Check Each and Every Pay stub.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – August 31, 2018
Positives are decent pay, normal sort of benefits where you need to pay part of healthcare.
Negatives are two.
First, paid time off can be tricky to utilize, depending on the family you work with and staff support for coverage, or lack thereof. An easy solution would be to receive pay for unused paid time off, but they do not offer that. It is a “use it or lose it” policy.
Second, is that the accounts payable department makes errors ALL. THE. TIME. You must review each and every pay stub. They’ll enter the wrong pay rate. They’ll enter the wrong hours. They’ll omit federal paid holidays. Incredibly, even after bringing such issues to their attention, they continue to make mistakes. This adds a great deal of anxiety, as you cannot have trust and confidence in their work.
