short staff
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) –  Independence, OHNovember 19, 2016
no work life balance, individuals are great to work with, but the company feels more like a call center at a pep rally, then a working with individuals with disabilities. Rarely see any nurses, responsibility is left on supervisor"s that are not have qualified in medical background training as the middle.
Pros
a lot of overtime
Cons
no breaks, high turn over, use a lot of travel miles on personal vechicle

If you have the passion the pay may come
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHAugust 30, 2016
First off, if your coming into this field be prepared for alot of thankless work and nonexistent pay but be prepared to grow to love the clients you'll work with. I will say management is ok but there were some inconsistencies from the training to the house you may work at but other than that its an ok company
Pros
Working with the clients and going on outings
Cons
Dirt low pay

Has good and bad parts like any job. Most rewarding part is when working with the individuals. Seeing the smile on their faces makes you forget about the bad parts (for the most part).

Learning experience
Community Instructor (Current Employee) –  Independence, OHNovember 11, 2015
A typical day at work could be anything from a wonderful day to a horrible day. When dealing with people with developmental disabilities you never know what the day could bring. I enjoy seeing the excitement and joy on the faces of my individuals when they have learned something new. Your patience is tested daily when working in this field. In this position you are allowed to be very creative. The only backslide is does your individual want to learn or not. The supervisors and your coworkers are open to any suggestions you may bring to the table.
Pros
Out in the community, company cars
Cons
No breaks

helping others to become independent is a great feeling.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) –  Independence, OHMarch 15, 2014
Working in a day habitation setting goes fast, every day is a different day. Being prepared for any and everything is a great balance for work. I've learned to stay persist and to never give up. The management listens to our feedback and takes it in to consideration, some times it doesn't feel as if they are completely behind us. The co-workers are great, teamwork is the only way it will work. The hardest part is to know to never get to attached to an individual. The most enjoyable part is knowing that your helping others to become as independent as possible to make it on their own.
Pros
watching people grow and get better with your help.
Cons
no breaks
