    Pros

    Great staff! You learn a lot and gain lots of experience working with patients with Mental, developmental, and behavioral disabilities!

    Cons

    You really can't work your way up. If you work in a group home and want to work up to be a manager, its tough. They would prefer to bring in someone new, than move up their staff. A lot of decisions are made in management concerning the homes, but its obvious that they don't ask staff their opinion before they make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It'll be good to talk to the people to spend time the most with the patients/consumers before making drastic decisions. Its obvious that those in management make decisions without knowing what really goes on in the houses and how it affects staff. It'll be nice for management to ask staff their opinion on certain matters since they spend time with the patients/consumers daily.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Easter Seals.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process went by very quickly. I sent in an online resume via the website. I later got a call back to set up a face- to-face interview. The interview was with the director of rehab/autism team. It was a very basic interview where I was asked about myself and about my past experiences in rehab. She wanted to know how I felt about Autism Spectrum since many kids there are ASD.

    Negotiation Details
    As a non- profit , they tell you they are offering you all they are able to. But different employees are paid more to do the same job.

A year round effort that has nothing to do with Easter, seals, or flowers, the National Easter Seal Society annually helps more than 1.3 million children and adults with disabilities through over 550 service centers in the US, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Australia. The organization offers medical rehabilitation, job training, child care, and adult day services. It began in 1907 as the National Society for Crippled Children and launched its first "seal" campaign around Easter in 1934. Supporters placed stickers or seals depicting the lily, a symbol of renewal, on letters and... More
