Shift Supervisor Winifred House (Former Employee) – Southington, CT – May 5, 2014
High stress at times, unpredictable clients. But when things were running smoothly youth workers were able to enjoy the job. Work environment was a home and this was very nive and inviting to the clients served..
If you are looking for a job right out of college this is the place for you. Gain experience then move on to an organization you can grow and flourish in. The Bridge has a high turnover based on upper management and lack of appreciation you get from the company. The wage/salary is not competitive with other agencies that offer more.
Experience, communication with DCF, learning about different diagnosis, building relationships with clients.
No breaks, low wage, on call responsibilities every 4 to 6 weeks, low moral, high staff turnover, hands off facility, no room for advancement.
Good place to work if you have the right mix of staff and kids
Program Director (Former Employee) – Manchester, CT – July 5, 2012
I enjoyed working at The Bridge. The people that I worked with had been there for years, therefore they knew how the program should work. They also were aware of what did not work.
people have been there for many years, great support from director
at times, there were kids placed there who weren't a good match for the program, kids had no other alternative due to their age or lack of family support, the boys had difficulty following the rules, and boundaries are highly tested by the kids.
