Knowing consumers and different needs.
Direct Support Professional/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OH 43228August 9, 2018
A stop-n-go to get experience... nothing more, nothing less. You learn more about the needs of consumers and how to service those needs and wants.

Not really thrilled with how administration looks down on employees of different culture with higher education; not unless your real good friends. I mean real good friends.
Pros
experience in the field not for career.
Cons
low pay, no advancement (unless your friends... real good friend with admin)

People got promoted even though they were doing poorly in their previous positions. The corporate's culture is mostly about who do you know. No about how qualified you are.
Pros
Shift coverage if you give 4 hours windows.
Cons
Poor communication, many staff scheduled a the same location at the same time.

Awful company
Direct Service Provider (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHApril 26, 2017
I worked for this company for several years. They do not listen to employees at all. They will kick out anyone a client complains about without listening to their employees side. It is a bad mark when you get kicked out. The company literally hires anyone and they have very very bad retention numbers. So that means if someone doesnt show up to relieve you because they just don't feel like it, you are stuck. I honestly hated working for them. They scheduling sucks, and most employees don't clean at all. So that means you will have to. DON'T WORK HERE
Pros
The clients
Cons
Management and scheduling

Very interesting work, that requires much muliti tasking and problem solving skills.
Habiltation Coordinator/Community Specialist (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHApril 21, 2017
There is much to learn, and the job duties change on a regular basis. No two days are ever the same, and getting pulled to another area is an ongoing issue.

The individuals we work with make the job interesting and fun.

You have to be well organized and have documentation to cover all areas of the job, to keep you safe.
Pros
Continued on the job training, fun interesting clients to work with
Cons
Regular intruptions of breaks or lunches if you get them. Constant changing of job duties.

DSP (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHAugust 25, 2016
Typical day includes personal care, cleaning, transportation and passing meds.

Management and scheduling is all over the place and inconsistent. There is double booking at the houses and some of the individuals even complain about having staff at their home not trained.

There are employees complaining about their paycheck not being correct.

Most of the staff in my opinion are scared to even say anything because of possible retaliation. There are a lot of disgruntle employees who are unhappy but the reviews on here are good?

The enjoyable part of the job is seeing a difference in individuals quality of life.

The best thing to do in this job is to mind your business, not gossip and just help the individual.
Pros
helping individual
Cons
gossip, management, scheduling

Frankly they no longer compensate enough to justify the job expectations
Direct Service Provider (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHAugust 11, 2015
The job is by no means the most difficult in the world. However it does require a level of patience, and ability to deal with weird/awkward/dirty situations and people that is not required of many jobs of equivalent pay.
Cons
Pay rate
