    Coworkers are awesome, but caseload was too big

    I worked at Centre For Neuro Skills full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Coworkers (at the therapist, aide, and NRS level) are awesome and come to work everyday wanting to help people
    -Patients are awesome. If you want to make a difference in people's lives it's great because you get to spend so much time with the patients and get to know them. So, this can be incredibly rewarding.
    -I felt like the compensation was good
    -Most people there really do want a make a difference and help people, so they work really hard to be creative to get the patient's needs met within the limitations of their insurance coverage

    Cons

    -When you get up to case manager level and above it's a little hit or miss... some of them are helpful but generally they don't provide great support
    -When you bring up concerns you'll generally just hear that "well, this is the way we've always done it" or they just say "too bad"
    -Training is disorganized and not very helpful in dealing with this population. You spend a lot of time watching videos and reading things that aren't very helpful when you're actually working with a live patient
    -They admit way more patients than the current staff can safely supervise. A group of patients can be left under minimal supervision if several staff members are needed to take one patient to the bathroom or deal with a behavioral issue. One-on-one therapy is practically unheard of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management really does want to make a difference and help patients, but you can't spread your staff as thin as you do.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Centre For Neuro Skills in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Basically you send in your resume or go into the office and ask for application. You get a job description and fill out the packet. If they like you they'll call you back for an over the phone interview and then schedule you from there for a one on one interview. If they don't want to hire you they send a postcard home thanking you for applying. After you pass the interviews they will contact you to go to a clinic to get your drug test and physical. They will pay for it. If all goes well your schedule for orientation.

    Negotiation Details
    They will ask you basic questions about why you want to work here and how are you getting to work. The general questions every job asks during an interview. Dress up nicely and appear professional. Be enthusiastic and friendly. of course.
