Pay rate does not equate to the work you put in!
Direct Care Worker (Current Employee) – Ohio – August 8, 2017
The amount of work you do for the LITTLE amount you get paid is astonishing. The hours are ok, sometimes there is OT available and sometimes there isn't which is great. Paid holidays are only paid if you work them between 12am and 1159pm that day. The pay sucks, the people are great and the job is rewarding most times, but I don't recommend it unless you truly do not care about anything but the people, which is what the job is about. The co-workers and some of the management are wonderful, some suck, like any corporate place. Expect 2nd or 3rd shift hours, unless you are a manager or upper manager then you'll work an ungodly amount of hours for salary and benefits on call pretty much all the time. Once again, people you help and coworkers are great, hours are ehhh, pay sucks, so it depends on what you are looking for in a job. This one was less than what I expected with my previous experiences in the same field of work. All pay starts at same rate regardless of your experience and educational attainment, so a hs and college graduate get paid same amount regardless for each position. $9.25/hr SUCKS for the amount of dedication and love you put in, especially with years of experience.
OT when available is great
