Great Program, Horrible Place to Work
Support Staff (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake CitySeptember 3, 2015
I loved working at Odyssey House. Helping the clients was rewarding and the friendships you make are great. However, expect to work double shifts - most often because someone doesn't show up to work. Turnover is HIGH. Pay is not adequate. Management doesn't seem to care.
Pros
Rewarding atmosphere
Cons
long hours, low pay, need better management
