Review from a 10+ Year Employee

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Anika is a incredible place to work, simple as that! I have worked many positions available within this company. You work with high risk youth who have mental illness, addiction, behavioral issues. Some days are tough, while others leave your heart feel full and you goto bed remembering why you do what you do! There is room to grow and move to new positions. You will always have a huge team of fun, upbeat, inspiring, professioal woman behind you and supporting you and encouraging you !

Pros

So many pros!!

Cons

Long shifts at times.. BUT consistancy is key for these Youth, Its not positive to have shift changes daily.

False Job Description and Job Advertisement, Misleading.

The job description has nothing to do with the type of work you will actually do. Unprofessional interviewer, misleading and rude. Waste of time. Warned!

Extremely rewarding work!

Anika Youth Services is an amazing workplace and team to be a part of. You get to work with high risk female youth, so individuals with addictions, mental health issues, behavioral/developmental struggles, trauma, etc. It is the greatest privilege to be invited into these young girls' lives and homes to be a positive support for them. A typical day will really depend on which house you are working in and which youths you are with. Often, you will assist the youths in getting to and from school, appointments with doctors and mental health professionals, as well as other community resources that they are involved with. And you get to do cool recreational activities with them as well, like going shopping, going to rec centers, movies, swimming, animal rescue facilities, and a huge variety of other amazing places that the girls love. Some days are slow and some days are more filled; there is usually a pretty good balance. The support team at Anika is fantastic. You never have to feel like you are alone in any situation because you have other residential staff, crisis workers, resource coordinators, youth workers, and supervisory staff that have your back ALL the time and always want to make sure you are safe and happy and not overwhelmed. Your work-life balance at Anika is exactly that: balanced. As a full time residential support worker, you work two days on, two days off, and every other weekend, so your time is split in half, which is really important in this kind of work. Since the shifts are 24 hours long, you are given full 24 hour days off to recuperate and practice self - 

Pros

Lots of fun activities, food and gas budget, FANTASTIC staff team

Cons

Can be stressful
