What STEPS Employees Say

Get Your Foot In The Door

Even if it's not my forever-job, it's getting my foot in the door at an institution with unmatched benefits and such a positive work environment.

Work On An As-Needed Basis

Because I'm reliable and available the director of the clinic appreciates that she can always call me in. Likewise, I appreciate being able to let her know in advance I'll be away at my cottage.

Engage in Meaningful Work

For the first time in my life, I feel like I spend every day with people who are all working together for a common goal.

Be a Part of UK Community

Everyone knows the benefits are really good here, but the thing I like most is all the people I have met. Every day, I feel like I am on a really big team. I love being here.
