The kids are amazing, plentiful hours and they fly by

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
