Residential Manager (Current Employee), Marion, INAugust 19, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: on call
There is no typical day at work. Every day I have a goal of wlhat I want to get done or/need to get done. You have to go with the flow and be quick on your feet. I start off at the office 8 am check my emails get payroll done on Mondays. Answer my work cell phone for calls about van issues, staff issues, client issues, schedule appointments and meetings/trainings, – more... communicate with any staff, clients, guardians, co-workers, or supervisors. Go to any meetings, traingings, or appiontments that are scheduled for the day. Make sure all locations have the proper schedules and are staffed. Make sure all staff are following State Laws and Company Policies. Work together as a team with my fellow Residential Managers and Supervisor's to meet the Company's goals.

I have learned working in a large office enviroment you get a lot of different views and ideas from co-workers. It has been a great learning experince and I have learned a lot from my peers and supervisors. – less

Love the clients but the pay is terrible.
Support Associate (Former Employee), Bedford, INAugust 16, 2014
Pros: clients
Cons: pay
I loved going to work everyday because I loved the clients and most of the staff I worked with. The pay isn't good enough to keep a person there unless you are higher up in the company.

Adds for Positions are a Scam!!!
Residential manager (Former Employee), Huntington, WVAugust 13, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
I applied to Res-care for a House Manager position, I arrived in a suit and tie to the interview, 1st mistake everyone there looked like street people and they all looked at me like I was a FED. After siting and being stared out for 30 mins I was met by one of the managers who interviewed me (Homosexual I might add) I was walked back to the interview – more... room where the other manager (Looked like a Bar Bouncer) the interview began, I had my professional resume in hand showing my 4 college degree with one being a Masters degree. the interview went forward for around 5 to 10 minutes basically questions about my job history and education. I had worked for various health agencies in the past so I was perfectly qualified for a Home Manager position However this was not the case they proceeded to try to talk me into direct care positions that paid $8.50 an hour. I at that point thank the gentlemen for their time and informed them they need to change their HR tactics because advertising a management position as a direct care job is unethical and misleading. I soon realized after some research that this company has such a huge turnover rate and bad reputation that they have exhausted their labor pool and have to resort to these types of HR hiring practices. ( I should have asked for my gas money back) (Look elsewhere this company is a joke) – less

I was on-call/part time CNA. I had one on one resident to take care and i had fun working with him. Daughter of the resident was pleased about the care i provided to her father. Safety and fall precaution are very much observe to the resident. He is a dementia/chronic progressive alzheimer's disease. I enjoyed giving appropriate grooming as part of – more... his ADL's. Sometimes, he has a bad appetite but i encourage him to eat something and I am happy if he has good appetite because he is loosing weight and offer him snacks frequently. – less

Don't bother
Youth Worker (Former Employee), Benton, KYAugust 7, 2014
Pros: interacting with some neat residents
Cons: house managers, no pay raise
The ResCare in Benton has so much crooked staff that isn't even funny. Most of the main bosses are nice and care for their clients. However, most of the residential managers are horrible. They don't stick up for their staff and some find ways to get the teenage residents in trouble.

corrupt
team lead (Former Employee), south bend, inAugust 5, 2014
Pros: consumers/home like work setting
Cons: everything else!
Worked for this company for two years. Had to take house manager position in order to keep my hours and to rise above $8/hr as they give NO RAISES. The company has a tendency to make you feel under appreciated, but will work you to death. Always short staffed and huge turnover. No call off policy whatsoever...if you have an emergency and need time off...good – more... luck. Consumer abuse and neglect very high risk. Staff cliques and friendships between supervisors and staff make working conditions almost unbearable. – less

A learning experience
Caregiver (Former Employee), Llano, TXAugust 3, 2014
Pros: the learning experience of working with special needs individuals, the ability to transfer to different locations
Cons: no room to grow in the company, no possibility of pay increase
Rescare was the first company I worked at that involved clients with special needs, overall working for this company improved my character and job performance as an individual from helping myself to helping others. I would work any shift that was necessary including morning, afternoon and midnight; my job requirements were to assist and supervise the – more... consumers, cook for them when needed along with cleaning and provide medical assistance with their medications. I was not involved with management during the duration of my employment however when I had questions or concerns, I was met with answers almost immediately. My coworkers and I worked as a team, we became a family environment to the consumers and helped each other when needed. The hardest part of my job was walking away from the consumers that I had grown to love over the years as my own friends, along with the inability to grow in the company. The most enjoyable part of my job was always working with the consumers and what they taught me over the years in regards to those less fortunate than I. – less

Dependant Care Specialist (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLAugust 2, 2014
Pros: preparing there meals three timesdaily
Cons: there are no breaks in a job like this it's a 24 hr watch
Each consumer is different in there own way some need more care than others, helping with getting dress bathe . I've learned that we are all unique n our own way meaning some need more attention than most and that's the way they were born not by choice but by being special, it also takes special people to work with these special people the hardest part – more... of the job i would say is them not being able to let you no that they need things as in using the restroom – less
