Suggestions for improvement

  • House parenting is a hard job and least appreciated job. House parents are told that they are what keeps the facility going but actions speak louder than words and they are not treated that way. Consistency in rules would be wonderful, rules are the one thing to never stay the same. The one thing consistent here is inconsistency.

What I like about the company

There are quite a few departments here that are a wonderful place to work. Job security is in place in those departments. The opportunity for overtime is there as well.Hours of operation are the normal working hours and gives you plenty of time with your family. Working one on one with the teenagers is very challenging and takes a strong, thick skinned person to be able to maintain longevity. You do not get paid for the hours you put in which makes it hard for quality time with your family.

What I dislike about the company

Being a house parent living with the students full time is very challenging. It is not a physically exhausting job but emotionally exhausting job

Company Culture

One day, you are feeling on top of the world and other days, you are treated like an idiot. No management training and empowerment for employees.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Depends who you are.

Career Development

Possibilities for educational opportunities are there if management allows you to go.

Job Security

I have watched people quit due to management issues. I also have seen people get terminated due to not fitting in to the culture.

Challenging Work

The work is challenging to get done on time but not challenging as a "change" module.

Inclusive / Diverse

Management has Leadership Forums that only include particular employees. All employees should be included in the leadership forums so they can best help the students with the mission of the school. They say that all employees are important in the process but then do not include them in the mission-directed workshops. I believe management is expected to come back and educate employees but that doesn't happen.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Holding management accountable for their managerial style relating to the mission of the school. Including all employees in the leadership forums as we are all representative adult mentors for the MHS students. Providing mandatory training for managers.

What I like about the company

The mission of the school; helping to mold and educate underprivileged youth.

What I dislike about the company

Undermining of management, micro-managing, and old-style, antiquated policies and operating procedures. No desire to make big changes. Managment not allowing employees the empowerment to make decisions. Cliques that are damaging to operating departments.
