Company does not care
QSA (Former Employee), Lewisburg, WVJanuary 19, 2015
I have worked for this company on a couple of occasions. I can't speak for every location, but this location does not have the best interests of its clients or employees in mind. Management has a tendency to show favoritism towards employees they have known for years.

I wish I could give no stars, but it makes you select it.

Not a good place to work.
DCP (Former Employee), Huntington, WVJanuary 15, 2015
Pros: the pay is good.
Cons: no breaks, a lot of over-time
You have a lot of over-time. Sometimes you will have to work like two weeks straight without having a day off. There is also no breaks because of the type of work you're doing. I wouldn't recommend anyone working here unless you want to have no life except for your work.

Always something different.
Assisted Living Attendant (Former Employee), Evansville, INJanuary 14, 2015
A very emotionally exhausting job. Working with the mentally handicapped can forge some strong bonds between coworkers and patients, but it can also test the limits of what a person can cope with. Physically threatening, emotionally threatening, and verbally abusive clients are dealt with daily, with very little support. Most days spent alone with clients. A job that is great on it's good days, and terrible on it's bad.

Not hard work but horrible management
Child care advisor (Former Employee), laredo, txJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: easy type of work
Cons: poor management!!
Not hard type of work for the pay but management sucks. There's always 1 supervisor that tramples on everyone to get to the top. Micro manages and always talks about the same people who work hard to make sure she still has a job since its a state funded program.

NOOOOO
Caregiver (Current Employee), Houston,TXJanuary 1, 2015
The pay does not equal to work. It is just not worth it for the pay. No matter how long you work for the company, your pay will never go up. It is a dead end If you are DIRECT CARE STAFF. The good thing is the consumers, they can really make your day.

very bad place to work
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Former Employee), Elizabethtown, KYDecember 27, 2014
Pros: the individuals that you meet and care for are amazing
Cons: the corporate aspect/ front office of thie company is nothing but waste
Management plays favorites
Management will cover up any blatant rights restrictions as well as neglect
You Will be stuck at various homes without any relief for several shifts to include breaking the law ( 12 hrs. in a 24 hr period)
Management will lie to your face
Policies and Procedures are not followed on any given day.
You will not get paid what you work for

Being Unemployed was better.....
employment specialist (Former Employee), MemphisDecember 23, 2014
Pros: a check, no on-call, no mandatory ot
Cons: everything else
ResCare took over the Families First/workforce contract in the state of Tennessee in 2013. Where do I begin...
The project was poorly managed.
*the offices where staff were housed were not customer friendly (ie too small and no room for privacy) and some sites were a potential hazard.
*at some sites, ie rural locations, there were no activities to assign job seekers to other than job search.
*ResCare employees didn't even have basic office equipment (ie computers) until much later in the contract

 

The Benefits..SUCKED
*There was no maternity leave, you had to check in every 30 days. Your job was not secure nor was your leave paid.
*The insurance was terrible...by the time you pay the doctor bills...you might as well not have had insurance in the first place.
*Employees worked on holidays that job seekers were exempt from.

 

The Turnover...HIGH
*There were a slew of program managers and project directors...I cant blame them for leaving once they saw the ship sinking

 

Staff Training.....None
*Nuff said....the staff did not get any training other than reading from a powerpoint printout.

 

Now don't get me wrong....I'm not some vindictive, scorned former employee. This was REALLY HAPPENING!! I've read WONDERFUL reviews of this company. However, my experience was NOT. I believe that the reviews depend on the specific projects. I think the healthcare projects get good reviews. All other projects...NOT! All I'm going to say about ResCare is that for a self proclaimed multi-million dollar company, the business plan for this particular project seemed to be though out and executed – more... like armatures. The wages were low and the expectations of the employment specialist were not practical or obtainable. The accountability for the job seeker's success rested on the employment specialist and not the job seekers themselves. In conclusion, I am glad that this project is OVER in my state and I would NEVER EVER EVER EVER work for ResCare EVER again in my entire life. Ever. Enjoy your day!

Poor management
Residential Coordinator (Former Employee), Benton, KYDecember 18, 2014
The management was poor. The ability to hire proper staff that cared about the clients was poor.
