    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Community Integrated Work Program full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the other employees were great to work with and everyone really helped one another out. The hours were really great. 7:30am-3:30pm, Monday through Friday. The benefits were good too. Paid time off and sick leave. Paid holidays.
     There were two medical options. I picked the one that was totally free. There was also dental and optical benefits. There was a 401K with matching (but only up to 4%) .

    The overall work was fairly easy. Even though there were clients with behaviors, none of them were too difficult.

    There were substitutes available if I needed time off. There were only a couple of times when I wasn't able to get my requested time off, but usually because someone else had already asked for it. If I had a last minute emergency, the management did their best to accommodate me.

    It was a good place to work with clients, get practical experience, and gain new skills before going back to school and finishing my degree.

    Cons

    The pay was very low. Starting pay was close to minimum wage. There seemed to be new policies all the time (but management at least explained why they were necessary).

    Other than moving to from an aide to a Job Coach, there are not to many opportunities for promotions. There are a few specialized positions, but these spots don't open very often.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should do a better job recognizing good performance. We had performance reviews, but some extra recognition for successes would go a long way. Since the pay is so low (I understand that it's set by the government), you should provide more perks and rewards. They don't necessarily need to be monetary.

    Job Coach Aide Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Campbell, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Community Integrated Work Program (Campbell, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by the program director in which he only asked about three questions. It seemed that he was ready to give me the job and even explained that he rather over hire than under hire because the turn over is unpredictable. Through out most of the interview he was explaining and describing the nature of the job but still managed to be vague.
