Employees rate Sanford 24.6% higher than the overall average
I worked at Children’s Home Society of Florida full-time (More than 3 years)
This company was good to work for, they do want to make sure their employees take care of themselves and their mental health. The pay isn’t bad but should be higher for the job, but is better than other similar agencies.
Work overload! Lots of cases and not enough time. Many expectations that just cannot be met. Really not good for people with children.
Advice to Management
Hire enough workers so that turnover isn’t a constant issue. Look at chick fil a, they have so many workers on shift every shift that there is never a long wait or drop in service...same mentality goes to this much more important job!

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Children’s Home Society of Florida (Sanford, FL) in March 2019.
It was a sit-down interview with a Dependency Case Manager Supervisor and the Program Director for the entire service center.
They will very quickly begin the interview without much pleasantry in order to shake you up. I was immediately asked what kind of experience I had in Dependency or what other job experience I had that was relevant if it was not directly connected to Dependency.
After going over my relevant job experience, they screened me with a behavioral competency test in which they asked me 3 separate scenario based questions, all of which were constructed on the basis of, “tell me about a time in your life when...” and they complete it with some scenario such as “tell me about a time when you experience conflict in the workplace.” After giving them the initial details they ask follow up questions based on that initial answer. The follow up questions are standardized to the test and not specifically related to your answer.
After those 3 questions, I was told how the salary and structured raises would occur, and also told when my start date would be. They then told me what my next steps would be to begin the background process, etc. I was basically hired right then without being told as much, given that the background stuff was guaranteed to come back clean.
