    I worked at Volunteers of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is rewarding to be able to assist clients with their lively hood and give them a sense of purpose for being alive.

    Cons

    This company doesn't pay well at all unless it has changed since I was employed there. They need to do better about paying their employees for working as hard as they do for the clients they serve this kind of work deserves to be better compensated for the kind of work that is being done.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to better train the staff that has to work with clients because there is a lot involved with working with total care clients or the ones that are mobile, it is rewarding work but needs to be taking more seriously.
