Working at PA Mentor has its pros and cons
Recertification Coordinator (Current Employee) – Broomall, PA – October 10, 2018
As a recertification coordinator, a typical day of work includes overseeing and managing all foster homes in our designated areas. Duties include notifying program service coordinators of health and safety assessment due dates, conducting health and safety assessments for homes without clients or with clients which we do not provide case management services, auditing and maintaining mentor/foster parent files, providing foster parents with required training material for each quarter of our fiscal year, and completing background checks. Additionally, I am responsible for maintaining files for the clients which we do not provide case management services to - something that I was unaware of until a month in a half into starting at mentor. I have 8 years of experience in counseling/direct support and wanted to break away from that in order to pursue an administrative career path, which this position has allowed me to do. Management is okay. My direct supervisor is a joy to work with and everyone else in management that I’ve met is very helpful and kind. I, also, enjoy being around my coworkers and find the environment to be extremely welcoming and nonjudgmental. The hardest part of this job is feeling as though I don’t get paid enough for the amount of work I do, which is A LOT. I, also, find it difficult to wear more than just my position’s hat. However, I really enjoy the work that I do and I think that combined with the environment that I’m in is the best part of working here.
