    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at SCO Family of Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you like helping others then this job provides such that.

    Cons

    The paid is horrible...not for management and upper management. There is no loyalty and the good worker's are railroaded, especially if one refuses to play the game.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all leveled workers with respect as you want the workers to respect the clients that are being served. Everyone does not speak Spanish and everyone should be treated fairly regardless of language. Someone really needs to investigate this company - Labor Board DHS or some person above this company (management).
