Company does not care about its employees, overworked and underpaid
Chemical Health Technician (Current Employee), Saint Paul, MNDecember 18, 2013
Clients are great, but it is unorganized which makes the job more stressful. They are out of compliance with HIPPA and DHS, client care is supposed to be the focus but it is poor.

Poor work environment
Staff member (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNOctober 16, 2013
Pros: most co workers are great
Cons: too many to list
Management- is a joke. The director cares more about herself and bringing in money, then she does about clients or her staff. She has been seen yelling at staff members and also ignoring client care.

Living areas- the clients rooms are disgusting. Staff likes to blame this on clients, but its the facility. Rooms have bugs. There is mice that live in – more... the eating areas and also client rooms. Ceiling is falling down in common areas. When it rains, prepare for water coming in from the ceiling.

Client care- be prepared to be talked down to, treated like a child, and be kept in treatment beyond the amount of time you need. If there is empty beds, counselors are told they cannot graduate a client so they can keep beds filled. Clients are also referred within company even if their needs are better served at another facility.

Staff- the staff can be seen bickering about each other. Techs sitting in their office playing on their cell phones. Lack of nursing. High staff turnover. Tech manager degrading clients and talking down to them. Nurse manager more concerned with herself and her looks, then client care and her nurse turn over.

Most nurses do not stay for more than 1 month due to the way they are treated. Counselor stay is typically 3-6 months. Supervisor stay is 4 months. Tech stay is typically 3-5 months.

There is no room for advancement. Be prepared for empty promises. There is no raises. Be prepared to not have days off that you have earned. – less

Productive Work Place.
Administrative Manager (Former Employee), Gainesville, FLJanuary 28, 2013
Pros: assistance with gas mileage.
Cons: short lunch breaks.
Check Voice Mail and e-mail. Check with Supervisor. If an assessment needs to be completed do so. If not leave to start home visists. All meetings are usually on Tuesdays at 8:00 A.M. until 11:00 A.M. Turn in Productivity to the Secretary. Follow daily Protocol .
To keep up with Productivity and to stay focus with all paper work and documentation.
Management – more... was cooperative and helpful.
Co-workers were team players and fun to be with.
The hardest part of the job was trying to catch the clients at home to complete an assessment.The most enjoyable part was being able to reach our and help people that were disabled. – less
