Postive learning environment
Residential Counselor (Former Employee), Portsmouth, VAJune 24, 2014
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 – more... with different staff not following the same protocol. I enjoyed helping a young person correct their lives and wanting to start a positive future. – less

Mental Health Technician (Former Employee), Norfolk, VADecember 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 – more... 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. – less

Roll with the punches.
Staffing Coordinator (Former Employee), Portsmouth, VAJune 7, 2012
If you are the type who can roll with the punches, then this is the type of place to work. It can be a very stressful environment. Lots of changes of management in a short amount of time.

Residential Counselor (Former Employee), Portsmouth, VAApril 18, 2012
Pros: learning experience, free lunch, made a difference for young women
Cons: mandates often, short staff often, high turn over rate, no stability, no teamwork
I enjoyed very much working with troubled adolescents, but you must have a good team to work with to feel safe & give effective treatments to the groups.

No Support from Management, Some staff run the units with fear, staff have people clock them in and out. Overtime for Managers Good Old Buddies. Incidents not reported. Or once reported not taken care of. Running units understaffed, Managers unwilling to come in to cover the unit.
