Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Concord, CA – September 24, 2018
I believe this is a good place to start for those who have disabilities or need accommodations. Can also help with vocational expenses and rehabilitation. Been a client for 3 years and I am still involved with the agency. Must be referred for a client interview.
Mental Health Rehabilitation Worker (Former Employee) – Rohnert Park, CA – August 10, 2018
I worked at CASA Rohnert Park for 9 months. I enjoyed certain aspects of my job as a mental health rehab worker. I met and heard from so many different people with various backgrounds. I also loved the mental health aspect of my job, as a person with a B.A in psychology and a love for helping others with mental illnesses. While the job was great at times, other times it was stressful and I felt VERY undertrained and inexprienced for what I was dealing with. I was very untrained. Many of my coworkers told me while I was first starting out that this job is experienced based. You learn as you go, but that way is dangerous sometimes when a client is aggressive or violent and having one training once a year for how to block a client's punches isn't enough. I really wished our CASA had meetings or get togethers with all workers to brainstorm about how to deal with certain clients or just complain about the the work load. We had monthly staff meetings, but that was meant for my boss to complain about things that aren't getting done, etc. Corporate was unhelpful and distant when at worked at CRP. I felt like I was nothing and insignificant to them. I worked 3-11pm Thursday-Sunday. It was a hard shift and I felt not appreciated for the work I did, which was a lot at sometimes. This job is not for everyone. I took a lot out of me and that was the reason why I quit this job, for my mental, emotional, and physical health. The job itself took a lot out of me, but my coworkers and boss were the breaking point for me quitting.
being able to help others, pay time off and sick leave
DSP (Former Employee) – Rosemead, CA – July 19, 2018
I worked at the Evelyn home in Rosemead, Ca. The environment was very structured and the consumers were interesting to work alongside to say the least. My problem with the facility is the politics between staff and management. They also couldn't respect the privacy of others and it was loads of 'Drama' to say the least. Aside the advancement in my work skill's and opportunity work in many community setting with consumers I could've done with the ego's and abuse of power done by management along with the power struggle most staff seem to grasps onto at my former facility. The company benefits aren't the most appealing but its offered at a fair rate.
there are RATS all over the place at Nierika House
Counselor (Former Employee) – Nierika House – July 16, 2018
Just said it above, was afraid I would get some disease from all the RATS...poor management, favoritism, low pay, no raise in 10 years! HR and admin also terrible, no guarantee of hours, bunch of kids working there who like to smoke cigarettes while on the clock...
Mental Health Worker/ Counselor (Current Employee) – Concord, California – June 26, 2018
Challenging but productive. You learn every day at the job by caring for patients of diversified background and satisfying their needs. The team composition and ability of the team to be on same page in discharging duties to the satisfaction of the patients are the most enjoyable part of my job.
Good pay, great training, but lacks management skills.
DSP1 (Current Employee) – Vacaville, CA – May 30, 2018
Management lacks skill. Management has put employees in a comfortable position multiple times. Management would have other employees who are not qualify to do managements duties. Management has no communication skills. Management micromanages and plays favoritism.
Great training, and pay.
Management could be better, Stressful, and Dramatic environment.
Landscaping/ highway maintenance (Current Employee) – 1185 n campbell – May 30, 2018
My boss was great and easy to work with and always maintainted proffesional. I feel like sone times the labor is too much for only $14 an hour though. I'm not totally unhappy but I'm certainly not satisfied.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Vacaville, CA – April 5, 2018
Management had little or no experience. Staff had No support from management. Messy staff, most staff stayed texting. Lazy, . It's sad that ppl want to get paid but do hardly nothing. Working with clients is a plus. PA have favorite staff, she back up, even when their wrong.
Mental Health Associate (Former Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – March 21, 2018
You basically work with one other person to watch a group home of adults or kids depending on the treatment. You are underpaid for the amount of responsibilities that is not listed on the job postings. You are pretty much a glorified nanny. You are expected to supervise a group of people, cook, clean, complete notes and run errands without much support from others. Sometimes you are by yourself multi-tasking which gets stressful. HR is a joke, they don't help answer questions and ignore any requests. The higher ups and managers are not supportive. Some patients make the job tolerating.
free lunches (sometimes)
rarely any breaks, not much support from administration
Medical Billing (Former Employee) – Fairfield, ca – March 8, 2018
I enjoyed my time here, I was a temp medical biller while the full time employer was on maturity leave. I learned many things in the short time I was there. I would very much be interested in find something similar to that.
License Vocational Nurse (Former Employee) – Citrus Heights, CA – February 21, 2018
Shut down our facility with a 6 day notice, then told all employees they could not use their sick time. Then offered employees to another facility and that facility was shut down less than 2 months later with a longer 2 week notice. Such poor management, lazy employees who complain about everything. Just don't work for this company.
Mental Health Rehabilitation Worker (Current Employee) – Lodi, CA – February 8, 2018
Its not bad. Staff are great. Enjoy environment. Pay is low. Working in a Crisis Home and being exposed to a more mental health environement is exciting and ever educational. Management has family and favorites.
Clinical Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – February 2, 2018
This company is loaded with middle management employees who know nothing about the day to day operation of a program. The focus is on money with no regard for the employee. The pay is ridiculously low, however, the benefits are not bad. The work schedule can be flexible, which is nice. This company seems to routinely hire from the bottom of the barrel. HR is a joke and completely incompetent. The best part of the job is working with the clients.
Low pay, management is awful, demoralizing corporate culture.
