Administrative staff (Current Employee) – AZ – April 18, 2018
SEABHS is a great place to work if you don't want to go anywhere other than the position you are in and don't want a raise. There may be benefits (health care, etc.) but no perks or extras. Every staff member wears many hats and works hard. The amount of PTO earned per year is great and you get most of the major holidays off. If you are comfortable making the same amount of money forever then this is the company to work for. Behavioral health is not a career you will be a millionaire at anyway but a little compensation would be good every now and then too.
There tends to be a lot of favoritism and hiring of some un-qualified staff then firing because they can't meet the criteria expected with out proper training as promised.
In our area this is a decent place to work income wise but not the best.

Great company that strives to give the best care to its clients in a field where it is so hard to meet all the requirements put upon them by the State and OBHS and other powers that be. Some great therapists work there and also the peer people and techs really try their best even when overwhelmed by the caseload numbers and the mounds of paperwork they must do. Just like in public education where it is impossible to just let teachers teach any more it is just about impossible to let the techs/therapists and other helping people really help anymore because of the paperwork /documentation that they must do. Seabhs employees do the best they can and really try to be there for all their clients the best they can. This is in every company, clinic, etc. these days.
Flexibility in seeing your clients in or outside of the office.
Hard to hear or converse on the phone when the room is filled with others doing their work, talking, fax and copy machine going all at the same time.
ADULT CASE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Willcox, Benson, Sierra Vista – May 1, 2014
I worked for SEABHS for seven years. Once CPSA was replaced as our RBHA by Cenpatico, the agency was just destroyed. We went from about 500 employees to about 125, and clients got hurt in the process. I am in my late 50s and expected to finish my career at SEABHS. I got laid off in 2011 and was lucky to find a job in Tucson, but the manner SEABHS handled letting so many people go was just atrocious.
What was once a great agency is just a shell of what once existed. I wouldn't work there now for any amount of money.
Poor morale, lack of leadership, lack of job security

Supervisors and favortisum for sure. You get hired to do one job, and end up doing 5 different ones. NO TRAINING provided. A lot of two-faced people, and no one will back you up if you have an issues. Also you be working a lot of un-paided over-time.
Landscaper (Current Employee) – Sierra Vista, AZ – November 16, 2013
We start normally around 530 in the morning during the summer and 630 during the fall. There's normally not too many hours available a normal work day consist of about 4-5 hours 3-4 days per week. The boss is fairly easy going. The job duties aren't really that difficult if I had to pick something difficult it would be digging in this Arizona dirt. Other than the job is fairly enjoyable .
Administrative Support (Former Employee) – September 2, 2011
Do not believe in any kind of pay raises. Supervisors like to play favorites. Discrimination with paying new hires more than employee with more years with organization. False accusations fly. Hiring Seriously Mentally ill classified clients to work in sensitive areas such as medical records & front desk, prompting questions of possible HIPPA violation. Corporate legal dept does not carry through with their obligations, laying burden of upmost importance on underlings at bottom of totem pole who don't have the legal expertise. Can not maintain appropriate staff for the service they provide.
