    Pros

    You choose the jobs you take. It's a good way for newer social workers to gain experience and get a job quickly after you get your license.

    Cons

    Pay is okay, not great. The placement fee is too high, even if the placement would like to hire you.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with workers about the finder/placement fee.

    I worked at Social Work (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great internships, my foundation year internship was the basis for my work in addictions

    Cons

    Great internships, there were no cons. These internships were extremely valuable in teaching myself what direction to begin my career as a social worker. That is not to say I will forever stay in this particular area of social work, or counseling.

    Competitive salary and hours. Hometown feel it's a really friendly work environment everyone helps each other professional and thorough educated multidisciplinary team.

    Some handoffs from one shift to the next could have been more complete and thorough. Training initially left a little to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Use the skills of the employees you have, offer incentives include training staff in the interview process, and incorporate computer training into weekday work schedule. Continue the great orientation process.
