    Pros

    Co workers are nice. The training is very in-depth.

    Cons

    If you have kids or are a single parent, this is not the right place. In the car driving sometimes 4 hours a day. Its wear and tear on your car and forget about if you have kids whose days end between 4-6. You won't be able to make sure they get home because clients come first

    Pros

    Salary, but, if you want time off you'll need to work extra on the days you are working so you won't fall behind (no overtime). The direct team of specialists is supportive and kind. A lot of people end up moving up career wise at YV, but there isn't much actual room for growth... about 5 positions in management are on rotation regularly due to turnover. You are eligible for benefits, but with the pay being about 3k each month before benefits are taken out... You get an additional 80 for your cell phone and your mileage is paid, but depends on miles and where you go..

    Cons

    Pay was very low. No overtime pay and if you work a holiday you will get an additional day off later, but, to take days off, you have to do extra work on your working days so you do not fall behind. Tried to express our needs as a team and was always just referred to HR who stated there was nothing they could do, and encouraged to provide feedback on annual surveys and stay interviews. They made sure to skip some of our stay interviews though.. They promised us to increase our pay, but, 6 months later, still nothing. Super understaffed and low retention. No hazard pay during the pandemic, made decisions on how specialists will conduct in-home sessions at peak breakout periods without talking to them about it. Client will most likely have your personal phone number, as you do not get a work phone. You go to clients homes and transport them in your own car. You will lack privacy in that regard. Annual salary is an additional approximate 100 a month. You cannot regularly cash out unused vacation/sick time.

    Pros

    If you are serious about helping the lives of damaged youth, this organization is in the center of that world. There are many classes and resources to use to better your skillsets both professional and personal. Benefits are solid. My campus was in the middle of the woods and had many places to relax and take space.

    Cons

    Organization is horribly ran - from the very top down. Due to poor management and incompetent staff of all ranking types, you will undergo many compromising and dangerous situations. If you do not care to work directly with children that have gone through trauma, then this job is NOT for you. These kids do not need to be around people who are "just looking for a job". Trust me, you will suffer for it through job stress and more.
