This is not the place to be if you want to go into mental health or healthcare. The way things are ran isn’t reflective of what a work place should be, let alone healthcare. Staff is constantly quitting and being fired because fellow staff will backstab and gossip about each other. The hours may exceed 18hrs a day, and the rules for both employees and clients are ridiculous. Most staff are young, catty, and unprofessional. There’s no consistency in the rules, and management is just as, if not more cliquey as the 20 year old staff members. There’s absolutely no real training, and many of the staff aren’t even certified for restraints or cpr certified. The “team leads” fuel drama within the company, and if you’re not in good graces with them, they will ensure that you are fired.
The “trainings” are a joke, and don’t really prepare or help you with anything close to what it’s actually like.
If the house directors like you, you will get away with almost anything. I have witnessed staff openly gossiping about other staff members in front of clients, and no one batting an eye. Staff is disposable to management and will fire over everything and anything, ESPECIALLY if you don’t “fit in”. Run as far and fast as you can from this dumpster fire.
Absolutely everything else
