Patient Care Tech (Former Employee), St. Louis, MODecember 10, 2014
Pros: enjoyed the work i did
Cons: life consuming
A typical day at work was making sure my clients were picked up from work/school and driven to any evening activities. Made sure they had dinner and was bathed and dressed for bed.The hardest part of the job was being away from my family and taking care of someone else's child. The best part of the job was the relationships formed between me and my clients.

Emmaus Homes
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee), Marthasville, MoAugust 19, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: highly stressful and risky
A Lot of staff have to pull double shifts because staff cannot be kept there and people misbehave badly. It can be a great place to work if you are highly energetic but I am and I about collapsed with it all. People bully you because they don't want to work the extra shift and you are the only one willing to. Managers are always stressed. Our manager just quit.

Support Staff (Former Employee), St Charles, MOJuly 16, 2014
Pros: flexible workplace
Cons: no advancement
A typical day at Emmaus Homes would include providing personal care and support for individuals with disabilities. I learned how to help enhance the life of others through daily support and community integration. The hardest part of the job is saying good-bye to those served at the end of my shift. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a smile on the face of the person or people I provided assistance to.

Productive and Fun work place
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee), Saint Charles, MOFebruary 22, 2014
Pros: you get to work with some wonderful people., you can make life-long friendships., really good support system for the staff.
Cons: can be very mentally straining., some of the new houses are still in minor chaos mode.
Like any company, it has its issues but overall, it is a great place to work if you enjoy doing social work. It is also a really good place to work while in school because of the many different shifts available. Every day is a new challenge though, but at the end of the day, I knew I made a difference the lives of the people I served. Emmaus is definitely up on the technology available which makes for an easier shift. They are really like one big family and offer a great support system for their staff.

Residental Quality Manager (Former Employee), Saint Charles, MOOctober 22, 2013
Pros: friendly and fun
Cons: paperwork heavy and
If you are a social worker that enjoys working with clients then this job is not for you. The job was 95% paperwork and 5% working with the people. Emmaus has a great group of people working around them but the employees are overworked and under paid.

My favorite job
DSP (Former Employee), Marthasville, MOJuly 17, 2013
Pros: free meals, outings, teaching clients, healthcare experience, laid back
Cons: not paid enough, not able to ask for time off
Was my favorite job ever! The pay is a bit low, understaffed so hard to request time off. Management had their favorites who got better treatment. I ended up in a good house in the end. Loved my co workers and Manager. Loved the clients. Easy job, sometimes your safety is at risk with clients but usually avoidable. I wish I was still in Missouri and I would be there working!

Moving clients out into the community-quickly and haphazardly
Residential Quality Manager (Former Employee), St. Charles, MOOctober 19, 2012
Pros: flex schedule, great clients, generally amazing co-workers
Cons: poor pay, poor management, virtually no training, corporate greed
Emmaus Homes was started in the late 1800s to help people with disabilities. They have a gorgeous campus in St. Charles where the clients live. Emmaus is vacating the campus in order to integrate the clients into the community, which is fantastic; however, they are not staffing the new homes before they open them. During my brief time with the company, I opened two homes, neither of which were adequately staffed before clients moved in. Had I not worked many hours of unpaid overtime, there would have been no one to care for the clients.

Emmaus does not properly train their managers, which among other things makes for a very high turnover rate.

Also, it's a nonprofit organization and the directors drive very swanky company vehicles.

Pros: creativity
Cons: communication
It was a good place to work and learn new things everyday. A typical day at work was to insure safety, and hygience. Everyday we entered the community if the weather was in good condition. The fun part of the job was that it was fun to create new things such as projects and crafts
