Good clients, terrible management
Direct Care Staff (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – June 2, 2017
While the work itself is rewarding, it certainly doesn't pay well. I signed up to do overnight shifts and they said that would work. What they don't really tell you is that you're expected to work a weekend. A full weekend. You get there on Saturday and don't leave until Monday morning, and this is on top of working 16 hour shifts during the week.
The training is terrible. Luckily this wasn't the first time I had worked in this field, because without prior knowledge I wouldn't have been able to do anything. The paperwork is never properly explained, the routines are never gone over, and the supervisors don't help. They'll just tell you to ask a different over worked staff to do "more" training, without telling the other staff beforehand.
Clients themselves were enjoyable.
No breaks, terrible supervisors, limited training, verbal abuse.
