I have been working at Hazelden full-time for more than a year

Pros

Despite a few layoffs, Hazelden feels very stable. They are diversified with locations all over the US and have a publishing company. Decent company matching retirement contribution. Opportunity for advancement if you are willing to embrace change and take on extra work.

Cons

Remote location far from the Twin Cities. Many employees live nearby and not many other employment options in this rural area means some of the workforce is stagnant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more integration and collaboration between publishing and treatment facility.

    I have been working at Hazelden full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful grounds in natural setting.

    Cons

    When I started at Hazelden they had done some major changes in scheduling that now never allows nurses to have a wk end off without using PTO. Staff who had worked there for many years were sobbing and some were irate. Many have quit and it seems that there is still a very poor attitude with constant staff turn over. Nursing department is dysfunctional. Very heavy workload with poor support from management. Lying is routine. Poor leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house of current nursing management. Develop integrity.

    I worked at Hazelden full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Their mission statement to help those with addictions or other issues is commendable. Their success rate is pretty good for the residents.

    Cons

    Not cohesive between many of the staff. You have to watch your back so that others don't try to have you fired. Many have been fired on made up accusations. The environment does not encourage positive input. There is much wasted time (and therefore of money) on unimportant tasks. Good people leave the company and nothing is done about it. Going up the line of authority is a joke. The accommodations are that of a Motel 6. Penny pinching on many needs of the Residents as well as the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone has worked there for many years does not mean they know what they're doing. Turning a blind eye to the mistreatment of employees is never good. Complaints to upper management were ignored.
