Working at Kencrest long term becomes very frustrating. IF you ever get a raise, its only when they raise starting wage. I have worked for Kencrest for nearly 8 years and I make EXACTLY the same as new hires. So, there is no reward for loyalty and merit. You will see many coworkers and managers come and go. There are some good managers but most are simply on a power trip and look down on staff, play favorites, incite gossip, behave unprofessionally. Being a direct care staff can make you feel invisible, overworked, and certainly underpaid. If you can take all of this in stride because you truly enjoy caring for others, then you may end up like me. In the end, I am happy while performing my job duties despite a gross lack of compensation and respect for the direct care givers.
Rewarding work caring for others, building relationships with others, Watching individuals blossom with proper care and attention
Low pay, lazy coworkers, power trippy management.
