Adverse job culture; agency is best on a per diem basis
Crisis Response (Former Employee) –  Fair Lawn, NJMay 18, 2015
Demanding fast-paced job with high case load, strict deadlines/mammoth paperwork volume, unfeasible expectations, frequent on-call rotation, inconsistent policies, procedures, management, and supervision. Bilingual workers are not compensated for language skills and retain the highest caseloads. Overall, the politically laden job culture exhibits irregular patterns of accepted behavior, and the beliefs and values that promote and reinforce them are unethical and conflict-ridden.
Pros
Working in the community with families/youth, clinical hours
Cons
No room for self/team advocacy, impractical high demands, no team cultivation, frequent tampering of compensation and overtime, abstracted Union representation

Enjoyed working at CarePlus
TIP Program Assistant Program Manager/ FAW (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJMay 3, 2013
A typical day at work was assessing a new parent for enrollment in the program. Then back to the office after assessments were completed. Possible luch with some co-workers or the boss. Then back out to the field. End of day was reporting back to the office for paper work to be completed. The hardest part of the job was driving to a clients home and finding no one there. The most enjoyable part was having a client that was happy to be enrolled in the program.

great feild experience working in fast pace psych emergency situations.
Crisis Intervention Specialist (Former Employee) –  Paramus, NJFebruary 28, 2013
Began in ER or mobile crisis unit (on the road within county to assess clts for dangerousness), Answering suicide emergency hotline calls and responding appropriately to needs of clts. Providing short-term, emergency therapy and referring to long term tx. Formulating confidential psychosocial evaluations. I learned to work under heavy pressure, triage situations in the ER and within the community with police officers; how to effectively treat and diagnose clts using DSM-IV and under supervision of on-site psychiatrist; how to work well as a member of the tx team. Hardest part of job, reaching mutual conclusions with members of team with opposing dx and tx recommendations than the others. Most enjoyable, being abe and available to offer qyuality, professional, emergency care to those in need.
Pros
flexible hours; the knowledge and experience i gained under the stress of emergency situations.
Cons
no full time positions availabe.; low salary

Program Assistant (Current Employee) –  NJJuly 5, 2012
I love working at Care Plus however, if you're a Per Diem - you do not receive any benefits. You're schedule changes every week and if the visitation is canceled - you do not get paid for that day.
