Fun place to work, but can be overwhelming
NYAP was a great experience. The people that work there are all very supportive and understanding when it comes to helping out new people. I enjoyed working with both the supervisors I had during my time there. There were some concerns about not receiving adequate supervision, but it seemed like the supervisor of this position had to pick up all the slack from being short staffed so it made it difficult at times. The pay wasn't amazing, but they do pay a decent amount, plus you will get mileage reimbursement for driving to visits.
The only thing I disliked about this position was the overwhelming amount of paperwork involved. No one really prepared me for all the things I would have to be responsible for doing, and often times missed deadlines because there was just too much to do and not enough time to do it. NYAP does allow you to work from home or outside of the office to complete these things, which helps. Being in the office can become quite a distraction when everyone is in at the same time.
They will also pay for you to get a work cell phone, which I wish I would have done. They give out stipends for either a new phone, or to go towards your current phone bill. I wish I would have gotten a separate phone as the calls and texts from foster parents after hours was extremely frustrating, but that isn't the fault of the company.
Overall, I did not have a bad experience with NYAP and would consider returning in the future.
