Stressful and thankless job
Family Based Therapist (Former Employee) – Phoenixville, PA – November 22, 2017
Salaried employees were docked vacation time should they not meet billable hours (even if there were no clients to be given); also, no paid days off; again, you had to use earned PTO. This applies to Christmas, Thanksgiving etc. Also, should the agency close due to weather, staff are required to use their earned PTO to cover the time and are not permitted to work from home. Supervisors cannot be bothered to deal with crisis or back up their staff should they need it. Work hours are horrible in that you could be gone all day and only put in a few billable hours due to cancellations, no-shows, etc., all of which fall on the staff to make up for lost time. Staff are stressed and under appreciated in this thankless job.
Maximum stress, Little/no support from supervisors
