YesWaiver Case Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – September 13, 2018
The job allows for a worker to set their own hours and flex their day. if needed, workers can work weekends and take two days off during the week. Each week is different and the worker can arrange the schedule they wish to follow.
unrealistic expectations low pay very good benefits
HCS Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – South Fort Worth – September 9, 2018
There is not enough time in a 40 hour work week to accomplish all that they expect. But they hate to give overtime.
They have a new database that is a disaster. It makes the twenty year old database it is replacing look good. It takes twice as long to enter information as the old database and it doesn't track timelines or reports.
It is a very good place to learn about and work with people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
People rarely stay longer than a year
poor pay, poor management, unrealistic expectations, high turnover
The clients are great to work with. The management & most of your co-workers are former addicts. I believe in giving former addicts a second chance, but they should not be in management. The management is very very poor. Strong lack of communication, they just spring anything on you day to day. The management staff is very clickish, they hire their friends that's not even qualified for the position & give them advancement opportunities. If they don't like you, you will get pushed out! They won't give the nurses raises no matter how hard you work or how good you are. I really loved working there but dealing with management was very stressful.
Program Specialist II (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – August 1, 2018
Job Security is there. Not a bad place to work. A terrible place if you want to advance. I love my coworkers and the hours are super flexible. If you can find out your boss ahead of time do that it makes a lot of difference.
When I worked at MHMR (StarCare) it was much better. The company had a CEO who empathized with the clients and the employees and worked very hard to keep jobs and to keep insurance costs low. The vision was fulfilled by the management staff and employees were cared about. It was a stressful job and always will be but at that time the CEO and directors attempted to assist in anyway that they could.
Clinic Coordinator/Case Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – July 17, 2018
In my position, one had to be very organized, manage time, and be efficient at the job. it is very time demanding. the hardest part of the job was having such a heavy load and not enough hours in the day.
Residential Trainer (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – July 8, 2018
When at work the timing and hours worked were great. There Were always an possibility of being able to work extra hours when needed. The management showed care and understanding towards clients and employees.
Addictions Counselor (Former Employee) – Pine Street – July 5, 2018
Management appears to care little for their employees and cliques and supervisors forming personal relationships with employees is common. Clients are deserving and grateful for the most part but the toxic work culture belies the company philosophy that we are here to serve the clientele. I learned a lot while working there but did not feel like my skills and expertise were valued or appreciated.
Mental Health Specialist (Current Employee) – Beaumont, TX – June 27, 2018
You typically set your own schedule and see families/clients how you want. The amount of work that is requested does not match the pay that has been offered. On one occasion, i had to speak with HR due to having questions about the salary offered versus what my paychecks actually looked like. I was given the run-around and sad to say nothing was ever fixed.
Management constantly finds ways to chew out employees for not meeting their guidelines and take no time to try to understand that some of the standards set are nearly impossible without cheating the system. Asking questions when you do not understand is pointless, as no one in management ever has answers.
the one good thing i can say is that you have the flexibility to do what you want and still get your work done.
