Project Management and Project Control Specialist (Current Employee) – Cherry Hill, NJ – March 30, 2018
The work varies from a slow paced environment to a very quick paced one sporadically. It depends entirely on how much work we get. When it is fast paced, everyone is desperate to get assistance to meet deadlines.
Directional Driller (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – January 7, 2018
Pathfinder is a great place to work. The office lets you do your job and doesn't interfere. The coordinators were professional and helpful. would love to work for them again. the only reason I left was because of slowdown.
it is a good place to work at if you are responsible. i would recommend for persons that have a girl friend or family to try something else. for the most part you are out of town . you work 6 weeks and get one off.
Staff Field Nurse (Current Employee) – Katy, TX – October 27, 2017
A good agency with excellent clinicians and office staff. Clinical staff very caring for their patients and go above and beyond. Upper management apparently made some bad decisions that have resulted in closing the local office due to having to return reimbursement to third party payors. Patients, families, and referral sources are going to miss this agency.

HR Specialist (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, AR – April 11, 2016
It is an organization that works with individuals from birth through adult-hood with special needs. It can be rewarding and flustrating as well. I do not personally work hands on with the individuals being in HR and training, but do see the hardships that arise with the programs as with any programs that are effected with budget cuts. We have great programs, and some really great people, at times we hit the bottom as people also get flustered with pay and fighting the red tape, but without this company and those who put their hearts before their pay-checks so many individuals would not have the love, homes, and hope as many do now and excel where if not had the opportunity would never amount or think they amount to anything. I worked for the Veterans Administration, and the same thing with the budget cuts, we recruit them, send them to fight for our country, promise them the world and then pull the carpet out from under them when are no more use to us. This is only how I think most of our Veterans and individuals with disabilities feel and fight for everyday, to feel productive and important. Our Nation should work just as hard for those whose who have served us with Freedom, and those who want to serve if just with a smile, we so judge a book by its cover.
Variety of positions, full and part-time.
Some benefits, but not good affordable health plans, leave plans.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, AR – February 17, 2016
The mission of Pathfinder is what I appreciate the most, It promotes the ability for person who have Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities the opportunity to obtain some type of independence. While they live here they are learning how to do daily life skills, and one day may be able to live a productive life on their own. My typical day at work is to make sure all IPP's are complete, and state and federal paperwork is completed. Pay any outstanding bills our residents may obtain from doctor visits. Make sure all state and HUD regulations are rendered within files and the facility. The most enjoyable part of the job is the residents that have these disabilities. You began to love them as family and they began to as well. I work with very limited supervision. I also work along side a house manager and we have to communicate in order to keep the facility running in compliance, which we have done for over several years. The hardest part of the job is being the best role model for our residents, while maintaining your job responsibilities and a good rapport with your superior.
Great learning environment for an up and coming worker
Intern (Former Employee) – Cherry Hill, NJ – February 3, 2016
My experience in two summers at Pathfinder were very valuable towards my future. I had the pleasure of working with very friendly co-workers, learning first hand how to properly communicate with professionals, and gain incite to different online programs. The most enjoyable part of the job was doing research in different fields and learning about all of the decisions and factors that go in to making these types of project management decisions. The hardest part of the job was on occasion there were some slow work days where I was left trying to find something productive to do.
Friendly workers, reasonable driving distance, great learning experience
