Good place to begin your career, not a place to stay long term
Resident Monitor (Former Employee), Marysville OhioJuly 28, 2013
Pros: working with residents, good benefits
Cons: long hours, poor management, lack of training
I worked security for this organization for 2.5 years. For the most part I really enjoyed my experience with the organization. Working with residents can be very rewarding and is fun. However, the work environment for security staff is very stressful, aided by the fact that we are poorly trained. Due to poor training, management micromanages which is – more... frustrating. Management also attempts to motivate workforce through fear and intimidation. This tactic gave the impression that you were expendable to the organization and not valued. Dealing with management was the hardest part of the job. The residents are the best part of the job. – less

Great for Entry-level position
Counselor (Former Employee), Marysville, OHApril 30, 2013
I enjoyed working at West Central because of the majority of the people and getting to see success stories with clients. However, there is no room for advancement, no raises, benefits kept getting cut, and very little employee recognition. One staff meeting included the Executive Director telling employees they had no morals or values due to other coworkers – more... engaging in unethical behavior. My position was 'counselor'and it was more a 'group leader/case manager.' I left to be an addictions counselor with another agency, but am grateful fit the opportunity I had at West Central. – less

Great place to work and grow as a professional
Chemical Dependency Counselor (Former Employee), Marysville, OHDecember 19, 2012
Pros: education
Cons: pay rate
Great co-workers that have become life-long friends. Open door policy with administration. Hardest part of job was deciding when a resident needed to be unsuccessfully discharged for various reasons. The best part of the job was watching a resident grow and be discharged successfully.
