Very challenging behaviors from the students and some isolation amongst staff as we each worked at a different school site;.
Mental Health Client Specialist (Children's school (Former Employee), Santa Cruz, CAJune 26, 2013
Pros: good pay and excellent benefits. i also enjoyed working with whole families.
Cons: management fed splits between older staff and new staff, at times would go behind staff's back to check up on them.
Provide mental health support to assigned classroom, conduct individual play sessions and one group session for the whole classroom each day. Intervene if a student or the classroom has a crisis. After being at the school site - therapist goes to youth that require outpatient services in order to benefit in their education and mange their feelings and behaviors. Then the last hour or more before the end of the day and then perhaps going to a students house to provide family therapy. Management remained focused much more on documentation than the actual care and services staff offered. I found my co-workers as very tight knit often times excluding newer team members and they resisted offering direct feedback - preferring to complain about an issue to the supervisor. The hardest was feeling alienated from the larger team. The best part was sessions with the students and and families.

Volunteer (Former Employee), Santa Cruz, CAOctober 23, 2012
Pros: free snacks
Cons: restrooms more clean
I just dont like how some co-workers dont follow the dress code.
Workers will show up to work with jeans, tennis, sweathers it just doesnt look professional at all. For food service more hours than just have to work 4-5hrs a day.

A typical day at work was reception, switchboard back -up, customer service data entry. I was a bilingual clerk II. I learned a lot of customer service and did a lot of contact with parents, legal guardians, made appoints with their case workers. I did a lot of confidentially data entry on their case history. Management was good I loved my manager and coworkers very helpful and very friendly! the hardest part of my job was going home at the end of the day I loved that place! the most enjoyable part of my job was working with all the people there.
