I worked at The Consortium full-time (More than a year)
The Consortium is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to serve the disenfranchised community struggling with addictions and negative cognitive behaviors.
The lack of consistent cohesiveness among staff and genuine concern for the clients creates a greater negative environment than it has to be.
Advice to Management
While many of the therapist are good, listen to the concerns of the clients, it is more than likely that they are reporting something that holds weighted truth regarding their experience at the place they call help, the Consortium.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Consortium (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2011.
After meeting with introductory staff to peruse resume and discuss the job opportunity as well as requirements, if you appear to be a positive match for the company's needs you are informed that the Human Resources department will contact you for an official interview. Once contacted by Personnel you are given a formal interview from an objective perspective of career development with the company. The comments of the introductory staff member are revealed in the formal interview and if all parties mutually agree that the particular job opportunity is a good fit then an offer of employment is extended.
