DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – January 30, 2018
Clocking in the computer, checking on clients, preparing to give daily medication, check communication book, check schedule of events for that day, Manager in the home is knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. The culture of the workplace is different everyday because the clients have disabilities. The hardest part is short notice or communicating effective with DSP of any changes. The most enjoyable part of the job is teaching new skill and having patients to hear the response of the clients. Accompanying the clients on medical, dental and mental which I serve as an advocate for the clients.

SRVS is a not safe workplace for community day base staff or clients. Srvs has very poor supervisor in the community base day. The clients that's in CBD are very sweet and lovable clients. The Direct Support Professional is unpaid for their service. The workplace for CBD at Srvs is very dangerous. The hardest part about working at Srvs is waking up and have to deal with the CBD supervisor. The most enjoyable day of CBD at Srvs is seeing the smiles on the clients face as the employees show them around the city showing them new things and teaching them how to be independent

The truth about SRVS is that the pay sucks you cannot survive on 9 an hour at all. They over work DSPs but do not appreciate them or give them credit when it’s due. The office is full of drama and they always mess up. Working here is a nightmare it is not worth it. A company full of black women and we get treated like The Help.
Not that bad, somewhat better than other companies

DSP'S aren't paid that much, over worked and under paid. However I love caring for people and take pride in it.. knowing that one day I'll want someone to care and treat me fairly rather to just work for a check.

It was a very delightful job because i was able to give genuine care . i was not there just for a pay check but to give an opportunity. Many people now today are not as caring as they should be and most of the time they under paid in this field.

I enjoyed working with the persons served the management can be a headache. The managers are people I've known since starting at Srvs but once yhete is any investigations they act as tho they do not know you and what integrity and character you posess. I wouldn't go back to work with this company of they gave me a job. I miss my clients.
Home Coordinate (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 22, 2017
A typical day at work, was making sure the paperwork was done in a timely manner, made sure the clients were taken care of to the best that I as an Home Coordinator could, far as shopping for them, clothes shopping, keeping the house up to code, and the staff doing their job to assist the clients the best that they can. The hardest part of my job was to get the staff to go the rules that were already in place, and they found hard to comply, and the most enjoyable part of my job was, seeing the clients smile, and looking healthy, dressed well, and going out into the community.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – February 24, 2017
I worked here four years and absolutely hated it. In the beginning it was fine but then they showed me who they really were. This is a terrible place to work unless you just want to get some experience under your belt. The managers are very unprofessional and talk about everyone to one another. Very messy company and a lot of sneaky stuff goes on there.
management is terrible, always investigations, you may be stuck at work if no one comes in, they lie about everything, the pay sucks, and they over work you.
