Excellent workplace where staff is all for the well being of the clients
Supervisor Administrative Assistants (Former Employee) –  Minot, NDApril 14, 2016
A typical work day at the ranch is openly discussing the educational plan for the students that we help that have been abused and/or maybe just less fortunate, providing those kids with a sense of success showing them that its more to life and that someone out there cares. Couldn't have been blessed to work with such a good group of people and enjoy the service that we provide to others.Hardest part about this job is getting to know the kids and when its time for them to leave and having to say good-bye.

Great for experience in psychology while in college...may not be a long term job
Residential Treatment Advisor (Current Employee) –  Fargo, NDJanuary 20, 2013
Gained valuable experience relevant to my degree while in college. Pay is good for full time student, but not for a life long job. Management is fair...not always supportive. Co workers were great. Challenging clients, really enhance patients.
