Assessment Coordinator
in Avenel, NJ

What don't you like about working at Youth Advocate Programs?

"When I worked at my office, it was not team oriented. The Director piled all the work on others, with out training or explaining certain things. Office staff would tried to come up with new ideas, plans, and ways to execute them, but the Director was not opened to suggestions. Employee's college education did not seem important to employment. It felt like the management with in the office felt intimidated by others within the office staff because of their educational background. If you take a good look at the employees who worked for the Director almost all of them quit. There has to be a reason that they quit. Did no one ever realize how many program coordinators or assessment coordinators or assistant directors left the organization There is something wrong with the picture if the Director went through many office employees, yet she's still thereAlso, there were possible grievances, however, Director over looked them, due to favoritism."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Hire and train staff to do specific job requirements for the position hired. Upper management needs to look closer to who is running the programs because there are many things that should not happen to employees or"

Director
in Canton, NY

"YAP, dont get comfortable."

What do you like about working at Youth Advocate Programs?

"Multiple out of town trainings in nice hotels was the only good thing about this organization."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Only apply with this organization if you have no alternatives, and if you do get employed, continue your search as they will exhaust you and your abilities and then find a way to make anything that ever went wrong your fault. This is not exactly what happened to me, but I had seen it done to countless others. Oh, I almost forgot, they also lie immensely, to employees, clients and funders."

What don't you like about working at Youth Advocate Programs?

"Everything. Mostly the problem is with upper management, who do not know what it is like to work with youth and families day in and out. They have unrealistic expectations of their families, and when anything goes on a program level, the state and/or county director will find a way to blame the next people below them and use their at will employment classification to their fullest extent."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Get your expectations in check, and understand that not every person is able to receive assistance or even wants it."
