Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 29, 2018
A typical day is making sure the clients getting their welfares met. Working for this employer I learned to listen more about what is important to the clients. The management is well organized and like for staff to be educated;and for the workplace culture always younger or middle age adults that's attending college or have completed a higher education. Sometimes working with people with different languages can be one of the hardest thing on the job. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping the clients out and getting days off when you need.

Train and ensure that the Behavioral Health Technicians (BHT), Behavioral Health Paraprofessionals (BHPP) provide accurate assessments, documentation, direction and consultation to component program staff (BHPP) relative to clinical and treatment service delivery
Have no lunch breaks, can not trust Staff or upper managements
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 30, 2016
Typical day is very busy. Being in the position of Program Manager, is not what they have trained you as. You have no say so in your position. You have to follow what the Clinician's advise in a situation that has the ability of being dangerous. Who is not there to witness what is going on. Co-worker are afraid to do their jobs because of this. They are afraid to do anything to assist the clients. The hardest part of the job, is to keep Clients safe from other Clients. The best part of the job is getting to know the Clients.
Human Resource and Organizational Design Intern (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 22, 2016
Great internship I did during the summer of 2012. My boss was amazing and they even started paying me (for an unpaid internship) after my first few weeks. The office is kind of mundane and most of the time everyone is in their office with the door closed and the 8 hour day can feel like an eternity. The work isn't too difficult however and you get a lot of freedom to pursue the projects you find interesting.
Clinical Coordinator (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 9, 2016
Pros: quick advancement provided work experience and education, company is small enough that company structure frequently changes (which may be a pro or a con depending upon your adaptability). The upper management is supportive.
Cons: For profit company, poor pay for direct care staff (i.e. less than $10/hour), quality of direct care services may be abysmal due to low-education and qualifications of staff, high turn-over among direct care staff. Quality of management varies. Clinical services are based upon a behavioral management philosophy dating to the 1960s (outdated). Quality of clinical staff/services vary.
AHCCMS would be a better place to work if the wages were higher.
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 23, 2015
My experience at AHCCMS had it ups and downs. There was frequent times where staff had to work double shifts because the programs were under staffed. The hours were sometimes a necessary blessing due to the pay rate.
Manager, Clinical Quality Management (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 12, 2015
No Comment to make. My mother told me when I was young if I didn't have anything nice to say I should keep it to myself. Therefore I'm only writing this to meet the minimum requirements in order to move on the the next step.
Very nice accomodations, with TV, Stereo,spacious back yard and a Van for transporting the Clients
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 14, 2015
Fast pace, very involved with the clients, great deal of paper work, daily Wellness Groups, Monthly Staffing, PCP Appointments as well as Psyche Doctors’ Appointments
I have learn that you need great deal of patience to succeed in this type of environment and the importance of proper documentation.
I have always had the support of my Management Team this was indicative when I was chosen the Employee of the Year 2013 and have been able to manage the employees I supervise.
When the word Co-Workers come in mind the first thing I think about is TEAM WORK. Having a good relationship with your Co-Workers is key to having success.
The hardest part of the job is to get 1 or 2 employees to understand that a client does some of the things they do because of their mental illness. Some employees feel that some clients with SMI have control of the things they do 95 percent of the time. Sometimes there are employees lose sight of why we are here in this business.
The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing clients step down and work towards being independent, being able to live own their own.
