My Job with ARC is fine.
ARC (Current Employee) –  600 wilber aveNovember 7, 2018
While waiting for the individuals to arrive from program Staff is counting funds, checking and cleaning rooms, bathrooms, checking kitchen and stocking shelves with what's needed. like food and paper towels. Staff have to assist with snacks when they arrive and after that take them on outings like grocery shopping, movies and out to eat, any type of thing. Staff then assist them with showers ,shaves and cutting hair. When the individuals are agitated that's the hardest part. When the Staff can work with them and their peers together and get through the day that's enjoyable.

Poor
Manager (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OhioNovember 5, 2018
Little to no communication from upper management. No respect for women, No raises for Office Personnel, only Union Members.
They tell you they want a person who can handle themselves with men, but if you complain to anyone you are either told it's your job to handle it, and if you do complain you are frowned upon.
Pros
benefits paid for in full
Cons
No management support, no raises, no respect for women

OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Stockton, CAOctober 26, 2018
I only worked there one year, and as is known from non profit organizations, the pay is minimum. 9.40$ the hour.
It was a great human experience working with people with mental disabilities. But no chance to grow at all.

Employment Specialist (Current Employee) –  Downey, CAOctober 10, 2018
As a job coach the hours are very flexible. You get to make your own schedule every week according to your client's working hours and make a difference in some one else's life

Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) –  Albany, GAAugust 19, 2018
Underpayed for all the duties you perform for your resident. Albany ARC did a big pay cut from $12 per hour to $9 hour which is very unfair to their employees. Albany Ga ARC doesn't care about how much work their employees really does for this company but the pay makes it hard to pay your bills with after their 32-36 minimum hours per week. I love working with people with disabilities, but Albany GA ARC you need to pay us, we work hard!

A well established dedicated and ethical organization.
Employmwmt Specialist (Former Employee) –  New JerseyJuly 29, 2018
The work load is difficult due to the comstant turn over and shortage of qualified staffing this is a problem that although impacts thw ARC it is not at all exclusive to this organization as all ahencies amd organizations within this field are plagued with this problem. The ARC is not juat a leader in advocacy and high quality but they set the standard and always aspire to excellence unfortunately not because of state funding they rwcieve but in spite of thw funding thwy sont recieve. They also advocate and support employees as well realizing goos emplkyees and fair treatment is key to fulfillinf their mission.
They offer full benefits package but the employee cost is a little high. My particular position posed difficulty qith home qork balance as at times I worked 35 or 40 hpirs but spread ober a span od 7 days but this was not the norm in other departments. Intermal amd external training and up dates where offerrwd and available but unless it was mamdated there was neber any te to take advantage of it. Management was competent and respectfull and rwconized lower level staff as proffessionals and valued part of the orgamization. A good organization, a meedle in a hay stack within a thankless difficult low wage high burn out field.
The work load is never ending and too much is never enough. The moee yoi work thw more work there is. This is the nature of the field not just the ARC. There is no middle of tje road staff either very dedicated competent and caring or taking advantage od other coworkwes and mamagers.
If you insist on working in this a field tje ARC is one of
  more... tje few good. agencies left.  less
Pros
Working with and helping.people, Work cultuee is open and values proffessionalism and contributions and opinions
Cons
Hours required are.dwcieving, uae of peesonal vwhicle qith bwry meager pay back just claim on.ypur 1040

Arc is a relaxing but competitive work place you will always be on your feet. You will always have duties.
Direct Care Staff (Current Employee) –  Loxley, ALJuly 23, 2018
If you like Direct Care Staff then you will love ARC. There are many challenges with the individuals as you work more often you will learn more about them and get closer with them. It’s all up for your attitude , patients and care for others that will reflect off your job.

ARC was an after-school program that helped children by providing with a rich learning environment. On top of learning in the classroom students were also encouraged to learn how to participate in sports as well.
