Youth Worker (Former Employee), Laramie, WY – January 18, 2014
Pros: kids, outings, experience
Cons: management, violence, stress
great benefits and ok pay, typical day consists or retraining teens for attacking staff or other residence. House managers playing favorites and allotting Christmas bonuses to their friends and leaving nothing for the rest.
The company also freaks out every year that they are in a financial crisis and have to close, make decisions that impact everyone – more... negatively, for it all to blow over the following month and making more changes, just for it to happen the following year.
so if you can deal with mean kids, and wait for the few small successes while staying calm and not letting management get to you, this is the job for you. – less
Youth Worker (Former Employee), Laramie, WY – October 8, 2013
Pros: helping the youth
There were no typical days at CHC. Daily activates ranged from watching all children to cooking for the kids. I learned cognitive behavior therapy and how to handle abused, neglected children with a wide array of mental problems. My co-workers were the best ever. the hardest part of the job was seeing the kids lose themselves but the best part was seeing – more... children come so far and change for the better. – less
