Youth Counselor Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Youth Counselor?

Youth Counselor in Norfolk:
"Great."
Pros: Small community
Cons: Pay isn’t well

Youth Counselor in Denver:
"Micromanagement, Poor Salary, 2% Raises Annually."
Pros: Being able to see unsuccessful children become success stories and go back to public school because I spent most of the time helping them more than anyone else at that facility.
Cons: All the work you do to help the children goes unnoticed. Upper management will take credit for your achievements and then lecture or micromanage you. It is impossible to move up in the company so as to obtain more pay and responsibilities. The facility brings in extremely high risk children that we are not equipped to handle. This creates fear of possibly losing our jobs if we have to defend ourselves from aggressive and violent children. If you have rave reviews on your evaluation with your supervisor you will only get the standard 2% pay increase annually that everyone else receives. Ergo, no incentive to try hard.

Youth Counselor in Oakland:
"Working with young youth attitude/behavior."
Pros: Working with the youth.
Cons: None.
