Easier to keep them
Company’s will eventually/hopefully wake up to the fact that it’s better to work with good employees to keep them than continuously ,shop for employees in a never ending loop of less dedicated ones .

section 8 housing
Building I worked in was nasty, trashy people lived there, bed bugs in apts, Oder of weed in hallways all the time, gang members lived there, I moved a bed once to get at an outlet and there was a hand gun under the bed, come to find out a felon was living there. Not the safest place to be if you got called in at night,
Pros
I left
Cons
Yes they lived there!!!

Passionate, mission drive organization
Most departments have opportunities for advancement because the organization is constantly growing. Staff, from top down, are welcoming and generally understanding of different situations. There is a vibrant work culture with opportunities to get involved outside of your department. Great benefits...paid time up increases with the number of years at the organization. I go to work everyday, loving my job and how I am able to impact the communities and residents that we serve

The company has a great mission.
They have grown too fast and tend to forget to about the current properties that have been struggling. They don't have enough employees to accommodate the work load required at each property.

I love working with my cowokers; very diverse population that I work with.
I work with a very diverse population of clients who may have mental and physical disabilities, alcoholism, substance abuse, and homelessness. The population I work with can be a challenge everyday, but I learn something new about the population that I work with everyday.

Treating individuals with respect and dignity is the key to success when working in customer service.

Years Wasted
I worked for Dwelling Place of Grand Rapids for years. Dwelling Place does not pay you want your worth. They claim that they can afford to give raises due to the economy. But yet and still they continue to build, and remodel buildings. They also do not promote with in with company as far as lower level positions are concerned and it doesn't matter if you have a degree or not. They also dont care about the safety of their staff. Their buildings have drugs,threatening residents to staff and they could careless.
Pros
stable schedule and hours, personal, sick, and vacation days ( whether your full or part time) pretty laid back
Cons
no advancements, properties are not safe, no raises

Unprofessional
Dwelling Place of Grand Rapids hired me to work part time, but scheduled me for full time hours. They refused to pay me benefits because I was a part time employee. They did allow time to take care of family needs because of a FMLA request.
Pros
hours
Cons
no advancement and using employees

Well...
A decent place to work, but the company is eliminating its entire security staff and outsourcing to another company in the next month or two.
