Family Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 23, 2018
In my department morale was so low and management kept finding ways to lower it more. Management was not supportive or caring. The only perk was the flexibility in your work schedule but when I left they were stopping that. For demanding employees to have college degrees for the position I held, they didn't pay enough for that. Not a great place to grow and advance. Most people stay in the same positions for 15 years.
Lack of growth opportunities, dead end, poor management

Great people great benefits I recommend it. People are here to help. Hurts me to leave because of the great office environment and also the great people that work in this office. I learned so much and I will take all that I have learned put it in use to my next employer.

Working at Crystals Stairs is rewarding for someone that is trying to build experience. It is fast paced and you can not slack. Benefits were great. Management was unprofessional. There was a lot of office politics, gossip and mess being kept up. Managers had favorites, and took Specialist orders regarding staff.

Management offers no support It is a power trip No support, if someone does not like you, you are pretty much on your own. Its extremely stressful when your supervisor does not have your back because she's trying to fit in.
Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 29, 2017
This company uses the fact that it is non-profit as an excuse to over work and under pay their employees. The opportunity for advancement is very limited unless you are willing to brown nose and be apart of the egotistical cliques. This company does not mind wasting money on training new employees, instead of hiring from within. Great starter job for young individuals who aren't aware of their rights. Not a long term job unless you are a Program Manager and above. Employees are definitely there to help others, because with the low pay...they will not be able to help themselves.
Great concept, compassionate ACT.
The blantant abuse of the programs kills the enjoyment of helping parents in need.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Culver City, CA – March 28, 2017
Depends on what department you work in. Some departments are highly unorganized with massive case loads. They put important the cases in the hands of temps with little or no training. There are constant budget cuts so you are always at risk for being laid off even if you have worked there for years. Again, it depends on the department you work in.
Unorganized, and constantly at risk for being laid off
I love working with children so ill have to say the environment & flid im in is grate
Childcare Provider (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 13, 2017
I'll honestly say the job is basic I make sure the kids go to school on time and I pick them up on time followed by taking them either to their house or mines and help them with their homework make sure they eat a snake before their mother comes in to pick them up.
Claims Processor II (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 13, 2016
company is flexible, I have learned to be more talkative and get along well with my coworkers. I don't think there is any hard part in my job, as long as you follow rules, guide lines, policies & take care of your work, all should be fine. I enjoy being able to work with others and my schedule 8-5.
Family Services Specialist (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 3, 2016
A typical day at work is completing task, returning phone calls, recertifying families to receive child care services, authorize care based on income and need eligibility. I have learned to be patient and time management skills. My co workers are a pleasure to work with and are very helpful, team work all the time. The hardest part of the job is to keep my clients satisfied at all times. The most enjoyable part of the job seeing my clients smile because I know I have done my job.
Work at you pace as long as you are in compliance.
Caretaker (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 25, 2016
A typical day at work was a 6am-1pm shift, I would take the kids to school, feed them, make sure they were presentable, standard stuff. I learned that every child is different, and they all need attention, so as you go, you learn to become very patient. The hardest part of the job was the paperwork, I felt like I never understood what I was suppose to do exactly and the way things were set up was complicated but it all worked out. The most enjoyable part was the actual job, it was pretty easy and fun.
