Those who have a love to advocate for those who can’t advocate for themselves need to apply. If anyone seeking to be paid handsomely this isn’t the job for you.

It is really a good company to support individuals with special need . Planty of opportunity to develop / grow staff career

The organization was good to gain experiences and to grow in multiple ways . However , the management mainly focus on their business rather purely support members some times . Supervisors are over independent but some time helpful and some disadvantages also their like showing favours to certain staff . Creating opportunities for staff to ignore members need . It is fairly good company but needs some improvements to support members effectively

Group home

Poorly compensated for the work being done at Vita. Working with alot of under qualified people also which becomes very frustrating. Moving up to become a supervisor isn't even worth the pay as they are over worked. If you want to never see your family and not be appreciated then work for Vita.

Pros

Benefits package

Cons

Long hours / no appreciation

Vita Community Living is a fun place to work

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.

Entry level

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.

The staff working behind the curtain are absolutely amazing people. All of them are people we don't deserve (just kidding). The job itself is terrifically balanced with the work load and requirements.

Pros

Independant, Unique, Fun, Socially positive

Cons

Hardly any, Gas millage, benefits
