    I worked at Wolverine Human Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wolverine Services was one of the better companies I've ever worked for.
    Training was on going, results were often immediate. Pay was far better than surrounding business or job offerings. Supervisors were approachable, and when sudden crushes in work needs appeared, help was often on the way. It was hard to fail working for Wolverine and they gave everyone a fair chance.

    Cons

    The only downside to Wolverine was that when production was low, I was laid off.
    I was last hired, so first let go made perfect sense.
    I would go back again in a heartbeat.

    Advice to Management

    Management had years of experience and kept us informed of their needs regularly.
    My only comment is that they might not forget me, I am very willing to come back.
    More like family there than co workers.

    Youth Care Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wolverine Human Services (Detroit, MI) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for a position online Friday and had a voicemail from HR the following Monday. I was scheduled for an interview the following week. The Program Manager and Residential Care Coordinator both interviewed me. Interview process was easy I knew I had the job about 5 minutes into it. They offered me a position and I accepted. I eventually left for a better opportunity after about a year. The work environment is very clique-ish and the kids can be emotionally exhausting. I feel I did help a lot of youth I encountered, but very many of them have no interest in changing for the better. Wolverine is very good for Social Work experience if that is your field. Definitely a stepping stone job; not a career builder by any means. Pay is very low, but the benefits are actually reasonable and pretty good. It is what you make it honestly.
