Rewarding Job and Laidback Atmosphere

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Waves is one of the best companies I have ever had the pleasure to work for. I loved the people I worked for and the individuals I supported each day. I worked in the residents, and it really felt like a second home for me. This was a new career path and I doubted myself in the beginning, but my supervisor recognized my potential and quickly promoted me. Within 3 years I became a director over my own program at another company but will always be grateful for my core training and the opportunities that I received at Waves.

A great company concept... it’s just the people that make the job not worth it. The hours and pay do not match up to how exhausting it is to do the type of work required. HIGH turn over rate no one lasts more than 6 months to a year.

Fun place to work

Arrive to the center and get in the company car begin route to pick up SR's. Return to the center and see what is on the calendar for the day. Begin the outing, swimming, bowling, etc. Co workers are great people to work with. The hardest part is dealing with the different types of disabilities. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work with adults with different disabilities and taking them out to do fun things.


Taking SRs out to different places.


not enough hours.
