Kainos has an amazing CEO, Andy Frisch. The company shows that they truly care for their employees.
Regarding the employment services department, I feel like everyone is still trying to develop a system that works for them.

I started at kainos when I was very young I believe 20 in their vocational program as a floor supervisor this was my second job working with the developmentally disabled from first off all direct service staff in my program friendly and encouraging we all worked as a team with all our hard work and ideas we made the program work for the clients we serve I made some lifelong friends both staff and client during the ten years I worked at kainos I was production supervisor site supervisor at a few work sites in the community did deliveries operated the forklift and maintained the packaging equipment on the production floor at the work center and on weekends I would fill in at there residential programs The executive and Administration staff we're always supportive we are all working towards the same goal The administration encourage you to take any training you can lots of times they will have in services regarding how to deal with the segment of the population we're teaching My brother worked there part-time I believe in their landscape Department as an instructor and my sister still works there I believe it's her 20th year she works with residence in the community I have definitely recommended kainos to my friends and family as a great place to work
Like with a lot of other nonprofits the direct service staff does not make a lot of money kainos does try to compensate their staff fairly and I believe pays their Direct service staff slightly above other agencies working with the same population in the areaContinue reading

The clients are fun, sometimes challenging but mostly in a way that will help you with your personal growth. The staff is for the most part very hardworking and dedicated. The supervisors I personally worked with were great at training and encouragement. They are likely to be the most supportive company I will ever have had he good fortune of working for.
The clients can also be frustrating at times but nothing out of the ordinary. Supervisors are not always on site and have to rely on staff representations of other staff members. The information is not always accurate and can sometimes be damaging. Loving people can sometimes be meddlesome. The pay is good for the field but still low for the Bay Area. Not a lot of upward mobility.Continue reading

Total respect for this non-profit organization. Kainos provides unique structure, training, and support for developmentally disabled adults. I had never worked in an office environment before, and the training I received there has served me well ever since.
I have nothing negative to relate.

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?

Agree? Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced Friday that parents will be given the choice of whether their children follow mask rules in school this fall, challenging federal guidance and local school districts in what critics called an “irresponsible” and “appalling” decision amid a surge of infections.

What if you are mandated for a Vaccine? We know there are different ways to look at this; moralistic, political, personal and professional. Never the less, I'm pretty sure of the dilemma each of us will face in the near future! I'm interested hearing what your thoughts if confronted?
