Day Habilitation Specialist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 18, 2017
This job is beneficial if you enjoy taking care of ppl, over my 7 years of working at this company I can tell you the best part of the job is the individuals that you take care of, although the management can use some improvements, the guys you take care of will feel like family to you
Residential Counselor (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 4, 2017
Only opinion I can share during my current time of employment, is that this agency doesn't care if your a student. They want to be number one priority and nothing else matters. They don't work with their employees as far as making a temporary switch for a semester.
Don't work with students or people who has another job prior to there employment

direct care counselor (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – January 3, 2016
I worked the morning shift in the Bronx as a Direct Care Counselor. The shift began at 6am, which required me to get up at 4am to make provisions for travel. I was part time. I worked four hours a day from Mon-Wed and one full day on the weekends. A typical day required me to service the individuals making sure most of their domestic needs were met. (cooking, cleaning, laundry, and so on.) That part of the job was ok. It was working with SOME of the staff that left much to be desired. Very combative, disagreeable, Just down right mean.
Traveling in the wee hours of the morning in the winter is quite unnerving to say the least, however when I voiced my concerns about being called at 4:58 in the morning for a site change by a supervisor who gives poor directions. I was told my safety was not important. I could go on, but I'll stop here for the sake of time.
