I don't even know where to begin. I'm an on call staff and it seems like everyone is an on call staff, and when you're on call you can basically get away with anything like, not showing up to work, calling out, not getting mandated etc. Unfortunately for the very few full time workers that means working longer than expected, dealing with disrespectful management, and constantly getting abused by the students. No one is safe, they fire people before they can even find their replacement. I also hated when they switched my unit. There are certain units I purposely make sure I do not pick up shifts for, just to avoid feeling uncomfortable and unsafe. Management will trick you into thinking they put you on for the unit you picked up a shift for and then when you show up they'll tell you to go to the unit that you hate because no one wants to work there, and its either you take it or get fired. Fortunate for me I was in school and only worked overnights, but I've seen and heard a lot of stories. I do not work there anymore and I will never go back. Oh yea I forgot you barely get any breaks. Especially working the overnight. Overnight shifts are ten hours long and they only offer 15 minute breaks and that's it. What the is 15 minutes going to do? and after 8 hours a day aren't you suppose to get overtime? Well at Devereux you don't. The pay is horrible especially for what the kids put staff through on a daily basis. It's not worth it. I make more at my new Job as an assistant and I barely do difficult task or have kids hitting and insulting me for fun.
