Productive for helping people who need services
Behavioral Health Worker (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 16, 2013
NET is a good agency, and is known for providing resources for people who needs them. NET has a lot of positions in their agency such as BHRS/STS, case management, Cape and a lot of umbrella agencies.
I had the opportunity to work in the BHRS/STS program and have done so for the last three and half years. A typical work day was to come to work at 8:00 am to 3:30 pm and work with assign clients that have behavioral problems, disorders and/or autistic.
I learned a lot within my three years with NET. I've learned how to communicate with children high and low on the autistic spectrum. NET also provides continuous training seminars as well.
However the management is not set up well. I dedicated my services with NET for three and half years and now I'm part-time to not having any work because they were inaccurate about authorization and clients getting services.
The co workers are nice; a lot of different personalities.
There were not any hard part of the job; sometimes the students are hard to handle, but if you're good with talking to people and have empathy/understanding, you'll do fine.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping these kids with whatever assistance they needed at the time. The joy of having these kids/students communicate with you and share what's bothering them is truly a blessing.
good pay, when you're actually working
a lot of independent contractors positions
