“My favorite thing [about] working for Southwest Key is helping the youth and having awesome co-workers.”

A non-profit job can be one of the most rewarding career paths an individual can take. We sat down with staff members from the Southwest Key Unaccompanied Minors programs in California and Arizona to listen to their stories of working in the Casas.

Andres is a Youth Care Worker at Casa San Diego. Watch as he shares about the strong teamwork between the Southwest Key staff and how it truly takes a village to keep our work going. We are thankful for Andres and the work he puts in each day for our Unaccompanied Minors program.

Interested in joining Andres in the work he’s doing? Find the perfect role for you!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I APPLY?

Just head to our job search page and click filter positions for your area to see our openings. You must be at least 21 years old to apply. Other requirements will be different for each opening, so we encourage you to apply for positions that feel like a good fit.

DO I NEED TO BE BILINGUAL?

While many of our direct care positions require being bilingual in English and Spanish, there are plenty of other openings without this requirement. We’ll also consider job experience from other countries. However, education experience must be validated in the United States.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE HIRING PROCESS?

The process will vary depending on each candidate and the role they’re applying for. A recruitment specialist will review your resume and application.  If you meet the requirements, they will reach out to you for next steps in the interview process. One part of the hiring process, the background check, may take longer for a person that has lived out of state than for a person who has always lived in the same state. This part of the hiring process is required to start employment with Southwest Key.

WHAT SHIFTS ARE AVAILABLE?

For hourly employees, we have three common shifts:

  • 6:00 AM to 2:00 PM
  • 2:00 PM to 10:00 PM
  • 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM

However, some programs may have needs that require different timing for shifts. We also offer incentives to hourly employees who work shifts starting at 2:00 PM or 10:00 PM. Some SWK positions include scheduled work on weekends. If your schedule with SWK includes weekends, that work will be considered mandatory.

ARE THERE SIGNING BONUSES?

We offer signing bonuses (or sign-on bonuses) for certain positions and regions, yes! Check out our job listings to see if there are any bonuses for openings in your area.

DO YOU PROVIDE TRAINING?

Southwest Key provides extensive training during new employee orientations and on-the-job training for new hires. You’ll learn all about proper procedures and employee benefits during these trainings.

WHAT COVID-19 PREVENTION MEASURES ARE YOU TAKING?

We’re following strict screening, isolation, and quarantine protocols provided by the Office of Refugee Resettlement and CDC. All staff are following social distancing guidelines and taking aggressive precautions to minimize contact. Many of our employees are currently working remotely in positions that don’t require physical contact.

WHEN DO EMPLOYEES GET PAID?

Southwest Key employees are paid twice a month, on the 1st and 15th of each month. Pay periods close on the 8th of the month for payments sent on the 15th and the 23rd of the month for payments sent on the 1st of the following month.

CAN I APPLY FOR MULTIPLE POSTINGS?

If you see more than one opening that you want to apply to, you’ll need to submit a separate application for each opening. However, if you fill out your basic information in Your Profile section of the dashboard, it will be automatically included in each application, saving you time and energy.

DO I NEED A RESUMÉ?

All applications should have a current, up-to-date resume with your most recent work experience and education. You can use the same resume for multiple applications, but the experience listed on your resume should always be relevant to the positions you’re applying for.
