Appreciation

A company with longevity that respects and appreciates their hard working staff. In a time when many facilities are downsizing or closing, Abilities is working hard to retain and maintain their staff. They offer incentives and drawings to staff. Multiple facilities with all different levels of care. Opportunity for growth. Rewarding environment!

Stressful but necessary for career advancement

Obtained a great deal of experience. Stressful as I was a supervisor and my job was dependent on a state grant for welfare to work grant called WeCare. We had to process potential disability cases. It was a new type of program and management didn’t really know how to manage us. Very stressful!! However the experience with working with the public was invaluable. Did get a lot of training due to CARF requirements which was awesome!!!

Pros

CARF training and standards

Cons

Grant requirements caused stress.

No appreciation for doing overtime. Calls at home during your day off. No company incentives given. Clients are great but you will receive no help from office staff.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

No personal life

Most of staff suck

Productive work place

Is a very hands on job. The residents are great. Helping people in the community is fun and rewarding. Unfortunately they have a high turn over rate, and unreliable management.

Run as fast as you can

The people who own the company dont care about the employees or the people they are suppose to be supporting. You have staff on their phones talking to whoever and talking about their personal lives in front of clients and then wonder why the client is coming on to them asking for dates. You to go a manager and tell them what is happening at the group home and they look the other way because they are desperate for help. They leave their current homes to smoke or to talk with other staff while clients are screaming or getting into things. They have so much drama at these houses that clients do not get taken care of. You wonder who the client is when you have staff in wheelchairs doing their jobs. They have young idiots working their and it's only for the money talking about going out or getting drunk. Then you have the ones who claim they do it all which is a joke and they are a no call no show or text they aren't coming in but still have a job. Or you have snitches who turn you in because in reality you do the job better than them. Or better yet u have a manager on a ego trip trying to make a name for herself when she doesnt even know what she is doing. I'm surprised they are still in business they dont care about the people they support or the good employees who try to make a difference for the clients.

Management

It was a great place to work when I started. Somewhere along the way the managment stopped caring. Good staff started leaving and management seemed to bring in just anyone to fill shifts. Management didn't appreciate the good staff they had, actually seemed to show appreciation towards the bad staff. Managers seemed to have too much on their plates to give their residents and staff their attention when needed.

Starts at the top

This company needs sole direction. Leadership if you want to call it that is about making money. They are not about client care. They are about lining their pockets. They are extremely judgmental and will try and ruin your reputation. They have run off their best managers because they don’t like having the best management. It’s always some one cheaper and less qualified to lead a team of DSP’s. Stay far way from this company!

Pretty Decent Company

Sadly all caregivers are underpaid but the company does the best it can for the staff that show up everyday and are phenomenal at their jobs. They also offer incentives like bonuses, and a higher pay rate for staff who sign up for 32 hour weekends.

Na

This is a very good place to work. I recommend anybody in the whitewater area to apply. Even if your looking for somewhere to move to this is a great place to start.

Wouldnt recommended working there

Not a very good work Environment, co-workers are lazy, not friendly to other co-workers or the clients. Mean to the clients, employees rarely show up for their shifts. Alot drama within the work place. Not a healthy Environment to work in.

No life

You are never guaranteed that someone will show up for the next shift. Management lacks communication. Some employees are lazy and will talk on their phones instead of work.

Pros

Not recommended

If you don't like getting physically and verbally attacked by clients then this is not the place for you. Management lies about what is going on and a lot of State and Federal regulations are not followed or are ignored.

Was an okay job for a few months.

Didn’t receive benefits, didn’t get a raise for a year and a half. Management was not the best, some coworkers are good but a lot slack. They do not work with what you’re comfortable with.

Pros

Residents

Cons

Low wage
