a place to care for great individuals
Adult Development Trainer - Maryland Line Facility (Former Employee) – Freeland, MD – May 13, 2015
This place is a great place to work if you're focused on caring for others. Some of the previous reviews though hit the nail on the head. The biggest was if you aren't in the management click you're routinely ignored, and if you make head way with a consumer as your patients are called your credit is given elsewhere, typically to the presiding nurse/manager. The behavior plans were ridiculously written with positive reinforcement being used in such a delayed manner that it served no purpose, or used anything tangible for that individual.
Yet the biggest gripe from working there is the management team and their lack of care for their staff. As long as positions were filled in the more difficult houses they considered their job done and couldn't be found after 430. If it was a holiday be prepared for the statement that if you have off you're going to be paid twice if you work that holiday, and when only making 22 thousand a year you didn't want to miss out on overtime. Because if you decided to take the holiday off as already promised to you, you lost other overtime you might have recieved. If a situation arose that their training didn't prepare you for be ready to face a review, where you do not get to defend yourself, or even know it's happening, because you are typically found at fault even though you aren't prepared.
