Psychiatric Technician (Former Employee) – San Dimas, CA – August 7, 2017
I was interviewed, given my schedule and asked to live scan fingerprint. During the wait time to get prints the job was given to someone else. I tried calling the lady I was in contact with, left messages. She never returned my call. That's totally unprofessional and a waste of my time . During the holiday DOJ was back logged. That's not my fault.
Outpatient Therapist (Former Employee) – San Dimas, CA – January 12, 2017
This was the most traumatizing job I've ever had. The work culture is negative and toxic. Focus for therapist is primarily on billing as opposed to the quality of services. Emoloyees at all levels appeared despondent and unhappy. I worked as an outpatient therapist for over two years. Look for another job!
No support, hostile work environment, unrealistic expectations
Instructional Assistant (Former Employee) – California – July 12, 2016
I did not personally work here, however, I had an interview and personally I thought it went well. I was interviewed for about two hours. The individual conducting the interview said I would hear from them within 1 or 2 weeks. I never heard back from them, which is fine if they decided to go with another candidate but I believe that I deserved a call back or an email at least to let me know that someone else had been chosen. I called and left Voicemail to the H.R department as well as to the individual who conducted the interview and never did they bother to return my call. If you are going to take someones time for an interview and you decide to hire someone different at least have the courtesy to inform the applicants. Never will I apply here nor will I recommend this place. Not that they care obviously they dint even bother to return my call. I have a very negative image of this place.
I really enjoyed working at McKinley Children's Center mostly because I was given the opportunity to grow professionally.
Supervising Quality Systems Specialist (Former Employee) – San Dimas, CA – February 17, 2015
A typical work day in my most previous position included responding to email, writing reports, delegating duties to staff within the department and following up with the staff on certain projects. I learned how to work well with others as my position required that I work with all program staff. I also learned time management because we had many deadlines to meet. The management team was very supportive of our department because we played a key role in rolling out data on performance outcomes for our service programs. I really enjoyed working with them especially when making presentations on the data we collected. The hardest part of my job was waiting for departments to turn in data so that we could complete our projects in a timely manner. This taught me how to approach different staff in a professional manner and explain to them the importance of working towards a common good. This was also my most enjoyable task because it allowed me to approach others and get to know all the staff within the organization and learn everyone's working style. I really loved working at McKinley Children's Center.
LVN (Current Employee) – San Dimas, CA – November 10, 2014
My typical day would be working with teen and children on processing their feeling through art and in group. Helping children and families find different ways of coping with grief, loss and anger as a team. Also educating staff on community violence and gang interventions is a specialty I take pride in. I learned how to work with a diverse group of people as co workers and with client's. I learned that you can't take what people say personally because you wont survive a day.
