Para-professional (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 24, 2017
While I worked at Gompers Habilitation Center I met some amazing people. Both Clients and Co-workers. The compassion and enthusiasm is hard not to love. Gompers has some great people working there but it is very hard to keep upper management. I worked there for 5 years and they went through many upper management in the short span of time. The turn around for this work is very high because it is not easy. You have to be committed to learning and loving working with this demographic. If you are, you will thrive. Having enthusiasm and positive energy goes a long way in making sure that you do not burn out. My favorite part of the job was working with the clients. My least favorite part was dealing with co-workers who will not do their part. This is a team effort and everyone needs to work together to provide safe and appropriate care for the people that attend.
higher management, not a lot of room for advancement.
Habilitation Technician (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 12, 2014
As a habilitation technician, I'm responsible for ensuring that clients with barriers to learning are assisted in ways that are fun and innovative. We are a classroom without limitations. My day consists of offloading wheelchairs from transport vans, getting them to their program rooms, and starting to work on their individualized goals. Then I assist them with independent eating. After lunch, we finish our goals and then its up to the client to suggest activities. I complete files and all required daily documentation, incident reports, and summaries. I assist with getting the clients back with their van drivers at the end of the day.
Great work schedule
Compensation, health insurance, lack of advancement opportunities.
Lead Receptionist (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 16, 2013
Being in business 65 years Gompers displays excellent service to individuals with disabilities. They take pride in their work and being able to connect with the clients on a daily basis. Great place to be and among a great group of employees who connect with one another and work as a team.
