Dysfunctional... minus the "fun"
Counselor (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 10, 2017
This has to be one of the most unorganized companies I have ever worked for. They have an abundance of supervisors on staff, yet you can never get a direct answer from any of them.... You ask one a question, they re-direct you to another one, and it just goes on and on. Counselors appear to be the ones to ask questions, as they are the one's who keep the programming running.
The majority of the supervisors are young, and really have no idea what they are doing. This is probably why they have such a high turnover rate for counselors. They do promote from within, but that is based on whether or not the supervisors consider you a favorite. I worked at the men's building and I would compare it to high school. The gossip and BS that you would hear the supervisors say to one another regarding counselors and other staff was unnecessary.
The intake supervisor was the worst, as she was known to give wrong information, rather than tell you she did not know. This is another area that has a large turnover of staff, as many do not care for her. It's obvious this is the first real job she has ever had, since completing college, as she has no people skills and gets defensive when you try to provide useful advice or assistance.
Staff here does not stick around for very long, which explains why so many staff are new. I would recommend this company as a good place to "get your feet wet" but nothing more when it comes to career longevity.
