Never. Phoenix House is top
Heavy as far as Management but actually workers there are no increases unless
you threaten to leave.
How did you feel about telling people you worked at Phoenix House of the Mid Atlantic?
I love the interactions with clients. Many are very needed but that is the nature of their illness. Management lacks knowledge and skills to appropriately mange staff. You will work hard and not be compensated for your time if you are an exempt employee. Ask questions.
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Phoenix House of the Mid Atlantic?
Read between the lines in interview the picture painted may not be what you get. (/other duties as assigned)
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Phoenix House of the Mid Atlantic a better place to work?
Hire more experienced employees because the majority of Phoenix House Counseling Center staff were still in school a couple of years ago. In my opinion not experienced enough to understand the life or death urgency of the work.
What is the most stressful part about working at Phoenix House of the Mid Atlantic?
Working with inexperienced staff who feel their academic credentials equals being a expert.
Working with a client who is really willing to try something new. Because most have been using the same basic approach to trying to recover for years and getting nowhere claiming treatment or 12 step recovery doesn't work for them.
