Estimator (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – December 29, 2017
United Services is an insurance repair company with job security and compensation based on property damage for insurance claims. On-call and after hours were very common. Good working environment; however, work and compensation was directly related to commercial and homeowner property damage occurring.
I performed all office duties from opening the office, sorting mail, answering phones to driving to the work site to deliver plans. I greeted customers, set up appointments, made travel arrangements. I enjoyed my position there and would still be there if the owner had not passed away.
Sheet Metal Mechanic (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 29, 2017
I liked the work but the shop foreman even though he was 2 years older then ,would say he didn't have to work cause he did his time ,although I have been in the feild longer then him,he would stand around and tell us the job had to be done fast but with out his help. And I was told all foreman there where working foreman,so didn't like that part. But as for everything else it was a great company to work for .
Facilities Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Peters, MO – July 28, 2017
United Services provides a valuable service to the community. Focused on complete and comprehensive care to preschool age children with specific focus for those with special needs. They provide not only preschool education preparation, but a full spectrum of therapy support to develop children of all abilities. It can be challenging, but the reward of seeing these children achieve and develop makes the efforts more than worthwhile.
Management in intensive services is awful, No support ! Dangerous situations evolve and you are alone in shelter.Can't keep help! Management made workers move their desk to face wall because they would get more work done. Management in intensive services talks to workers like their in kindergarten.
United Services helps people all over the state struggling with mental health issues. The vocational department finds jobs for these people and has the job coach's go on site with them. Workplaces and participants are constantly changing, but it remains an enjoyable experience.

United Services in St. Peters, MO not Connecticut. Great place to work. Team oriented. Will miss the school district students served there. Work place treat each other as family. hardest part of the job is that it is very physical. Working in a multi needs classroom can be very physically demanding. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with the children each day.

Client Support (Former Employee) – Danielson, CT – May 4, 2015
Overall an ok place to work, trust between management and employees was lacking.. co-workers were great! money was tight and employees did not receive a raise during my time there. Good starter place for employment, not career worthy.
lack of trust from supervisors - too much papwework

A typical day involves dealing with crisis, transporting clients to appointments, progress notes, assessments, treatment plans. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the paperwork, and dealling with daily issues of clients. Too much pressure from supervisor, detailed to paperwork.
