Providing the best care in the North State to individuals with developmental disabilities!!!
Administrator (Current Employee), Redding, CA – August 19, 2014
Pros: 8 straight hour shifts
Cons: no benefits, i.e. 401k, medical, vision, paid vacation, on-call 24/7
I manage a residential home for adults with developmental disabilities with a special interest in dual diagnoses and highly behavioral individuals. I manage all staffing schedules involved with the facility as well as provide training to all staff members to promote a smooth operating facility that remains in compliance with Ca. W & I Code Title 17 – more... & Title 22 of the Lanterman Act of 1970. A typical day consists of balancing Administration duties as well as direct care supervision of the individuals served. Not only were direct care supervision duties implemented but staff training was implemented as well. The hardest part of the job was matching the work schedule with all the staff's personal schedules, i.e. schooling, personal, and/or other professional requests. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the individuals grow by using the trainings implemented and gaining their own independence as well as working towards more normalization. – less

Staff and management are friendly and willing to go the extra mile for there employes.The only reason I left was the lack of pay on contracts.The rates on the work they had was to low and they couldn't get any other contracts.
Special Education Assistant (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – May 21, 2014
Cons: pay wage
I walk into work and follow my set schedule of classes that are in need of assistance specifically the special needs students, but also ordinary students as well. Throughout this semester I've learned patience and motivation in the process of helping High School students especially when preparing for test. The level of maturity begins to self motivate – more... the kids to study which makes my job easier and worth it. A student who wants to learn will learn even through life hardships. The hardest part about my job would be students who don't have the mindset or motivation to learn, but rather waste time and don't look at they're future well being. – less

Title I Nonpublic School Teacher (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – February 27, 2014
Pros: good benefits, peer collaboration, no weekend or holiday hours, awesome opportunities to interact with the community
Cons: growth and security are uncertain
A typical day is fast-paced and student-centered. Meetings, breaks, and peer conversations are all used to plan for student achievement, and every moment is used to its maximum potential. I learned to be even more organized, flexible, and efficient. I have also learned to engage parents in their child's education with a charisma I did not possess as – more... a first year teacher.
Working in IPS has its challenges. It is sometimes hard to balance the challenges of single parenthood while working the extra hours needed to provide my family with financial security and improve student success. However, finding out what makes a student click and watching the light bulb of understanding go off is an amazingly rewarding feeling.
Management is under construction right now, so it is an uncertain time right now. – less
ADMINISTRATION CLERK (Former Employee), Johannesburg, GP – January 16, 2014
Pros: no free lunches
Cons: working long hours only on the last day of the month it was fun eventhough
only on month end when when we have to finish aall the work that came in that day.be yourself and be patient. best management ever in this world.best co-workers and supportive and loving people.best job ever.when they give one branch to sort.
preparation of external transfers,or preparation of salaries from clients. work was rotated on a three month basis. capturing of instructions and payment of salaries. also did other capturing on systems. balancing was done at the end of the day. i learned how to be pro-active,solving mistakes and problems in department. too many personalities,too many – more... levels of "bosses" to get the job done,everyone has an opinion of how things should be done. for me there should be clear instruction of how things should be done and handled as the company requires. the hardest part of the job to get people to work together and see things the same way. too many people who wanted to change things all the time,created chaos and more queries at the end of the day. most enjoyable to get things done, finish a query or solve a problem. – less
