Case Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 15, 2018
There is an epidemic of K2 use that nothing is being done about. Ive seen residents passed out on the bathroom floors, in the hallways, and laundry room. Overdoses are frequent and paramedics arrive at least 4 times a week. My former co workers are fickle and some of the female staff is snooty(too close to residents). Besides the employment/school managers, Residents need better care and motivation to have a chance at success at reintergration.
Be prepared to work a lot of overtime, and sacrifice your free time for this company. The top directors working there can be very childish and cruel. Otherwise, it's a fine place to work. It's an easy job. I got along with all of my coworkers. If you're cool with working with convicted felons, the job is not hard and can even be pretty fun at times. It's just that the hours are so demanding. 60+ hours a week was too much for me personally.
The place could be better to work at, need better management involved. My experience was good overall, working in the Day Reporting Program was really great, morning meetings and daily groups through out the day. I participated in groups and facilitated groups they were really fun and great feed back from the clients.

Majority of the directors, including the head of HR and the cite administrator, are hypercritical and incapable of leading. They are a bunch of snakes in the grass. The motto there is firm fair and consistent and no one follows it. They need to bring back their old management team before it goes under ground.
Senior Case Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 3, 2018
You receive great experience within the field of criminal justice. The staff was great. I managed about 8 people and they made my job easy for the most part. Upper management make all the money so if you can work your way up, you'll be set. I was able to receive a promotion about 1.5 years in. Kintock is one of the best Halfway Houses around.
Parole Services Liaison (Current Employee) – Newark, NJ – February 7, 2018
A typical day consists of interaction with an inmate population, which includes males/females of all backgrounds and ages. Working here I have learned a lot about the criminal justice system as well as how to deal with different attitudes of inmates and staff. I believe the culture of the company has changed because of the changes in management over the years. I've noticed that the staff morale is really low, which contributes to the high employee turnover rate and I believe management should communicate and interact more with staff to bring some resolve to this issue. What I enjoy most about the job is being able to help others, especially those who have committed crimes are re-entering into the communities that we live in. Maybe if they see that someone cares, other than their family members, then maybe they will want to do better to become productive members of society.
Kintock is a community corrections facility no ping pong tables for employees

Not a career move, low, not appreciated by management. Modern day slavery. Your dealing with grown children. It's a good start if you cant find something else. Looks good on your resume if you're fresh out of college.
I love the work it was fast paced, there was something to do most of the time it was fun, the hours were a little hard i have children. While i was pregant some mangers would make me stand for another eight hour shift it was unbearable they had favortisim with my co workers.
Supervisors were kind and helpful. No high school diploma was required so some co workers didnt understand compassion or respect. l did not like being responsible over people. They were capable of making there own decisions.
Counselor (Current Employee) – Newark, NJ – August 31, 2017
I started working and it was going okay they have changed supervisors three times within one year. They all come in in trained with new rules that make no sense. They receive no training for the position before they get in it. they are allowed to do any thing because there is no policy or procedure book to follow.
Loved the job and the people. The biggest problem is to advance within you have to put in your time and also continue your education. It is non-profit so the pay and benefits may not meet everyone's expectations.
