I have been part of the company since September 2010 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have developed friendships with our clients over 7 years. I work with a great team that works well together. I am looking to continue my life to better people.

First time working at a MRDD workshop. I had a lot of fun working there and met a bunch of awesome people. I enjoyed working with all of my clients. Management and co-workers were some of the best I have ever worked with. Learned new techniques when handling many different situations.

I work with individuals with disabilities. I help with their ADL'S and I work in the production room in which I help them do their daily work to earn a paycheck. I make sure the staff in the room does their paperwork correctly and I also make sure the individuals and the staff have the proper materials to do there job that day. I also make sure the staff signs off on in-service sheets and make sure the can correct the problem or teach them what ever they need to know that's on the in-service sheets.
Prior to buy out from provider services... Best job ever
Production Specialist (Current Employee) – Ohio – July 24, 2013
With company for 5 years. Always loved my job. Always. Would rave to family and friends.. Refer everyone to my company. Staff always held to the highest standards of care. Company was bought-out by "Provider Services/Provider Holdings" Everyone who has been with this company for greater than 1 year is seeking other employment. Cost of benefits tripled. Paid days off rapidly declined. Salaried employees became hourly..Raises disappeared. New policies/procedures tripled work load. Moral is at an all-time low. I have never experienced anything like this. If you are seeking a get-me-by job. Do apply. If seeking a career with a wonderful organization... you are too late. RUN. Run far and fast from CLW.
I love my job & this community; but, not this horrid company. Still employed and working to the best of my ability- While directors beg me not to go....
provider services/corporate office feeds their pockets at clients and staffs expense

Unfortunately, that's all you get is what the job is supposed to be, and get blamed for what you aren't doing right when you only do what you have been taught or told to do. Very unprofessional people that you work for, that for some reason seem to like degrading people. The most enjoyable part is the consumers that you work with.
A typical day at Creative Working Workshop was transporting individuals from their home to work, then preparing assessments for individuals for vocational goals. The individuals would work for an hour sweeping the floor making minim-wage, shredding paper, and placing labels on envelopes. After the individuals completed their work I work document their vocational goals, update plans, and transport individuals home. I learned effective communication, problem solving, preparing vocational goals, advocating, and creating plans vocational plans. The management were extremely helpful, having an open door policy to ask questions and excess their vocational history. Co-workers worked as a team and assisted with bringing individuals to their work stations. The hard part of the job was being about to verbal prompt was lifting an individual on to a changing table. The most enjoyable part of that job was seeing the smiles on the individual's face when him or her received their paycheck.
working with individuals, effective communication, working for a purpose, and creating my own vocational program.
distance to work and not being able to move up in the company.
