Dsp (Former Employee) – La Grande, OR – August 28, 2017

Caregiver (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – July 31, 2017
at rise i would clock in start the list of to dos and i would spend time with clients. then i would document the things we did. I would dispense meds at cretin times and I would check my email to se if co workers had messaged me. I learned a lot about house work and the to do list how to have persistence. the management would give me wacky hours. the culture was distant. the hardest part was not becoming friends with clients who want friends. the position was enjoyable because the environment was creative and balanced. I learned how to document correctly and dispense meds correctly as well.
Fun & rewarding but very frustrating & poorly managed
Education Services Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Luis Obispo, CA – July 25, 2017
There is a lot of office drama, a lot of office rivalry, and a lot of negativity in many of the departments. The work they do is fantastic, and it is all too needed. Their crisis team is amazing, and they do their best to manage the other departments.
Staff, Advisor (Current Employee) – South Jordan, UT – July 15, 2017
Rise is an amazing place to work. They insure that you are comfortable when working. They provide the proper training classes and certificates for you to be equipped to work with the clients. You basically get paid to have fun while meeting incredible individuals.

Residential Specialist (Current Employee) – Warrensburg, MO – May 2, 2017
During a typical day at work I would administer medication, work on outcomes, get residents where they needed to go, clean facility, organize events, documentation of everything in the house, and facilitate a positive environment the residents could thrive in. I have learned a lot of patience, how to guide stressful situations when residents become angry with one another. I have learned what the residents enjoy doing and how to engage in order to make relationships with them. My management is awesome and is always making improvements for the residents. The residents I predominately work with are all fairly high functioning, and have never had to deal with staff abuse. Hardest part of the job is leaving. I love being there and its sad when I can't. Most enjoyable part of the job is watching the residents achieve a goal.
My favorite part about working here was the clients. They were the only reason I was there as long as I was. Management was joke. Never helpful, but expected so much all the time. I worked the summer program, which was actually so much fun. The only thing I hated was that I had to use my own car and had to travel from Provo to Payson to pick up clients frequently and my car was old. They do reimburse you per mile, but with an old car like mine, it almost wasn't worth it. But summer program was so fun. We did fun things with our summer group. I would even try to work here again but all the meetings and the terrible management here have stopped me. I do miss my clients though.

Scorekeeper, front desk, food court (Former Employee) – Rockwall, TX – December 14, 2016
The one thing that made this job amazing were the customers and my coworkers. This job was difficult to me because it lacked communication between the sport directors and front desk managers. Information was not passed down so only a few employees knew certain changes had been made, so when a customer would ask an employee a question they had not been given the proper answer to, it would create a negative environment where the employee felt they had made a mistake. Breaks were not given, I personally had to work full days when we were either under hired or no one could show up. I learned that I work harder when I am given a job that is challenging and you can develop skills and move up in the business. When i was a scorekeeper I noticed I worked harder then when I was at front desk. My coworkers were all very nice, and everyone got along. There was never any issues or drama between my coworkers and myself. The hardest part of my job was not only the fact that at front desk we had so many responsibilities, but most of us were underpaid for the things we accomplished and we did not even get a thank you or recognition when we were doing a good job. Many things flew under the radar from my manager but many mistakes were made that I personally had to bring to my managers attention. But in the end it was a great job to have had for almost two years. I made so many connections with the customers I would see every week and got to know many of them on a personal level and that is what a job should really be about, the customers.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – November 7, 2016
I worked front desk for two years, I learned so much while in that position. I worked closely with HR, Payroll, Directors, and Team leads. I was the go to person for almost all questions, if I didn't have the answer I was able to point someone in the right direction. The position allowed me super multi-tasking skills to come into play.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ and St. George, Utah – September 21, 2016
Rise overall is a wonderful company however the Tucson management is not truthful and not fair. Have to be a good friend to the head person in Tucson to get anywhere. Always criticizes you if your not on the good list of the top manager.
New director 7 times since I worked for the company for 9 years
