I have been working at Hillside Family of Agencies part-time (More than a year)
You get to work with some great kids!
You get to take these kids on outings, teach them life skills, and generally help them to succeed in life.
There is some poor management at the site that I work on. If something goes wrong on the unit, the staff is automatically blamed for it.
Advice to Management
If I were to give some advice to the management team, I would recommend that they stop blaming staff for all of the problems.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hillside Family of Agencies (Rochester, NY).
Initially contacted for interview two weeks after applying.
Brought in for one short interview after a brief introductory telephone conversation.
Interview lasted about 25 minutes, was one-on-one with Facilities Manager, and was fairly casual/laid back.
I was notified within three business days that I was being offered the position and could start the following week for training and orientation.
Very simple verbal negotiation took place during one conversation and I was offered a salary that was slightly less than what I requested but significantly higher than their initial offer. I was pleasantly pleased with the agreement.
