Not the best place to work for.
SA (Former Employee), Jeffersonville, INApril 29, 2014
Pros: clients
Cons: wages, benefits, over worked, unappreciated
The management is really unorganized. There is no help or support.
In order to be considered for an advancement, its on a "Who you know" basis.
Very very very unorganized. There is no appreciation for the workers that actually want to work. Instead, they will just work you till you can't work anymore. And fire you for sleeping on the job when you've – more... worked 20+ hours in a roll. If it wasn't for the clients, it would be the worse place to work.
Over worked, under paid. Benefits are horrible. And absolutely no raises what so ever. NONE.
But if you're just looking for something that will work for now, it might be okay for you.
They treat their employees like they are all replaceable. They aren't competitive when it comes to wage either.
So far one of the worse places I've worked.
They train you for a week, and pretty much throw you into the homes and say: "Good luck" and that's about it. – less

very poorly structured and not employee friendly
talent development consultant (Former Employee), NCApril 24, 2014
Working for this company was more stressful than it needed to be. There was little to no instruction. Their employees are not considered to be assets. One word to describe this company "nightmare"

attentive and caring workplace
Habilitation Training Specialist (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKApril 24, 2014
Pros: rewarding work.
Cons: less pay, benefits
My typical day at work is arriving on time getting things prepared for the day checking on my clients before administering medication, after meds preparing morning meals and showers getting my clients ready for the daily routine at the end of my work day I have completed all of my work task with the best of my ability, so that when shift change there – more... is no confusion between co-workers or management. I have worked with co workers who fail to do there job and there are many who did a great job. There can be missed communication failure to document and you trying too provide care for the clients and now you have to make phone calls to management as to what to do because of not communicating thru documentation. the most enjoyable part of this job is when my clients needs are meet and they are happy. – less

Productive, detail oriented, peaceful workplace with adults who are rewardingly different
Direct Support Specialist (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCApril 24, 2014
Pros: working with them makes us feel like a family at home.
Cons: the pay and benefits could be a bit better
On a typical day my coworkers and I pick up the consumers from the workshop they attend. We take them to their comfortable home where they have an afternoon snack and take their pm meds. Some attainable goals are ran and they are ready for a community outing. Sometimes to the park, movies, Walmart, or even out to a nice restaurant for dinner. I learned – more... how to be patient with the various personalities and behaviors. Each coworker manages two consumers on a daily basis assisting them also with household skills such as cooking, laundry, showering. They love to be given undivided attention and they recognize when a person is genuine. My coworkers and I are genuine so our day runs very smooth because we love the people we work with and for.
The hardest part of the job is when one of our consumers is having a behavior and is hurting him or herself and we are attempting to redirect and its not working very well.
Other than that everything else is pretty enjoyable. It is a very rewarding feeling when I am able to help those who need help have a great and wonderful day. – less

Terrible office staff
Direct Support Staff (Former Employee), Elkins, West VirginiaApril 17, 2014
The home supervisor and the upper management that worked in the office would not take the employees concerns seriously. They would just dismiss them all and not try to do very much investigating about anything.

QSA
Quality Support Associate (Former Employee), Buckhannon, WVApril 17, 2014
Pros: help the patients
Cons: tiring hours, short-pay for what the job intitled
I got to help give care to MR patients that couldn't do much things on their own. Which was very satisfying knowing I was helping them and making their day just a little bit better. I truly loved working here, but left for a better opportunity. The only bad thing was that at times if someone didnt show for their shift you would have to be there for – more... 16 hours +. – less
