    I have been working at South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation Department as an intern

    Pros

    The State of South Carolina is determined to provide the best possible service to those with a disability and have a genuine desire to return to work. I have seen the program "in action" and those that complain about any element, should reconsider just how blessed they are. The resources made available to qualified South Carolinian's is nothing short of staggering! The Job Readiness Training Center, that one person was complaining about, is designed to prepare a consumer to smoothly transition into a position of employment in the public sector. This training is strictly voluntary - you are not required to participate in it. I would encourage anyone to compare this program to any other program both nationwide and universally.

    Cons

    No program is perfect, but I believe that an honest attempt is made to identify weaknesses and do everything possible to resolve them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job!


  2. I loved working in this company! If I had to choose any job field to work in, it would definitely be warehousing.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation Department as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It will teach you some much needed job training and will help you further your career goals.

    Cons

    Since the job was not an hourly job, it was kind of hard getting as much work in as possible.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation Department full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed helping clients. It made coming to work worthwhile. I spent extra time, helping write resumes, etc.

    Cons

    To make more money...you are taken farther and farther away from helping clients directly. The job becomes less rewarding...just reviewing others work. The people who are promoted the farthest and fastest, know someone at state office. Many top staff have never done any case work in the field and were fast-tracked because of who they knew.

    Advice to Management

    My disability was turned against me and became a liability. They harassed me focussing on my disability. If you do not fit in with their little club in Columbia, they harass you. Your disability is easy to aim at!

    Pros

    Good on helping you develop skills.

    Cons

    The pay is not helpful if it to be depended on for survival. You might be lucky to get 30 dollars for one week of work. Work is full-time. Early morning and late getting home depending on we you live if you came to work on company vans.

    Advice to Management

    no comment except provide more financial assistance. You all failed in helping me and I am still unemployed and it is now 2013.

    Pros

    One of the major reasons I enjoy working with the State of SC as a Business Development Specialist is because what I do transforms lives of those who come to us seeking to prepare themselves for competitive employment. Did I mention our clients have documented disabilities? That is AWESOME!!

    Cons

    Meeting prospective business leaders who sometimes more interested in the bottom line dollar to realize they themselves are just a blink away from needing our services. Accident on the way home, terrible illness, stroke, heart attack......

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded~ visit your tax dollars SCVRD nearest you.

    Pros

    You will most definately get a pay check, and three breaks. Another bonus is that you only work until 3:30

    Cons

    The people are rude, The jobs their are often labor intensive, and they pay you way less than minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management, you need to raise the pay for each employee, because honestly you are profiting on a business that is a complete pyramid scam.
