I wish you guys the best of luck. I left YCAS because my supervisor was a crazy spaz. I had a caseload of 20, withouth ANY TRAINING, I was not even an authorized worker and I was covering 6 cases while my coworker was on a 6 week educational leave. Despite my having complained to my supervisor, asking for training etc she provided none and the first case I was given was a sexual abuse case. I had no idea [what] a transfer visit was or anything. And I was made to feel guilty for having the flu (that later turned into bronchitis because I did not take a proper rest). Anyway, I hope you guys get higher wages and treated with more respect. I am sad I left YCAS, but I got an awesome job as a supervisor so it's all good.
