Supervisor in Child Protection (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 31, 2014
Hennepin County child protection serves a very diverse population with over 40% of the population being people of color. There are significant populations of African Americans, East Africans, Latinos and Native Americans from several tribes. It is also a large organization serving thousands of families. With recent budget constraints, difficult decisions have been made to keep true to our core mission of permanency, safety and well being while maintaining children in their homes. I have found the work challenging and rewarding. I have developed friendships which will last forever and have been taught about many other cultures and life experiences. I have learned how to stretch myself and question myself as I continue to learn and grow.
worked to death, yet was not allowed to give complete customer service to the clients because no time to do it

poor customer service, never allowed to work a case fully. never given a long time to complete a case. 30 mins before or after your shift on the phone or in person with clients is not enough to help them. evidence of this is now coming out in the media...such as elder abuse and them dumping records
Hennepin County could be a productive fun place to work.
HSPHD / Senior Psychiatric Social Worker (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – March 6, 2018
Since the department is an outreach position, mental health crisis intervention within the community which could sometimes be both stressful and dangerous. Learned a great deal in crisis intervention within the community. Workplace culture sometimes was fun, other times could very intense and stressful. Supervisors sometimes underestimate the risk involved in mental health crisis intervention within the community and also inflexible with regards to decision. I enjoyed working with my co-workers.
