Great place to work
Human Resources Clerk (Current Employee) –  Langhorne, PAJuly 17, 2017
Great place to work for. Co-workers are the best part. Extremely nice, and always a good atmosphere. The work is enough to keep you busy at all times. Could be a crazy day or could be an easy day. Just depends on the day. No complaints!

Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) –  Langhorne, PAJuly 3, 2018
great workplace environment. awesome staff. stressful days that go by very fast. Typical day starts early for 7-3 shift. Clients either go to work or to school during the day. I met plenty of friends that I will bond with forever.The hardest part of the day is getting there by 7am prompt every morning. No grace period. 7:01 is late.6 lateneses in are grounds for termination
Pros
always hiring

Unfriendly Environment
Residential Counselor (Former Employee) –  Langhorne, PAJune 21, 2018
A lot of cliques and favorites. Supervisors were dating the workers. If the worker didn't like you, they would try to get you fired. All of the workers who have been there a while hang together and give the new workers a hard time.
Pros
Working hours
Cons
Bad Environment

Toxic, abusive, childish
Teacher's Aide (Former Employee) –  Langhorne, PAApril 18, 2018
Working at woods, especially in the school is like being in the 13th grade. Gossipy, clique-ish and majority of the employees are grown people with children. No one is paid what they are worth, people rarely get raises and there is little to no potential for career advancement. There are those who are there simply for a pay check and that is apparent. The way the employees speak of the children to eachother and in front of the children as well as the way they treat them is disgusting and abusive. I could not stay and witness the mistreatment of those children that place should be shut down immediately. Woods should be more selective in their hiring process and have cameras everywhere.
Pros
Free lunches, easy work, lots of lay back time
Cons
pay, work environment, lack of opportunity, mistreatment

Woods Services was a good company to work for
Staff Counselor III (Former Employee) –  Langhorne, PAApril 18, 2018
Although the population of clients were sometimes a challenge, i appreciated the team work that i experienced while being at woods services. There was always overtime for anyone who wanted it. You grow to love your clients and enjoy the activities I was able to do with them.

great place to work , alot of overtime , meet new people
Staff Mentor (Current Employee) –  Langhorne, PAJanuary 28, 2018
typical day consist of helping and assisting staff to have a safe and productive day
I learned that you cant help everybody. and stay to yourself and mind your business.
management can be non sympathy and not understanding of what staff goes through.
workplace culture some staff have the ability to work together and other staff feel that they don't need or want anyone to tell them what and how to do things.
the hardest part of the job is not allowing other staff, supervisors etc to distract you from what you are there to do, and realize that you cant and don't take the clients home with you( staff getting attached to clients)
the most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the smiles on the clients face
AND THE OVERTIME!!!!

This is not a career , this isn’t a stable job .
Residential Counselor (Current Employee) –  Langhorne, PAJanuary 24, 2018
I’ve been working at woods for almost 2 Years now , their turnover rate is outrageous, they dont appreciate their employees at all . Any little allegation is an automatic suspension almost always ending in a termination . Without any just or reasoning it’s a at will job so they fore whoever for whatever and don’t need to explain why .
Pros
One meal free
Cons
No breaks . little pay . over worked

Requires a lot but doesn’t pay a lot as should
Residential Counselor (Current Employee) –  Langhorne, PAJanuary 14, 2018
Requires a lot from staff (physical, emotionally, psychologically..etc etc) but it’s very easy to get fired or suspend. The pay rates are terrible even if you have a college degree your pay rate is not enough. The only good thing about this company is that your able to do overtime (max is 6 in a 2 week pay period) . You literally have to live off of the over time because the regular pay is horrible. Along with your 2% raise each year. Which is terrible! Company is only good for people who are in school and trying to better there life so you could use this company as a career booster and something for your resume.
Pros
One free meal a shift, if commissary sends enough food.
Cons
No break and little pay even with a degree
