I never had a bad experience. A typical day at work is giving medications, snacks, preparing meals, hygiene care, community integration, and completing goals and outcomes for individuals.

Depending on what your position was, you generally did not have much life/work balance. Pay was minimal, but other benefits were good. Opportunity for growth

Not well
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) –  Marion, INMay 1, 2018
You start by getting them up and ready for the day, hoping that nobody fights you or themselves. Then you hope the next 8 hours go by w/o incident. That nobody fights each other or the staff.
Pros
You have no uniform
Cons
Very stressful

Great at First
prefer not to answer (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMarch 22, 2018
Inspiring at first.

Had individuals working 24+ hours for one shift.

Upper management took no responsibility and blamed others for situations that could have been avoided if lower level employees opinions were listened to.

Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INJanuary 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.
Pros
You can generally pick your hours.
Cons
random call in's/ extra drive time work often
