Pros: caring employees and flexible hours
Cons: high expectations, limited pay, strict disciplinary system
Day to day work is spent with clients and families. Service hour expectation for the week is 26 hours of face to face time with clients. Service providers work to assist families and clients in identifying/utilizing social resources as well as rehabilitation skills.
I learned to manage a busy work flow schedule and evolve to a constantly changing work environment.
Hardest part of the job will be meeting constantly shifting expectations, deadlines, and requirements. The Otis R. Bowen Center has a very strict and unforgiving disciplinary system. Coupled with high expectations and low pay, it has a very high burn out/turn over rate.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing one of your clients succeed in treatment and graduate from services.
