Fun place to work!!!
Youth Development Specialist (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 22, 2015
Fun place to work with a lot of diversity!! The pay is minimal like most social service jobs. And the case notes are a pain but a must do if the agency is to continue servicing clients as Medicaid notes are a cash cow for this agency. However, I learned a lot from my experience and my coworkers!

happier place before reform
Administrative Analyst I/Acting Management Analyst (Former Employee), Chicago ILMarch 24, 2015
The employees need to have more support from management. Employees are being hurt by residents and administration is blaming and are ignoring the employees' numerous request for help....

Also employees are being fired just on allegations of other employees or management staff without any factual evidence ....

Opportunity to learn and advance
Professional Development Specialist (Current Employee), TrainingNovember 8, 2014
I have the pleasure of holding various positions at Cook County. Met wonderful people who gave me support and an opportunity to grow. Hardest part about the job is not taking it personal. Seeing youth and wanting to help them find better opportunities in life makes me get up everyday and continue with my path.

The juvenile justice system is growing and constantly changing. JTDC is the flagship of that change in the United States. Good salary and great benefits.

It is a thankless job. It is however, a decent opportunity to segway into state or a federal position.

Pros: payed rollcall

Worst place I have ever worked. Poorly managed facility, when compared to state facilities. Very low moral. They made you pay for parking in their parking garage.

Supervise residents with daily living; and disciplined leader with the proven ability to remain calm and deliver results in high-pressure situations
Youth Development Specialist (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 18, 2012
Pros: benefits
Cons: a lot of direspect
A typical day at the Juvenile Detention Center, is breaking up a fight between two residents. I have to keep account of all residents at all time, we are under a program called CBT that stands for Cognitive Behavior Training. It allegedly teaches the residents how to think before they react to a situation. In working for this facility I have learned you have to have patience in that type of facility. Management does not stick together very well. My Co-workers tries to do the best they can. The hardest part of my job, is accepting the mental abuse the residents displays to us.The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that at least one of the resident was listening to all the encouraging words that we give.
