Executive Director (Former Employee) – Abilene, TX – July 12, 2017
As the ED a standard day entailed crisis management, state audits, HR team building, budget/financial meetings with corporate, continually educating oneself on state laws, and most importantly ensuring every intellectually disabled individual is safe, happy, and as independent as possible. The workplace culture was that of growth while strategically balancing quality versus quantity to ensure all services are person centered.
working with the indivduals; continually learning; exceptional corporate team

Great Educational Opportunities, to grow if have done HCS before. QA is Bad. Need to get Read of some that are not Nurses, try to be and fail. Sean Levy and black lady at SA, are horrible. They do not know nursing and fail. Alot of drama, back stabbing, discrimination. SA ED too young, inexperienced. Not understand people.
Good Wages, Some Flexibility
Qa, Horrible Supervising Nurses. Calls from below on Mondays.

Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – San Angelo, TX – May 4, 2017
I've only worked here for about 2 month now and I like the clients and most of the employees. I feel as though the company doesn't care about their employees enough to give them a raise. I know people who have worked here for 5+ years and they are still being paid the same as new employees.
Relaxing, light house cleaning
No breaks, bad health insurance, Bad pay, minimum overtime, etc.
The individual are a joy to be around and get to know them better.
House Manager (Current Employee) – Cleveland, TN – May 1, 2017
The company is not a great company. They have lack of communication, unprofessional and unorganized. The individuals who I work with are great individuals full with jokes and laugher always wanting to have a good time. The company has bad employees, bad leadership and bad communication skills.
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – April 25, 2017
The company had a major layoff in March and now the offices are short staffed. Management is horrible and the turnover for this company is higher than a McDonalds. This place is good for a quick paycheck. It is drama city with unprofessional staff and political nation with upper management playing favorites.
You can lie about the hours you work and you'll still get paid for it

Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Abilene, TX – April 12, 2017
A typical day for me at this job when I was employed was I would arrive at work at 10pm. I would clock in then I would double check med passes from the previous shift to make sure there were no errors. Most of my clients would already be in bed. I would start laundry and clean the kitchen area. then around 2 or 3 am i would start cleaning bathrooms, mopping all floors and dusting. at 6 am i had to wake up a few of my clients to take their meds. then i would prepare breakfast. at 7am i would wake all 13 clients to take meds. also when i arrived on shift it was mandatory to take water temps in kitchen and all bathrooms. and count all medicines in the "controlled" box
I was able to work by myself which I enjoyed
personally there were really no cons i absolutely enjoyed my job and my clients
