Focused, Professional and secure environment
Youth Specialist (Former Employee), Royal Oak, MIFebruary 2, 2015
Pros: the salary and good health benefits
Cons: performing physical restraints on the youth
I enjoyed working a Judson Center Facility. My co- worker were very helpful and supportive in crisis situations. The hardiest part was watching the clients become depressed and lonely when there family members failed to conduct facility visits. The most enjoyable part was reuniting the youth back with there parents after their rehabilitation. I learned a great deal about the juvenile justice system in the city of Detroit.

Hard Working Foster Care Case Managers
Case Manager (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MIAugust 26, 2014
Pros: my co-workers were supportive
Cons: cases cut into private life, because you are on-call a lot.
No two days are necessarily going to be the same, because of the nature of foster care case management. Each of us are given a certain number of families on our caseload, Our job is to examine each case;meet the needs of the family toward a goal of family re-unification or the loss of parental rights in which case the child or children would be placed in a foster care home. Each case has to go through the court system and therefore each case file must be kept up-to-date, with any action taken on the case documented. There were monthly home visits, foster home visits, school visits, and quarterly court hearings on each family.
I learned how juggle time, and resources. Our Management person was a bit aloof, but she did her job.
One of the most challenging parts of the job was fitting all of the unexpected things that constantly popped up into a schedule that was already busting at the seams.
What I liked most about the job was helping families work out their problem and reunite.
My co-workers and I were very unified; helping and encouraging each other whenever possible.

great place to influence childen to become successful and mentor the youth
direct care worker (Former Employee), Royal Oak, MIAugust 12, 2014
Pros: got to work with children and experience new things
Cons: it was pretty up and down as far as stability
i learned different kinds of therepuetic measures to reach out to these abuse and neglected children.there was team work and comunication on the shift i performed on.very laid back yet we had our moments to shine and really add to the puzzle of completion in these young ladies lives.the hardest part of the job was the turn over rate and dealing with how the girls handled all the changes.the most enjoyable part of this job is to make a difference ,bond with and help prepare these young teens for life and all that it has to offer.also to offer them coping skills to deal with there past and the negative hurdles that they over came in there life,so that they could become more productive in todays society.

The hours were very flexible and I was able to go to college full time and hold down another job. The pay was ok and there no benefits. There was no room for advancement and no job security.

Pros: flexable work schedule
Cons: late evenings
There's never a duel moment. I have learned that everyone is different in there own way. Co worker are caring and helpful. The hardest part of the job is going into different environments not familiar with. The most enjoyable is knowing you have helped someone at the end of the day.

Terrible Place To WORK!
Job Coach (Former Employee), Walled Lake MI.October 7, 2013
Pros: helping mentally disabled people.
Cons: your actually working through them for other companies!
Assisting clients with THEIR jobs PLUS doing your job. Monitoring mentally challenged adults, changing diapers and working at different companies with the client.. who is not capable of doing their assigned job. But it must be done so u do it. The Judson Center has low pay and u work 3 jobs in one! HATED IT!

Exciting, productive, and interesting workplace that I enjoyed
Direct Care Worker (Former Employee), Royal Oak, MIOctober 3, 2012
Pros: free tickets to sports events, concerts, etc.
Cons: staying over if relief calls off
A normal day at work was exciting, interacting with mentally disabled individuals and assisting them with everyday living. I learned different ways in a positive manner to deal with consumers. I enjoyed working with my co-workers, who were team players and serious when completing tasks. The hardest part of the job was encouraging residents to eat meals they refuse to eat. The most enjoyable part of the job was spending time with consumers, taking them out for outdoor activities.
