Productive and fun place to work
Vocational Rehabilitation Technician (Current Employee), Virgin IslandsAugust 18, 2014
A typical day at work is assisting students with transitioning form school to work . making appointments .updating clients reports .and every Thursday is socialization with the clients

I have learned that every day I come to work is a new adventure with my clients and that they are people just me I see the ability and not the disability

Management – more... at times is difficult as far getting all the resource that is needed to run the day to day activity of the program but somehow we all make it work at the end of the day the client is the top priority
My co-worker is like my family .We work very well together

the hardest part of my job is also the most enjoyable part of my job it the clients that we serve I have been doing this for years now this is my calling . My clients make me want to come into work everyday . I really love what I do .I cant imagine doing anything else – less

Residential Counselor (Current Employee), West Chester, PAMay 13, 2014
Pros: helping people
Cons: no official breaks
There is no typical day at work for me, I work long days as the only person on weekend shifts. I am proficient and trusted enough to work shifts without an on site supervisor. My day deals with six different women in all walks of life, each with their own set of mental health disorders, trying to live together, get along and complete their personal – more... goals. I've learned that everyone responds differently to different approaches and if I'm attentive enough I can figure out the best strategies to help all of the women I work with. The hardest part of my job is getting others to realize their potential and self worth after they have had continuous set backs and rejections. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with someone and they finally "get it" and start maximizing the resources available to them and eventually are able to transition out of assisted living and into the community. – less

great program for the adults
Program Specialist (Former Employee), Johnstown, PAMarch 20, 2014
Every day the people would come into the program and either attend an outing that I may have had scheduled or they would do activities at their stations.
I learned that having a connection with the families was a priority in this job. I was blessed to have so many families eagerly involved in their children's lives. It was very hard to make that connection – more... at first, but the families earned my trust and were supportive of any ideas or concerns I may have had.
My co-workers were horrible to work with. I was the youngest and they were 40yrs old and above, been with the company for more than 15 years. I was their boss and they did no like change. I did not have support from management to find ways how we could compromise and make the work environment a positive atmosphere.
The most enjoyable part would be just spending some one on one time with the people. They all love life and they made you realize that life isn't all that bad. No matter what, they always had a smile on their face for you. – less

Working with others with high standards
Certified Nurses Assistant Certified (Former Employee), Brenham, TexasFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: working with different people and hearing about others lives
Cons: stress level can be high
A typical day at work was to provide a safe environment for the individuals I am to monitor. I have learned in all my jobs that every person has a stories and this is what makes everyone different. Each person deserves respect regardless of race, sex, or anything else that makes them different than the norm. When working managing can become stressful – more... because everyone each person has his or her own personal views and personalities. The hardest part is being able to put aside my own personal feelings to ensure that the service I am providing is one of a high standard. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping each person that I have come in contact with. – less
