Intern (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY 14611 – October 12, 2018
The most enjoyable part of the day was working with my mentor. The hardest part of the job was initially working with Excel. The management was organized. I learned that it doesn't matter what socioeconomic location you come from, you are still susceptible to getting HIV.

Full Time Wellness Coordinator (Former Employee) – 2nd and Stewart, Seattle, WA – October 3, 2018
I felt like I was singled out and targeted as the only white woman on an all black team. I felt belittled and like an outsider most of the time. I am not comfortable talking bad about this job as that is rude and unprofessional.
A lot of autonomy and ability to make my own decisions.
Temporary Fund Development Coordinator (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 24, 2018
A typical day at work would include documenting donations made to Parishes from all around Western Washington. I Learned Point of Sale, Razor's Edge. Known to be difficult, Razor's Edge would help with learning and working with other systems in the future quicker and more efficient. Great coworkers. Management was lacking in the sense that they were busy in their end and ween't physically available when we were unable to execute an issue with the program or computer. The small group of people I worked with made the job fun. We helped each other problem solve and work together as a team. There were many details that needed sorting out, including those from previous employees. The most enjoyable part of the job was not being micromanaged, and to have the time and ability and be able to focus on my job.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – September 23, 2018
management was not much on one going to school to do better and excel in medical field. Was let go because my college classes interfered with their classes, although I rescheduled my classes for days that I could make them up, it wasn't enough to stay with the company.
I like working as a caregiver helping clients they're everyday needs.

Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – August 30, 2018
I loved working for this company, the only issue i had was the house manager never being at the house and was difficult to get a hold of. that was only at one house and not all of the houses are managed by the same manager.

Wrap coordinator/counselor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – August 3, 2018
CCS has a great mission and I very much enjoyed working with the clients that I served. However, (when I was there) most employees are on call 24 hours/day Mon-Fri, in addition to a weekend on-call rotation. This meant that working 10-12 consecutive days was common and working odd hours overnight or 12+ hour days happened occasionally. Moreover it was very difficult to engage in family events or go out on week nights due to the possibility of being called into a crisis. Management as a whole was very supportive and fair, with one exception that brought a toxic environment to the workplace which was one of the reasons that I left. Pay was probably slightly above average, paid time off was very generous, but medical benefits were not affordable for a family. Overall it is a great place to gain useful experience but the lack of work/life balance is a recipe for burnout.
Good pay, generous paid time off
On call schedule removes any possibility of a good work/life balance
Worked volunteer program HOPWA (Helpers of People with AIDS)
HOPWA Coordinator (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – July 28, 2018
I was hired as case aids assistant. Then moved into the HOPWA coordinator position. Funding was cut. I was then moved to maintenance work. Cleaning out temporary homes for mothers and their kids. Then I was promoted to Drug and Alcohol rehab. I would help clients get into drug treatment places. Held weekly meetings for check in. Quit this job when I was hired into Soft Count at Tulalip casino.
Learned to have patience. Better understanding of what people with drug problems were going through.
Mental Health Therapist (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – July 20, 2018
The upper management influences the day-to-day workings of this company in a way that at times created a hostile work environment. There is a high degree of turn over and difficulties around retaliation for self advocacy as individuals or as a department. Caseloads are extremely high and support and safety are overlooked often. A good place to accumulate hours quickly.
Direct Care Professional (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – July 18, 2018
It was a low key environment with low stress in getting things done. You made sure the clients were ready for their day. You would take them to their appointments when needed and assist them in their daily living.
Case Manager/Intake Coordinator/Admin Assistant HR (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – July 17, 2018
Great job, tough job. It can be difficult and stressful at times. Understanding that most individuals / couples are wonderful mentors to their children. There were only a few homes that needed to be closed (for reason).
Poorly managed, gossipy environment, sexist (90% female) favoritism and inequality.
Choosing not to disclose (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 27, 2018
While this company itself has an incredible cause this particular office is run by substandard management. They have next to no clue how to actually run an office or keep to a budget. They follow principals of gossip and *girl talk* rather than result based work. Don't waste your time working here, you'll make more elsewhere.
Awful management team that is driving a great company into the ground.
