Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Fairbanks, AK – October 5, 2017
There are favorites. The consumer is not the most important focus. Upper management created hostile environment daily. Their business practices speak of no retaliation. Nonetheless, when a staff raised concerns or expressed grievances to managers, they are written up or fired.
Great work with consumers but treat there staff poorly
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – Varied – July 12, 2017
They have great programs and very dedicated staff for those that can stick around. The management has terrible communication and you feel like you have to walk on eggshells. I loved the people I worked with as we all worked hard to help the consumers succeed . Upper management communicates poorly and does not treat everyone equally. They will keep wanting more out of you and only let you know what you did wrong. Upper management is not very user friendly and in some cases not qualified to supervise the staff they hire.
Great insurance, flexibility, very dedicated staff
Poor upper management communication, high employee turnaround, don't follow their own P and P.
Residential Aide (Current Employee) – Fairbanks, AK – March 23, 2017
FNA is a great place to work if you are a well diversed kind of individual that likes helping others. The staff is well rounded and knowledgeable and is willing to assist in your training. The consumers are come with high hopes that the company is what they need to assist in their needs.
Low Morale, Inconsistent and unfair management practices
Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Residential Aid (Former Employee) – Fairbanks, AK – December 2, 2016
During my time with FNA, I saw favoritism toward clients and employees, and what I felt was too much supervisors' discretionary decisions regarding employee termination and other discipline resulting in lower employee morale.
When I first started, I was excited about helping people who were trying to change their lives for the better.
There were questions about policies, and policies vaguely defined if at all, sometimes terminations came after little or no previous warning, and inconsistently enforced policies and procedures.
The chance to help people trying to change their life, to make a difference.
