Family Support Worker (Former Employee), Show Low, AZ – July 18, 2014
Pros: free luches and dinners when traveling long distances and paid car rentals
Cons: repetative documentation, long hours
Day started with documentation and then travel to clients location to transport, at end of day back to the office to do more documentation, I learned how to schedule my time as to not waste it, became a good manager of my time and office duties as an admin assist. Had an excellent and close relationship with my co-workers. The hardest part of my job – more... was when I had to transport the children back to their Foster Homes and leaving their parents, it was very sad for the children and difficult for the parents to be separated. When the children and parents were reunited and the parents were practicing their good parenting skills that I was able to teach and train them. – less
