Good place to work for but not enough hours provided to work.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Chantilly, Virginia – February 19, 2015
Rescare is a good place to work because of the flexibility. They do not provide set hours. It is a great job to work if you are in school and need prn work hours or part time. It is not so good to work for them when you need guarantee 8 hours a day or set work schedules.
I worked in a management position. This company has a severe lack of training for all levels of all departments. Don't expect to ever receive confirmation of a job well done or even a basic cost of living raise. This company expects you to work 24/7 and it still will not be enough. If you have any other option, TAKE IT.
Worker (Former Employee) – Texas – February 23, 2017
Working for this company should basically be a stepping stone for recent high school graduates. Upper management is rude and disrespectful. The paid grade $7.25 vs the work load and long hours isn't worth it. Some of the clients who have behavioral issues will/can lash out at you and your NOT supposed to defend yourself. Your dealing with bio hazardous bodily fluids daily. In order to pay for insurance you'd have to work overtime. They keep and employ staff members who do absolutely nothing pertaining to their job because of who they or their family members know. This company doesn't care about the clients. They are just pay checks to them!
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Bradley, IL – August 12, 2016
The hours needed to work are ridiculous, they have no passion for their employees. You will be required to go above and beyond for the company and receive no recognition for doing so. No compensation for wages lost when they close a house for unknown reasons. Management is rude, unorganized, and unprofessional. I wouldn't recommend any one work for this company. This is by far the WORST place to work and in my opinion, needs to closed down.
Good job to start your career, use only as a stepping stone to better career options
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Oceanside, CA – June 10, 2016
Hired on as a case manager in 2015. Everything started off well until I continuously got more and more case loads to the point where I was extremely overwhelmed. Management seemed unsympathetic to the concerns raised by fellow case managers as to the limited amount of time we could give to our customers since our case load volume was so high. Since I was hired on as temp-to-perm I was continuously told I would eventually be hired on full time. However there were unforeseen budget cuts and I was let go without much notice. Altogether it's a good job for Individuals who are just starting their career in the social service field. However, this is not a company you want to be with for more than 2-3 years. Good stepping stone job. Nothing more.
Youth Case Manager (Former Employee) – Chickasha, OK – June 2, 2016
This company is one of THE worst social service providers I've worked with. Management provides no training, refuses to communicate, plays favorites, are back stabbing, and shouldn't be trusted. If you're a parent and don't have anyone to help you put if your children become sick, don't think this company cares or will work with you. All they care about is the bottom line. Management gives mixed messages, and leaves you constantly guessing, then you're reprimanded for their lack of communication and guidance. This job was honestly a complete waste of my time. I want to help people, but all this company cares about is meeting their numbers. HR is extremely unprofessional and sent threatening emails to all group members. We were made to clock out for lunch, even when we were made to take "working lunches." This company is a joke!
it was a job
too many to list. Low pay for the amount of qork you do. no advancement, no raises, and not good benefits.
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Winchester, KY – July 1, 2016
I've worked here for a few years and I can honestly say that CAKY Winchester puts the individuals first and fight hard for the employees to get raises and they fight to get show appreciation. We get shirts, hoodies, thank you cards. The office people don't just work over us or from behind their desk, they get into the trenches with us and work beside us and aren't too good to help. Most of the people in the office were DSP's, if not all. I can't imagine working anywhere else.
The people, the team-work, making a difference
pay isn't that great, $8.25 for most starting positions
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – St. Paul, MN – July 13, 2016
This company doesn't care about their employees. They undercut your pay. They don't care about your personal life or any difficulties your are having, i.e. tragedies in your family, etc. If you are having difficulties learning the job they do not care and will get rid of you on a whim if it benefits them. They are out for themselves! If you complain to the district manager it accomplishes nothing.
Co workers and clients were mostly great
pay and benefits were low and upper management was aweful!
Direct Care Associate (Former Employee) – Seymour, IN – August 6, 2016
I have worked for company for over 6 years, I would have loved to have been able to walk away along time ago but I love my clients. I normally work 16 hour shifts 6 days a week and the one day i work an 8 im treated badly.ResCare offers no raises and the only way you can move up is if your family is already in the office.
If you want to work a million hours you can make good money
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Taylorsville, NC – January 3, 2017
Management plays favorites and will let certain people get away with anything even things that aren't allowed and if those of us that aren't a favorite go over her head and tell her manager then they take it out on us and punish us. Like she would give you the 2 hardest clients to take care of for a week. My manager would let people bring food and would eat herself but would not let me and a few others simply cause she didn't like us. Its one of those cases where the hardest working people get stepped on and the lazy good for nothings get rewarded. She finally got tired of me questioning why others were allowed to do things I wasn't and fired me. If your put in a manger position you should treat everyone the same. Goes to show you, you can't always trust your manager
Good hours, loved the clients, some co workers are great
Management plays favorites, pay needs to be better for the work you do, they will fire you in a heartbeat if you disagree with them
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Parkersburg, WV – June 29, 2016
No raises. I worked there for a year before i had enough PTO to take one day off. They will work you to death and when you start bucking them they will drag you into some bs abuse/neglect case just to get rid of you. The state should shut it down!!!! Crystal Akers talks to staff like they are trash. Executive Director sits in office and eats, does nothing else.
Pretty relaxed environment for the most part. Very rewarding work.
Direct Care Professional (Current Employee) – Huntington, WV – November 4, 2016
I help I/DD adults, in an ICF-GH, with their activities of daily living. Every day is a new adventure. My direct managers, in the home, are pretty awesome. The management at the main office is pretty fair although they are sometimes hard to reach. My immediate co-workers are the best in the business. We set the bar and all other sites in this agency strive to be as good as we are. The hardest part of the job is probably the long hours coupled with occasional explosive behaviors. This job is very rewarding when you get to see your consumers/clients finally put into action something that you have taught them. My absolute favorite part of the job is the bond that I have created with my consumers. They look forward to seeing their staff every day because, for some of them, their staff are the only family they have.
Laid back atmosphere, meals, and flexibilty.
Lowest paid, long hours, expensive health coverage, violent behaviors.
