I work in an “at-will” state… I’ve been at my job for 7.5 years.. obviously I was hired on at a lower rate than the new hire. I recently found out they are hiring people we will be doing on the job training for (absolutely no experience in patient care- previously in customer service) at $.90 less an hr than I am making. When I asked for a raise they gave me $1. Does this seem fair?! Ps… our employee manual states “wages are a private matter. Discussing wages is a fireable offense.”

I already put in my 2 weeks notice to my work place, my supervisor was mad at me because since I just received retention bonus that will expire for a year, she’s saying I can’t leave. She has explained to me that if I leave, I might have to pay back the retention bonus. Do you think they will reject my 2 weeks notice or I just can pay them back? I need to get out from this toxic work environment. I did not tell them that I already accept another job which is better pay.

The staff at all levels of the organization truly care for one another and for our clients. We work with really passionate, driven individuals. We have a really forward-thinking and innovative leadership team. The benefits are some of the best I've seen offered anywhere, but especially for a non-profit. Everyone can see their impact on the mission statement in the work that they do and we set and achieve lofty business goals that deeply influence our community.
Sometimes implementation or roll out of new things can feel clunky and disorganized.

Ethical, caring leaders who listen to your concerns and provide mentorship. Good compensation and benefits. Including the 36 hour workweek. Heavy emphasis on training and professional development. Growing with an organization that is highly progressive/dynamic. Collegial, humanizing vibe between coworkers. It often makes working with an intense, complex population into an inspirational experience.
The population served is intensely symptomatic in a lot of cases. So it’s not light and easy. The collegiality between staff members can definitely make that better, but this is not cushy work. Also with the expectation of high quality work, and the need to navigate a fair amount of red tape from funding and third-party payer organizations, it takes a lot of diligence, and a fair amount of critical thinking. i’ve worked here several years in various roles. The programs are constantly evolving, and while that generally is exciting and useful, it can be a downside as well, because of the complexity, and all the bugs that have to be worked out with new programs. When you move up to a new position, you’re off and hitting something up that has not been done before. Being able to tolerate ambiguity during these times of change is a must for those who are going to have longevity and upward progression. You will face change, progress and ambiguity, and your leaders will expect you to speak up about changes that may be needed.Continue reading

I love working for this company and being part of an organization that does its absolute best to live up to its mission. Employees are treated with respect and are given every opportunity to grow. Benefits are excellent... plus you get 18 days of PTO out of the gate, as well as 15 paid holidays. A true family atmosphere that encourages honesty and hard work.
None I am aware of!
Thanks for the review! Glad you are loving First Step house!
