Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Steelton, PA – October 1, 2018
Quality people run the operation in Steelton (here I worked) and honestly do the best they can with what they've got. It is a difficult environment and community to work with, but the right attitude helps. They help a lot of people with severe and acute mental illness get back into independent and supported living.
Relaxed environment, meet interesting people, help others in need
pay is low and the availability of hours fluctuates greatly for p/t
Case Manager II (Former Employee) – Harrisburg – October 10, 2018
The job itself is not bad but a lot to learn. However, if you do not catch on fast enough and kiss butt you better believe management will do what she can to get you to leave. Most training is on computer. You have very little job shadowing. You are expected to just go out and do the job. If you have an on call position and your out all night you better plan on working that morning as well. Was up for 3 days straight with on call and having to go into the office. Wanted just a few hours off to get some sleep and management told me "that is what on call is about". Major favoritism in this workplace with management. If you work here, plan on kissing butt so your not on the wrong end. I would look elsewhere as no one deserves to be treated the way management treats you here, unless you kiss butt then you may be okay. This place is a joke and very unprofessional!!!!!!!! Good luck if you accept a position here.
Adult Program...awful to work at!! Residential was decent!
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA – September 25, 2018
The Adult program (New Holland Avenue location) was not at all a good place to work! No team environment whatsoever, and really no training time at all, as they seem to be short staffed continually!! For anyone thinking about CSG, go for office work, or Residential...stay far away from the Adult program!!!
Residential in the homes work is decent, pay is fair.
Adult program is awful to work for..no training, no team, makes a new person feel unwelcome!!!

It's not a bad place to work. You get to meet allot of people and become friends with them. My day starts sometimes at 5:00 in the morning or sometimes at 5:30. The hardest part is when the clients don't obey the rules and let you know if they are going or not. Some wait until the staff gets there and calls in to say that they want to go and I am already on the road. I then have to make a second trip to pick them up.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Williamsport, PA – July 26, 2018
as always, the individuals in this kind of job is what makes the job heartfelt. They are the reason most of us enjoy our jobs here. management is generally compassionate about life situations. it is a set schedule and some of the set shifts are not cool, but some people may need those days and hours. otherwise, this is a great place to work
Alternate Advisor (Former Employee) – Pottsville, PA – July 9, 2018
I enjoyed working at Community. I worked with great families and clients. The clients abilities varied and the job I performed could not be limited to any one specific task, but I liked that about the job I did with CSG. My only reason for seeking other employment was I did not make enough money to pay for all my bills and expenses.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – June 27, 2018
Management is out for their selves and do not help staff. They do not approve your days off a lot. Benefits are ok, some staff you work with are alright while others would through you under the bus to protect themselves.
Mental health direct support specialist (Former Employee) – Atlas, PA – June 25, 2018
The residents are great and some of the staff are great to work with. You have favorites in the place so things that's shouldn't be overlooked are when it's certain people. The program director doesn't wanna hear any issues going on. Pto is supposed to be good but you can't use it unless you find someone to cover your shift. If you actually do your job then you won't be treated the way u should be.
Direct Support Staff (Former Employee) – Catawissa, PA – June 14, 2018
I enjoyed my time at CSG. The staff got along pretty well, and the individuals were great to work with. The only complaint I have is that CSG does not promote themselves well enough to spur awareness of employment. We were consistently understaffed.
Staff (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA – May 16, 2018
If you like to work for a company who gives you NO raises and keeps piling more and more work on you, than this is the place to work. If you like to work with managers who are hypocrites, then again, this is the place to work. Finally, if you want to work with a manager who has no empathy or any idea how to properly handle staffs' needs, than this is the place you want to work for. Good Luck!
Mental Health Direct Support (Current Employee) – Central PA – April 25, 2018
CSG offers great flexibility if you're working PRN (as needed). That's the one thing that has me contemplating whether or not I want to give up this job; I worry that I wont find another part time job that's as flexible.
The pay, for a PRN job, isn't bad. However, I definitely couldn't survive on that if I worked full time. I'm not sure how others do, especially those who have kids.
The location I work at is a stressful environment mostly due to staff. The atmosphere is constant negativity, no teamwork, arguing, etc. It's unprofessional and nothing is ever done about it, despite having brought up concerns/ideas/suggestions to management.
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Former Employee) – Lock Haven, PA – March 31, 2018
Management was easy to get along with and work with. A normal work day is bathing, feeding, cleaning, laundry and more. The residents were enjoyable to be around. The bad part of the job was giving them there medicine.
Management in dire need of sensitivity training...and A LOT of it!
Case Management (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – March 16, 2018
There is no employee interaction unless you are established. Favoritism and cut-throat ethics are rampant in the Harrisburg location. Management offers NO constructive criticism but plenty acknowledgement of an employee's short comings. If you are excited to receive all training of the job from online courses and webinars, minus in-person shadowing or guidance, this job is for you! Good luck...the turnover is VERY high! Go ahead, accept a job position with this organization and particular location and let us know how it works out for you...
