Influencing the Future

Regional Supervisor (Current Employee) Jackson, TN

ProsI have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of children and their families. We each work hard to foster positive changes as we believe everyone deserves a chance to have the best life possible. I appreciate the flexibility allowed to ensure my family is taken care of when challenges arise. I work with great group of people and appreciate the opportunities for advancement. It is simply rewarding every time a family is successful. It is the best feeling when a child is successful and is given a chance. This is what we do!

ConsThis job is simply not for everyone. There are a lot of requirements to ensure success. However, we do whatever it takes. We work hard but take time to play when we can to ensure we give our all to each and every child and family. The long hours can be taxing but the end results make it all worthwhile.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
