After working there for 17 years they fired me for getting angry in a meeting. They knew the stress I was under.

EmployeeWorked at The ARC Baltimore Inc at the time of review.

What I like

My supervisors and co-workers have been so supportive since I started. I have already been promoted and it feels great to belong.

What I dislike

The only thing I would suggest is to raise the salary because the duties that are done everyday can be exhausting and employees just want to feel valued.

Suggestions for improvement

AT this moment, I don't have any improvements.

EmployeeWorked at The ARC Baltimore Inc at the time of review.

What I like

The Arc has very intensive training. It does have testing and interactive participation, but it is to help you learn better. I have learned so much about the job so far. There is room for advancement after 90 days, which comes very quickly. I will be applying for a live in position that will give me a place to live and I can save up to purchase a vehicle.

What I dislike

I do wish I made a little bit more, but with the perks of growth and moving up, it is all worth it.

Suggestions for improvement

Right now, I don't have anything bad to say regarding improvements.
