Case Manager (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – July 5, 2018
Flexibility is the name of the game as a case manager at CWS. The rewards are great when it comes to making a difference in someone's life. Case managers spend 20 percent of time in a data base and reporting. The rest of the time is spent in direct client care.
Refugee Case Manager (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – February 13, 2018
Nothing much to say about this working environment ‘and it’s good place to help some one new to the country by welcoming them and assist them by helping them getting their basic necessary needs as soon as they land to their last destination.Part of the hardest part of this position I should say would be getting clients benefits on time which is not in our control .
Working for a non-profit comes with a lot of responsibilities and little benefits is all I can say, If sitting in a cubical is your thing by all means go get it. It wasn't for me. You need to be nice when people are working for such wages. Just saying.

American Culture and English tutor (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – January 20, 2018
Nice people dedicated to helping refugees. They are supportive of eachother and open about the stresses of the job. If their funding source is going to go sideways, there's no other set of people I'd want to be with while life went side ways.

I worked in the employment department at CWS as an intern. The staff were so helpful and willing to teach me about their various positions. The staff were inclusive and there were many staff events to attend. The staff were passionate. My supervisor was supportive and welcoming to me as a intern.
Tough environment, some caused by the external conditions
VP Operations (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 5, 2015
The financial situation is shaky, and the current leaders have little idea of how to solve this situation. On the other hand, the work that is being done in the field is lead by top professionals whose care, concern, and quality of response is top drawer.

Intern (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – January 20, 2015
The agency is constantly busy with clients. They assist with everything from pre to post arrival, furnishing apartments, and establishing a plan to become self efficient. The amount of paper work can be gruesome but the smile on your clients face makes everything worth it.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – El Centro, CA – November 17, 2014
I had a wonderful 7 years working for this employer. I felt like my work meant something and helped many. On a typical day I would work in a locked secured facility run by the Department of Homeland Security. I worked with detainees and refugees from other countries in order to provide them with all of their religious and spiritual needs. This was very satisfying work. Detainees were very grateful for all I did for them. I started a detainee library so that they had access to reading materials in their language and faith. I mainly worked with ICE officers and administrators.
hours, flexibility of schedule, meals were $1.25 inside the facility
not an excellent retirement plan, medical insurance changes
