Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – January 21, 2016
I didn't work there very long but the few months that I did work there were quite wonderful. My coworkers made me want to show up for work. We worked as a team and got to make lives of the clients who lived there as comfortable as possible.
RESIDENTIAL SUPPORT STAFF (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – October 20, 2015
This place takes advantage of you and makes you feel like your own family is not important and your world only revolves around them. overtime is not paid time and a half. you are on salary so they can take advantage of you.
Rehab Technician (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – September 2, 2015
My job was to train residents social skills that they are able to learn and not forget so that they could be placed out in to the community. I learn a lot working at CCSSLC most importantly to do my job the best that I could because I learn that no one is going to help me out but myself. Management was easy to talk to but not always supportive. The hardest part of my job was learning to do things myself and learning from my mistakes. The most enjoyable part of my job was the residents, the love and respect they give.
Team Leader/Trainer (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – April 7, 2015

Unified Records Coordinator (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, Tx – March 10, 2015
Typical day I go from home to home doing audits and come back to my office and do a monitoring tool for each audit. I learned that doctors and nurses can make mistakes. Management is fine, but will not sign off on anything. The hardest part is that I can't do my job unless some else does their job first. Interacting with client.
Great benefits-Healthcare, holidays and great co-workers
Management doesn't want to be held accountable for anything
Food Service Worker I (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – January 31, 2015
I was made to prepare and serve a 3 course meal with 3 main course options daily for 125 residents, by my self in 4 hours. I was called in on almost every day off. Overtime was not properly paid, which lead to a class action lawsuit. I received vacation days but was not allowed to ever take them. The residents and co-workers were the best part about the job, and the only thing that made it bearable. Management was terrible.

as a DSP we help individuals with their daily living skills, in addition we help the bath,toilet and dress them selves for work. working around individuals with disabilities is the only fun part about the job; but if i had too rate the staff on a scale 0-10 i would give them a 0 the work environment, and staff is just ugly their attitudes and the way the talk to people is just not business like.

Assistant Team Leader (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – June 8, 2013
This place isn't a place I would recommend to someone that isn't willing to work hard. If you have patience and are a hard worker then you might like it for about a few months. The benefits are why I stayed there for about 4 years. Other than that, I wouldn't go back there. Management needs a lot of work and the entry level positions suffer from that fall out. With that being said, the personal rewards for working here are great. You are able to help out people that really need help. It's a good feeling knowing that you're helping people that can't help themselves.
Direct Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi – February 16, 2013
Working at CCSSLC taught me the many ways people can beautiful even when they aren't what society says is normal. It has humbled me beyond my years. I am thankful to have worked with such amazing individuals.
To much drama for among my co-workers. Which is why I resigned.
Direct Care Staff (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – October 16, 2012
I enjoyed this job very much because it was rewarding. I resigned because no one got a long and it seemed that after my 1 yr mark there that most people there even upper mgmt thought of it as just a pay check. The lack of moral was a big turn off and I didn't care to be apart of it any longer.
for me the ability to help those less fortunate
most co-workers didn't take the job serious enough. lack of "care"
