Opportunity to provide positive mentoring to the youth
Assistant Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Waverly, TNDecember 22, 2014
The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the young men assigned to the facility. Getting to know most of them on a personal basis and being a mentor to them.

A chance to help kids with issues, but also very stressful

Hard Environment with little support
Youth Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Waverly, TNAugust 5, 2013
This job was hard. I would go in at 2 pm and work all day with teenage boys that have behavioral problems. I would work in the dorms, outside, and in the cafe. The entire time that I am responsible for six- twelve students that I have to maintain fifteen minute checks on.I then would be on a mandatory overtime list which would put me working till 8 am. This would be five times a week. There is two weeks of training provided but it doesn't go with what my responsibility. The co-workers were also very stressed and overworked.
Pros
good pay
Cons
mandatory overtime
