    Pros

    It is wonderful to work for an organization that is making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities. The company has made many improvements in terms of leadership, staff development, communications and culture.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, but not surprising since this is a nonprofit organization. The company has tried hard to advocate at the legislature for higher wages and we did all get 5% raises July 2014 as a result of a rate increase by the state.

    Advice to Management

    Our new CEO is moving us in the right direction by focusing on people, enhancing the culture, listening to staff and people served, and making improvements one step at a time. Keep this up and staff will be less likely to leave. Pay will always be an issue but keep trying to work on this so staff don't leave for higher paying jobs elsewhere.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Opportunity Partners (Coon Rapids, MN) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Semi-Independent Living Skills is a large field of work - the hiring process and interviewing emphasized the difference between typical human service jobs and this. This is loosely tied to to the type of work a social worker does. It's important that you are able to operate independently without the constant direction of a supervisor; be prepared to talk about flexibility and having a lot of initiative to do what needs to be done for the people who are served by the company. You will rarely have a cut and dry solution to everyday situations.
