What is health insurance like at Sequel Youth & Family Services?

Pros

Potential overtime Free meals when at work Easy to pick up shifts I honestly cannot think of any more “Pro’s” because the the salary is so incredibly low, you have to have a second job in order to make ends meet. Health insurance is an option; however, it’s so darn expensive, most people cannot afford it. The pro’s that I’ve listed is really about it.

Cons

Where do I start?? EXTREMELY LOW SALARIES ACROSS THE BOARD (if you’re in corporate leadership then your salary can range from $250,000 to $500,000). For the rest of us, you’re struggling to pay all of your monthly expenses. Health insurance is horrifically expensive, especially for employee + children or employee + family. Hold on to your hats when see the cost of these two options. If you have a strong facility leadership team, the youth in that facility will be held accountable for their inappropriate actions. Look out if the facility leadership team does the minimum-you might think you walked into “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest” where the patients ran the facility! The turnover rate will give you whiplash so be prepared to learn A LOT of new names while you work for Sequel! I saved the best for last…. No bonuses, no pay raises, and rarely are you evaluated in your position. One of the teachers at the facility that I work in has been here going on 10 years. To date, he’s gotten 1 raise in the amount of $0.63!! So, if low pay, horrible teenagers (with felony and occasionally misdemeanor convictions) that you’re responsible for every time you walk in the door, did I mention that all Youth Care Workers (YCW) are also the janitorial service since Sequel refuses to spend the money to pay for an outside service to come in and clean the facility (cleaning ALL of the bathrooms, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, wiping down all student desks/furniture in the common area of the facility, all youth laundry including folding it and putting it in each youth’s bedroom, plus lots of other cleaning services that YCW’s must do on each shift (each shift is 12 hours, and there are 2 shifts per day). Who’s rushing to get their resume/job application into Sequel’s corporate office?!

Advice to Management

We literally have only 6 YCW’s at our facility now. Why? Who in the world is dumb enough to work like a dog for 12 hours a shift, three shifts in a row, dealing with manipulative/conniving/rude/and potentially dangerous teens all for $11 an hour?! We cannot get people in our facility nor will we until you, yes YOU CORPORATE OFFICE LEADERSHIP TEAM, actually pay people what they’re worth as well as all the crap we deal with from the youth! I personally think we deserve hazard pay!!
