Good place if you are desperate for experience.
Counselor (Former Employee) – Akron – April 23, 2016
If you have no clinical experience, and have a thick skin, then working here may be okay. A typical day at work is non-stop. Counselors have a very heavy work load. The paperwork, and case management requirements are about double what most agencies require of their staff. It is very common to be unable to take a lunch break. Positively, if you can work here, you can work anywhere. The clients are highly difficult, with anti-social tendencies, are often coerced into treatment, and are frequently verbally abusive towards counselors. Management's concerns are more about the bottom-line, with little concern for staff's well-being. The hardest parts about working here are the abusiveness of the clients, having job security being dependent upon clients' positive evaluations of you, being unable to take any days off, and having to enforce many questionable rules with clients. The most enjoyable part was that I know that if I survived here, I can thrive at any other agency.
No days off, and stressful work environment.
