    I have been working at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare (more than a year)

    Pros

    Talented, dedicated, hard-working staff (line-staff to leadership). Very difficult work done by people who really care about our clients, the community and each other. Able to navigate growing pains thoughtfully. Cascadia is like a little town, with a variety of personalities, cultures and experience and it is inspiring to be part of a community, like Cascadia, that doesn't shy away from difficult situations or opportunities to grow intrinsically. I would say that the people of Cascadia are the kind of people who WILL make the world a better place. In fact, Cascadians ARE making the world a better place! Leaders value all staff and are working hard to make sure each and every Cascadian feels it!

    Cons

    My cons are about society not providing enough funding and compassion to organizations like Cascadia who are on the front line working to improve individual lives of people suffering from mental illness and/or addiction and in doing so, Cascadia is strengthening the community. I find it appalling that groups like Cascadia and its community partners have to chase the same money leaving someone unable to provide necessary services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep enhancing/strengthening communication (its making a difference!), keep focused on equity and inclusion (it matters, its relevant and we're grateful for this work), keep visiting sites and getting to know staff (we feel great when we see you!)... keep being innovative and courageous!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by nurse supervisor. She remembered me from high school! We attended the same High School, though at the time were not friends. She messaged me on Facebook after noticing I'd applied to Cascadia. Next thing I knew we were chatting on phone, then there I was at a real interview! It was a pleasant interview experience.

    Interview Questions
    • None, really quite easy / very nice supervisor, majority of interview was spent describing their approach to the care of clients in a secure residential setting. She asked about my flexibility, experience. Really very easy interview compared to others. It took about two months to get the actual job offer though. I think they had problems reaching a couple of my references. I interviewed in August, was offered a job in October (?) Then started employment on November 18th.   Answer Question
