Great place for the field experience
Multiple Positions (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – May 30, 2017
AYN is an awesome place to gain the knowledge and experience in the mental health field. You'll fall in love with the kids being served.
However, there are some management staff that are awesome, and some that are extremely shady (lies, demonstrates favoritism, unethical, etc). The morale is easily lowered and the politics of the business are, in a very messy way, known around campus.
Work-life balance in foster care is null and void; it's all work, no life.
Build amazing relationships with the children and some staff, flexibility in hours depending on the position, stability if they like you
Low pay, it's all about numbers and census, high turn-over
