Hugely rewarding job, very little pay.
Mental Health Technician (MHT) (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – July 8, 2018
I do love being part of a change for the clients and seeing the difference that I can make in their lives, and that is something that I wouldn't trade for anything. While the job isn't physically demanding it is very mentally demanding between the clients and coworkers, and the pay is laughable. I enjoy my job but honestly it isn't the greatest work environment. It's like being back in high school with how much everybody, including supervisors, constantly talks about everybody else, and how much things get twisted and spread around. There is definite favoritism and the rules don't seem to apply to everyone equally. There have been numerous incidents of harassment that have gone unaddressed, despite supervisor's knowledge. There are a few strong techs that carry the shift and get reprimanded often while the deadweight cruises by without any consequence.
