Good work enviorment, day went by quick, this job let me help others.
Senior Clerk (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 24, 2012
I worked anywhere from 8 to 12 hour days, Monday's through Friday's and if needed Saturday also. I would check my voicemail, call clients & utility companies, verified documents, also helped with intake at front desk when a client wanted to speak to a supervisor, I was one of two team leads who would answer questions, train 50 to 70 employees on the – more... Liheap system, & help with some computer issues. This position was a great learning experience, I have basic training in Excel, Word, & PowerPoint, I had to keep up with the documents because the criteria would or could change each year. My bosses and co-workers were easy and fun to work with.
The hardest part of this job was having to tell someone that I could not help them. The best part of this job was doing intake at events and being able to help families in need. – less

Learning made
Head (Former Employee), Chicago Heights, ILJuly 9, 2012
Pros: friendships, respect, and the hours.
Cons: not having the proper training
A typical day at CEDA consists of a loving environment where you felt like you belong, happy staff (co-workers and management), you were more of a family that was your home not your work place. You walk into the classroom and greeted by co-workers,children and sometimes the children family(ies).
I learned while working at CEDA is that the myth that – more... all women can't work together because they won't be able to get along is not true, we all got along fine, and respected each other.
Management at CEDA was great, management would walk into the classroom and acknowledge your appearance, not just saying hello, but holding a conversation about the children art on the walls anything that may have happened on her way to work, sometimes she would ask about your family at home, how you are doing?.
The hardest part of this job, I would have to say was not having the training to work with children who was diagnosis with either a learning disability or illness and didn't have the training to work with them.
The most enjoyable part of this job is making friends, being appraised for your work, the trainings that enhanced my knowledge of how to be a better teacher and knowing that I had a part in teaching children social and academic skills that would help them in our world. – less
