This job is not for everyone. It can be difficult at times, but if you like to help people succeed this is the place to be. Even though they cant all tell you how much they appreciate the work we do for them their smile says it all when you walk in that door to start ypur shift.

This part of ARC is a joke. Schoharie ARC is privately funded for profit enterprise of corrupted management. If your not in the click or don't agree with the click your out immediately. This ARC has always catered to management and does not focus, care, or look out for it's employees. The head of HR is a joke and profiles employees. There's a reason there turn over is among the highest.

I LOVED the people i worked with, consumers were awesome. Management sucked they were always one sided always believed one person over the other. their health care sucked overall good place to work but higher management needs new people. i would go back in a heart beat for the consumers
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Cobleskill, NY – January 2, 2017
A typical work day evolved doing paperwork, various activities/outtings, passing medication, helping consumers get through tough times. I learned a lot of new and useful skills I can apply to my own personal everyday life. Management was a lot of help when needed, always had someone to turn to when I had a question or problem. My coworkers help make the time pass making work very enjoyable and fun. Hardest part of my job is dealing with different and sometimes stressful times depending on the day. Most enjoyable part of my job is helping others who have a hard time helping their selfs.
Life Skills Assistant (Current Employee) – Schoharie, NY – February 2, 2015
The job experience was beneficial and I gained more insight about people with disabilities. This job taught me how to be a team player, understand different types of medications and how to distribute consistently. Working for the ARC, they gave me the opportunity to learn medical experience with taking vitals, insulin training and ordering and storing medications.
