Youth Specialist in Detroit, MI
on January 22, 2021
A lot of hours of looking for a big check. Staff was fun to work with. Mandatory shifts was not cool. Sometimes I had to work 16 hours on the last day of the week.

Make sure you build good rapport with the kids, get to know them, gain their trust, give them advice, and show them that you care and you will be good, but correct the kids when they are wrong. Be prepared to physically manage the kids , they will attack you or their peers when they get mad. The staff gossip too much, so stay out the drama if you can. The good things about DBI : you get paid time in a half on holidays must work day before and after, sometimes you have easy days and other days are hard depending on what kind of mood the kids are in, sometimes DBI brings in catered food for the staff on holidays, good overtime.Cons at DBI: high turn over rate, un professional staff, mandation- sometimes you want to go home and get tired of the same staff calling off\ same shift calling off and at time you want to go home at the end of your 8 hour shift, kids are rude, they will hit you, spit on you, throw their feces and urine at you. 30 minute lunches- feel like 15 minute break. Not able to go to the bathroom when you need to due to shortage of staff.

You gotta be expectant of everything. Floor employees tend to be messy and tell the residents your business. Otherwise a decent place to work if you have a thick skin.
Direct Care Worker in Detroit, MI
on March 26, 2020
You are required to do mandatory over time however, it is not when your want to only when your told to do so. You are not given the opportunity to make arrangements with your outside life. Your not allowed to leave unless you have coverage which is not often. Something as simple as going to the restroom or even going eating lunch seems to be a priveledge. You are not allowed to have cell phones on the floor and family is not allowed to call the facility. There are 8 hour shifts however, out of a seven day work week you will have to work 16 hours at least 2-3 times out of the week.

High Staff turnover. Staff to client ratio is too high. Excessive. No room for growth or promotion. Residents are not being rehabilitated. No committment.
