Line Cook (Former Employee) – South Salt Lake, UT – July 17, 2015
Productive at work fun place to work ping pong tables management was good to work with. Co workers where good to get a long with. Hardest part of the job was it was hot in the kitchen. Enjoyable part of the job was being a father figure to the kids.
Daycare Teacher (Former Employee) – West Valley, UT – August 5, 2015
While I was there I was the daycare teacher for the toddlers or the 1-2 year old children. I provided a safe environment along with following a set schedule. Provided a healthy balanced meal at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I was always able to talk to my supervisor if I needed andthing.
Mental Health Worker (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 5, 2014
Check in with the unit employees from the earlier shift to see how the residents were, who is doing well and who has been behavioral. Run group topic with the residence for the 2nd part of the day and what their goals are for a good shift and then spend all day keeping them safe from other residence and at times, themselves. I learned that I enjoy working one-on-one with the residence and that I want to go back to school to get my Graduate degree so I can be their therapist. Management doesn't help address unit concerns or help you if you need time off nor do the co-workers. The hardest part is that the agency can cut your hours and pay whenever they need to without notification. I enjoyed working with the residence and seeing them become better people.
Family orientation is great and getting to work with good kids and staff.
MHW/Recreation Therapy Aide (Former Employee) – South Salt Lake, UT – June 10, 2015
The company is closing it's doors if that says anything...This is not a good place to work for making a living. It is too stressful and employees are not compensated enough to deal with and put up with what they do.
Staff, Family orientation, good people.
Facility, high school mentality, drama, inconsistency.
The kids are amazing, plentiful hours and they fly by
Mental Health Worker (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 2, 2013
If you enjoy working with teenagers and don't mind getting attacked every once in a while (spit on, licked, etc.) this is a great place. Typically you go in and work alone directly with a specific group of kids and you communicate with others on your team through radios. Don't expect a lot of feedback from management or co-workers. After your initial training, the atmosphere is one of "feeling things out", trying different things on your own to see what works and what doesn't. The best part of the job is getting to know the kids, learning from them and seeing them do well, one day at a time. Staff members and medical team are easy-going and mostly supportive, management is largely absent.
satisfying work, meals are provided, flexible scheduling
few breaks, stressful at times, facility (space) is very limited
Very dangerous work environment with no structure.
Youth staff (Former Employee) – South Salt Lake – December 4, 2014
The program is not being implemented by the staff. The staff are not trained by the supervisor while doing shadow shifts. People are being injured in horrible ways. The staff are not focused on the youth and are violating policies. Its a very dangerous environment with no structure to follow. You will be injured and have to go to the emergency room. This program is not well executed and the staff are in danger every day. Please don't apply here they are always under staffed and will leave an entire unit for one person to run.
tuition reimbursement after 2 years, on site day care that comes out of your check.
you will restrain youth almost every day, other staff will violate policy, you will go to the emergency room.
HR Assistant / Receptionist (Current Employee) – South Salt Lake City, UT – May 16, 2012
This company gave me the opportunity to mold my position to be a closer fit with my abilities. The company was able to give me additional responsibilities, enabling me to grow through my years there.
Many of the employees are upbeat and fun to be around. Management seems to be another story. Increasing demands make it so being able to complete the tasks at hand seem near impossible. Some management members seem to be in a "High School" phase where gossip and backstabbing is a huge problem.
can not give because I still work there (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, Utah – April 25, 2013
This place needs a new direction. It is poorly ran by an Adminstrator that is not able to run it, heart in the right place, just needs to have more time as a head of a building. The staff for the most part is great. They did have a great Director of Nurses who made the place better for the kids and they let her slip out of their hands, now have a new one with no history of running a building and the facility has gone back to being a mess. At times I feel it is very unsafe to work there. Staff are for the most part all looking for other employment. It is a sad place to work now.
has a good risk manager. has a few good social workers. is a uhs facility
very bad reputation, needs the director of nurses back that they let leave. is losing their program director.
Active Workplace in a ghetto old college school building
Mental Health Worker/Team Lead (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 23, 2012
If I was able to give no stars then I would! This is an all fun and games type of place. If your not in with the in crowd then your not in. If you are the organized type of person that is there to do your job and make sure your doing your job this isn't a place for you. Nothing is ever kept what it's suppose to be. Unbroken promises and not paid enough to do your job. Caring for the clients in this building/facility on their well being isn't what your suppose to do, it's keeping up with the latest gossip and who is doing who. You got it, staff responsibility is to focus on the goals of the clients and not their own. I worked here and it was a nightmare. It didn't take me a long time to realize this isn't the job for me. The clients knew about staff's personal life and not working on their own treatment. This place is a joke. They do give you the run around about a lot of things. This isn't a place where you would find your average normal place of work. Its a rehabilitation for staff as well as clients. This is a place where all the rules are broken, This is a two face company that will get theirs in the end.
nothing about this place is good.
everything from the ceo to the line staff is a con
Psychiatric Nurse (Former Employee) – South Salt Lake, Utah – December 10, 2013
Work as a Supervisor helping to keep the environment safe for all. Learned to multitask and keep in constant contact with upper management. Most of the co-workers are fun and interact well together. Sometimes the environment became somewhat chaotic. Best part was feeling like I was able to contribute to the residents well being.
Staff (Current Employee) – Units – November 28, 2012
Since the new CEO stepped in this year, positive change has been the one constant that most staff and admin have experienced. He cares for the staff and wants things to change for the better. He knows my name. It's about doing things right and better for the kids, now.
great staff, leadership, good communications, growing.
Team Lead/Mental Health Worker (Former Employee) – West Valley City, UT – May 26, 2013
So I started in Sept making 9.50 within two months I was put in charge of a unit with no extra pay but tons of extra responsibilities not to mention the money I spent from my own paycheck to but supplies for the unit activities that was not already provided. LOVE the people I worked with and my actual responsibilities. But it was very emotionally involved!
Psych. tech (Former Employee) – Salt lake city ut – January 19, 2014
While I worked there I asked several employees if they would send their kids there. Not one person said they would. The program does not work, many kids are there for well over a year and leave because they age out. Please don't send your kids there, there are much better programs out there.
Supervisor-Sam (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – September 17, 2013
