Working in the Mental Health Field
Working in the field of mental health can be demanding, as each individual we serve has different strengths and needs—it requires patience, dedication to serving others, flexibility, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities. It can be greatly rewarding, too—just read our client and staff testimonials.
Training and Professional Development
People Incorporated provides on-the-job training in skills needed for certain positions, and opportunities for professional development which are paid by the corporation. We offer competitive salaries and benefits, including paid time-off for full- and part-time staff and 403(b) investment opportunities with immediate vesting.
Schedules and Other Requirements
We operate many residential programs that provide services round-the-clock, so work schedules can include multiple shifts, weekends, overnights, and/or holidays, depending on the program. As we work in human services, all employees are subject to a background check and, if required to drive as part of the job, a motor vehicle record check.
