something didn't go her way. When I was hired was promised 4% increase after 6 months and that didn't happen. I saw I wasn't going anywhere with a boss like that....so I found a better job with better pay, flexibility and benefits! I only felt sorry for the children and a couple of good staff. Too bad for the bad apples at this organization....that don't know how to appreciate good hard working people.
The work environment for some are on the right track to help people. Management rules are to get the work out fast and without any issues. Very poor training. Big turn around. Workers leaving most of the time. Poor hiring process. Sometimes spend up to 9 months to replace a worker. Causes existing workers to quit because of the pressure put on them to keep up for the ones that are gone.
It was really excellent, until after the second interview. At that point they stopped communicating and did not not respond to my inquiries. My references informed me that they had been contacted, but they became unresponsive. Overall a disappointing experience, with an otherwise reputable organization.
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Catholic Charities?
Do not get burnt out. It will happen if you do not say no to taking some hours.
