Direct Support Coordinator (Current Employee) – Gloversville, NY – August 14, 2017
Working with the special needs individuals and their families is the only benefit of this job. Seeing their smiles when accomplishing goals or just doing something new for the first time is what makes this job worth while. Highly under staffed, underpaid, which all leads to a highly stressful place.
Bringing smiles to other peoples faces
underpaid for responsibilities given, few raises, no merit system
Assistant Representative (Former Employee) – Northville, NY – June 23, 2017
I would work with the mentally disabled to help them reach a level of autonomy that would enrich their lives. Daily activities were to help them with projects, work or otherwise, teach them to cook and clean, and other responsibilities around the house
Direct Support Staff Person (Former Employee) – Gloversville, NY 12078 – June 22, 2017
the job was all heart!! you have to be a good hearted person for this job, unlike the owner of this company now. ever since she took over, i couldn't stay there or ever want to go back! the folks you take care of will depend on you, but because of some/ most of the "laws" in place can't be fa-filled. also they don't hire full time.. but you work well over full time to make up for the company being under staffed.
they took most of the benefits away and don't hire full time!
Guest Services Representative (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 13, 2017
Fairly simple work and they work very well with your schedule. It has really helped push my customer service to be better without feeling awkward with it. Most everyone is very friendly and helpful. I've enjoyed most events I work.
Employment Specialist (Current Employee) – Gloversville, NY – March 31, 2017
Lexington has been my employer for most of my adult life and I feel blessed to be able to say that. Some of the people we support can be challenging but, at the end of the day when you go home knowing you helped someone grow, there's no better feeling!!
Centered around providing the best possible care for the people they support.

By far best job I've ever had and amazing management! The reward of just doing this job and knowing you are making a difference in a persons life means more then most would think. Lots of experience to gain from this employer.
Direct Support Staff (Former Employee) – Gloversville, NY – March 16, 2015
I learned a lot of valuable information and skill, having been employed here for more than 18 years. It helped me be prepared for caring for my brother and my husband who was sick six years before he went to heaven in 2010. The most enjoyable part of the day was working with different personalities and figuring out how to deal with each individual situation and it is also the hardest part of the job. The challenge of working with different situations that arise each day keeps the job interesting,
making a difference in someone elses life
the challenges of figuring out what the person needs in the course of each day.

Most counselors run about 2+ groups a day. There is a community feeling amongst the clients. When not seeing clients directly, counselors spend their time writing case notes, devising treatment – more...
Direct Support Staff (Current Employee) – Johnstown, NY – November 8, 2014
The type of work and the population I am able to work with is satisfactory and fulfills an emptiness , you never knew was missing. The company itself overall is good, but the pay is far from satisfactory.
