Comments from Staff Members "I really appreciate the flexibility of my job, both with regard to my work schedule and my preferences for job duties/areas of focus (which have changed through the years). It is very evident that Kindering management respects and values its employees." "I am impressed by how innovative Kindering is, and that money and time are devoted to trying new ways of delivering services, or learning new techniques, etc. Also, the passion and dedication (and friendliness) of the staff members makes working here satisfying and enjoyable." "Working at Kindering is better than I expected it could be. I feel so lucky that my first job is better than I could have possibly imagined!" “I found my passion again and can truly say that I love what I do. I feel valued and supported by management and co-workers, not just as an employee at Kindering but as a person, first and foremost.” “When I took a job as a Speech Therapist at Kindering, I never imagined that in less than a year I would say ‘I absolutely love my job at Kindering’… I was getting burnt out at my previous job, slowly losing my passion as a therapist… It didn’t take long after beginning my career at Kindering to realize that I am working for an amazing company.”
