If you have any ethics do not work here
Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 3, 2018
Dangerously misinformed Administrator made the San Francisco Healing Center both a dangerous and unethical place to work. They claim to offer DBT to the clients but there is nobody trained to facilitate. After the Program Director left everything collapsed. The patients no longer receive quality care, staff morale is low, and staff is constantly being injured. The Director of Operations acts like she cares but it’s really about the bottom line and staff safety is not a priority. Acuity level is much higher than what staff is trained for and the ratio of staff to client is far too high. It’s sad because this place could really do some wonderful things but as long as the cure Administrator is there things will only get more dangerous
Pros
Clients and direct care staff
Cons
Program director left and things went downhill fast, Administrator, lack of support, dangerous, high turnover

Administration
Recovery Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CAOctober 21, 2018
Admin was unprofessional at times. Absolutely no team work from Admin. They spoke rudely to employees. Admin was always pulling staff in asking if there is work gossip going on, had me puzzled. Admin does not care about your family life or obligations. Your schedule is constantly changing without notice. No cooler in the kitchen, cooking for 15 individuals sweating! Admin would take 2 to 3 hour lunches.
Pros
Its a job
Cons
A lot

Well compensated for frequently hazardous work, but vital training not always availablel
Rehabilitation Assistant (Former Employee) –  Carmichael, CASeptember 18, 2018
Working with clients with severe mental and physical illnesses and disabilities was often hazardous, and while you are well compensated for your work, vital on the job training is not always provided due to availability of upper management and often hectic environment. Left position for reasons unrelated to company and my rating is largely due to an unfortunately poor fit between myself and the type of work Crestwood does.
Pros
coworkers and a loving atmosphere centered on self care and then care of others
Cons
hazardous environment

High-paced, stressful, but rewarding place to work
Recovery Coach (Current Employee) –  Carmichael, CAAugust 28, 2018
Working here will mean you have a lot of responsibility, making sure your clients are okay, and helping meet their needs if their not. There's two facilities on campus: a Residential board and care, and a Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF). Each one has their varying levels of responsibility. The residential is a long-term care, 28 bed facility, where the staff handles everything from medication administration to washing the shower rooms. There are no nurses in this facility, as it's a non-medical facility. The PHF is a short-term care, 16 bed facility, with nurses, and it varies day to day with clients and how calm it is.
However, it's a very rewarding place to work at. You see clients come in and leave, having done a 180 degree turn from when they arrived.
Pros
Rewarding
Cons
Short lunch breaks

Working at Crestwood
Psychiatric Technician (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 25, 2018
I truly enjoyed my time working at this company. The management cares for their residents and staff with a true sense of respect. I left the company to go back to school full time, but I would not think twice about going back to work for them, even after all these years.

Project Facilitator/Instructor (Current Employee) –  Stockton, CAJuly 31, 2018
The directors and C level executives really make you feel apart of the "Crestwood Family" they actually care about their staff and make even the smallest role feel important.

More staff drama then work
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Redding, CAJuly 22, 2018
Was a warm body at this company. Reviews were another task on managements to do list and assessments were sloppy and not productive. Patients were unpredictable and kept on strict schedule.

happy camper
BOM (Current Employee) –  Fremont, CAJuly 19, 2018
I have been with Crestwood for 18 years I went from receptionist to payroll and now to office manager. so far it's been a pleasure but of course the down side of being with a company so long is that your wage is pretty low and California is not cheap.

Do not work here!
former employee (Former Employee) –  Kingsburg, CAJuly 14, 2018
If you would like to work for a place that is dangerous, always understaffed and the management could care less about you then look no further. Crestwood is the worst for helping people and more for putting more money in the directors pockets. They will make up "rules" that will best fit their needs and make their own hours maybe 4-6 a day and you'll rarely see them working. The main director is cheap and will see how much that he can get out of clients raising mini-mart prices that makes them obese. They sweep scandals under the rug and make sure to only promote people that tell on others, so they can get more information about the staff. If you plan to work here then prepare to be unhappy and be so stressed out that it could put you in a hospital.
Pros
The staff are nice
Cons
Management does not care about you safety or health

It is a Behavioral Health facility so incidents do happen but it is a fairly simple job. If you are a understanding person and open minded it maybe the place for you.

not important (Former Employee) –  not importantJune 1, 2018
All the locations with this company needs training, overall once that's done it will be an entirely different place to work so it will be more professional and ethical.

If you’re looking to reduce your moral and to be treated as if you’re worthless, you e come to the right pla e
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) –  Kingsburg, CAMay 31, 2018
This place is the worst of the worst. If the admin cared for their employees this place could really be turned around. The DON has no clue what is ever going on and never helps anyone. Program director treats staff like dirt, and likes to hire family as well as family friends. Has favorites and only favors those. Employees are regularly put into higher danger than needed, due to lack of care for staff.

Fresno bridge program
Rehab Assistant (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CAMay 15, 2018
Crestwood is great as a whole, but do not work at the fresno bridge location. Management should advocate wellness for their staff, but do not at all. Dont work here if you plan to keep your marriage or have children. Non understanding management. Clients are merely numbers.
Pros
Crestwood is a great company
Cons
Not the fresno bridge program
