Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Current Employee), Memphis, TN – October 8, 2014
Working at SRVS on a typical day is very excited once i get clocked in and start my day.I have a client that enjoy me reading him a book,his favorite book.He always be the first to greet me at the door with a smile he is always excited to see me come.I have had a few of my coworkers say he stands at the door and be looking out the window for me and – more... when someone say she coming in later on today he go sit down with his favorite book and look at it.I have had coworkers say they have offer to read him his book and he refuse to let them,they have always said he don't want no one reading that book but me.They say when I'm off and someone tell him I'm off for the day he always sit alone with his book and look at it and smile.Being an employee at SRVS has really made me feel like I'm making a difference in someone life,I really enjoy my job and what i do on a day to day basic.I always go home and say well i made someone day again,when i see someone feeling down or looking down i always have the right things to say to them to make them feel happy again.The hardest part of my job is leaving every day once i complete my shift i know i have to go home without my clients and i always think about them and hope to see them when i come back the next day or two.The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing i have made a difference in someone day to make it better for them letting them feel the love and care i have and letting them know I'm here for them each and every day.I have learned a lot working with clients and people with a disability knowing i can help in any way i can i feel i am a great care giver and i feel with giving your all to someone who's disable will make them feel much happier and loved not only by there family members but were ever they may be to get support and care.I really enjoy being able to give a help an hand to someone who need me.I thank God every day for my straight and knowledge to make a difference in someone life. – less

Pros: the clients and coworkers
Cons: the worst management ever
This place management steals and tries to cover it up. How do you still from people in need. Management belittes the employees. The workers in the house are very nice along with the house managers. There is no place to go hr is no help at all when management overstep boundaries. That is why it is very important to have a tape recorder when speaking – more... with management their to catch them in they lies – less
I loved working here because i love helping people.

A typical day at work was great here due to the fact I was always assisting someone with there daily living. I learned how to work with special need people. The management was good. My co-workers were good genuine people. The job wasn't hard. The most enjoyable part was knowing that I made the people that I assisted days easier.

Pros: helping those in need
Cons: no concern for employess at all
i worked there for 6 months, the women in the offices are unprofessional and ghetto, the only enjoyment i had was working with the clients that i served. its almost like a place designed to set you up to fail and the employees are full of drama. so i quite. this job will consume your whole day and then your still under appreciated by upper management, – more... the more you give the more they want ( the upper management that is) – less

I had have to learn many things on my own as far as my service recepiants. You have to do many things at one time and you must be on your game. I have my bachelors now and I see no advancement available or anyone coming to me for any type of advancement.

Pros: excellent inservices
Cons: lack of concern for employees
I am a former employee of SRVS. Every job has issues and needs to be fined tuned. I loved working with the clients and staff. The job was demanding I had a satisfied feeling when I left work. I made a difference by contributing to an environment that enhanced the clients lives.
Management (Supervisor and Director) were not experienced in handling situations – more... that involved employees. The employee was guilty even when they were innocent. The system is set that the family is always right. You are expected to do whatever the family want to maintain your job. I am a protocol and policy person. I could not tolerate unfairness so I left. – less
Site Manager (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – January 30, 2013
Pros: easy to advance
Cons: shows no consern for the employees
A typical day at work is dedicated to hard work with the clients they serve. I've learned in management their is no time to build a relationship with staff or clients. The unstableness between employees and management causes a bit of stressful situations with employees faces on a day to day basics. The hardest part of this job was trying to redirect – more... co-workers negative way of thinking and working towards and positive goal. Most of the people I work with was hung up on how they prefer to work which, made it harder on others and the manager. The most enjoyable part of the job was the opportunity for the position in management and the experience gained workin with a lot of diversity that made me stronger. – less

Cons: unconcerned management
THIS WAS NOT A VERY GOOD PLACE OF BUISNESS TO BE EMPLOYED AT. I ENJOYED VERY MUCH BEING WITH THE CHILDREN EVERYDAY. UNFORTUNATELY THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS NOT A GOOD ONE. THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR ADVANCEMENT. THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB WAS HAVING TO TRANSPORT THE CHILDREN IN A VEHICLE THAT WAS NOT KEPT IN GOOD MAINTAINANCE AND BREAKING DOWN ON THE EXPRESSWAY – more... WITH CHILDREN ON BOARD IN THE COLD. – less
