Direct Care Staff Member, Florida - August 2, 2017
As with many new job opportunities FUMCH offers quite a bit. They have full and part time openings with an array of benefits. In the time I have worked there I have seen a decline in the compensation package leaning toward a more modest offering. They do still have full time insurance, retirement matching and paid vacation/sick time (that is if you can ever schedule it off.) The opportunity for a pay increase when offered (not always available) has been a variable 1% -3% and often based on review by a supervisor with little to no direct contact throughout the year. The work environment provides a higher stress for employees which leads to turnovers with working to cover gaps until management can scramble to find replacements or restructure to eliminate openings all together. It seems to be always behind the curve with staffing. This appears to be systemic of the organization as much of the leadership being newly hired (within 3-5 years) has a turnover being about as high as with the direct care staff. Over all this could be a great place to work although short term as the inconsistencies with management, staffing problems and lowering compensation keeps it from reaching its true potential.
