In Home Aide (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 5, 2019
They are straight forward about the work experience you may have and what is expected of you. Coworker and coordinators are a delight as well as their clients. They take great care of themselves and clients this includes lots of group training and meetings along with one-on-one training when needed with no hesitation. Their clients definitely keep you on your feet.
Supportive management, on clock lunch period, training

Customer Success Manager, Enterprise (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 3, 2019
LifeWorks had a great culture and collaborative work environment. All Director level and below management were super engaged. If there were a LifeWorks in theory again...it would be a great company to work for.

Assisting clients with everyday life. Maintaining their safety and welfare. Document health and meds. Take clients out into the community and help them lead fulfilling lifes. The hardest part was the behaviors and knowing how to react. The best part was definitely the clients.
Career Placement Counselor (Former Employee) – Eagan, MN – August 30, 2018
It's a challenge being a new employee here. A lot of people have not worked anywhere else so you have to adhere to their work culture. They have been doing things a certain way for quite some time and there isn't necessarily any room for creativity.

Operations Support Manager (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – May 9, 2018
They do all of these surveys to find out what their employees think and how they feel, but they never take the time to find out why the scores are low or what to do about it. They have tons of resources to help their customers promote employee engagement, but they don't focus on it within.

Service Facilitator (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – March 10, 2018
Lifeworks had a very laid back atmosphere. We worked with clients with disabilities and I feel everyone tried their best to give the clients the best service. One thing that needs to improve is making decisions that would be best for everyone and not just money wise.

I help take care of my sister who has cerebral palsy and motor impairment. I take care of her when time is needed. The hardest part of the job is physically taking care of her depending on her mood. I help walk, feed, and interact with my sister as needed.
Personal Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – January 6, 2018
I worked as a PCA for two young people with autism and it was the most rewarding job I've ever had. Frustrating at times but very worth it. Experiences vary quite a bit depending on the family you choose to work with.
