Woods hired me as staff counselor that worked with youth that were mentally challenged. With my experience I was prepared to take on this new challenge and start my career. However, the job description did not match with what I was actually doing on the floor in the units. I was someones nurses aid. The job description did not inform me that I will be caring for youth that needed assistance in bathing, changing, feeding, and any other needs that were required. The clients are aggressive physically and verbally. I was not prepared for this line of work. Overall the coworkers make the job more enjoyable and tolerable. The hardest part is getting attacked and having to restrain clients.
clients attacking, no breaks, long probation period.
