    I have been working at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you love people, psychology and learning this is the place to be, when you need help Management actually listens to you, Tip: Make SURE you choose a Residential or Admin position, you get Healthcare/Dental/Vision/Free bus pass if you work downtown, PTO is generous, about 2 days a month paid vacation, Culture is great, Swing shift is pretty decent. Overtime pays extra and you can get plenty of it. Clients are good people and you really feel like you are helping make the world a better place here.

    Cons

    Lack of raises for good employees. Little to no potential to move up. You get the same exact raises as the crummy ones! You have to be LOUD and active to get management to make changes. They won't do it if you're too quiet but they actually will do it unlike some places...

    Advice to Management

    Give raises based on PERFORMANCE!

    Why do you bother with an annual performance review if there's little opportunity to move up and ZERO opportunity to get a raise? It is so embarrassing to sit there in your performance review, being told you're a great employee without receiving a raise. Even a small one would be better than these random raises. Good employees don't like random. Lazy employees like random unearned raises. Which would you rather keep around??
    If you don't want to be just a place where people get training and leave, you have got to put your money where your mouth is and reward people who STAY and people who PERFORM well!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare (Gresham, OR) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Took awhile for management to get back to me on my application, about a month and a half delay before hearing any word. Manager and supervisor both interviewed me at the same time. The first thing that was said to me was to "relax, because she wasn't looking to drill me about my past or anything, just wanted to see what I could bring to the team". Interview was very open and friendly, with laughing and an overall good feeling vibe.
