I have been working at Center for Discovery as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Lots of hours per diem
Very laid back
locations all over

Cons

Very high turn over
No room for advancement
Pay is awful

I have been here for 2 years (still employed) as an on call staff member. It was a good place when I was in school because I could work when I wanted to. After I graduated I was expecting to be hired on full time, or at least on call in my field of study (as i was told).

The problem is since I have been with the company (2 years) I have seen 18 members of the mgmt team leave. Which means the person who promised me a position after I graduated is long gone. After some back and forth with the new staff I was able to work the the capacity of what I went to school for (nursing) but they wanted to keep me at my same pay rate ($12) yeah, I don't think so. I was not even able to get a raise and I have been here 2 years.

The only reason I stick around it because working the night shift is super easy and not much work is involved. They continue to ask me to work nursing shift or a day shift but I refuse. But for $12 an hour at night to do nothing, sure I will stick around.

This is the type of company that will use and take advantage of you if you let them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your people what they are worth and good people will stick around

    Pros

    Loved working with the clients and some of the staff were great.

    Cons

    Management is disorganized and had an unfair expectation of what a staff member should be doing.
    Kept terrible staff members even though they weren't doing their jobs while firing staff that were going above and beyond. Terrible, just terrible!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a management class! Appreciate the good ones and get rid of the trash!
