Disposable human (Former Employee) – Westchrster – August 7, 2016
If you are looking for an employee that will suck you dry and not make you feel appreciated then you have come to the right place. They burn you out and then they hold it against you when you just can't keep up anymore. Big Management has no idea what they doing but they keep doing it. The big boss looks down on everyone else like their garbage
High burn out rate, nasty high management, too much justice center
Management (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – October 26, 2015
Richmond was once a great agency to work for. Currently the morale is extremely low. Improvements are greatly needed in upper management. The agency doesn't appreciate hard dedicated workers. The CEO is not open to new ideas if they are not her own.
Great pay, benefits, and flexibility
No support, rude admininstrative staff, company doesnt promote growth
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – October 5, 2015
residents are very lovable. staff are very nice. team work is always available. the management is horrible. they need to appreciate their staff more. the hardest part of the job is staying away from negativity. the most enjoyable part of the job is when we have our days of getting along. i have learned that not all workplaces is easy.

Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Current Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – August 23, 2015
Good start for those who are new to the field. Hours are 8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday. Pay is not good for the work that must be expected. Paid time off and sick time is accrued biweekly. No paid holidays must use PTO. The other houses in the company pay more and not as strict.
Good hours, Great staff, good experience for a person new to this field.
1 /2 hour lunch no paid holidays, point system for lateness, staff treated like children
Assisted residents (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – June 10, 2015
Productive Patience Productive A Team Being with the residents Leaving My time was productive and I enjoyed it. The residents taught me a lot about themselves and myself. To be able to help residents who cannot help themselves is very rewarding.
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Yonkers, NY – May 12, 2015
My day at work begins at 2pm and end most of the time at 10pm. I usually l get a bus to go and pick up residents from their day program. I have learned a lot about how non verbal people communicate. Some of the management leaves something to be desired but are not bad people. My co -workers are a diverse group and are very helpful. the hardest part of the job is watching a resident suffer in pain because they are unable to tell you what is wrong. the most enjoyable part of this job is seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter.
Direct Service Professional (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – May 11, 2015
The jobs mission is wonderful but the actual work enviornment is terrible, The co workers are miserable and they drag you down in their misery.Especially at Day Program North ...Save yourself and if you MUST work here use this job as a stepping stone and not a career.
Administrative Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – May 6, 2015
The days are busy with helping individuals with all types of disabilities. I've learn to love and appreciate people who need the most help. The staff was great, but turnover was a lot. The hardest part was the calling out. Seeing the individuals smile.
Productive and great Place to work and learn more about lives with people with Disabilities
Dietary Aide / Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Yonkers, NY – September 21, 2014
Richmond is a place of caring and patient workers. They help you understand how people with Developmental Disabilities live and how to help care for them. You have a great team of management to guide you through all work and learning. i enjoyed working with my co workers who kept the residents feel like their own children. the hardest part of my job is when a resident passes away, it hurts as if they are your own family member. you care for them and get to know them and love them so it hurts when they go. the most enjoyable part of my job is walking into work and the residents smile makes you ready to work.
IRA Residence Manager (Current Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – January 26, 2014
Agency has High Standards. They expect a lot from their employees. They provide the necessary tools for the job. I enjoy working because the Agency promotes Team Work. They are also Unionized. The hardest part of my job is trying to cope with all the responsibilities that are thrown out on a daily basis with immediate deadline that gives no time to complete the everyday responsibilities. The enjoyable part of my job is to see that all the individuals under my care are well provided for and that they are happy.
A lot of experience in various areas of Human Services
Richmond provides well needed assistance to the disabled population which is quite commendable.
