Productive and Rewarding
Psychiatric Program Specialist (Current Employee) –  Torrance, CANovember 10, 2015
Being at work knowing that your kindness and care helps patients with transitioning from homelessness to finding housing. We as mental health workers learn everyday that everyone needs a little help sometimes. Great co-workers and management makes the job easy but can be very stressful at times, but at the end of the day the main goal is to make sure the patient is taken care of.
Pros
Making a difference in someone's life
Cons
short breaks

Decent paying job with no room for growth
Medical Records Technician II (Former Employee) –  Torrance, CAOctober 14, 2013
I worked at Del Amo for 4 years, and while I enjoyed the contact with my direct supervisor, management at the hospital showed favoritism and there was very little room for advance with in the company

Know Before You Go: This job stinks
Worker Bee (Former Employee) –  TorranceJanuary 2, 2013
This is one of the worse nursing jobs (on any level) that you could possibly apply for in Los Angeles County. First of all, RN's - you are going to be paid $10 or more dollars less per hour for similar positions elsewhere. Non licensed staff - There is nothing but disrespect and lack of appreciation for your work or as a member of the team. There is also a culture of workplace bullying condoned and supported by management on all levels. Micromanagement is the term of the day, and save money at the expense of staff safety and poor patient care is the flavour of the month. The most enjoyable part of this job is clocking out and going home.

If you are unfortunate enough to have set up an interview for this job, once you hear what they want to pay you, know then, you've already been disrespected as a professional.

Do yourself a favor the new year. Earn what your worth and only work for companies that care about you.
Pros
in the southbay
Cons
pay, management including ceo

Best teamwork
Sr. Psychiatric Assistant (Former Employee) –  Torrance, CAOctober 6, 2012
Getting report from AM Charge Nurse, a typical day getting patients ready for dinner, showers homework and groups, my co-workers were awesome, we still keep in touch, hardest part was advancement, the most joyable part of the job, being able to speak with your superior and things getting done, open forum.
Pros
client satisfaction
Cons
no advancement
