The company did not seem to care about it's employees.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – March 14, 2016
I did not like how my job description changed and my salary did not. I was expected to do more work for the same pay. The company didn't really seem to care about what I did. I didn't seem to be included in any decisions about my job.
Inpatient Residential Forensic Addiction Counselor (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 25, 2015
Seemed more important to look good than to do good. Often prisoners would complain that they were not getting the life skills they needed to effectively stay clean and sober. Often prisoners requests would go unanswered and a deaf ear was managements response. Heavy on management. Not enough office space to do work. Low pay. High expectations.

Adolescent Counselor (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 26, 2014
Working here, you're magnetically locked in the complex with 8 young delinquents (male or female). There is constantly bickering and fighting among the clients and there isn't enough staff to keep the negative behaviors to a minimum without using over-assertive tones. High stress job and you'll seldom get a kid in there that believes in the program and respects the staff 100% of the time.
Teaching skills groups that are easily received by the clients.
RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – October 29, 2012
Set appointments for clients with the Doctor for their Meds or see their social worker. File answer phone take messages. Co workers were fine I got along with them all. The hardest part of my job was the management. My supervisor was rude if I did something she didn't like she wouldn't take me in her office she would yell or tell me off in front of co workers and the clients..
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, Utah – September 9, 2013
I learned much in my 13 years at Valley Mental Health. I learned how important but how overlooked mental health and substance abuse is viewed by the community in general. The hardest part of my job was the never ending over extended meetings. I would have to agree with the former Mayor Peter Corroon's assistant when she said that Mayor Corroon believed no meeting should ever last more than 30 minutes. I most enjoyable part of Valley Mental Health was that I found some incredibly talented people who want to make a difference to the forgotten people with mental illness.
great job for someone who can tune out babies crying all the time
Group Leader (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – April 29, 2013
unsanitary work environment...worked with children in VERY small rooms without the proper equipment to work with children. Other employees had either no work experience or no knowledge of their job which posed risks to clients.
nice supervisor, understanding of issues yet made no effort to change them
bad work environment when it came to the building and equipment
ARTEC south unit team lead (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 26, 2015
This was a new practice and I was very new to my healthcare career. The psychologist that I worked with were so good to me in learning and I loved being a part of the care given to patients with traumatic brain injuries. Very fulfilling watching them get better with each visit.
