Cashier (Former Employee) – Hot Springs, SD – November 14, 2018
They really need to update their system, along with security at night because I was the only one working during graveyard and the area had many angry customers that get physical because of their intoxication. I was definitely not paid enough because I couldn't even afford 100 rent plus 50 electric on good days IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER IN SD.
Long hours, Police regularly called, intoxicated customers, old system that really needs to be updated, hours are very inconsistent so you never know when you are going to work.
Ok place to work if you just need a job and know how to do the work

Definitely not a work place to invest ones future in owner too cheap doesn’t compensate properly for experienced,reliable help .To retain good help in today’s workplace an employer must compensate their employees accordingly if he or she is a proven professional

Nice place to work. Customers for the most part polite. Job not so had collet is cold.the boss was very nice . Helped me with problems or any things I couldn't handle. The other employees were very helpful.
Fresh Start was not a favorable place for me to work.
Counselor (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – September 12, 2018
It did not offer any incentives for me because i did weekends as a monitored. I worked during the week as an Intern. Fresh Start did not offer any kind of advancement opportunities. A typical day was co facilitating group sessions. The hardest part of my job was dealing with disgruntle clients. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping clients learn tools to stay sober.
Fresh Start provided three meals per day to clients.
The facility did not offer any kind of recreational activities for clients.

Fresh Start is a well organized drug and alcohol treatment facility. It is small only holding 8 clients at a time which allows for a very intimate experience and personalized client care. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable on the job, medication and patience it takes when working with clients coming off substances.

A tippical day at fresh start was amazing you would learn new things about maintance and how to organize work orders in ways i didnt know before working at fresh start. I would recommend fresh start to everybody who is looking to be in a working environment that not only helps you learn every day but also challenges you in a good way.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Hot Springs, SD and edgemont sd – February 8, 2018
If your just a regular employee paid by the hour it's great buy once I became a salary paid employee I was over worked and way under paid I loved working there though it was hard but it was great skills to learn the people are great the experience was amazing I would do it all over again just not on salary
Cashier (Former Employee) – Pierre, SD – January 22, 2018
The manager that I had was not management material. He always had/has favorites. If your not one of his favorites you had to pick up the slack of his favorites, they didn't have to do anything but run the till, they didn't have to clean or maintain the store that was all pushed off on the people who are not his favorites.
