Vocational Instructor (Current Employee) – Bohemia, NY – June 2, 2017
It's a good stepping stone but basically a dead end job don't get me wrong but it was definitely a great job to begin with but to me I won't be here for long friendly staff and you get to know more about each individual.
stressfull and overworked not a happy place to work
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Shoreham, NY – July 17, 2017
a typical day at work is exsausting stressful day I learnedhow a job could make you very resentful because of how they treat you management is very harsh and abusive and uneducated workplace is fair the staff is tolerable the hardest part of the job is the workload and mananagement the most enjoyable is doing my job and having staff praise me for doing my job

DON'T. Ahrc is a Great organization, but shoreham facility is a mess. Authentic , skilled leadership absent. Directors say they care but their actions say otherwise. Whole place is overflowing with too many well-compensated, incompetent do -nothings who sit in their fancy offices all day while lower management, direct care and nurses run themselves ragged for little pay taking care of things that actually matter during a shift that never ends. Lack of vital communication harms good care for the clients.

I enjoy working with these individuals to help them achieve goals to functon in everyday life. The bond you build with these people are amazing and unconditional. The management works very hard to teach us all the important things needed and to always work as a team.
If you are looking for a nursing career, this is NOT where you will find one.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Shoreham, NY – April 12, 2017
Successful leadership is lacking. No support for nursing what so ever! A typical day there is like running a marathon, in and out of the building, across the parking lot and to other buildings to administer medications and respond to emergencies. Nurses are putting their careers at risk with these unsafe practices. Everyone is miserable unless you are one of the few favorites, then you can get away with doing nothing and it totally be overlooked, good luck to all the honest hard workers!
House Manager (Former Employee) – Shoreham, NY – March 13, 2017
Shoreham ICF was the worst job experience of my career. Morale in the toilet across the board. Totally disorganized and mismanaged. Everyone is miserable and just trying to use up their pto before they quit or are let go. What they call training is a giant joke. You will be thrown to the wolves because the staffing is criminal. The majority of the company seems pretty decent but that particular location is in turmoil.

Management is the worse it's ever been. Staff are overworked and underpaid. No raises. Management doesn't care about its employees at shoreham. It's pay is average but don't expect a raise every year or every five years at that. Nurses are overworked and constantly being told they have to stay late because of lack of nursing staff. There is a very high turn over rate for employees there.
Fair place to work if you don't want to be appreciated
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Bohemia, NY – August 18, 2016
Staff is over work and underpaid. Higher management makes 400,000 a year and never comes into the world of direct care. Direct care staff never get raises or any incentives other than a cheap health insurance plan.
Flexible if you are in school
No raises, no appreciation, higher management doesn't care about anything other than billing and how they can get paid
Community integration specialist (Current Employee) – Ronkonkoma, NY – July 25, 2016
If you are thinking about applying to this agency do not work in day program, management is poor and loves to micromanage. Short staff but expects you to do everything from tolieting to working on tasks with the individuals. You will do the work for 3 people and get poor pay. I started off in the iras and when transferred to day program I got a pay cut and they took away my raise.
Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bohemia, NY – May 8, 2016
