Teacher Counselor (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNApril 5, 2017
Need more people with morals. There's a lot of adult attitudes and people who aren't willing to call out when an adult is wrong. Pay was okay, but could've been better.

Productive workplace and room to advance
Terri Davis, Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Madison, INMarch 30, 2017
It can be stressful, but there is a lot of support from direct and upper management. There is absolute room for advancement and they reimburse for mileage, moving expenses if relocating, and the health insurance is affordable.
Pros
Great teamwork environment; reimbursements for phone and mileage
Cons
Work and life balance could be better; a lot of travel time for cases

It's awesome at times and the other times it really sucks
Residential Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Bartlett, TNMarch 27, 2017
The quality of the work can seem worth the many hours giving and the minimum amount of money received at times. It is work being done to assist with the work life/balance.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
No life for others

Very demanding job
MST Family Counselor (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAMarch 20, 2017
I worked at YV for about 7 months. It was a very demanding job, as you are on-call 24/7, at the discretion of your clients, there is no work/life balance, little room for growth, and not culturally-friendly (regarding therapies and tools for families).
Pros
flexibility in schedule
Cons
hours, tasks, constraints of MST

Difficult but rewarding job
AmeriCorps Service Member (Former Employee) –  Douglasville, GAMarch 19, 2017
Difficult place to work as the youth are very troubled. Can be emotionally exhausting. If you are on a good team, you are able to make a big difference in the children's lives, however if your co-workers/team are not supportive, this place is exhausting.
Pros
Potential to be very rewarding work
Cons
Other staff members, low pay, underappreciation

Busy
Family Counselor I (Former Employee) –  North CarolinaMarch 9, 2017
The work is rewarding and exciting. Helping the families is an experience that you must love. The MST training is priceless!! The weeks can be extremely busy and you're not compensated well enough for how much time it takes to see the clients and complete your documentation. Overall if you are in it for the experience and because you love what you do then you will absolutely love it.
Pros
Mileage and cell phone reimbursement
Cons
Number of hours required to complete documentation that you are not compensated for.

Run Run Run!
Transitional Living Specialist (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 7, 2017
Out of the 10+ years in the social service field this was the worst position I have had ever been in. Extremely high turnover rate due to the racist, unqualified, unorganized, biased, unprofessional management. Supervisors have no clinical experience and give workers unrealistic and at times unethical expectations. Home work life balance is non existent and you are not compensated for all the work you do. You are harassed and talked down to about paperwork and the ware and tear on your car is unbelievable. Do yourself a favor and RUN. Management lies and manipulates and makes up policy as they go. HR is a joke and does not support staff.
Pros
Co- workers
Cons
Everything

Intensive in home services
Family Intervention Specialist (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNFebruary 22, 2017
This work/home balance was difficult due to being on call throughout the week and some weekends, making the separation from work difficult at the end of the day. However, allows room for growth within the company.
