job experience will always be different for everyone since it will depend on whose child you are taking care of, but if you love working with children, then this is the place for you.

I enjoyed the work offered in Channel Islands Social Services due to it being very flexible and the possibility of relatively low stress, depending on the clients served. CISS had yearly Staff meetings and displayed a positive and grateful attitude towards their employees. While I worked only part-time for four years, they did offer some full-time work and benefits.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Rarely full-time

Channel Islands is a great place to work because you can control when you work by telling them your availability. At Channel Islands Social services being a caregiver also means being someones friend. The people you care for will more than likely love every time you spend time with them. The feeling where you can make someone's day just by spending some time with them is a great feeling and I will always try to do that no matter what.
Pros
Paid mileage

awesome staff and very family oriented culture. The company really cares not only for clients and families but also has made sure their employees get the best benefits and pay. The company, that I know of so far in the Ventura County area, is the only company to actually pay Respite Caregivers above the minimum wage.
Pros
Salary, Schedule
Cons
None
