I was hired with YV as a recent college graduate 3 months ago. If you think that you are going to get out right on time everyday with a bachelors degree in Psychology, you better go back to school and get a business degree. Working until 12:30AM putting shift notes in because a child held needed to deescalate with you because you are their preferred staff is something that you learn to live for. Although, YVGL is shutting down, it was the best experience that I have had. If you're not ready to spend time in the staff office until 12:30/1:00AM doing shift notes because a child needed you that night, get another degree. The overtime pay in this field is what makes every second count. At YV, every second counts and you do not go unpaid.
