Highly abusive, extremely disorganized, survivalistic environment.
Behavioral Health Tech/Psychiatric Technician (Former Employee) – Barling, AR – October 10, 2015
After working here for several years I became a statistic of the sporadic attrition of co-workers to serve the needs of the same long term management structure as Vista transitioned to Valley. Hundreds of persons have been unfairly dismissed as a product of the random unbalanced work milieu and clinically dramatic co-workers, both during multiple ownership transitions and chronic unnecessary layoff sprees. There is no value in the quality of care with which you administer, only unpredictable favoritism from mercurial management coup d'états. After servicing thousands and working with hundreds of co-workers, my service was terminated along with nearly approximately 50% over the course of the transition in ownership from Vista Health Services to Valley Behavioral Health. If you are in the clique, you may present any behavior that would normally require your employment termination without consequence (i.e. sleeping on the job, fighting and assault, drug and alcohol use). Occupational narcissism is rampant, where depending on the time and mood, you may be told that you don't matter, have no qualifications, may lose your license or can not participate in basic and clearly necessary routine patient and staff interactions.
Rich psychiatric environment from which to garner career experience.
You will last an average of about a year, until the next attrition.
