Residential Instructor (Current Employee) –  Hyannis, MADecember 24, 2013
I worked mornings or overnights. A typical day would be waking the consumer and getting breakfast and bathing. Learned how to communicate with the consurmer as to avoid struggles with decision making while still giving them a sense of control in their life. Co workers were good and did better with experience and learning the routines. The most enjoyable part of the day is hearing the consumer laugh, seeing them smile, hearing them thank you for heping them.
Pros
benefits, vacation, personal time, good bonus depending on job performance
Cons
did not get a raise for 6 years.

Get another job if you can. I got 2 raises in almost 10 years there. Good pay, good benefits yet you might as well become a CNA and make more money because that is what you will be doing most of the time. They are supposed to be independent as possible yet most staff will be more than happy to do everything for them to reduce the struggle which makes it more difficult for the staff that have experience and are doing what they are supposed to do. There's no competition as far as money, experienced or not, you all get the same and they will hire anyone off the street. High turnover, burnout because of management being poor or inexperienced and not trained properly. don't expect praise or incentives, there is nothing but you knowing you did a good job. If this is what you want, apply.

Only if you cannot get another job

This was a great job to have while I completed my college degree in nursing. This company will hire almost anyone off of the street because there is such a lack in people willing to do this type of work. I absolutely loved working with this population of consumers, however the pay does not allow anyone to live.
