Family Support Worker (Current Employee) – University Place, WA – March 8, 2019
CCS was very supportive while I was going to school, and is still supportive of continued education in house as well as going back to school. They are non profit so although there is no tuition reimbursement working there for 10 years making minimum school payments your tuition can be written off which staff member are helpful in accomplishing, CCS offers competitive pay, gas reimbursement, stipends for on call and rewards for paperwork turned in on time and amazing productivity.. In addition this CCS is one of the few companies that offer a pensions plan and you really cant beet their vacation, sick leave, holiday pay, and brievment pay. They take care of there employee. Its a constantly on call job Please review my attached resume with my additional qualifications and work history. I look forward to sitting down and discussing how my personal work and school experience will make me a good addition to your team. exception to your weekend off (on call once a month or every other depending on how big the office.

Challenging collaborating with team and family
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, WA – January 12, 2019
I work as a CNA for catholic community services in Vancouver, WA. The first problem I have is with the supervisors! There is only one supervisor that is respectful and helpful. The others will cut you off in mid-sentence when trying to talk to them about a client, they are always shouting at you, they act as if you are incompetent of the job when asking them questions, they are always unorganized and have NO IDEA about what is going on with the clients they are sending you to, they also send you to homes that are filthy, uncomfortable, unsafe and major of homes I am put into are borderline hoarder homes. The supervisors have also made rude remarks towards workers and force them to do things they don't want to do. They also make a big deal if you want to see information that regards your clock in sheet, even though it is your right to see it! The second issue I have is with the schedule and hours. I am currently full time and I am only receiving 15-20 hrs, depending on the week. I have asked time and time for more hours but have not been provided with anymore. When I was first hired I had full hours, but then the week after I had 3 clients dropped from me, therefore leaving me with barely any. You have no control over the hours and you are not guaranteed to be full time. Example: I was scheduled to have a client for 8 hours a week, I drove my car to this individual's home to find out no one was home. I called the supervisor to ask if I should leave or what I should do and they treated me as if I was dumb. Asking me if I had called the client, knocked on the door, tried to openmore... the door and etc. Obviously I tried all that before calling my supervisor ! So the supervisor called to find out what was going on and finds out that the client has been and is in the hospital. So after getting treated like I was stupid and wasting my time, mileage, and fuel I find out that I will have those hours dropped and once again struggle to make ends meet. This happens frequently and this also shows that the supervisors don't check up on the clients or know what is going on. The final issue I have is that if you are wanting experience for nursing or CNA you SHOULD NOT WORK HERE. I would have never applied if I would have known that you will use no CNA or nursing skills at this job. They say you are a "caregiver" but you are actually just someone's maid, only things you will be doing is cleaning, deep cleaning, and running errands. You are being paid less than an actual maid for being someone's "caregiver" (maid) and that is the extent of your work. Overall this is a bad company to work for and I am trying to get a new job asap! If you want to work somewhere that is organized, uses respect, gives you hours and cares then you will need to look somewhere else.less
Bad management, no hours, not doing caregiver duties, staff is disrespectful, supervisors don't care or know whats going on with clients.

In Home Caregiver (Former Employee) – Longview, WA – December 31, 2018
I learned a lot from this company cause you go home to home for your clients and you learn so much different things from everyone. It was stressful t times but you work thru it and make it out to be a good day.
A great place to get a lot of experience working with people.
Shelter Monitor (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 4, 2018
Very fast past. Lots of interaction with clients,and very multi cultured. I've learned how to not take things personal. A typical day at work was filled with not knowing what the day was going to bring. Management was very supportive in all areas of the job.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Chehalis, WA – November 30, 2018
Not too many complaints but being a caregiving is hard and unrewarding work. Nothing wrong with the company they do their best with their employees and resources but sometimes I had to work 10+ days in a row just to meet my 40 hours a week on a paycheck. Also you don’t have a choice on days you work unless you want to give Up a favorite client or not work at all. The schedule is always changing and since you have 4 or 5 supervisors even on your days off people are calling you asking you to work that day. Sometimes they don’t take no for an answer it is pretty frustrating.

Catholic Community Services was a great place to work. Very friendly work environment with plenty of room to learn and grow. Great support from management and coworkers. I really enjoyed my time with them and grew not only as an employee, but also as an individual. Great community involvement and compassion.
Great starter job for anyone in the youth service or human services field.
Youth Mentor/Counselor (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA 19136 – October 19, 2018
I learned a lot about how to schedule my days out properly, great work culture, i learned to communicate better in a structured work office setting. The hardest part of the job was traveling far ranges, but it was doable to say the least. The most enjoyable thing about the job was being a mentor for the youth and also a big brother / role model.
