Nepotism, Unethical, Incompetent Management, Unrewarding
Administration, Accounting (Former Employee) – Kingston, NY – September 10, 2018
The same tired people have been employed there for many years.
I pity those who are stuck in Residential.
Gateway remains a refuge for staff with mental and emotional illnesses who have risen to the level of their incompetence.
Unfortunately, this unhealthy culture will turn many new employees there back to Indeed . com for a less sick atmosphere.
Perhaps not Gateway's fault but staff not equipped to handle serious residential issues. Could be a dearth of funding or a delusional board of directors infected by typical small town crony-ism.
The turnover in Residential is very high.
Residential Counselors sit on their butts, eat, and smoke.
Residential Administration is bereft of competence.
The poor residents they "serve" would be better off living in a homeless shelter or dare I say, out on the streets. Really!
If you have few skills and little training, aim low or are desperate for employment - this place would be perfect for you.
Those in Administration (90% aged women) need to be clients rather than staff.
To be fair there are a few good people there, but avoid the following:
Anything related to vocational support. (Employment specialists).
Anything related to residential. (They will literally rob the residents, and I'm referring to administration, not the residential counselors.)
Anything related to Food Service, PROS, Create or any mental health clinical services.
This place makes the Trump White House look like a thing of beauty in comparison. (OK, slight exaggeration.)
Great place if you like to smoke, complain and are a woman over 50
Intense nepotism, seriously underfunded, incompetent management
