    I have been working at Children’s Home Society of Florida full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with youth and families and providing services that can improve lifestyles. Very friendly and knowledgeable co-workers. Strong support from the community. Good benefits.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great; however, factoring in the area, it's competitive. I'm not sure if there's much room for advancement without transferring. I haven't heard a lot of great things about central and south Florida branches.

    Advice to Management

    Not really. Management in the Panhandle do a lot to show appreciation to their employees. They generally practice an open door policy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Children’s Home Society of Florida (Pensacola, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in mid-December and did not hear back until the first week of February. I was asked a couple questions over the phone about my experience (however, I was not warned before-hand that I would be engaging in a phone interview). I was then invited to do a face to face interview. The interview was with two Case Supervisors. Interview was about a half hour long, due in part to the questions I had prepared for them. I was told I would hear back within a week whether or not I had gotten the job.

    I did receive a call from Human Resources two days later. I was told that I could not be offered anything until I passed my background check. The HR person then sent me an email with a list of tasks I had to complete (mostly paperwork), including a finger print appointment and a letter that had to be notarized.

    After all the trouble I went through trying to get these documents back to the HR department, I was sent an email a week later with a general "we are pursuing other candidates" spiel. I was not told why, the email was one of those automated replies.

    I do not feel it was handled professionally on their end. I felt after all the paperwork they bestowed on me they should have at least given me a proper phone call, as I know for a fact that nothing in my background check could have deterred them from hiring me.
