always short staff
youth service worker, st. johns michigan - July 19, 2015
If you want a job where you can get a lot of overtime this is for you!
At first i really liked working there but had to quit because i could barely get a day off and when i was off my boss was calling to see if i could work, when i would come in she would hook me and other staff up with gift cards and gas which was appreciated. the unit supervisors and directors are great and hard working along with us. Most of other administration and therapists are ok.
the big downfall is this place is not safe for anyone and someone is always covering up something and telling staff to lie when questioned.
Overall i guess i would say that at first i loved it there then it started to impact my family life because i worked so much. it was a great learning experience and eye opener into this field of work.
Good thing is The kids are taken care of and get better food than a lot of other kids. some get good therapy and some of the favorite kids even get $200 pairs of shoes and others got expensive clothes from the ceo.
