    I have been working at AHRC New York City part-time

    Pros

    The experience of working with people in need of support emanate feelings of warmth and instills commitment from you. Overall, it's a rewarding experience.

    Cons

    The road towards professional growth can be quite slow and the pay is not at a competitive rate, which may explain the high turnover rate of employees.

    Advice to Management

    (To a few management staff)- Find multiple ways to show appreciation to your employees.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Hands off approach if you know how to do your job.

    Cons

    Pay rate is way below what it should be even for a non-profit. Many co-workers have second jobs. Impossible to live on the amount of money paid. That's why there is such a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    You'll never hire quality workers with your salaries. I've seen the better workers leave because of this.

    I worked at AHRC New York City full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits including PTO. You really get to build a relationship with the population that you serve. Certain Co-Workers become family.

    Cons

    Horrible pay, low wages, no advancement

    Advice to Management

    Management, Directors are nasty inconsiderate, racist and really don't care for good workers or the population. Many managers and directors need to be replaced. They are professional and have minimum people skills.

    I have been working at AHRC New York City full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Number of days you get for vacation, sick and personal are more than enough.

    Health insurance is good and cheap.

    Work is rewarding. You get to know and love the guys.

    Cons

    Pay is ridiculous. Not a living wage. What is required as a CSP is way too much for the pay given.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff. So many of us are burnt out and overworked. Increase pay or turnover rate will never decrease!

    I worked at AHRC New York City full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Snacks almost weekly. Healthcare of working for a non-profit. Managers being nice to you when they want to be.

    Cons

    Bipolar group home residence managers having the upper hand on you and your job, and them being the deciding factor on if you keep it. It doesn't matter how hard you work or how much effort you put into this job, you will not be returned the favor or any appreciation from the group home managers, who you talk to over the phone on a daily basis and constantly degrade you. You WILL have weekend hours eventually, and those weekend hours at times interfere with your family time. It all depends on how quickly and easily you're able to schedule shifts. The amount of scheduled shifts that you fill with direct support professionals, the better treatment you will normally have from management (from AHRC and the group homes that you provide for). They will come up with Pride Health being the alternative staffer for group homes, when really, the majority of group home residences rarely ever use any other temporary staffing organization like AHRC. Despite me being there for such a short period of time, this job will really hurt your resume in the long run if you're not sure it's what you want to do. If you're not sure about the job, seriously, don't take the job. Your hard work and diligence is better used elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting the group home managers take advantage of you so much and start listening to your employees. This is the reason why this type of position has such a high turn-over rate (whoever is reading this, you can ask about the turn-over rate at your interview, Kent and/or Rosa will have to be honest with you). Start being more organized with the amount of direct support professionals that want to work and less direct support professionals that just want this job as a back-up.
