Lack of respect for employees
Youth Counselor (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 4, 2017
Tennyson and I started on a shaky foot. They jerked me around for a month before offering me a job (I was not working so this was very stressful, though I was willing and responsive). Once hired, I found the staff on my same level were typically rude, cliquey, and immature.
I kept at it and worked hard, with a lack of help from management. I was in several dangerous situations with youth that were preventable if management was more responsive. After months of work, I pursued another position at Tennyson with better hours, which I was denied (they wanted to go with an outside hire, as my off hours would be more difficult to fill). At this point, I put in my two weeks. Management scrambled and offered me the position I had inquired about. However, I declined this offer. I was very disappointed in the agency, and unimpressed with their responsiveness to critical situations.
