Good place to work for but not enough hours provided to work.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Chantilly, Virginia – February 19, 2015
Rescare is a good place to work because of the flexibility. They do not provide set hours. It is a great job to work if you are in school and need prn work hours or part time. It is not so good to work for them when you need guarantee 8 hours a day or set work schedules.

My typical day is cooking, cleaning, supervised appointments, and supervised outings in the community. I prepare daily documentation about each client and inform management of any changes a client's behavior may portray, if extreme.
Business Services Consultant (Former Employee) – Clayton, NC – March 19, 2019
Workplace culture was stagnant and un-motivated (no sense of teamwork or passion) Poor workplace professionalism amongst co-workers. No sense of team. No training program. Great on site management, but horrible leadership above that. Great opportunity to get out and help your local community with the programs grant funds offered to develop economic growth.
Caregiver/ Direct Care Worker (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 18, 2019
It was a good job but I wasn't getting enough hours to be able to pay rent. As soon as you got used to a schedule it switched up. I wasn't able to hold a stable income and almost became homeless. So I had to leave for the health of my family.
Very stressful, poor management, unorganized and hostile environment
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Orange, CA – March 17, 2019
Staff (caregivers) is the most challenging thing about the job. There are always complaints from staff and call outs 24/7. Staff get away with so much due to the companies policy giving them several chances and or upper management not returning a write up back in time.
Flexibility with schedule
Stressful, on call 24/7, lack of support, lack of training

Turn over is high and you will be expected to pick up the slack, very few 8 hours days, more like 12 hours if not more. They put a lot of pressure on you to work OT and will lie to you about anything. Watch your paychecks as they are rarely correct and you will be shorted on almost every check. Most of your co-workers are on their phones and not doing the work. If you are hard working your co-workers and boss will take advantage of you. Stay away from Rescare!!!!
You can work as many hours as you want, lots of OT
Long work hours, unappreciated, have to eat when you find the time
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Wilkesboro, NC – March 17, 2019
I love everything our company has to offer for our clients but the company is ran poorly & our overturn rates is ridiculous. The rules are always changing & $9.45 an hour for all that we do is not reasonable!
Never a full moment with our clients
Unorthodoxed management always changing the rules & babying their selected favorites, short staffed & $9.45 an hour for all that we do is ridiculous
Direct support staff (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – March 16, 2019
working with the clients was great, but when upper management would monopolize schedules and move you from one location to the next so that they wouldnt have to work at a high behavior home. something needs to be done.
Site Supervisor (Current Employee) – Jeffersonville, IN – March 15, 2019
ResCare does not compensate for the hard work their staff provide. The wages are way under what employees should make. Long shifts, only .32 per mile travel reimbursement. No room to move up in the company and after 2 years of employment as a Residential Manager, never given a raise. The company is disappointing.
ACT/College Coordinator Gary Job Corps - MTC (Current Employee) – San Marcos, TX – March 14, 2019
My impression of ResCare is that they were ok to work for. Their pay was excellent however their medical benefits were sub-par. I only left my position because ResCare lost their contract at the facility.
Flexible work schedule and ability to adjust to your life make this a good place to work.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA 30909 – March 14, 2019
Rescare is an at home Helth care organization. You have the abilty to make decisions about what your schedule is going to be. Time off is easy to get as an adequate staff can cover your work load while you are away.
Travel is required as you must attend to your patients at their residence.

Clients and family members always looked forward to visits, and services. clients always tried to help with tasks. Office had relationships with clients. Household relied on caregiver for chores that should have been completed prior to visit.
Caregiver/Personal Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 12, 2019
I worked at 3 different houses and I worked there for 3 years. First house the put me in was only temporary until they found a manager. When I was moved the house was pretty cool. All the clients were chill. However I made the mistake of going back to the old house to be the manager. All of the clients there but one were chill. One however was very combative and would scream for hours. They kept saying they were gonna move him but never did. Can’t tell you how many times I was smacked by him. They finally found a drug that pretty much knocked him out. The staff there wasn’t good. It was every man for themselves. I finally got fed up and left the house to a part time position. The nurse at the last house I woken at was pretty rude and our supervisor let her do whatever she wanted cause she pretty much checked out. The two morning guys I worked with were cool and we all got a long. The morning and afternoon shift just didn’t like each other. Mostly because of the nurse. We got a new supervisor and she right off the bat showed favoritism to all the Filipino staff cause she is Filipino. After the manger got fired the place pretty much fell apart. We were worked into the ground for such little pay and it seemed like they were never gonna find a new manager. Four hours there felt like four years. We also had gotten a new client that hated women. He attacked the female staff and the one female client on many occasions. The pm shift felt so unsafe one time they called the cops. Do you think they moved him? No. I left because the supervisor looked too me to pick up the slack of the housemore... manager and I did not sign up for that. ResCare only really cares about the money. They don’t care if the staff is safe or not. If they have to move a client then there goes the money from the government. We got our food delivered to us from a company that was two hours away and had to drive through traffic. Frozen food was pretty much starting to thaw when we got it. I don’t know why they didn’t find a company closer.less
