Meeting great families and students
The Region Director who hired me worked at another agency and was not familiar with PAX standard, so when I told her what was happening all she kept saying was" we did not do it that way". She initially promised families I could call and see if they wanted to host. Basically, I moved to another state to do the job she told me would pay a decent wage and sent documentation supporting that. She was completely unable to support me or help with questions. Furthermore she screwed up a placement by talking a family into being a welcome family but not explaining to them the 8 week responsibility. The family backed down and the problem started. PAX demands a lot of work yes, but they also want you to use your own business equipment/car etc. They will have you running in circles with inconsistencies. Her phone was always full so you could not leave a message. If you love volunteer work and cleaning up other people's messes and chaos this is for you, the people you meet are interesting, however, PAX will talk out of both sides of their mouth to you and use you. I know! I am contacting the BBB with a complaint.
Advice to Management
Do not be so self involved & think you are helping others when you are just working out of your EGOs and pay a salary rate with incentives, instead of screwing people over repeatedly.
