Behavior Specialist (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 13, 2018
I applied for employment at the children's village. The first interview went great it was with four of their employee's and myself. I was asked to return the next day for a second interview. The second interview was three candidates myself included and two of their employees. The following day I was sent an email from the company that processes background checks and the person in charge of my potential employment. The background check took 6 days. It's been 4 weeks since the first interview. I have not been offered a job nor has anyone contacted me in regards to whether or not they chose to go with a different candidate.
Caseworker II (Current Employee) – Jamaica, NY – September 30, 2018
Typical day at work is documentation, supervised visits and making phone calls. Referring clients to services, preparing court reports, doing FASPs, setting up meeting, and/or doing home visits. Very exhausting day.
Being able to travel
Too much paper work, not enough pay for what case workers due, too much due dates and little time to complete everything
Office Manager (Former Employee) – Bronx NY – September 14, 2018
This company managers target people and than use staff to get information about staff. Not a very friendly place to work. The director of the Bronx office is racist. Since she’s been there 6 black staff have been fired. She faults them because they have to ability to do something that she can not. And that is have Children. The president of the company ignores the staff cries for help.
Good place for young people or people going to school
Youth Specialist (Current Employee) – Dobbs Ferry, NY – June 28, 2018
If you are looking for job while going to school or maintain another stream of income it’s ok. For young people looking for income it’s an okay job but if you are older and have great responsibilities to pay it’s not recommended.

Behavioral Therapist (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY 10458 – April 30, 2018
I love working with this company, I have been here 10 years and held 3 positions however I cannot understand how a person with 5 plus years experience cannot be qualified for a job because they do not have a Degree. It is unfair, this hinders people from growing within the company and the main reason why a lot of people have resigned.
Executive Assistant, Administration and Finance (Former Employee) – Dobbs Ferry, NY – April 30, 2018
My experience at CV left me with many questions about non-profit organizations. I loved the commute and the co-workers, but I felt that my responsibilities could have been balanced better. But unfortunately staff was limited to perform the responsibilities.
Foster Care Social Worker (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 7, 2018
Still friends to this day with my CV coworkers. You become family because you spend so many hours together in this terrible place. Ridiculously Long hours, poor planning and lack of support from management. Several members of management aren't even qualified for their positions.
Learning Assistant (Former Employee) – Dobbs Ferry, NY – March 4, 2018
I worked in the training department at The Children's Village. I loved the team I got to work with and there were always opportunities for you to do more. I had this job while I was in Graduate school, so it was perfect for where I was at at the time.
former teacher assistant (Former Employee) – Dobbs Ferry, NY – February 15, 2018
As an Assistant teacher i was doing the job of the Head teacher. She was alway gone , to an appointment or somewhere on her phone being loud and boisterous. everyday i was left by myself with up to 12 kids, once 13 because the daycare managed to have 13 kids in a room when there should only be 12 by law. very toxic environment. The kids were great, i loved them. they called on me so much that it was driving me crazy as evem they knew that they could only really rely on me in that room. Dont bother with management because its lousy. They director actually tells the lead teacher any and everything u complained about. once she said the lead teacher needed rest because it was stressful. i mean thats what she said in a meeting after i complained that she was out of the room waaay too much. then i complained to the director's boss and that went right over her head. I'd never leave my child at a place like that. if you genuinely love children and willing to work through the toxicity then be my guess , you will make the kids have someone to lioking forward to see, and bring some joy to their life.
experience to take along
mediocre pay but its a non profit place so thats expected.
