Pros: make your own schedule, helping families who need it, working with some great kids, being apart of a often heartfelt company
Cons: could be out late, expensive maintenance for personal vehicle, can be violent or dangerous clients/families
It used to be a fantastic place to work.. Co workers asked you how you're day was and really wanted to know how you were feeling. Then it seems everything became more about money. They kept changing their operations all the time only to change them back to the original over and over again.
Got to work with some fantastic families, children, coworkers – more... and used to be some good Case Managers to work with from CPS.
Unsteady job security, some months it's steady and strong then others they're talking about laying people off.
Made your own schedule which was always great for personal planning.
Could be out late hours on a regular basis.
Have to use personal vehicle for work so car could be stained, destroyed and have 150k miles on it before you even realize it. Car also needs oil change monthly because of the high use, so a lot of extra expenses for your own vehicle maintenance.
Working with CPS Case Managers, they never want to listen to you about any input you may have. – less
