Team Leader - Assistant Manger (Former Employee) – Wall, NJ – July 15, 2018
When you have a great team things run smoothly. Each home runs differently depending on the management team. The best part of the job was dealing with the individuals. The hardest part of the job is the staffing; there is not enough staff. Also, developing a routine with you co-worker makes things easier.
Fun activities for the individuals
If your relief does not come in your stuck for a second shift

Supporting individuals with developmental delays and their families through Benchmark was rewarding. The oncall responsibilities allowed the professional staff to respond when clients needed help the most.
Assist clients (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – April 19, 2018
When working at Benchmark you will find that there is a routine that you have to follow everyday with the clients. Also their is never a dull day because when working with different clients you will always find out something new.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – January 28, 2018
While I worked at Benchmark the management I was under did not give proper credit or attention to the work staff. The staff would often let the managers know there were problems at the houses but nothing would get done. There was a large disconnect between staff and managers. Sometimes clients would need to go to appointments but managers had not let staff know and the appointments were missed, or there was not a second staff member scheduled to stay at the house.
