No initial formal training
GLC (Former Employee), ColoradoFebruary 26, 2015
Pros: the kids
Cons: management
The kids are great and the "vision " they claim to have would be good if management cared more about the kids. I received no formal training and the kids knew that. Legal Procedures were not explained and the staff I worked with was not very helpful. I was told I would learn as I went along. For a locked facility, procedures need to be explained before you start your 14 hours a day of work. Very poorly managed.

Rewarding Career
Coach Counselor (Current Employee), Oracle, AZFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: seeing the attitudes of the kids change during there stay.
Cons: extremely long days. i am not able to see my family kids during the days i work for this company.
Working with the kids can be a difficult challenge but rewarding at the end of the day. You work 3 full day and one half day. A full day is a 16 hour day, half day is 9 hour day. The site I work at there is a lot of people burning out fast. I believe do to the high stress levels not so much with the kids but the long working days with little sleep. The site I'm located at is going through restructuring. Management is working hard to change the work culture and properly train new employees.

Great team environment
Group Leader/Coach Counselor (Former Employee), Watkins, COJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: great compensation and benies, exceptional work with youth
Cons: favoritism and gender bias
Wonderful place to work with exceptional youth. Environment is clean, safe, but intensive. Great training and benefits, also salary is competitive for the industry. Expectations for staff are as high as for student/athletes. Management can be difficult to work with and there is a clear practice of favoritism.

Case manager
Case Manager (Current Employee), Queen Creek, AZDecember 13, 2014
A day in the life of a case manager at Rite of passage is challenging, yet rewarding. Working with youth and witnessing the growth of the children is an amazing process. Although, the youth's progress is rewarding, being acknowledged by management is also rewarding and unfortunately there is none in the work environment. It is quick to point out the wrong and seldom the good. Additionally, in this position the work is never complete and because of this, one leaves everyday feeling incomplete. Lastly, the management tends to not have worked in the position and does not understand what all it entails. Due to this, there is a lack of direction and additional duties assigned to a position where there is never enough time to complete already assigned duties.

I found Rite of Passage to be very well rounded and a very theraputic place to work. I helped me gain valuable skills as it was my first time on the Juvenile justice side of counseling. I truly enjoyed the set up and the frame.

Tough work place, adolescent girls with anti-social issues and very dangerous

Pros: great team and very cohesive team
Cons: politics of the system, yet tolerable
I supervised a unit that was of the highest acuity of dangerous behavior to self and others. We were efficient on keeping the unit a sense of lower acuity and disarming conduct blow ups.

Case Manager (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OhioMarch 24, 2014
Poor management; excessive workload with no overtime/compensation (just expected); no credibility; the company is all about 'show' but they cannot back-up what they 'say they do'; favoritism to staff regardless of the specific behaviors, lawful or not

Has potential
Coach/Counselor (Former Employee), Yerington, NVFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: getting to help youth turn their lives around
Cons: working 7 days straight without ever leaving the property.
This job has such potential but due to is unorganized management, and renegade coaches it failed to be what it was set up to be. I learned a lot however from this job that I have been able to apply in my life. I have learned patience, and that just because people make a mistake doesn't mean that they meant disrespect or even the outcome that came from the mistake in which they caused. The hardest part of this job was finding a balance. Who had the best interest of the juveniles at heart and who had their careers. The most enjoyable part of this job has come after I left the job. Seeing the juvenile boys who I coached and counseled succeeding in life, and that they make an effort to make contact with me just to tell me that they have turned their lives around. This job was a lot of he said she said, but it has been one of the most rewarding jobs I have had the honor to hold.

it had it's up and downs
coach / councilor (Former Employee), Yerington, NVJanuary 5, 2014
Pros: meals provided and houseing for staff that lived out of town
Cons: having to put up with upper management
Get the boys up in the morning, take them to breakfast, back to the unit to clean it and get ready for school, take them to school, take them to lunch, do their physical work outs, back to school, go to dinner, back to the unit, showers, group meeting, then get them into bed. A lot of patience. Did not the upper management. My co-workers for the most part were good. To hear that a boy that was sent home had been killed by rival gang. Watching the boys graduate be fore going home.

Work at another ROP site or Company
Coach (Former Employee), Tustin, CADecember 19, 2013
Pros: the teens
Cons: co workers and pay
Working with the teens in the group home was both rewarding and challenging. However, working with half of the staff at the company is a challenge in itself, as there is too many people trying to be in charge. If you can handle working with some people who are know it alls, try to tell others what their job is, no flexibility with working with the teens, and clicky, then by all means apply to ROP in Tustin, but good luck. I forgot to mention, you will get shorted on most of your paychecks, and the hours are horrible.
