You have to love what you do for the kids
Psychologist (Former Employee) – Giddings, TX – February 7, 2016
You can't work for this agency and not want to help the children. My issues were not with the children but with the staff. It was nothing but a drama filled soap opera. Also my supervisor (she transferred after the person that hired me retired) made my life terrible and apparently I found out she made other people lives like that too. She was just a jerk, which made the environment very uncomfortable. When I became very ill she was even telling people I was faking and then when she found out I almost died, she had the audacity to visit me. Yet, told people I was going to die. I felt safer with the children I worked with and helped than the majority of the staff on campus. Too much staff/staff physical relationships, swapping partners, staff sleeping with children, etc. Then the workload it just ridiculous, you are never caught up with your work because you typically come into an environment that most department are already behind on paperwork. There were many nights I left at 12a to commute an hour home.
Childish staff, non-supportive management
