Love my work, like this company
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Faribault, MN – October 17, 2017
I have worked as a Direct Support Professional for 18 years, for 4 different companies in 2 different states. One of the companies was a smaller one, the others were large (over 100 employees). Of the larger companies, LSS has been the best large company I have worked for. They have an emphasis on both person-centered services and on developing employees' skills and interests. I have appreciated the learning opportunities, and the feedback I get from supervisors. They also emphasize a work-life balance by offering full-time employees the most generous leave package I have seen in this field. While most holidays are not paid due to the 24/7 nature of this work, full-time employees receive floating holidays in addition to PTO.
I'm very happy here, and I encourage anyone interested in this field to give LSS a try.
The people we serve are amazing, coworkers are fantastic, variety of tasks throughout the work day so it isn't boring.
