C.N.A. / Direct Care (Children's)- Portland - $500 Sign On Bonus

Location:Portland, ME
Salary Range:15.00 Per Hour
Employment Type:Full Time
Department:Direct Care

Few jobs come along that offer up the opportunity to learn and then employ state of the art treatment for youth with mental illness.  This is a chance to work in a challenging, yet fun environment. These positions offer opportunities to work closely with teams of professionals with years of clinical supervision to design and implement evidenced-based interventions. 

We are seeking CNA's to work at our children's residential facility on the Portland/Westbrook line.  This is a tremendous opportunity for the right person who wants more than just a job.  This position is best suited for individuals who crave a fast paced, dynamic environment and can embrace the learning opportunities offered in activity based programming.    

The starting wage for a CNA/Direct Care Worker is $15 per hour, with a full array of benefits. Shifts have been designed to accommodate and recognize the importance of a good work/life balance.  Training starts on day one, and never ends.


This position includes a $500 Sign On Bonus!

Many positions include sign on bonuses that are available to full-time newly hired staff.  The first half of the sign on bonus ($250) will be paid after 90 days of full-time employment and the second half of the sign on bonus ($250) will be paid after six months of full time employment.  If a new hire changes status to either part-time or per diem status during any of that timeframe, they will forfeit the sign on bonus that is yet to be paid
