Direct Support Staff (Former Employee) – Cedar, UT – February 22, 2018
I work for the cedar City branch and it was horrible, the upper management think they are better than everyone else, and there are a few that are very degrading to female staff and think that it's okay. I would not recommend anyone to work for this company in cedar City it least not if you wanted to be treated fairly, females get treated so unless fair it's ridiculously. The money you make is. Not worth what you have to.put up with with some clients, restraining can go so wrong and you can get hurt. It's not a safe place to work especially on your own in a home
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 20, 2018
It's a good job for college students who need to study while on the job. I enjoyed working with the individuals and helping them become more independent. This job is great for patient and caring people.
Caretaker (Current Employee) – Reno, NV – February 5, 2018
It was a rough place to work. The pay was low back then and the job was mentally and emotionally stressful. I wouldn't recommend it for those who don't enjoy this kind of work with the mentally handicapped, and who are in it for the money.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Park City, UT – February 2, 2018
Wasted 10 yrs of my life for a company that is so desperate to fill a bed....that they get clients that they have no info on/ highly behavioral clients......all while providing very little info on how to work with them. FIRED because of a lack of training employees on the serious issues that the clients have!! I dedicated my life and sacrificed a whole decade for these people. If you're desperate for a job, well go for it! If you're looking for a career......then don't waste your life on this company.
Poor upper mgmt, low wage, stressful times 75% of time
Direct Care Staff (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 30, 2018
Everyone will have their own experience which is not effected by anyone else’s time with the company. Just saying what has happened to many people who worked here. If you need a job ASAP and it doesn’t matter what it is....then go for it. That’s the only way I’ll ever encourage someone to work here. Or if you want to go into this specialized care for career. The mission for the company is great...but almost everyone is mediocre at their job here. They should really clean house.From office staff to HR, to supervisors. You can’t ignore and will be swept into some kind of drama. You have to wait a year for benefits. No vacation time(?) I believe. Basically they’ll want all your time for this job and attributes, while giving you as little pay as possible and rewards back.
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – January 29, 2018
its a good job for someone coming out of high school. a typical day started at 2:30 and there are a series of chores that you have to do on a daily basis. my previous managers that i had were excellent and they helped through alot of struggles. the best part of my job was seeing the progression. the hardest part of my job was the behaviors some of the clients had.
Counselor (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – January 8, 2018
This is the worse place I ever worked in 20 years. Poor management, poor training, unsafe work environment. Had to ride around the hood searching for the client. Had to go into homes in the hood. Unporfesswional people. Pass them by.
Care Taker (Former Employee) – West Jordan, UT – November 30, 2017
I would come in and wait for the women to come home from their classes that they took. Give them their medicine that they were prescribed. Then I was asked to think of something the ladies would enjoy to do with them. I came up with making friendship bracelets. So any down time I would work on the bracelets with them. When it was meal time i would prepare them food that was planned for lunch and dinner. Just a really relaxed job which I like to be active.
House Manager (Former Employee) – Saint George, UT – November 22, 2017
I do not recommend working here to anyone! the upper management is a joke and doesnt know how to support their employees. I also dont think that chrysalis st.george takes their clients needs into consi
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Reno, NV – October 23, 2017
I loved working for Chrysalis. I've been here a little over a year and learned so much about caring for people with special needs. However, the behaviors you deal with are difficult and you only get paid starting at $9.00... To be completely fair and honest, I had to deal with my coworkers more than my clients. Favoritism is a thing there. But if you can get passed behind that, then this job would be perfect. I enjoyed doing activities and crafts and going out to eat with my clients. It is a socially demanding job. And you have to have the heart, the guts, and the patience to be a direct support professional.
Direct Staff Support (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 7, 2017
I really enjoy working at this company, the employees are very nice and feel like family as long as I've been working there, the clients I work with are great , Working here will give you a new found love for Mentally Challenged people
