Best direct care experience you could hope for
Mental Health Technician (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – November 13, 2018
If you're passionate about mental health, are driven to serve others and thrive on self-motivation, this is a good job for you. This is not the job for everyone, but don't let the negative reviews scare you off too much. The overall atmosphere here is good, and the experience you gain is excellent. There are some problems with rude coworkers, but this is worse at the Adult campus (old building). The biggest complaints I have surround co-worker situations.
When you're new here, you get the side-eye a lot. The environment can feel pretty cliquey at times. The children's hospital, except for a few bad eggs, is staffed with some saints of human beings. Some of the nurses lack empathy for the patients. This place employs some of the kindest techs you will ever meet, but the overall atmosphere at the Adult hospital is pretty cutthroat and unpleasant among coworkers. I see a lot of complaints about management, but the management isn't the problem. The problem is staff who feels they're entitled to call out last minute, leaving management to scramble to find replacements asap. This is a job meant to serve others, not yourself.
Over-all, I really love my work here and I hope tok stay here for years to come.
Rewarding, fun and fast-paced atmosphere
Rude coworkers, short breaks, pay does not fit job expectations
