Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) –  East MeadowOctober 27, 2016
Very unorganized!!
A LOT of favoritism, new policies every other day (without prior warning/no rationale), not much to learn, turnover rate is outrageous. Some coworkers are good resources for learning/ have positive attitudes. Others can be lazy and self limiting. There's nobody to advocate for the staff you're on your own with that one!! One day you can show up at work and do your regular job function next day you're juggling balls … a lot of surprises. There's a "point" system in place that penalizes you for tardiness/absences (sometimes the tardiness isn't your fault at times it can take about 10min to get to the unit if something is going on in the building). It's nice that they hire straight out of school but a little common sense should be expected. For example RN's passing on telephone orders to be picked up, stat orders that haven't been picked up, RN's writing orders and forgetting to put the name of the medication.
Pros
12 hour shifts, pay is OK
Cons
Favoritism, negative attitudes, no advocates for staff, "point" system

LPN (Current Employee) –  east meadow NYNovember 30, 2013
Besides the pay being well. The benefits suck and are very expensive. No communication across the board. New changes and policy with out memos being distributed. so, you learn as you go. Will not work with your schedule. They change your schedule with out notice. Very hard to get a problem solved from DON, she doesn't return phone call/or letters of concern. Almost every charge nurse have a negative attitude along with many LPNs. No pay raise. They are always threatening to fire you, cause its a Florida base company who have the Right to work law. So you feel very insecure of your job. Favoritism is greatly shown. Very hard to keep staff. No one from Corporate Cares of what is going on here. They also don't give sick days. Only 60 hrs PTO (personal time off) but it has to be schedule to take off and if you call out sick they have a demerit system 6 points and your gone (fired). call out=1point. late =1/3point. leave cause of illness of family emergency= 1point. its 12 shift so 60 hrs is nothing. Don't waste your time here... RUN!!!!
Pros
Good Pay. $26.00
Cons
expensive benefits, not Nassua County, right to work law, no sick days, demerit system

An employment that would grow to changes in staffing and budget support and still remain intact
Counselor / Psycho-Educational Facilitator (Current Employee) –  East Meadow, NYJune 25, 2012
The day would begin with assessment of dorm/ client needs by conference with treatment staff and security staff, and assembly of necessary materials. We would convene a didactic presentation of treatment issues/ solutions according to security schedule.

I learned to interact positively in a volatile environment while mastering secondary language differences, facilitating group cohesion and interaction with seemingly opposing departmental protocols, at times.

Co-workers (treatment, security, and administration) are involved with interactive supports. They help to create a functional atmosphere for individual success. Which is understandably the hardest part of the process to learn for us all.

The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing all our efforts result in a client engaging in the process of change, and empowerment in his/ her life.
Pros
ability to function as a liaison, incorporating services for the clients, completed an internship, i am networked here, i have received "permanent" employment as a direct result of my involvement with nccc, i have engagement with clients from previous interventions, free lunches in the officers mess.
Cons
no paid vacations.
