Moving clients out into the community-quickly and haphazardly
Residential Quality Manager (Former Employee) – St. Charles, MO – October 19, 2012
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.
flex schedule, great clients, generally amazing co-workers
poor pay, poor management, virtually no training, corporate greed
