Is all about productivity
CPST (Former Employee), OHJuly 17, 2014
Is a good opportunity for college grads that need experience. Supervisors are accesible and willing to help and teach. Management pushes productivity to supervisors and eventually they push it to therapists. Productivity surpasses the needs of the clients.

Great place to work
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee), Lorain, OHJune 30, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: pay raise got froze with union contract
This was one of my most enjoyable work experiences. I worked with wonderful people. We were a team and got along so well. Working with mental health individuals can be a task but everyone here made it easier to handle. This was one place that I did look forward going to on a daily basis. Here I was responsible for checking clients in and directing them – more... accordingly, contacting physicians when their clients arrived, taking financial paperwork and insurance information and copying for financial intake. Taking payments for the facility and balancing book at the end of the work day. Scheduling transportation for clients in need, checking clients out and scheduling their follow up appointments. The hardest part of this job was getting emotionally involved when a client would discuss things with you, knowing there was nothing you could do to help but try to give them a pleasant experience while they were there. – less

Strange workplace full of upheaval and in-fighting
Manager (Former Employee), Lorain, OHDecember 15, 2013
Pros: the building itself is nice and the clients will touch your heart.
Cons: mean-spirited environment, bully bosses, gossiping back-stabbing co-workers.
The Nord Center will live on in infamy as the weirdest workplace ever for many of us who've walked in there and just tried to do a good job everyday. The culture promotes mistrust and lack of community, thus leading to back-stabbing and pretty appalling workplace politics. I saw more people come and go in my time there than in all my other workplaces – more... put together. The clients are the bright spot there and if you can focus on them and block everything else out, you can get through the day. My advice: keep looking; with that paycheck will come a heap of misery. – less

I worked at The Nord Center for a short time.
Billing Specialist (Former Employee), Lorain, OHNovember 1, 2013
Pros: it is a free country and you can always walk out of the door.
Cons: no one cares.
In that time I saw more employees quit, fired or ran out.
This is a Mental Health Facility that only cares about the management. I would never recommend this job to anybody. There is no leadership or training. What you learn about your job is completely up to you.

Maintenance Trainee
Job Training (Current Employee), Lorain, OHFebruary 15, 2013
Pros: learning
Cons: i would like to work more hours
I go to work everyday, look at the maintenance requests when I first get in and the team talks about what needs to be done. I can have any type of work when I come in from carpentry to electric and landscape and gardening in the summer. I work with two other people maintaining The Nord Center in a trainee program.It's hard when you make mistakes when – more... you know better. I like what I do and I'm happy but would really like to find a job in a field with maintenance of some sorts. – less
