    It looks good on the surface. They tell you all the wonderful things you want to hear to begin with . You actually start to believe them. Then you get to the house and it's a complete lie. Everything they tell you.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ResCare in April 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy. I was asked about my experience. He basically handed me the job. He printed out schedules of open shifts in various group homes and told me to pick what I wanted, I was nervous because I knew nothing about any of these houses and felt luck was up to fate. There is a second interview process which the PC or home manager takes you to the house you chose and judges how you interact with residents and asks interview questions as well. The PC hired me but didnt turn in her side of the paperwork so after a week of not receiving a call back, I contacted them to find out the paperwork was never turned in and they forgot. Then basically you do your background check and wait a week or so for the results and begin orientation.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ResCare (Louisville, KY).

    Interview

    Interview and hiring process was adequate except they did not check references until after I was offered the job and had worked a few days. Not a good practice. Orientation was rushed and a large amount of information thrown at me in order to get me through it and able to go out working in the field.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you okay with a couple weeks of orientation   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, was given a take it or leave it pay.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ResCare (Everett, WA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The basic interview questions. Then she asked how many languages I spoke. I said only English... silence from interviewer...and then she said "oh". Wish she asked that during the phone interview screening, would have saved me my time, since it was a preferred skill. A week later, she ignored my emails inquiring about the position.

    Direct Care Professional Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ResCare (Gallipolis, OH) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I was just told about what the job responsibilities were and if it was something I would be interested in doing. I then had to answer a bunch of questions but none of them were really mandatory. I already had the job; it was just standard procedure. There really wasn't much to it. I had the sense that they were short on staff and they desperately needed to hire someone. (I was right).
