One of the best jobs I've ever had...
Residential Assistant (Former Employee), Sicklerville, NJOctober 17, 2013
Pros: good pay, pleasant staff, fun work environment
Cons: emotionally taxing
Each day almost always threw a curve ball, but that is the nature of working with children with behavioral, psychological, and emotional issues. The job could become stressful, and could cause burn out without some type of positive release. The staff generally takes care of each other and the management is extremely fair. I was exposed to a lot of great – more... training that ranged from problem solving and team building to de-escalation and passive restraints. Hardest part of the job was leaving the stress behind and getting too attached to the clients, and the best part was the staff and the work environment. – less

Situational Response Team (Former Employee), East Orange, NJSeptember 28, 2013
Pros: ot is often. trips to amusements and parties are often with residents
Cons: mangement. job security, and everything else
I was a srt team member and the traveling they tell you youre supposed to do often only applies to particular people while other were treated special and kept local. Supervisors were rude including SRT supervisors. They were last minute with almost everything including schedules and coverage. will definitely be stuck in a double shift often. Kids are – more... barely regulated at many sites you go to work. Team will throw you under the bus in a minute to cover their own butts. – less

It was very nice knowing I made a difference in those young women's lives.
The worst part would have to be people calling out of work, and having to cover their shifts.
