Terrible management, no communication.
Youth Care Professional (Current Employee) – Varick, Ny – February 13, 2017
Working at Hillside can be enjoyable at times if you are able to develop a positive relationship with the youth you oversee. Although, if you are an overnight staff, specifically at the Varick Campus, don't expect to enjoy your job very much if any. Not only is the overnight management highly and immaturely prejudiced, but there is disturbingly poor communication. There is little to no communication between both management and day staff when it comes to keeping the overnights in the know. On top of that, overnight staff are the only ones whom the rules are enforced upon. I have no doubt it can be an enjoyable employment opportunity, although without the communication and sense of support and value, this job is certainly not worth the effort seldom few put in. The pay isn't much motivation either. A potential future employee's success at Hillside is sadly almost solely dependent on who their direct management is and what their relationship with said person is like.
Poor management, poor communication, no value of employees
