    I have been working at Experience Works full-time

    Pros

    A life learning night mare.

    Cons

    Many times you are placed in a receptionist or janitorial position with no means of advancement. Very humiliating for those truly wanting to get back into the workforce and have worked at higher levels with degrees. In addition, you are paid minimum wage

    I have been working at Experience Works part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can if you are savvy convince your overworked supervisor at Experience Works to approach an other nonprofit not on its list of which you know your skills will be recognized and learn additional skills. Sometimes you can get hired at the place you have sought as a host agency (place of work).

    Cons

    Many times you are placed in a receptionist or janitorial position with no means of advancement. Very humiliating for those truly wanting to get back into the workforce and have worked at higher levels with degrees. In addition, you are paid minimum wage - which is fair if you were given opportunities at host agencies to further your skillsets but this doesn't happen very often. Look for a 20 hour work week at best.

    I worked at Experience Works

    Pros

    I was able to work with many different Host Agencies. I enjoyed Mustard Seed Wellness Clinic, Interfaith Volunteers, and Linc. I was able to broaden my skills, communication, and office abilities in different settings. I love working with people whether in person or on phone.

    Cons

    Experience Works Program is to help older adults find work but many times the people do not find suitable jobs. The program lasts 4 years and we search for work while on the program but it doesn't guarantee job. I am still searching (I never give up).
