Respite Caregiver (Former Employee), Saint Clairsville, OH – October 13, 2014
Pros: free lunch or dinner
Cons: house management
I really enjoyed the clients when I worked for ResCare and in my house we had awsome coworkers for the most part . Which is very important! We would take our clients out into the public and go see the olgebay festival of lights, to the casino, out to eat in PA. It was a fun job. Management I would rank on the low end. I needed hours off for school and – more... they weren't very leniet about working around my school schedule. Other than that it was a great facility to work for. – less
Direct Support Position (Current Employee), Greencastle, IN – October 13, 2014
Pros: we have to at least take a no thank you bite
Cons: working short but it happens
I love working with adult or youth people with behavioral problems. I love to do reactive treatment, assist, or even complete a task that a consumer can't complete. I take my consumer out in the community and treat them just like nothing wrong with them. I enjoy being out in the community because the consumer is so happy, like shopping, movies, and – more... getting along with others. The hardest part of the job if consumer's fighting each other or going after staff. – less

Direct Care Staff/Medical Assistant (Current Employee), Manteca, CA – September 16, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, great experience
Cons: benefits not great, shift times irregular
Love working with the clients but management can be very unorganized. Will get a lot of experience in mental health but the pay sucks. Hardest part of the job is dealing with client behaviors but does not happen too often.
Although it is a world known company, the way the employees are treated is not feasible.
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee), Albany, GA – September 14, 2014
Pros: great experience
Cons: no rewards and no opportunity to advance.
ResCare is world wide and a typical day starts at 8:00 a.m.. The phones starts ringing off the hook. All the Coordinators have their own territory in which the nurses aides are sent out to perform the daily tasks as a CNA or PCA. When they can't go to the work sites it is a scramble to found someone to cover. The rest is scheduling,answering the phones – more... and most important payroll. I have learned that you have to stay on top of your work because if not, you will pay the price around payroll when you have to get the employees time right so that they can get paid. The Upper Management is a problem because when the company makes money instead of giving the employees a piece of the pie upper management get huge bonuses that they don't share. That's a huge problem! My co-workers are very hard working individuals and they assert themselves accordingly and the deserve so much more than what ResCare offer. The hardest part of the job is when you as an employee sees that you and your co-workers are working hard for the company as a team in order to get things done and although it is recognized there aren't any rewards. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the team come together and accomplish certain goals. – less
Caregiver/Companion (Former Employee), Pleasant Hill, CA – September 10, 2014
The most unprofessional place I have ever been or worked. The girls who worked in the office would only call who they liked most for clients. There was one male in the office and all of the girls were having different relations with him and did not hide it even in the office or in front of clients and potential clients. People were hired based on how – more... close they were to the H.R. manager. She not only did not check for caregiving or medical schooling or backgrounds but she gave the correct answers to the hiring test during the individual interview. – less
