I worked at Melmark

Pros

Melmark has an excellent reputation within the educational community. The work they do there is indispensable. You can get hired with little experience as long as you have a strong educational background or a strong desire to work with developmentally disabled people. Salary begins relatively high. Most employees and management are younger making it a possibility to move up quicker than other companies. Melmark is a great step up forward for your career.

Cons

Staff injury is a daily occurrence, if you can get over that there are still more cons to consider. If you work in Residential you have to work a double (7am-11pm) once a week, and it's usually Saturday or a Sunday. The staff tend to have cliques. If you aren't in the "in crowd" your day can be even more difficult. Counselors are expected to be very detailed and almost error-free, but the management is messy and disorganized themselves. Everybody is overworked.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please don't stop by for a visit, instead work a full shift or two to know what it's really like. Eliminate the doubles so we can do our job properly.
