FUSE CASE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 18, 2018
Overall loved my job, my team, my direct supervisor and clients. The upper management however has lost sight of the mission and there is a lot of turnover which is detrimental to the clients. It's a shame because if they had listened to employee concerns I would still be there.
Desk Clerk - 1st Shift Weekends (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 30, 2018
Typical day of work is busy with resident activity. I learned that people from all walks of life need support and mostly compassion. The workplace culture was okay. Interaction with other employees was very limited due to the shift worked and weekend hours which also made it the hardest part of he job. The most enjoyable part of he job was meeting new people and becoming knowledgeable about the residents and their day to day interactions with myself and others.
Supporitve Services (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – April 14, 2018
If you're thinking about your professional future, don't work here. I left a job at this agency and other potential employers questioned my fit with them because they didn't think I'd actually learned how to be a mental health professional at this job. The agency's reputation has declined nocticably in the community.
Supportive Services Specialist (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 27, 2018
The day to day work in this job is demanding, but it is worthwhile because the clients need your help. Nothing will prepare you for how little the agency actually cares for its case managers or the clients. That makes it impossible to stay in a difficult job, for mediocre pay, with no room for growth.
Management is divisive, clients are wonderful but extremely challenging
Client support staff/ case manager (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – November 4, 2017
The change in management is the reason I left. The clients were wonderful, but very challenging at times. The mission of the agency used to be supported by all the passionate staff. Unfortunately, this ended with change in leadership. High burn out and lack of support from the agency quickly killed the programs' success and clients' progress. I would love to still be involved with the clients in a volunteer capacity, but the volunteer dept was cut.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Suffolk, VA – August 1, 2017
Greeting and assisting residents with work order requests. One on one interaction with residents, collection of rents. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the local church comes in to have service and holiday parties for the residents.
Helping those who qualify for transitional housing with a positive outlook.
Property Manager (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – June 16, 2015
A typical day at work includes walking the property inside and out to make sure the appearance of the building is clean and to notate any repairs need to be completed by the maintenance staff. I enjoy my co-workers because we all work as a team environment. Because this organization houses formally homeless individuals it is hard when someone has a mental episode. But overall the job is rewarding.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – November 17, 2014
A typical day for me includes explaining the organization's services and eligibility requirements to prospective clients. If individuals are Veterans, then I conduct an initial screening on them; based on what information they tell me will determine if he/she is eligible for services, and if so, for which ones. I assist my co-workers in time-sensitive projects if and when my schedule allows me to. I have tremendously enhanced my verbal and written communication skills because clear communication is vital for my job. I get along very well with my co-workers and feel very welcome and comfortable in my work environment. The hardest part of my job would be that it is currently only part-time. I feel that I would benefit most from a full-time job that would allow me to expand my time and resources. The most enjoyable part of my job would be when I learn that an individual who I did a screening on and who I spoke with multiple times, has been permanently housed.
