I have been working at Spurwink Services full-time (More than 10 years)
Love making a difference! Love helping those that need us and appreciate us.
After over 10 yrs. We will be making .10 more than minimum wage. Big woop!
Advice to Management
Don't make people think you are doing them a favor. Min. wage is going up, so you have to jump us up by at least .10. Wow huge raise, not!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spurwink Services (Portland, ME) in June 2014.
First a skype interview if you live far away then an in person interview if possible. Honestly if you present as a semi responsible person you have a good chance of getting the job because the turnover rate for TFP's is horrible and the program bleeds money when these positions are open because they have to pay RYFS' tons of overtime and sleep hours to cover.
There was no negotiation phase.
