I worked at Metropolitan Family Services full-time (More than 3 years)
The benefits are pretty good and the pay is competitive. They try to do a lot for employee appreciation, like holiday parties and fun activities at staff meetings.
Even though the benefits are pretty good, HR is fairly difficult to deal with. There has also been a lot of turnover in the last couple of years.
Advice to Management
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Metropolitan Family Services (South Chicago, IL) in November 2014.
An appointment is made. You meet with two or three staff personnel. Answer questions presented. You should be where you are interviewing ten minutes ahead of time and be relaxed. The process is in a office or room that is private, two or more individuals, staff personnel or a parent may interview at the same time, it depends on who and when the staff is available.
They do not negotiate salaries.
