This Berkshire County employer is a horrible place to work. They treat the employees like slaves. HEC has ruined a once good reputation by mistreating their employees.

It is a company that discriminates. All work places have their favorite employees. However HEC takes this to the extreme. If you do anytime of entry level job you are looked at and treated as an incompetent drone. No personal expression or opinions are allowed. This non profit racket claims to pride themselves on employee professionaism. However the HR department is quite the opposite.

Treating the employees at trash. They will do anything to blame others for their mistakes. I usually dont post but this place has wronged so many people who have dedicated thier time to helping kids. Its a bussiness plan and simple. Hillcrest is designed to make a few rich and the rest struggle.

Yah I like that non profit moniker. there is nothing non profit about this place or BMC either. there are people making millions on these medical facilities and don't let them make you think otherwise. Health care contributes to the pockets of many of the one percenters who control much of the nations wealth.

I worked at h.e.c for 3 years leaving oct of last year i found hec to be an excellant oppurtunity if you had a bad experience you can talk to the board of directors or perhaps even a lawyer but do not use this kind of forum to get even. because hillcrest all in all is a well run company from the top on down j.m.

All in all it is a corrupt organization. Do you really think the board will listen to someone who gets spit, blood, cum, and physical violence thrown at them every time they go to work.....For ten dollars an hour. Shut that place down. Stop releasing violent twisted kids in our community.

Are HEC staff unionized? It certainly won't help all the problems but it does help some. The salary will never be high and there will always be behavioral issues to deal with but staff deserve the utmost respect for the work they do day in and day out. Unfortunately, this is the way it is at the adult providers as well but I think we do treat our staff with more dignity than staff who work with those under 22yrs.

You still looking for a place in North Adams. This response says you are dumb enough.

...and what is your intelligent response to people who work harder in one day than you will ever work in a lifetime and hardly get paid anything for it?
As far as your obsession with North Adams, get over it already. You write the same thing in all your posts no matter the topic. Did it ever occur to you that there are people who post on these forums who live no where near you? Seems like you are only aware of two small towns and haven't ever been out of Berkshire County your entire life.
