Doesn't Appreciate Long-Time Employees or Military Reservists
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Grove City, OH – December 12, 2018
I worked for The Buckeye Ranch for 15 years. Outside of my time working at The Buckeye Ranch, I served in the U.S. Army Reserve and the Ohio Air National Guard. During my time as a Buckeye Ranch employee, I was called to active duty and deployed several times to Iraq and Afghanistan. Back then, I would say The Buckeye Ranch was supportive of the military, but I can't say the same about it now. Soon after returning from a deployment to Afghanistan, I left The Buckeye Ranch to advance my career. I left after providing notice and working out that notice. When I later wanted to return to The Buckeye Ranch, I was informed I was ineligible for rehire. That was hard to imagine how that could be considering I left on what I thought were good terms, received only positive reviews, and never received any corrective action. Interestingly, my old supervisor mentioned my constantly leaving and coming back to The Buckeye Ranch....as if it was a problem!?!? All those times I left and came back to The Buckeye Ranch were for MILITARY SERVICE and are protected under USERRA. On the good side of things, that supervisor has since retired and the CEO who allowed that particular supervisor to prevent me from returning is leaving The Buckeye Ranch. So, hopefully, there will be better leadership who appreciate long-time employees and the military.
Extremely high turnover; too many people with MSW's in leadership positions, which is great for social work, but not leading an organization such as TBR
