To say this place is unorganized is an understatement. Management was hateful and counterproductive. I was hired when a new location was started. There was no training, no support, and I was given no tools for the job. I was the office manager of an office with no phone, no computer, no printer or fax?? My concerns were ignored or met with criticism by the district manager. It was a nightmare. There was no teamwork at all. I felt very disrespected. There seemed to be a lack of good planning or execution across the board. The worst aspect was that there was very little passion expressed for helping the kids, it was all about the bottom line and profits. It was the most unprofessional place I have ever worked.
I am a very dedicated worker, but this job never let me reach my fullest potential. I was overworked as an Office Manager. Although I knew my job very well and for the most of it performed all duties and task that were given me, I never found a balance.

This company is not a good choice for one's professional developement. Management is not professional and is a crew of close friends that stick togehter and do not manage or supervise professionally or fairly. It is difficult to express your concerns because the corporate office believes every story that management tells!!!
Certified Foster Parent (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – September 6, 2017
The reward of being a foster parent cannot be measured by compensation. This is a 24 hour job, you know this prior to becoming a foster parent. The most enjoyable part of this job is the simple little things , like teaching a child the days of the week.
This was not a good company to work for they have no support for there staff I was assaulted by the youth and pressed charges against them and when I did the company dropped the charges and didn't place it in the youth files for court
Home Manager (Former Employee) – Jackson, TN – June 3, 2017
I worked for this company 4 months and was never trained , I was given the run around about being trained for the position I was hired for. never worked for a company were there is no orientation! Supervisor was very unprofessional, nasty attitude no respect for others what so ever! To sum it up how bad it was working for this company I resign without another job to go to and that's something I've never done before! But was the best decision ever!
Omnivisions is a wonderful environment to begin your career. They lack competitive benefits or salary. There is little opportunity to advance. While regional positions have flexible schedules the caseloads and expectations are very high.
Lead Teacher (Former Employee) – Elizabethton, TN – February 9, 2017
Omni Visions is a good company to work for although they require an abundant amount of training no matter the position you are in. The culture is more like a family than a work environment. The group worked together to make sure that our girls had all the tools they needed for success.
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – December 3, 2016
Working for this company takes up majority of your life. so that's no time for family, school or a personal life at all. the management was horrible and did not listen to the concerns of the employees. co-workers where not the best but it was bearable, working here you are under paid and over worked.
DSP (Former Employee) – Greeneville, TN – October 23, 2016
Drama filled. Favorites are picked. Not enough pay. Rude employees and had a rat problem they wouldn't take care of. It's not a fun place to work. You always are takes about . They don't care about their staff
Learn to think on your feet very quickly to numerous situations. Management ignored staff's concerns regarding safety and conditions of house including No light in living room and overhead light in kitchen for 3 months.
FOSTER CARE RESOURCE COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – August 29, 2016
Omni Visions is a very flexible and productive workplace, where I interact with all youths of different age range, foster parents, birth families, school staff, health providers, court liaisons, and other professionals that assist in treatment planning. I learned that there are many shortcomings but you would have to self reflect to find ways to improve.
Its hard to really think of a place to begin, so ill just start with the job in itself. At times its rewarding, knowing that you can be that positive influence in a childs life that really gives them a better outlook on life, and at other times every bad thing that's happened to the child in their life comes out and you feel as if you're going to have a nervous breakdown. I worked at the one of the academys, and I can promise you, I seen every employee there crying or on the verge of a breakdown more than once. That's the job for you though, unfortunately on top of the everyday stress from the job, the biggest cause of stress was corporate. This is the only company I have ever worked for that I can say with all honesty, you don't know if you'll have a job tomorrow. I watched as many of my coworkers and friends lost their jobs in one day, and I'm not talking about a few or anything, I'm talking corporate comes in that morning, and without a word or warning to anyone, fires over 10 people (at a facility that only had about 20), including our facility director. Just after Christmas I might add, so everyone's saving was probably spent on their kids, seeing there was no warning of this to anyone. All because corporate wanted to switch over to caring for girls instead of boys. But none the less I survived the cut, and when things opened back up in a short couple of months, we all had hope again for new beginning. But with absolutely zero support from corporate, we as a community were left in the dark, and basically had to fend for ourselves. That was back in march, now in the lastmore... 5 months the company has gone so far downhill that I don't see a way that they can recover. all but 1 employee quit, and I know that person has been looking for another job. Now corporate is trying to send in their own to try to recover but I believe its far too little, too late. The group of people I had the privilege to work with were amazing, but unfortunately with no backing from corporate it wouldn't seem to make a difference.
The one thing this job really taught me, is how truly important it is to believe in your company, to truly have job security. But unfortunately you won't find any of that with this company.
I hope this helps in your decision. There was too much to even list, but I'll leave you with this, I've stayed in touch with most of my previous coworkers, some are at new jobs, some are still unemployed, but all of them say they are much happier now than they ever were at this job. Just let that sink in before you apply.
If I could've given 0 stars on some of those I would've, Job Security and Culture definitely would've been 0'sless
You see how a company shouldn't be
Untrustworthy Corporate, Pay, Stress, No promise in a future, Just not a company you can build a life with, Zero stability
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Jackson, TN – July 28, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job are the clients I worked with, and the activities we as the staff could enjoy with them and the birthdays we the staff could enjoy with them. And my co-workers are the best people to work with and enjoyed being around them
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – June 28, 2016
Listen don't make this place your career, it's not great but if you go into this job with high hopes then it's all on you, the Co workers are good people the clients are great (adults) first year make 8.25 second year make 8.50 and your third year you make 9.50 an hour not all houses make you work overtime now when it snows yes you have to stay if your on your shift but if you have 4 wheel drive it wouldn't be a problem. Benifits suck but if you don't go to the doctor once a month for check up then you then you don't have to worry, upper management sucks but if you do the work right they won't bother you. (It's not a hard job at all) now the job is time consuming but if you're going whatever shift you agree to then keep to your word, also make your plans a 2 weeks in advance that will save you time fussing with other staffs. Like I said don't make this job your career because in a the long run you will end up leaving in 5 months anyways. You get Paid every weeks Saturdays are the end of your pay periods. And they do hold you a check back if that helps.
Not to bad once you get to know the clients and the staff(ones working with you)
Upper management are tough, unless your nurse yoy wont get paid much, theres a 3 levels of pay. You top out at 9.50 when yhere for years. Benifits suck to.
