Many positive changes have taken place in this ever changin industry!
Program Management (Current Employee) – Michigan – January 25, 2018
Central State is a place where you can start as a Substitute, Part-time or Fulltime Direct Support Professional and if you learn your job and do what you know is right, you can move up into any position you have shown that you qualify for. Central State promotes from within whenever possible.
The current Director is very responsive. So, if you have a problem with management being unfair or you just disagree and can't work it out, all you have to do is take it up, following the chain of command, and you will get answers and hopefully resolution that everyone can agree on.
Group homes can be as fun, respectful and rewarding to work in as you make them! If you're doing the right thing and treating people the way you would want your Grandmother treated, you'll really enjoy this work.
If you have the courage of your convictions and report if bad things happen, you will be happy working for Central State and will be able to sleep at night.
Advocating for people who need your support and being part of something bigger than yourself!
