Providing the best care in the North State to individuals with developmental disabilities!!!
Administrator (Current Employee), Redding, CA – August 19, 2014
Pros: 8 straight hour shifts
Cons: no benefits, i.e. 401k, medical, vision, paid vacation, on-call 24/7
I manage a residential home for adults with developmental disabilities with a special interest in dual diagnoses and highly behavioral individuals. I manage all staffing schedules involved with the facility as well as provide training to all staff members to promote a smooth operating facility that remains in compliance with Ca. W & I Code Title 17 – more... & Title 22 of the Lanterman Act of 1970. A typical day consists of balancing Administration duties as well as direct care supervision of the individuals served. Not only were direct care supervision duties implemented but staff training was implemented as well. The hardest part of the job was matching the work schedule with all the staff's personal schedules, i.e. schooling, personal, and/or other professional requests. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the individuals grow by using the trainings implemented and gaining their own independence as well as working towards more normalization. – less

Pros: nice people freindly enviroment.
Cons: not enough money.
Staff and management are friendly and willing to go the extra mile for there employes.The only reason I left was the lack of pay on contracts.The rates on the work they had was to low and they couldn't get any other contracts.
Special Education Assistant (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – May 21, 2014
Cons: pay wage
I walk into work and follow my set schedule of classes that are in need of assistance specifically the special needs students, but also ordinary students as well. Throughout this semester I've learned patience and motivation in the process of helping High School students especially when preparing for test. The level of maturity begins to self motivate – more... the kids to study which makes my job easier and worth it. A student who wants to learn will learn even through life hardships. The hardest part about my job would be students who don't have the mindset or motivation to learn, but rather waste time and don't look at they're future well being. – less

Title I Nonpublic School Teacher (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – February 27, 2014
Pros: good benefits, peer collaboration, no weekend or holiday hours, awesome opportunities to interact with the community
Cons: growth and security are uncertain
A typical day is fast-paced and student-centered. Meetings, breaks, and peer conversations are all used to plan for student achievement, and every moment is used to its maximum potential. I learned to be even more organized, flexible, and efficient. I have also learned to engage parents in their child's education with a charisma I did not possess as – more... a first year teacher.
Working in IPS has its challenges. It is sometimes hard to balance the challenges of single parenthood while working the extra hours needed to provide my family with financial security and improve student success. However, finding out what makes a student click and watching the light bulb of understanding go off is an amazingly rewarding feeling.
Management is under construction right now, so it is an uncertain time right now. – less

Pros: lots of training, fun people to work with.
Cons: hour drive to work
Gas and Oil field industry, which was fun to work for. There was a lot to learn and lots of training. I did a lot of different positions within this job from shop assistant to office assistant to parts manager. Lack in production I was laid off.

Backbone (Current Employee), Illinois – February 22, 2013
Pros: decent starting wage.
Cons: management, lack of communication, favoritism, unsafe, dishonest.
Decent starting wage but thats where it ends. You are only eligible for a raise after 1 year and then you most likely will not get it unless you are an asset which hardly anybody is, almost everyone is expendable. No room for advancement. Told you will be in one position during the interview then once you start work you are their little errand boy doing – more... all the grunt work. Job is easy, a lot of downtime. Can't leave early even if there is no production running, just have to clean or act busy. Expect you to climb on top of loaded semi trailers, without proper fall protection, to help drivers tarp their loads. Expect to see your supervisors taking break while you are still working. Horrible management, the worst management I've ever had to work under. There are been a couple of times I have been cleaning and everyone went to break and no one told me it was break time. Co-workers are okay, everyone has the same things to say about the company. Nobody likes it but when there is nothing else to do you take what you can get. – less
