Working here is like being in a prison. No phones, Ipads, or laptops any electronics of any kind. Just sit there board out of your mind waiting for restraint and behavior drama too happen.. then you have to pursue AWOL youth and do restraints holds for 8 hours a day. You get tired, sweaty, and worn down. Don’t expect any lunch breaks or even time to use the bathrooom. There won’t be any. And if you call for assistance because it's unsafe situation escalating, you get heavily frowned upon. Then you will see your rating on your yearly evaluation plummet for “not being able to problem solve effectively.” (As your basically dumped in a room all by yourself for 6, 7 hours a day unsafely out of ratio with 9 unruly kids fighting each othe,r, breaking property, going AWOL.) It doesn’t surprise me The Village has a very high turnover rate. What can you expect? They burn staff out with their prison-like policies which don’t work. And they create too many rules which basically binds staff’s hands and keeps them tied from being able to maintain control over the milieu. The administration here is a total joke. The job was an even bigger one.
clocking out, eventually quitting
everything else, especially the higher up admin people
