Family Service Worker (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – December 2, 2016
Southwest Solutions is not a good place to work at if you are looking for advancement. I worked with the company for over two years, and was not given a chance to move forward in the company because of my color. New management is not easy to work it the place is not organized!!
Self sufficiency programs (Former Employee) – Mi – September 3, 2015
Management is clueless . ( depending where you are working) do you wonder why you often see The same job postings every other month for the same job? Interesting The blind leading the blind. The overall staff in office are very nice. Very small space to meet with clients. Large turnover. You probably won't be working there for a long period of time.
Rewarding work if you love the community and passionate about helping others
Clinical Housing Specialist (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 26, 2014
Coworkers and clients were wonderful. Very happy environment to work in. I looked forward to going to work everyday. Management does not manage. The pay and the benefits are very good. Paperwork is crazy but that comes with the territory.
Pay and benefits
Ridiculous productivity standards and uncooperative management
HR Specialist (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 7, 2014
Southwest Solutions is a very well-rounded and effective company. The focus is on serving clients and consumers to the best of the Agency's ability.
Although staff are very busy on a day to day basis the culture is not stifling and most are approachable. Concerns are heard and taken seriously for staff members. The hardest part of the job can be the sheer volume of work but that is lightened by the available supports.
The Agency mission is very pure and overall the staff does their best to see ensure the community's needs are met effectively, efficiently and in a way that addresses individual needs. It is a nice place to work.
Advocate (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – March 21, 2014
To facilitate group meetings and to treating consumers with dignity. I learned that the mentally ill are discriminated against and their rights are violated. I learned how to advised consumers where to go to and help them with the procedures to follow if they feel they have been discriminated against or if their rights have violated. Management was very informative and through training helped me to be sensitive and non-judgmental while interviewing consumers. Co-workers were very helpful with consumer motivation. The hardest part of this job was not to become emotionally involved. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing a consumer's joy when the achieve a goal.
Showing consumers that they are not alone.
The possiblity of becoming emotionally involved with a consumers situation.
Southwest Solutions is a very productive organization.
Substance Abuse Counselor (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 22, 2013
Typical day at Southwest was to come in and the first two people you would see were the secretaries. They would always give me a big smile, and sometimes we would chat. Management, I learned to be open to all things, listen a little more, and not be to quick to jump into anything feet first.
I love working with staff on both floors; which were the social workers, and my contact people for the teens. The hardest was to see a teen sent away for what ever the reason.
I really enjoyed working at Southwest Solutions, and very sorry the company that contracted me there went out of business.
Peer Support Advocate (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – April 27, 2012
I worked for this company. I like my working with others that are in need of assistance with their daily tasks to get things done that they could not be able to do on their own or do not have transportation to do these things. My staff really appreciated my assistance along with the consumers. My consumers stated that they missed me and I would like me to return back to work. I meet some of my consumers in churches and on the street.. They say to me where have you been..
