Suggestions for improvement

  • Correct the promotion system to be fair. I would work on a better system to praise staff members. Currently we work in a phone center and are harassed daily about what we are doing. Processing centers are not under the scrutiny as we are.

What I like about the company

The pay and benefits are nice. Easy going atmosphere

What I dislike about the company

Promotion system is highly flawed and racevabd gender are heavily weighted in decisions. Promotions should be based on knowledge and ability, not race, ethnicity and gender.

  • The only thing I would recommend is a higher pay rate

What I like about the company

I love the freedom to conduct home visits, company vehicles are readily available if you don't want to use the mileage of your own vehicle, my supervisor values my opinion when making the decision to remove a child or leave the child in the home, and my supervisor is very understanding of my situation at home with my dad.

What I dislike about the company

The pay is very low and doesn't match the severity of our jobs and caseloads

Suggestions for improvement

  • security and the way our front desk area is set up. it needs to be more private for clients and for us to spwak to others. it needs to be more kid friendly also

What I dislike about the company

senority really needs to be looked at and fonsidered priority. we have been there longer and should have rank over the newbies.
