    I have been working at Gulf Coast Trade Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great experience in the social service non profit field. Opportunities are plentiful for young professionals in education, counseling, case management and vocational training.

    Cons

    difficult population so you must be fully committed. Entry level positions are stressful but can be rewarding for the right person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Gulf Coast Trade Center full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The training was adequate. I enjoyed working with the youths and felt my role was critical in their release back into society. The environment was an optimal work environment. Great job to have during college.

    Cons

    The supervisors were not qualified in my opinion. Other than that it was a great place to work. Working with troubled youths can be difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a residential staff supervisor that has adequate qualifications.

    Pros

    Steady check, benefits, u make a diffrence in kids lives, can be laidback at times.

    Cons

    Midmanagement is incompetent; has a go along to get along feel. Does not teach kids responsility or dislipline as advertised

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen to your group workers, remove the corruption from midmanagement, dislipine the kids like your supposed to. As an employee i felt like if I complained about a situation/person then there was enough corruption to get me removed. The employees feel like they are the ones with criminal record not the kids who are sent by authorities
