Hillside Select Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Hillside Select Sucks. The Stags Leap District AVA is an American Viticultural Area located within the Napa Valley AVA 6 miles (9.7 km) north of the city of Napa, California. The Stags Leap District was the first appellation to be designated an AVA based on the unique terroir characteristics of its soil. The soil of this region include loam and clay sediments from the Napa River and volcanic soil deposits left over from erosion of the Vaca Mountains. Like many Napa Valley AVAs, Stags Leap District is particularly known for its Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1976 at the Judgment of Paris wine tasting, the 1973 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet from the area that would become this AVA won first place in the red wine category, beating out classified Bordeaux estates. Today, the Stags Leap District is home to twenty different wineries.
Christine R from Ridgewood, New Jersey wrote a review for TRIP ADVISOR sharing her experience visiting Stag's Leap Wine Cellars: "Had a fabulous trip to Napa area and had amazing wine tastings including barrel tasting. Stag’s Leap was the most disappointing vineyard. Expensive fee for just average wine with a big price. Shuffled through with no attention other than pouring the wine.. Have talked to others with the same experience. With so many great vineyards to pick from, this one is truly a miss."
Teacher of Mathematics (Former Employee) says"I was fired very unexpectedly, and without reasons given. I am an excellent, experienced educator who received positive feedback after observations. I was never given any warnings that I my contract might not be renewed, and was simply informed that I would not be invited back the next year. The contract stated that I could ask for union representation, but I was denied this right. The contract also stated that I would be given a reason should I ever be dismissed, but that was also denied. Cons: Poorly managed"
Employee (Current Employee) says"If I wrote my true feelings about the place no one would apply. Good place to get your feet wet. Long term ideas, not so much. Leadership has no stability. Building moral is very low. Feels like you have no support."
Teacher (Current Employee) says"Not welcoming, not supportive. The work you do is not appreciated. Expected to complete the work of others. Some teachers can’t or won’t try to relate to students they are expected to teach. Cons: Clicks and private chats"
Technology Technician (Current Employee) says"It's a decent job but the management is not good at all. School districts in general aren't a great place for advancement. I would not recommend working in a school district unless you have to."
Custodian (Former Employee) says"It was a great job but it was too deep into generations of family and nepitism throughout the company, plus hillside is somewhat still segregated so you do have some racism. But the parents and kids were great to work with. They still have a long way to go though. The principal I worked for has enough lawsuits concerning racism and discrimination with the union and personal with employees."
Class Three Armed Safety Officer (Current Employee) says"you have to work here first to see if you would like it there is some great people to work around and I world stay if I had the choice to do so. So you truly would have to work here."

Former Employee - Youth Advocate says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time for more than a year Cons: Supervisors are either power hungry or overbearing. The pay is ridiculously low for the amount of work required of you and things you’re asked to do. There is no overtime and very little room to be promoted. Upper management pretends to listen and tells the employees what they think they want to hear, but changes are never made. The company cares more about meeting quotas than helping students."
Former Employee - Clinician says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time for less than a year Cons: Management Overbearing Low pay Lack of opprotunties to grow No support"
Former Employee - Clinician says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Horrible management - management members do not have managerial experience or training"
Former Employee - Mental Health Clinician says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time for more than a year Cons: Unsupportive, disorganized management, low pay"
Former Employee - Staff Accountant says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time for more than a year Cons: no oversight on management with power"
Former Employee - Social Worker says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time for more than 10 years Cons: Literally everything else. Lazy workers and even lazier supervisors. Poor kids."
Former Employee - YCP3 says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time for less than a year Cons: The needs are never-ending, so there is plenty of opportunity to help. But that help will be exploited. It will even be twisted for workers who are young and pretty. The residents will talk smack to posture themselves to their peer, and then there will be unwarranted investigations. The management is awful. They have trainings, but they have exceptionally low leadership skills. Those poor leadership skills create a hostile work environment where people tattle on one another rather than.. oh... say... identifying what each person does well. The want to use ABA principles for the residents, but they only rip the staff apart. They could do better. They should do better. They get way too much money to run a poor operation."
says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies Cons: Administration only cares about saving money and no actual education goes on whatsoever. They don't do what it takes when it comes to salary or work environment to incentivize teachers to work there, so sometimes they have no teacher for a core subject and have teaching assistants handing out worksheets during the time that the class would be held if there was a teacher employed."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time for more than a year Cons: Low pay and management does not care about employees. Lots of issues with inadequate technology provided to employees as well."
Current Employee - Human Resource Manager says"I have been working at Hillside Family of Agencies full-time Cons: Once the former Executive Leader left it has been down hill ever sense. The Chief Operating Officer is no where to be found (working on health homes initiative). He does not support his staff like a true COO. They decided to "demote" the current executive director and make three more executive directors in regions. Wow - talk about too much Admin. They have a CEO, COO, CFO, then they have four executive directors and then regional leader, asst regional leaders, program managers, asst program managers, clinical managers, supervisors, etc... (That is why there is nothing left over for direct care, let alone for us in HR). A few years ago they were talking about growing to 350 million, the year before that they wanted to be ranked one of the top 100 business by US news. They have failed all the way around. The "ivory-tower" on the Monroe campus makes so much money it is sick (check the 990 that all non-profits have to file, the CEO makes over 400k alone) Upper management is older and seem to be just mailing it in. I don't see an overall vision. YCP's suffer working direct care so the ivory tower can continue putting money in the bank. This doesn't even touch on how dumb the program managers are when it comes to HR policies or knowing how to make business decisions... so sad, so sad. Morale is so low, as no one has confidence in the leaders. Town hall meetings are just lies..."
