    I have been working at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The individuals are amazing and the environment can be fun!

    Cons

    Staff turnover rate is high, there are mostly college students so it makes sense. There isn't much room to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please actually enforce protocol! It is important when caring for people that the right staff work with them. Also be open to employee ideas!

    Residential Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health (Broomfield, CO) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and was contacted for an interview within a few days. The first interview is one on one. Then you are invited back for a one hour observation and peer interview (unpaid). Afternoon and evening shifts for full time is 36 hours. Overnights are 40 hours. I received a call within a couple of days with an offer. It's 14.50 per hour whether you have a college degree or not. The person I was shadowing told me she had her nose broken by a client a few weeks ago. $14.50 is not enough for all the residential counselors have to deal with.
