Very good.
Professional Parent II (Former Employee), New Lisbon, NJAugust 23, 2015
Pros: Great opportunity to make a change.
Cons: Limitations and training.
A typical day at work 8 hours often asked for overtime. I learned how to get certain individual juveniles how to adjust there daily living patterns in a positive way. The hardest thing is to make a teenager believe in you that you can and want to help them by giving them the proper guidance. Management works very well with the professional parent to make sure the juvenile meets these requirements. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is seeing a kid become productive wanting to change and learning from his past mistakes to become a good citizen.

The kids are fun but management does not treat staff well
House Supervisor (Former Employee), Tucson, AZAugust 13, 2015
upper management does not treat house personnel fairly and are not considerate to family needs or requests. the kids will love and appreciate what a house staff would do, get great results out of the kids and if management does not like you or thinks you don't do your job, they will terminate you regardless of how the kids feel about you. sad but true.

A wonderful and exciting experience
State Director (Former Employee), New Lisbon, New JerseyJune 23, 2015
Pros: plenty of opportunity for advancement
Cons: Long demanding hours
Each day brought new challenges. I worked with juvenile delinquents and abused kids and learned that trusting an adult is difficult for them because there have been no healthy adults in their lives.
I worked with an amazing group of dedicated people who were committed to the welfare of these kids. I was part of the management and Corporate team.
The thing I enjoyed the most was the trust and caring that these kids showed me. This was a turning point in many of their lives.

Employees as well as the kids don't matter...Money comes first!
Direct Care (Former Employee), Madison, MDJune 18, 2015
Pros: co-workers and 90% of the kids
Cons: Overall Program
Most of my co-workers and 90% of the kids were a pleasure to work with. Management appeared in the beginning to know all that was required as whole team (management to the counselors) to go about successfully teaching and rehabilitating the troubled male youths in order for them to return to their communities as a positive citizen.In a year and a half of my 3 years I drastically seen the program decline in its purpose.

Chief Administrator
CHIEF ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee), Dowingtown PAJune 8, 2015
Pros: Pay, Fantastic People to work with
Cons: Hours Needed to do job correctly
There was no typical day at work. Managing the operations of a 120 bed male facility and female facility required me to schedule my day around the needs at the time. Long hours were required to do the job correctly.

The hardest part of the job is balancing it with your personal life. You constantly have to be on call and available during emergencies.

Interesting and Unpredictable atmosphere, great team to be apart of.
Regional Business Manager/ Human Resource Manger (Current Employee), Gouldsboro, PAJune 4, 2015
Pros: Having such a tight core of employees, and being an important part of the team.
Cons: Pay is not the greatest, with all the liabilities and expectations the salaray is a little lower than I would like.
Usually come in assist youths with daily needs and issues, maintain a safe environment. Get everyone down to breakfast supervising youths at all times, and making sure everyone is accounted for.Assist the Medical Coordinator with med pass, then get everyone to school and where they need to be. Head up to my office meet with the Program Director, Chief Administrator, Compliance Director, and even Program – more... Developer to take care of any issues or work on that end. Take care of some calls, emails, and meetings get some work done with payroll or sending appropriate things like paperwork to the appropriate employees in the corporate office. Hardest part of the job is staying on top of the ball meeting deadlines, working under pressure, and not knowing what to expect next. Most enjoyable part is the work experience making the essential networks along the way, being apart of the administration team, and ultimately helping change some of these youths livelihoods. – less
