I am a Case Worker for SCO Family of Services. You start at $36,000 and WILL stay there unless you have a masters, then you will earn $40,000 and then will STAY there. You will not receive a raise at all, it's not in the budget. You are required to only for 35 hours a week, but will end up working overtime and not getting paid for it unless it's an "emergency" and you are expected to work until you get your work done, even though you won't get paid for it.
You get 12 sick days when you work there for 3 months. You will get 20 vacation days after 6 months of work. Which is extremely generous and trust me, you will need to use them because this job is extraordinarily exhausting.
Traveling is mandatory and much more than you are told when hired. You will be expected to travel to the boroughs multiple times a week/ a day no matter what.
Caseloads are extremely high and unfair. You will be worked until you quit. People tend to cap out at 6 months - 12 months.
It is a great experience and the children and youths you work with make it worth it, but beware.
Never get to take your break, no over time, high case loads, low salary, no advancement
