    Pros

    4 day work weeks with option to pick up additional days.

    Challenging but rewarding if youth is open to change

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Having break through moments with clients and supporting them along their journey... if they are open to it. -The support for, most, other Frontline staff. -Building rapport with clients -being there for the clients through thick and thin. -Making the clients laugh or smile.

    Cons

    -There are some clicks that form with staff. If you are not in with them, they can stir the pot, so to say. -The clients can sometimes become aggressive and attack staff/clients or do minor/major property destruction. - Favoritism, Favoritism, Favoritism with in staffing ranks. -The job description they give did not list cooking, and weekly cleaning audits(at least when I applied. It may be different now), and bi-weekly home transports that could take the entire shift to pick up and drop off client(s). Some times it's 8 hours of driving... by yourself. -Parents do not always support the clients' programs and make things... even more challenging. -One employee could get fired over something and another employee does the same thing, but nothing happens to them. - They will work you to death if you let them. If you want then OT then you will get a lot of it. If you don't you have to set your boundaries.
