Institution with Shift Work - rewarding if looking to see youth grow into adults
Senior Group Supervisor (Former Employee) – Nevada City, CA – August 7, 2014
Shift work is long and tough, with 12 hour shifts. These lead to longer weekends, which is well worth the extra hours in a day. You are in the institution, following a set schedule, side by side with the youth. The training is constant and extensive. The management is generally looking for the well being of the youth and the safety and security of the institution. The hardest part of the job is when the youth "act out" due to their personal life complications. Rarely do the youth act out due to the staff, but rather after conversations with family and loved ones. The best part of the job is when you reach a youth and build that connection that leads to them thinking positively about their future and growing as a person.
