    I worked at Catholic Charities USA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good, Flexible for full time student work balance

    Cons

    Not too many Cons at the time it can be a little flexible as younger staff in the early 20s working with older women who are in the 60s, at it feels as though they try to make you feel inferior. But once they get, use to you they are nice and understanding.
    But each house has different, experiences.

    Keep putting the attention, on the individuals, they are the reasons we are here in the first place.

    I worked at Catholic Charities USA part-time

    Pros

    Easy interview process
    Great benefits package for full-time employees

    Cons

    They hired me for a position I didn't even apply for. After orientation, which I was initially told that was all I'd be doing for the day, I was handed a bucket of cleaning supplies and a list of clients to service. So in my dress clothes I had to help another employee clean two client's homes.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and more straight forward communication. Don't just pluck people to fill in vacancies because of your deadlines.
