A good start up job when you come out of college in the Early Educational filed. Not a place to stay long term. Management does not know what they are doing.

Sad to see they tore down the lighthouse. It was an awesome place for the locals and will be greatly missed. I met so many great people and friends while working there.

The owner cares about her employee's and is very flexible with their schedules for school, etc.

She recognizes hard work and rewards in different ways for the hard work.

working with kids is fun and exciting being able to see them smile after a day full of fun is the most rewarding thing a person can ever feel. Someday was hard to keep track of students but over all it was very much rewarding
Pros
Trips for kids
Cons
there really wasn't much breaks

I've been with the company for sometime and they dont really look out for loyal employees. There is not a lot of reasons to stay with the company. Only reason I stayed so long is for the clients. No pay increases for loyalty.

I would cook for 60 to 80 people a day for breakfast lunch and dinner. I would have to make the decision of what to make including deserts. I absolutely loved my job

I’d rather not go back to that job.

I would just rather not talk about it. When your good your not good enough and when you start to slip there’s the door.

Let me go for no reason and very fake owners. I have been a bartender for 20 years and had regular costumers every night I work it wasn’t appreciated and also paid bartender 2.13 hour. GM made 15.00 a hour. Just sad! Take care of your good and you’ll make good is what I say.

I was an ok place to work. There was a lot of people that took to many cigarette breaks and they would complain about the hours. I enjoyed that I was alone in my own office to work.
Cons
short breaks

I was treated unfairly by the senior staff. I was told that I had violated a policy when I was terminated. I was not liked by the senior staff I did not like working for this company by the way I was treated by the other staff.

The main goal was to take care of clients and make sure they were comfortable. You need to be organized and be able to act quickly. You need to be one step ahead of the clients.
Pros
Free lunches, dinners

This is a BRS facility so the clients are children with developmental disabilities that are supposed to be getting help to learn how to function at a less restrictive placement. I felt as though we were only housing the kids and not doing well enough at preparing them for a real life. There is a small number of clients that could be called success stories and the rest of the kids tend to increase their negative behaviors instead of decreasing and replacing their negative behaviors. The pay is also low.

AN IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION: BRS facilities are contracted through the state and get all of their funding from the state. These facilities could be run much more effectively if they were better funded. Clients would make much better progress if they had better training and were better educated on how to deal with some of the clients' behaviors.
Pros
Free meals when eating with clients; depending on the shift, you are not likely to have a boss looking over your shoulder
Cons
You must break the law to take a break because being out of ratio with clients, Management will move you to houses with clients you are unfamiliar with, You are assaulted by youth on an almost daily basis
