    Pros

    You get a solid work experience when you interact and work with the clients. There is a ton of verbal escalation practice with all the clients that get close to assaulting each other or assaulting the staff. The benefits would be great as well.....if you didn't get shafted in your first six months. The training itself is also a valuable tool, that brings you back to college or high school where you must have X amount of credits/courses in order to continue.

    Cons

    If you are in any way whatsoever Military Leadership, do not work here. Management will force you to decide to pick your job or those soldiers that are under you. If you do pick your soldiers when problems arise, management here will harp on you and you will get in trouble. The management is so far gone from being any bit united that the workers in the residential houses do not feel the effects of "red flag" meetings called on by the executives. The management also fails in assuring your personal physical safety from physically aggressive clients. I could go on from being in a leadership position myself, but needless to say, maybe the only assured thing about this job is that there will be a verbal or physical fight every time you go in for your shift.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page, if you say you're going to say something, then follow up on that promise and commit to your employees. If the person you're interviewing with harps on having to be compliant with military obligations related to the officer/NCO rank, then you actually listen and not force them to decide whether to choose the soldier or the company. The soldier will always come first before the company and forcing employees to make that decision is a bit rediculous when you assure them that you will be compliant.
