This is a good place to work. I enjoyed working with the people I worked with and the environment in which it was in. I got to make my own work schedule which was very nice. The only bad thing I have to say is that there was a decent amount of paperwork.

In community mental health care, there is always room for improvement. This is certainly the case here. However, for what it is, it is not a bad place to start one's career and likely move on to more lucrative opportunities.
Therapist (Current Employee) – Kingwood, WV – December 13, 2016
The company is great for those who are beginning in the field to gain a better understanding of mental health including the treatment planning process, working as part of a treatment team, and providing appropriate care. Typical day at work included individual therapy sessions, contact and communication with parents, clients, and community members. The most difficult part of the job is maintaining caseloads of 70+ clients. The most enjoyable part of this job for me was the people that I work with in the immediate satellite office.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Clarksburg, WV – April 30, 2016
I worked for this company for a very short while. While I was there the caseloads were insane! E-Mails constantly, on weekends and after closing, requesting work to be completed; however, I was reprimanded for doing my notes after I went home, on my own time, so I was able to meet billing requirements during the day. I did learn a huge amount in a short period of time, but only because it was NECESSARY to get through the day. Other case managers, therapists and psychologists were great to work with, however management was horrendous. The hardest part of the job was occasionally learning some things on my own because I was told not to ask other case managers for help sometimes. Some days always busy, some days nothing and get in trouble for not meeting billable time. The billing time is not taken into consideration during winter months when the roads are bad and cancellations/no shows happen. There are a lot of negatives to this place. They do not see you as a person, only how much money you can make them. You get one chance to make billing quota, after that you're fired! They take advantage of their workers and sometimes force you to stay over 1,2 even 3 hours and you are stuck with the appointment by yourself. The pay is not that great, especially for the work you do. It was $10/hr for years and just recently raised to $11.51...which is very poor for what is done throughout the day. Call centers with high school diplomas make more than that. The most enjoyable part was time with the other case managers, therapists and psychologists. I enjoyed the flexible schedules andmore... getting out of the office, but that was about it. It was a paycheck and experience for another, better place. I've been told there have been double digit case managers in that location that have come and left within a couple years. They are in desperate need of someone I hear. Best for people just graduating college to gain experience, but not for the experienced case manager at all...you won't last long if you are experienced. Great job until you get a job, once you start, make diligent efforts for another CM position elsewhere.less
drug reps cater lunches at times, flexible hours, great case managers, great therapists and great psychologists you work with, benefits, PTO available
$11.51/hr isn't something you can live off of, Management has power trips, Basically RUN the facility, not enough hours in the day, billable time is unrealistic during winter months, management sees you as how much money you can make and not as a person, i'm sure there's others but i can't think of any right now
This company does little to retain good workers and there was very little potential for advancement. I worked there for eight years and the pay was not significantly worth the time I spent there. I did enjoy my job; however.
Mental Health Therapist (Former Employee) – Clarksburg, WV – June 13, 2015
A typical day at work began by visiting a school(s) to provide therapy to students. Then to the clinic to write progress notes and see scheduled patients for the rest of the day. USC provided excellent training and has good people to work with and is a friendly atmosphere. USC has good benefits but the pay needs to be increased especially for those who have years of experience. An excellent organization to start with and perhaps to grow as well.
Behavioral Health Technician (Current Employee) – Glenville, WV – April 1, 2015
I love working for the company! It is a great job for anybody that truly enjoys tending to individuals with disabilities. My supervisor goes the extra mile for the clients and employees. My supervisor really listens to what we have to say too! I have learned so much about my clients and their families as well. The hardest part of the job is to not get attached to clients. The most enjoyable part of my job is when clients make improvements. A typical day at my job is doing what the client wants to do.
BHT/Security (Current Employee) – Bridgeport, WV – March 17, 2015
I been with United Summit Center going on a year and i love it the same as the first day i step my foot in the front door. I respect my co-workers and we get along just like a family. I will miss them when i relocate to South Carolina . I have been a EMT for 25yrs and i would leave that field to stay in this field as a BHT.Behavioral Health Technician.
Behavioral Health Technician (Current Employee) – Weston, WV – July 29, 2014
With this job there are never enough people to do the job so when you get sent to a clients house we may be there for a few hours or a few days. Never knowing when you will be able to go home or being instructed to sit outside in your car for the entire shift if the client does not want us to be there.
USC was a great place to work for and I really enjoyed working with the clients as well as the office staff.
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) – Clarksburg.WV 26301 – June 16, 2014
A typical day at USC would be arriving at your clients home and starting your book work until the client was awake. Once the client was awake you would start with their daily needs and then continue with preparing their meals and get them ready for their daily activities. I learned a lot from my employment with USC, like how to provide care to needy clients and make sure they where fed and taken to the Doctors when they needed to go, I also learned a lot about the medical aspect of caring for the clients. Management was very easy to get along with and always willing to help out if there was ever an issue that needed attention. My co-workers were always very kind and hard working and there if I had any questions or concerns. I would have to say caring for the clients would of been the easiest and the hardest part of working for USC because you never knew from day to day what kind of client you would have to deal with from day to day, whether they would be easy to work with that day or be completely difficult.
While working at USC I did not recieve free lunch. I payed for my lunch out of my own pocket.
Durring my employment with USC we where aloud short brakes long enough to smoke, then return right back to working.
