Mission: At Ability Beyond, we discover, build and celebrate the ability in all people.
I have been working at Ability Beyond part-time (More than 3 years)
Working with those that have a disability and helping them achieve their goals is very satisfying. It provides those that do not have any medical background an opportunity to explore the medical field.
The work schedule provided doesn't allow me to work the desired hrs. It is either too much or too little and the schedule is not a typical work schedule. For ex. You may have to work every Saturday or Sunday instead of every other.
Advice to Management
It will help to have an assistant manager work the overnight shifts too.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ability Beyond (Bethel, CT) in September 2014.
I was interviewed first by an HR Generalist- very generic questions. Then he brought in two managers from different teams to interview me at the same time. They asked a couple more generic questions. I was offered the job two days later.
They seem more like they're looking for personality above anything else. No prior experience is really necessary but I had worked with adults with mental illnesses before and I'm sure that helped.
