    Former Employee - Fee for Service Therapist in Sharon Hill, PA (US)

    I worked at NHS Human Services as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great place to practice while racking up those LCSW or LPC points.

    Cons

    There is very little opportunity for supervision here that is actually meaningful and clinical in every way. Attempts to talk to supervisors were friendly but not helpful. Supervisors literally said "that's a clinical questions. I just help you with your administrative things". Client show rate is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every incoming new graduate acting as a therapist needs to have group and individual supervision that is paid. this ensures that they stay longer and clients get continuity of care. Yeah it means that you have to shell out an hour or two of your time but it is ethical and necessary to do so in order to ensure that you reduce your terrible turnover rate.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at NHS Human Services.

    Interview Details

    The interview process, initially, was very good. Great HR people and internal recruiter who was very approachable and like able. The second interview was kind of cold and did not help me understand what they were looking for, made it difficult to prove I was a good fit.

    Interview Questions
    • None really. After the initial interview, the follow up discussion was very awkward and the interviewers did not seem to really understand what they needed or were interviewing for.   Answer Question
