    I worked at Stepping Stones Center part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working with this company as they seemed to have a great group of clients and supportive supervisors.

    Cons

    They sadly went out of business and all clients were transferred to another agency.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, great experience, great start up for Psychology majors, company is located in a great location for people who live around the area. Has plenty of parking.

    Cons

    Stepping Stones require you to commit 1 year or they will force you to pay for the training which is $2.500. The 2.5k is prorated for 9 dollars for each day you worked, if you leave in 3 months, be prepared to pay the outstanding remaining balance. They con you by saying that "training is paid", for their part they still enforce that it is paid, and "technically" it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee's attitude should improve a bit, and be up front with company policies such as the training program offered to new hires on initial interview. They are dodgy and it causes applicants to be turned off by the offer. Pay is underwhelming compared to other companies.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you going to school part time. 33 hour work week is same as full time with benefits.

    Cons

    Supervisor was difficult to work with. She was bi-polar and would disappear for days at a time without calling in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    very limited

    I worked at Stepping Stones Center

    Pros

    Kids that you work with are super cute
    Staff meetings are catered
    Coworkers are nice for most part
    Gas money added to each pay check for full time workers
    Paid holidays and vacation
    Can take time off as long as you make up hours missed

    Cons

    Parents of kids are difficult at times
    So much driving back and forth between clients home, and many times schedule coordinators don't care if you are driving over 50+ miles a day
    Although company is small, you don't always know everyday since you only see everyone once a month
    Some supervisors are difficult to work with
    Work can be physically and emotionally exhaustive
