Poor Management

Management creates divide and distrust between employees. Volatile working environment due to management. No sort of job security. Management chooses to fire employees based off no standards.

Diverse, fun place to work.

My position was based at the Center For People In Need however the bulk of my responsibilities were carried out in State Correctional Facilities. The most difficult part of the position is dealing with the Correctional red tape. The most enjoyable is helping individuals to succeed and be comfortable in their success.

Help People in Need

there were many difficulties with management in this company. it saddened me. i was here to help people and felt like the employees were leaving as fast as the people we were trying to help. i know the director has the hugest heart ever! if we were out of anything, it would be found for you and the cost billed to the director personally. from talking to friends who still work there, it sounds like things are not getting much better as far as some of the management, but moving in the right direction. they were very flexible with school schedule.

Pros

helping the community

Cons

upper management

Interaction at this job plays a major key

Working here is where I began to socialize and interact with many. Although I put compensation/benefits as 5 stars, I did not get paid. This was volunteer. The benefits I did get was the feeling of helping others. This is the most beneficial thing I got from this job and I loved it!

It is a great place to volunteer. Everybody is helpful and friendly.

A typical day at work consist of communicating with guest to ensure that all of their information is correctly put into the system. Answering telephone calls and providing answers to questions and transferring to other persons in the building. Typing documents such as letters and notes. Also making flyers for events. Working with co-workers in the building was fun and rewarding because I love to work with others. I enjoyed this job because I got to do what I love the most and that's helping other people, working on a computer, and being on a telephone.
