Supervisor (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – January 15, 2019
No one should work for this company nor should any vulnerable adult and children receive services from them. Management has committed crimes against employees and their family members, and I reported several clients that were treated the worst I have ever heard about. These people are still shown on their website as working for the company.
INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Anchorage alaska – October 31, 2018
It's great working with people who needs support but management is just atrocious. Supervisors never answered there phones and they were the ones to contact I'm case of emergency. Very little training for all the things you have to do. They try shoving as much knowledge into you in 2 weeks 8 hours a day. Hard to retain it all they just rush through training.
Individual Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 30, 2018
Hope is an amazing Place to work and get to know people with disbalities and learn about them and work with them to help them grow. It is a great place to learn new skills and help the people you work with learn the skills they need to live in the places and survive. The management is awesome they will work with you as long as you talk to them. Hardest part of the job was when I left and I had grown very used to the people I worked with and helping them have a good life.
Community Activities Specialist (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 29, 2018
Amazing company. The shortcomings are not unique to the company and are shy compared to the benefits of working for Hope. I've met the most amazing people while working here. It doesn't feel like a job sometimes.
Hope doesn't care about the people they serve or their employees
Home Alliance Coordinator (Former Employee) – Wasilla, AK – July 15, 2018
Hope management constantly sweep issues under the rug, commit medicaid fraud, lie to employees and family members of their clients. I would not ever let Hope provide care to a loved one of mine and I will NEVER recommend anyone to go work there.
Budget Analyst (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – March 17, 2018
Hope Community Resource is probably the best company I have ever worked for. They are understanding in the fact that they understand you have a life outside of work. They treat their employees the same as the treat the individuals they help.
Individual Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Soldotna, AK – February 7, 2018
A typical day at work was never the same! Depending on the individual I would work with that day, would determine what our day had in store. I learned that everyone is beautiful in their own special way. The hardest part of the job was when a medical emergency happened.The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to make wonderful bonds with individuals all while caring for their medical needs.
a wide variety of disabilities in a wide age range of kids & adults
Contract Work, Life Skills Specialist (Former Employee) – Kodiak, AK – December 12, 2017
this allowed me to travel all over the state of Alaska in both city, town and remote village settings to meet and help people and families with developmental disabilities and the challenges of being in their own communities successfully
Employee Education Specialist (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – November 1, 2017
This was the most backward place I have ever worked. Pay scales do not exist. The management runs things by threats and mistreatment of employees. There are so many things wrong it would be hard to know where to start. But don't take my word for it. Just ask any ex-employees.
Recreation Programs Supervisor (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – October 18, 2017
I first came to Hope as an international volunteer. I returned many times because I loved what Hope did. I became employed in 2013 and was given an amazing opportunity to be a Supervisor. My director and higher managnment were so supportive of my ideas and investment in the organization. It was like a family and I miss working there every single day. My clients and families were amazing to work with also. I highly recommend others to work with Hope and do not be afraid to share your ideas.
Home Alliance Coordinator (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – October 10, 2017
HCR is my home. There is a special place in my heart for this company that will always be there. I was allowed to grow and allowed to be myself and it reflected in the beautiful people that i supported throughout my career with Hope. I always know there is a place for me there if and or when we return to Alaska and I love that I am and will always be apart of the Hope Community Resources Family.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – September 1, 2017
I loved my job with Hope specifically working in the art studio with abou 65 different artists who all experience a disability. It was wonderful to help someone create and become an artist by developing their own skills.
