Case Manager (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – June 11, 2018
Unfriendly, cut-throat environment. I learnt not to trust other workers. Management was horrible, supervisor did not know how to communicate with employees. The best part of the job is assisting the clients, and the hardest part is when a client over dose on drugs

A typical day is fast pace. you have to have patience with the clients and staff. The hardest part is trying not to make any mistakes. It can cost you your job. The most enjoyable is there is never a dull moment, room for growth, and great benefits.
NYC Disaster Case Manager (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 14, 2018
Was a great opportunity to be introduced to providing clinical services through the hurricane Sandy relief program. A contracted assignment where I learned advocacy, outreach, and how to provide referrals for additional services.
House Manager/ Shift Supervisor (Full Time) (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – January 18, 2018
Keep positive. Remember why you came to the company in the first place. One thing with this company you have to speak up for yourself respectfully. Management tends to place staff where they want no matter if you can work it or not. Make sure you keep a paper trail. Always make sure you have proof of what you have a complaint about.
Supervisors were patient and supportive, they were very helpful to my growth in this modality. Co-workers were also helpful.
House Manager (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – January 5, 2018
I was there to do a job. I showed up everyday to do that job, could have and should have made better decisions while employed there but I failed to do so. Have nothing bad to say about my former co-workers and supervisors. I am however grateful for the experience and the opportunity it gave me.
Shipping & Recieving/Prep Cook/Head Line Cook (Former Employee) – Hughson, CA – December 19, 2017
As an employee with Samaritan was a great learning experience. Co workers are friendly and encouraging and supportive. Management was supportive in all aspects of work issues. The most enjoyable part of my working days was talking with the residents when meals were served.
Receptionist/Office Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 13, 2017
I enjoyed working with Samaritan Village. It's hard sometimes and is emotionally difficult but it's a super rewarding job with an amazing team. I just wish corporate was a bit more communicative with it's employees.
Poor Company to work for. Hire people who have no clue and expect work to be productive
Former employee (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – November 15, 2017
Poor management. Do not work here unless you have no skills. Management does not address issues and hire people who do not know what the heck they are doing. Upper management are snobs! HR do not assist employees when they have real issues. They cover for the managers when they have overstepped their boundary and blame the employee for doing the right thing!
Cook (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 7, 2017
i have no problem working in the homeless shelter field because i love to help individuals as a team we are required to assist one another and also be a cohesive unit. Samaritan Village gives you that opportunity.
Employment Specialist/Career Coach (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – September 22, 2017
A typical day at work would be conducting group session on employment. I also assisted with resumes and prepared clients for interview questions. I conducted mock interviews and escorted clients to appointments.
Driver Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – September 20, 2017
The benefits are good, but managment is very cut throat and petty. People are constabtanly quitting and getting fired. Whemn that ghappends be prepare to work more hours, more days and an inconstant scedule. You can say goodbye to you personl life.
Employment Specialist/Case Manager (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – September 16, 2017
I left Samaritan Village due to personal medical issues associated with my wife, and has at this stage been resolved. But. Samaritan Village was very inconsiderate and non supportive in their handling of my situation which caused me to have second thoughts about the sort of company I devoted myself to. The agency is one which care more about numbers, data and percentages then their employees. No room for advancement unless connected to the right people; more of who you know then what you know. I attended night school in order to become a more indispensable employee with more professional knowledge of numerous positions - in case I'm needed to fulfill a task that is not in the realm of my title and duties. None of that mattered.
