I love working at Vita because every day is different you never get bored. There is always something to do and something new to expect and hear. The clients look forward to be there everyday and they are all unique and different in their own way. They hardest part of the job is if one of the clients are not satisfied with their accomplishment for that day then they sometimes go home sad even though you try to encourage them. One of my funnest part of the job is when we take them out on field trips they always look forward to go on trips and visiting new places. Overall this job is very interesting and fun.

It was a good entry level job for those who just finish school and they train you for experienced level jobs. It is a job that if you are willing to settle down until retirement, it is good for you.

I found this agency to be a place for a start up position. You don't realize until later but management do not entirely value their employees and try to give their members everything without giving their staff a proper salary and part time staff do not even receive benefits. The hardest part of the job is trying to do the best for the members without having support from all parties (i.e. therapists, parents, etc.). It is hard enough to work with people with developmental disabilities, trying to give them the best success rate and not being able to do so is very frustrating. The front line staff work 12 hour shifts with the members but the therapist and management that come in a couple times a week for an hour or so are telling us what to do with the member. Depending on the staff that you work with that day, can really make the shift enjoyable depending on what you plan for the day. It is fun playing different games with the members. Depending on the staff, we will all get involved and make it fun for everyone.
