This job is not the good will you hope it to be

Youth Service Professional (Former Employee) Ames, IA

ProsHealth benefits exist but they are not as strong as they should be.

ConsMany life threatening situations.
Very little real support from above management.
Company policies do not match their practices
Floor workers are forced to cut corners due to low staffing and way too many children to watch.
You will get hurt both emotionally and physically at this job by the children you support.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic with the work load you put on floor staff.
The set up of the Beloit campus is terrible for rehabilitation. It offers far to much opportunity for things to go wrong.
Provide staff with more in depth training that actually matches the tough problems that staff face on the floor.
Counseling NEEDS to be provided for staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
