Working with youth was great; everything else wasn't
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Roanoke, VASeptember 10, 2018
The actual working with students was great, everything else was the drizzling s$%ts. No active management. Workplace bullying is/was rampant. If you don't fit a certain image for a role, you WILL be railroaded out. Watched it happen to two people, then it happen to me. I learned the definition of gas-lighting and work place bullying from this place. If i had handled it properly, and documented I would have got them for millions and would be sitting on a beach somewhere. But I cared about the job too much. Construction program, along with others, are often just facades for grants and the money is then placed anywhere else they can get away with. Watched students who were entirely capable of the completing the program be turn away because of instructors personal taste in people. When TAPs programs struggle and they ask the community for help. It is a problem they create because the community is aware of their practices.
Pros
Can get away with a lot, because of horrible top down management
Cons
Horrible top down management

Human Resources Director (Former Employee) –  Roanoke, VAJuly 30, 2017
Best job I have ever had the opportunity to have for 10 years. This is a beautiful non-profit that helps many, many people and gives a second chance to those in need who would not have an opportunity to have elsewhere. TAP has a big heart with beautiful people who work there who sincerely love the population served. I would return if an opportunity arose. GREAT place to work and be a part of a team.
Pros
benefits, flexible schedules, great people
Cons
I left for greener grass which I found was fake.

Data Entry Operator (Current Employee) –  Roanoke, VAAugust 8, 2016
A typical day at TAP start with meet and greet everyone with hello's and laughter. After all of the greeting have been done I would then sit down to start entering my data into the computer using the folders that I have on each individual. I work in ex-offender program, so each day is different but fun. The building is always full of people coming in needing help or wanting to find out where they can go to get the help.
