Youth specialist (Former Employee) – Far Rockaway, NY – December 26, 2018
SCO is great company because the have many programs. It is easy to grow and move around in their company. However, I think SCO can do better with hiring. It is very hard to get a call back by just applying online.
Intern (Current Employee) – East Flatbush, NY – January 18, 2019
A typical day at SCO Services is not bad at all i learn how to do a lot of different and i also am able to work in a space that i am uncomfortable in. Due to the fact that i love my job and would give it up because its very interesting. i would like to work somewhere farther from my school but for now i think where i am at would be good for a couple more months. I wanna expand my working experience in SCO Services because i know there more things out there to learn from other jobs that SCO Services has. So in advanced i do want to stay working for SCO but i wanna go further than where i am now.

RESIDENTIAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – West Babylon, NY – November 5, 2018
I had to learn to be comfortable with the kind of confrontation there is on a daily basis. I was able to learn and grow from it but to do it everyday all day was not for me. Before and after the confrontations it was very relaxing.
able to socialize with Residents, learn from them, help residents
Recreation Aide (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 30, 2018
To be honest SCO Crotona Inn is one of the worst paces that I have worked. I loved working with the kids and getting to know them but outside of that this place is terrible. They don't pay you what you deserve and they will work you like a slave. They are extremely short staffed and instead of hiring new people they will make the people that already work here work harder to cover those empty spots. They will claim that they don't have the budget to pay you more but they make millions of dollars just off of the people that live here. There is no way to grow and the people that have been here for 10 plus years are miserable and wish they have left earlier.
Managers try to be empathetic and understanding however scheduling could be better.
SCO Employee (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 16, 2018
I have worked for SCO for a number of years. My biggest complaint is the scheduling. Because the agency is so huge there are many potential schedules. This can be great for someone with extreme flexibility, however for most people work is not their life. SCO is not open to working with the employee and making them feel appreciated as a part of the agency. You often get the feeling that you are replaceable instead of feeling valued.
