PCFA- Fulfilling work with inability for balance
Clinical Supervisor (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – August 16, 2016
A day of work starts around 7 or 8am with school case conflicts or issues to attend to, and ended anywhere from 7pm or 8pm, while being on call all day. If you did your job efficiently by being available to your staff and clients, a day would last anywhere from 12-13 hours, 6-7 days a week. The work itself was fulfilling, being able to create your own programs and handle interventions with creative license. The hardest part was creating a decent work and personal life balance. Even if you were not visiting clients, you'd have to deal with writing reports, customer satisfaction, school conflicts, IEPs, being available to support staff, and working on materials for cases. This would not always be handled within business hours and work always piled up. There would be minimal time for self-care. Even management had their hands and plates just as full, so while support was present, it was not always enough. I did learn how to manage my time better.
