I lasted a full year because I didn't want to leave the house I was working in. I loved working with autistic children and adults, but the company just doesn't appreciate their employees. When a house manager is making minimum wage, there is an issue. The children's homes hired staff one day and they turned around a quit the next day. Expectations were not obtainable, and forget taking a shift off, you were required to find someone to cover for you, but there wasn't even enough staff to cover regular shifts as it was. It was very hard trying to handle my family at home and going into work. My shift was from Friday night until Monday morning. I think it would be better for someone who does not have children at home.
Management does not exist
