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.
Unstable work environments , unorganized and low pay
Patient Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Tennessee – January 25, 2017
SRVs needs to train their departmen managers. They play the buddy system.The managers are too laid back. They don't follow the companies policies, just make up rules as they go. The pay is very low. The work hours are incertain. They call you at the brink of the hour for assignments as though you dont have a personnal life. The pay is very low for the mileage considering the wear and tear of your vechicle. They dont pay workman compensation if they can aviod it.Usually they do.The job is very risky with personnal injuries , no one seems to care.In reality the job is not stable. You have over 40 test to make, which doesn't mean a thing. The only good thing that I could say is that you are helping those who cant help themselves , but perhaps working at SRVs just dont benefit adults with families, bills and religion. You can't mention your fairh. I don't recommand this job to be honest.
Helping those in need
Unprofessional management, low pay, risk of injuries, lack workman compensation for part-time workers.
One on One Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – December 20, 2016
Shelby Residential and Vocational Services is a good company I love to work with the mental and disability clients at the company. helping them find work and do everyday thing was a joyful experience for me.
I love what i do its just that i feel what i do i know that i am suppose to make way more money for it and they are a job that don't give raises. also it is a family type of organization you will never be able to get ahead there.
Good company who provide great opportunities for people with Intellectual and Developmental disabilities.Associates share happy times while providing services for clients that they cannot do for themselves. In most cases, the residents become a part of their own families.
DSP (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – May 26, 2016
The clients are the only reason I fought to stay at SRVS for 4 years. It is not a pleasant atmosphere to remain in if you want to better yourself. The management is not ran very well and your co-workers all fight each other to make themselves look good. As stated before, the clients are the life of this job.
experience with adults with mental and intellectual disabilities
Great opportunity to gain experience in the medical field
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – November 20, 2015
Great opportunity to gain experience in the medical field. You can start out entry level and grow with the company. You will work with old and young people. Some are more independent than others. All of this which will help you to grow in experience if you desire a career in the medical field.
Experience of working with a diverse group of people
Home Supervisor (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – July 28, 2015
This company should be a last resort and desperate move. Management are very unprofessional. I've worked for this company over 5 years and haven't had a raise. Others get raises in this company except the DSP's. It's all about the buddy system, you may be better qualified for a position but they'll pick their unqualified buddy instead. I could go on and on. This company SUCKS!!!
Paid vacations, working with clients
No lunch breaks, no raises, messy managers, very unprofessional company that don't care about dsp's
