Working at The Pines is rewarding by help young kids get their life back on track. Learning them structure and balance, how to have an positive look on life. Staying focus and keeping out of trouble. Being a role model for troubled kids and making a positive influence of their lives. The hardest part of this job is maintaining a constructive environment with different staff not following the same protocol. I enjoyed helping a young person correct their lives and wanting to start a positive future.
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – December 4, 2013
My typical work day started with assissting the clients in the morning by motivating them to get out of the bed and completing their hygiene to make it to school promptly. I held group every morning to get the clients to focus on their goals for the day. I was assissted in group by my co workers. The hardest part of my Job was leaving the clients at the end of the shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was mentoring and taking pride in making sure that a difference was made in the clients life.
