"It feels like you walk into a family when you are a part of the CRI team!"

Great place to work. The Somerset Office is one of a kind. From the office staff, the PCAs, to the consumers you instantly feel the “happy” vibe. We all work together to make it be an enjoyable work place. The consumers call in constantly thanking everyone for everything they do. The PCAs all seem to enjoy what they do for a living and it shows. The office staff is supported by the main office in Erie that is very understanding and grateful. It feels like you walk into a family when you are part of the CRI team.

"They treated me with kindness"

I loved working for CRI in Lewisburg. It is the best job I’ve ever had. They treated me with kindness and compassion from the moment I started working there. The job makes you feel like you have a purpose and are doing good work. The staff appreciates and recognizes the work you put in and that is hard to find in most employers. CRI does whatever they can do accommodate their clients and employees. I would highly recommend them for employment or as a resource for someone needing their services.
