Pros: clients, usually overtime if you choose
Cons: very expensive benefits, unjust ways of dealing with employees.
I got clients up and ready for their day and communicated with staff about shift before. Took care of the task(s) that were needing to be taken care of. Paper work, community time, meetings. Most of the staff I worked with were great people and always did as I asked. Management honestly became really unethical, questionable, and immoral. The most enjoyable part of the job was the individuals I served. The hardest part of my job was the unethical way misconduct was handled. I was the Primary Advocate for the ISL and an employee was sexually harassing myself and another one of my staff. He was put back into my ISL and he continued with the harassment with me and I reported him again and I got moved to a different ISL that I had no training on, and was told it was because, "my shifts were easier to fill than his." While working with this individual I knew nothing about I was told to take her to the ER and their company wheel chair van lift was broke so I had to hold on to her chair and manually pump her up into the van and I ended up hurt. While on workman's comp (December-January) I was written up twice and then demoted and suspended and my workman's comp pay quit the day I was suspended. I've called and called to find out when I can come back and it is now March and can still not get anyone to talk to me. So, I decided I don't want to be devoted to a company like this, I want to move on to a more healthier work environment! (He still works there)
