Coworkers are great and the individuals supported were nice. Supported individuals in their home. Made meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Assisted with personal cares like showers and toileting. Built very good relationships with everyone here.
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Faribault, MN – October 17, 2017
I have worked as a Direct Support Professional for 18 years, for 4 different companies in 2 different states. One of the companies was a smaller one, the others were large (over 100 employees). Of the larger companies, LSS has been the best large company I have worked for. They have an emphasis on both person-centered services and on developing employees' skills and interests. I have appreciated the learning opportunities, and the feedback I get from supervisors. They also emphasize a work-life balance by offering full-time employees the most generous leave package I have seen in this field. While most holidays are not paid due to the 24/7 nature of this work, full-time employees receive floating holidays in addition to PTO.
I'm very happy here, and I encourage anyone interested in this field to give LSS a try.
The people we serve are amazing, coworkers are fantastic, variety of tasks throughout the work day so it isn't boring.
