    I worked at Interfaith of The Woodlands

    Pros

    Helping people in the community

    Cons

    Management, low morale, high turnover

    Advice to Management

    When you lose 99% of your staff there could be something bigger going on. Wish someone who cared would take notice. No one to confidentially report anything to without repercussions. Not worth it.

    I have been working at Interfaith of The Woodlands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If enjoying severing others will enjoy your job.

    Cons

    The environment is stressful the pay sucks, and senior management (The Directors) are jerks. They practice nepotism and racism, I pray that HGAC take the contact form them. Baker Ripley and ResCare are better contractors. A lot of the staff feel the same way, but they scared to say something,

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your directors immediately!!!

  6. "Does HR Exist?"

    I have been working at Interfaith of The Woodlands

    Pros

    The organization appears to help others.

    Cons

    If you apply for a position, you’ll never know the status. It only takes a few seconds or few minutes to send an acceptance or a rejection. If applicants took time out of their day to apply, the least someone could do is have the courtesy to respond. It seems so contradictory to the mission of the organization. I hope the HR team is not a reflection of the overall culture of the establishment.

    Advice to Management

    Please have your HR Team to create a template to respond to applicants. It would provide a better first impression. After all, applicants could be potential clients, give referrals, and give word-of-mouth experiences too. I hope this is just a small oversight.
