    I have been working at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the work we do. I have a great team, supervisor, and director. I go home at night and rest well knowing that I have made a positive contribution to my community. For some people this job is just a paycheck but many people here actually care about our clients and the work that we do. The benefits and health insurance are good. It's a great place to start a career in social services/ aging and a great place to grow if that's what you decide to do.

    Cons

    I wish people would be compensated based on their skills and qualifications. You get a raise over the years as you stay with the company, but I also feel that people should be compensated based on higher degrees or certain skills (I.e. Being bilingual--a skill that's highly sought in the company). This would reduce turnover.

    Care Manager I Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (Phila, PA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview is fairly easy I spoke about my experience with the Medicare and Medicaid population and answered what I have done in high pressure situations. Managers vary. My manager was simply terrible and did nothing to motivate her team. She sat in her office all day eating and when I would ask a question since I was new to this field she always acted as if I was imposing. In my professional career, I have always been encouraged to ask questions.

    Interview Questions

    • This was probably the worst companies I worked for, the two and a half months I was there my manager continued to tell me that I was not meant for this position and I need to resign. I loved my clients. However, this was probably the worse jobs I ever had. The pay is low not very competitive in the field and when I approached human resources about my concerns about my manager it was pushed under the rug. Eventually, I couldn't take being criticized every day and left.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They are horrible they won't negotiate it is either take what's offered or hit the road. I think I never made such terrible money. I took a 20k pay cut due to my job moving to another state. I was glad when I was finally able to leave.
