my apologies. trinity is the lords ranch. they had to change their name for insurance purposes. it is a good place to work. i know quite a few people that work there and they like it. i was thinking of Freedom ministries. right down the highway from trinity. but either place is a good place to work.

It is in the middle of nowhere in ARKANSAS, PLUS, although it is not a horrible place to work they do not offer ANY health benefits or commuting/transportation funds for those that have to drive a LONG way to get back and forth to work EVERY DAY. I worked there for about a week and did not go back. First, you go through two or three interviews, then you are hired for one to two weeks under the supervision of your potential immediate supervisor as well as Human Resources. Then, after one week, usually two weeks actually, on the last day, you will have to meet with the CEO (or CFO--whatever you call him), and if your immediate supervisor has decided that he/she likes you and/or wants you to become part of the team, you will go through your final interview with the head man. You are then hired. They will not tell you your salary until AFTER the two-weeks, AND, you will not be paid for those two-weeks of work UNLESS you are offered the position AND ACCEPT IT. Hence, if you decide it is not for you, or they decide you are not the one for the job, then you have wasted all of that time (when you could be seeking other employment)and gas money FOR NOTHING. Also, just so you know, when I was doing my "two-weeks" as a potential employee, there was also TWO other people doing the same thing----FOR THE SAME JOB I WAS APPLYING FOR. Therefore, in order to not risk losing any more time and/or money, I chose to walk at the end of my first week. I was not about to drive forty miles ONE way to a job, 40 hours a week, for two entire weeks and NOT GET PAID. What if I did not get hired? I just wanted to warn you, because I just think it is so weird.......... If you do not believe me just call HR and they will verify what all I have said. It is true. I understand that they have to find really good employees for this type of work, but I do not think it is fair to the potential employees. And, I really do not know how they get away with not paying these people for thier work, even when they are not hired. That should be against the law, and frankly, I think it is. But, whatever. At least I got away. It was definitely different there; the people were very nice and kind and polite though, I will say that. Also, just a little warning: t here is no cell service, and you have to stay on the ranch for lunch, otherwise there is nowhere else to go. There is not even a soda machine for miles and miles and miles.....probably 30 at least. And, they do not have one on the ranch either. May sound petty, but after a while it could get old.
I hope I do not sound like a weirdo, but I thought you should know. Just think about it, how often do they have an ad in the paper? Why........because of the enormous amount of turnover. There has to be something strange about it........., don't you think?

I read the first two or three sentences and I just had to stop there. It's not about the benefits, it's about helping the teens and children that are there. If you are only there because of money or hoping that there will be some kind of benefits then you just might as well leave. The kids know if you are there for them or for the money or benefits. They can tell by the way you act and the way you treat them. Also, you're wrong, there is a little store right across the road right before you turn onto the road. You shouldn't be using your cell phone there anyways, DUH.

I really loved this place. It helped me with quite a bit of things I had been going through. They are really great with the kids there. I found that the staff were very helpful with the problems we were having. The Pastor there is incredible! He knows just how to get to you. He makes the word of God so understandable. The supervisors are great too. My favorite part of it all was church and chapel, they have a great ministry!

Don't know how long it's been since you've been there, but the store has been closed for about two years now...

I have a job interview there in a few weeks. I was just reading the comments, and it is not right not to pay for those training weeks. I am relocating from Memphis to Jonesboro; so, I do not know anything about this place. However, I was not told the salary, and I am driving from Tennessee. It can be very expensive. I hope they will tell me after I ask again at the interview or I will not be working for this establishment.

depending on what ahift you go to.
1st shift starts at 10 an hour
2nd shift starts at 9 an hour
3rd shift start at approximately 8.25

and you can not depend on raises you may get one and you may not. people get their pay cut more than they get raises.

WRONG!!!! The Lord's Ranch changed their name to Trinity Behavioral Health. And it is for trouble children not a half way house. The children there have emotional, health, and/or mental problems.

IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO WORK ANY ONE WITHOUT PAYING THEM!!!! Why would any one believe one would travel than distance to work without pay--turn it over to the LABOR BOARD! You will be paid for your weeks work.

The Lord's Ranch was changed to Trinity Behavorial Health with the same people running it. I have been here for over 3 years and am satisfied with the job. There are raises to be had and for the lame guy that can't live without a soda-there are sodas and candy bars for the staff to purchase. Although the hiring process is strange, you only go through a 2 or 3 days (maybe 4) for a get to know process (for lack of a better term) it gives everybody a chance to get to know everybody. You get to see the job and what is expected of you as well as seeing if you can do the job. They want the right person for the job especially when it comes with dealing with troubled kids

well all i can say is the raise they gave me and alot of other ppl on 2nd was not worth crap. i mean the raises went from nothing to thirty cents. but there was a guy who got a 75 cent raise and he always shows up like 15 or 20 minutes late. sounds like alot of ass kissing goin on to me.

I saw absolutely nothing about a store in the comment right before you. Do you have something against it?

bad timing, I was replying to Ashley B, who said there was a little store where you turn off to go to the Ranch/Trinity.
