I worked at Youth Villages (More than a year)

Pros

My experiences with Youth Villages have been extremely challenging both personally, professionally but also rewarding.
The daily interactions with working with children will keep you young.

Cons

The hours and schedule of ANY position can be extremely stressful. The sixteen hour shifts on the weekend can really burn you out.

Advice to Management

Allow more breaks the job is very stressful.

    I have been working at Youth Villages full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The relationships I have built with my coworkers are positive, uplifting and long lasting. I also enjoy the work with my clients.

    Cons

    This job is like an abusive relationship. its tears you down and makes you feel like its your own fault. Then it gives you a slight glimpse of hope which makes you think things will change..and it doesn't. Stressful work environment, no help when trying to take vacations, not feeling comfortable to go to management with problems because you will get shamed or get talked to about "time management" which the company does not help you maintain, low pay, management plays favorites and only will invest in you if you drink the company cool aid.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and give them support. We work as a team for the betterment of these kids and their families. When the helpers feel helpless...what kind of impact are we supposed to have on other?

    Good experience for young college grads to put on their resume. Good professional development. Definitely looks good on paper.

    Low pay, little to no overtime pay depending on the position, they'll work you to death.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they're worth.
