Negative experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsIf you are a desperate for a job, YV is always hiring because of their extremely high turnover rate. And that is pretty much the only "pro"...

ConsLow salary, long hours, and total lack of appreciation from management. Clinical staff earn almost nothing. Senior officers and directors openly acknowledge that clinical staff are replaceable and completely dispensable.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay employees a decent wage. Show some respect for the hundreds of employees who interact with the kids and their families!

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