I loved working with my consumers. However, co workers were a hit or miss. A lot of people who work there you can tell do not care at all about the person they're supposed to take care of. They do a really terrible bare minimum job for the most part or even worse are abusive. Then those who do care do double or triple the work. Those people were really nice people, but did not seem to last long unless they got into a good house which is rare. Since everything is done by seniority and not who is the best worker.The houses with available shifts were always the worst shifts, worst coworkers, house falling apart, and consumers that need lots of care. The hourly rate is a joke. For the amount of work you should be doing to take care of consumers. Then the amount of money you pay in union dues, physical, TB testing, fingerprinting, background check, and insurance you hardly even get a paycheck. If you needed anything from management you will never hear back from them. They don't return phone calls, they don't return emails, and they usually have an attitude. Management is by far the worst part of this entire job. It's not worth it at all. Go to school and get a health care degree it will be worth the extra hourly rate.
