Clinician (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – November 30, 2017
So this company lacks training. They are very punitive manangment. They immediately punish verses teaching you how to fix something if you make a mistake on paperwork. They act understanding when experiencing life stressors that require you to need time off but then act punitive when you return. Good benefits but poor pay.
Benefits, holiday parties with nice prizes and awards

Clinical (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – November 10, 2017
Management is extremely unprofessional, unethical and unorganized! Culture of the company is cliquish, employee morale is extremely low and there is high turnover. Poor communication stemming from upper management and not as therapeutic as promoted. It's all about the $$$
Unprofessional, lack of training & support, high turnover
Clinician II (Former Employee) – Virginia – August 28, 2017
This company is not a good place to work. They pretend to be one way and are actually the opposite. Management is highly unprofessional. Focus is not on what is best for the client. There is very high turnover across most programs, they don't pay well, and there are horrible benefits. Avoid them if you can.
High turnover, unprofessional atmosphere, dishonest management
Former employee (Former Employee) – Virginia – August 3, 2017
My experience with the company was the worst experience in my career. The lack of organization and communication from upper management was unbelievable. Very unstable , and unprofessional environment to work in. When I started working, they made it seem like this was a great company to be apart of but it's a complete joke. Lack of support and coaching.
Fun, relaxed atmosphere. Great management team. Enjoyed time workimg here

Youth Waver Services (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – May 9, 2017
This company is extremely unprofessional. They waste your time doing 3-4 interviews, tell you they think you're a great candidate for a position they are developing and that you should hear back in a week or 2, if not get back in touch...then when you try to reach out you never hear from them again!! Who does that?!?! Extremely poor HR management...and this is coming from an HR Admin. I never treat applicants like this!
Reimbursement Manager\Credentialing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA 23227 – May 4, 2017
Very high pace billing position for 3 lines of business on 3 systems and 2 claims clearing houses. Keeping up with denied claims for correction & refilling. Time management on balancing the work load could sometimes be a challenge to maintain a high collection rate. The non-administrative staff were a joy to work with.

rewarding positive behavior
short breaks, timing of activities, group sessions for individual expression
Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – March 8, 2017
The company has character problems stemming from upper level management on down. There lacks an identity on the actual goal or purpose in providing care to each client. I've heard that the majority of management and director personnel were pushed out leaving a minimal sense of security and longevity. Good stepping stone but I'd avoid Dominion if you can.
Great company for anyone desiring a career in mental health services
Behavioral Counselor (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – February 28, 2017
Dominion Youth Services is a great company. It has afforded me to gain a vest amount of experience working with students with various disabilities within the school setting. Working with this company, I've learn how to handle crisis situations, how to work along with others as well as the families of the students. The administrators are supportive and they are always available to assist there staff if needed.
Hands on learning experience, supportive adminitration
