I enjoyed working for the company but they closed down the division that i worked in.
Id Operations Manager Ii (Former Employee) – Bartlett, TN – January 24, 2019
My typical day consisted of ensuring that all clients finances were accurate and balanced in Quicken books. I ensured that all Employee's time was logged into the system weekly and approved them to forward on to Payroll.
Omni is a great place to work with foster children. They are very caring and nurturing to the children and families that work with the children. It is really enjoyable. I would say this is one of the best agencies to work for.

They advertise full time but you only get part time hours. They also have a funny payment system. I was told i was going to make 9.25 then after being hired I was told it was 8.25 + a dollar and all hours are not paid at the 9.25 rate.
Employee (Former Employee) – TN – January 15, 2019
Typical day at work. Early in the morning until late in the evening. If you're not a "pick" then consider being criticized on every aspect of the job. Don't worry about asking questions...they won't be answered. Training usually consists of a "read this email", attend this online presentation (usually given by someone who has been in the field forever and talks way above a new hire's head), and watch some videos with quizzes. The hardest part of the job is actually fitting in. If you don't know their language, then don't expect to learn it. Not really a "family" as they describe it. Prepare yourself to be discouraged and extremely tired. Best thing about the job is helping clients.
I obtained invaluable experience working as a clinical therapist, and will take this with me where ever my path leads in the mental health industry. Overall am satisfied with supervision, and staff's supportive attitudes. The minus was that we had to provide our own computers, and well my imac's drive did die out. However no complaints other than that. My experience like I said was invaluable.
Free phizer lunches
No breaks, provide your own computer and office supplies
Therapist (Current Employee) – TN – December 4, 2018
No support for accomplishment. Only comment on the negative and plenty of criticism. Horrible expectations on top of a ridiculously high case load. Supervision is sketchy at best communication is also spotty.
Great place to work.. Supportive coworkers and management. It is very challenging to work with children and families that have faced such abuse, so if you have your own issues, probably not the best place for you to work. It is alot of paperwork, but that is to be expected. They do fun activities and promote self care. They are great advocates for their kids and families.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – October 11, 2018
I felt micromanaged and rarely felt like the company cared about or valued me as an employee. I felt management was not attentive. There was no sense of teamwork. Hardest part was finding respite for the foster parents. Company tried growing too quickly and did not focus on their strengths.
A typical work day is busy. I learned about children, families, and trauma. No comment about management. The hardest part of the job is the atmosphere. The most enjoyable part is serving children and families.
I have spent the last few years at this company. I would have to say that the culture of this agency is very fast-paced but it also has a lot of opportunity for young professionals. I approve this as a great workplace to be.
