When I first started I was warned by fellow coworkers about supervision and how the agency runs... I didn’t believe them at first but I quickly learned. Supervisors are self involved and don’t care about their employees, or even their employees clients. Supervison doesn’t listen to concerns or try and come up with solutions...HUGE safety concerns left not dealt with. Was told to not contact APS on a woman with severe dementia living without water or electric. They will leave new social workers dealing situations that aren’t safe for their clients and won’t give any direction on how to handle it. If someone (coworker, person in the community) gets upset with you, supervison will never back you up and will claim you never came to them about the situation, even when you did and they just ignored you. Not enough time to get everything done. Supervisors play favorite and if you’re not a favorite, good luck. Unrealistic expectations regarding caseloads and paperwork. If you’re looking to be a SC, go to moka, pine rest, or hope network. Their caseloadss are 5-8 people less than thresholds. This agency was literally so bad for my mental health and I regret working here. Awful management, awful working conditions.. for little pay. Run far, far, away.
