ycw, Waynesville, MO - May 30, 2017
I love my job here, however, they are constantly understaffed and require overtime when there aren't enough employees to cover the shift (this happens quite often). There are many trying circumstances of this job like being exposed to horrific conditions (bodily fluids like spit, urine and feces or worse), obscene language, and even physical altercations resulting in containments for safety. Once the children warm up to you, it's wonderful. You get to impact the lives of children/young adults who need love and support. Other than the occasional containment (maybe once a week or multiple a day it just depends), I enjoy my employment here. I will say this job isn't for everyone, and if you are easily intimidated or very sensitive this is definitely NOT the place for you.
