People Inc. is Hiring!
Additional staff are needed for Direct Care and Behavior Technicians! WKBW-TV Channel 7 helped to get the word out! To get a first-hand look, Reporter Hilary Lane visited one of People Inc.’s residences on Main Street in Snyder. She spoke to staff and the ladies that live there to find out what is needed – patience, a desire to help others and compassion are just a few of the qualities a candidate should definitely have!
