Suggestions for improvement

  • Making positive adjustments to all worker salaries would be my first and biggest step. I would also provide more opportunities for doing paid overtime work.

What I like about the company

I feel like in my line of work that I am making a difference in the community by working on the behalf of people who are in need of what Social Services has to offer.

Although the overall pay is not to my satisfaction, the paychecks are at least consistent and an improvement over past job situations.

What I dislike about the company

I do not feel I am getting properly compensated, as I am in a constant state of worrying about debt and worrying about whether I need to take on additional jobs to make a living.
