amazing shift culture, met my best friends, meaningful work, hiking, outdoors, if you want to be a therapist this is a great trial run as you work very closely with them, 6 days off between shifts to adventure!
shift work, 8 days on/6 days off, can get burned out, hard work, kids not always easy to work with

I enjoyed the overwhelmingly vast majority of people I worked with, and especially the serenity and beauty of nature
The pay is laughable. SUWS did not pay a living wage for Asheville. Their pay is based on Old Fort, a rural locality almost twenty miles from Asheville. I was subject to intense micromanagement, often. There is so much I would write about what I personally went through, and I've rewritten this so many times, that I'm just going to say simply: What I went through at SUWS caused severe trauma affecting all levels of my professional and personal life.
