Middle/upper management makes work unbearable
Program Associate (Former Employee) – White Bear Lake, MN – February 16, 2017
Middle/upper management has made working at PAI in White Bear Lake unbearable. Not sure about the other sites, but Parkway is struggling with deplorable staff to individual ratios. No employee should be responsible or liable for 19 individuals divided into two rooms, especially when other programs in the building are working with 5 staff for 14 individuals.
Also, the wages the people we serve are not in sync for the current trends in this industry. Every person deserves to make, at least, minimum wage, regardless of their disabilities.
Good benefits. Great coordinators and instructors.
Unrealistic expectations. Site is run like a continuation of public school.
