    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at C.E.F.S. Economic Opportunity part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This program is awesome because it will place you at a work site for one year to help you get experience.

    Cons

    I can only work 29 hours per week and it is minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    The people here are wonderful! It all depends on your work site, however.

    Pros

    Get to help disadvantaged, disabled, and elderly people.

    Cons

    Must do job of 2+ people for mostly minimum wage with Bachelor's degree. Director out of touch with day-to-day responsibilities of staff. Unreasonable expectations. No advancement opportunities. Poor health care. No 401k.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what your staff actually does. Increase salaries.

    Pros

    Good hours decent pay, good benefits

    Cons

    Terrible managers in the public bus department oh my gosh my manager took some much overtime and scheduled it around her daughter's cleaning job schedule - really stressful bad place to work my manager was the most hateful person who would go behind your back to get you in trouble. The managers above her were terrible 3 all had the same name.

    Advice to Management

    Get new managers in the Central Public Transit department -they are a joke
