Intense work Enviorment
Residential Counselor (Current Employee), Buffalo, NYOctober 24, 2012
A typical day is school in the AM, following an agenda, group discussion and recreation. Constant youth crisis, constant management demands without direction. Its not an environment conducive for the Residential Counselor's. I can say however, with the amount of hours put in, you can really earn a good wage. Of course, it will take a toll on your health, – more... but you can get what you need. Co-workers are great. They really endure a heavy load of criticism from management without, once again, the best support. But they stay focus because of there care for the youth. The hardest part of the job is not working with the youth, but the constant unnecessary management changes with no direction. So your working to stay within guidelines, but there is no direction. So that brings write-ups, coaching sessions and ultimately termination out of your control. The one thing I can say I enjoyed are the youth. Even in there most trying time, they keep there spirits as uplifted as possible and to feel there resilience and respect given, really shows where they are mistaken. So as a Counselor, the youth were a pleasure to encounter on a daily basis. – less

Exhausting and not that you would expect
Residential Counselor (Current Employee), Williamsville, NYJuly 8, 2012
I went into this job with all intentions of doing my best, trying my hardest and loving it. I knew it was going to be a difficult job, its my career field, and I knew what to expect. The only reason I did not succeed, was because I was told one thing for my job requirments, and then told to do another after training. The staff are not there for the – more... job, they are there for the excellent pay, and great benefits. I loved the actual job, but over all, it was not what I wanted. Its perfect for some people, but I couldnt leave my heart at home when I walked in to work. – less

Great staff and co-workers and wonderful families
Mentor (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYMay 1, 2012
Worked with Family and youth daily.
Learned the importance of affective communication and being firm with youth in order to see change in the right direction.
Worked closely with management to get new workload and dicuss cases.
Hardest part of the job, when youth would get themselves in trouble with school or the law- it was hard to see them failing.
Most – more... enjoyable part of the job was working with all the different people of the case (team members) and of course seeing the positive change in the youths life. – less
