Most co-workers are down to earth. Great flexability when your relief able to pick the hours available on shift board. This job does not have breaks but there is sometimes a consider amount of down time. In most Residential home you become part of family. If you apply yourself you have a chance of advancing your career if you have the credentials. Bonus referals are good to have in a company.
Dealing with human services I notice the pay rate are low. This is not fast food or walmart to be responsible for a human being the pay rate should be considered at least 15 an hour for DSP. Most time when a staff is a no show you can get stuck pulling there shift. Oncall director are really good at finding some one to work quick. If your med certified sometimes you get ask to do meds in a local area, which becomes annoying.
Advice to Management
I think to make this company better for staff as in DSP or APD, I think they should consider us for a Program Director Position. Say out of group of 10 DSP who want advancement have them do a skills test. Which ever DSP did the best or seemed more qualified gets the position as an APD or PD. Just having an oppurtunity is a great thing in a work place.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Bridgewell (Lynn, MA).
Painless. It's a two step process where you first meet with the Supervisor and another colleague. After that you'll meet again with an additional supervisor to discuss more the job more in depth and discuss possible scenarios you might encounter. Everyone is very easy going and easy to talk to, and incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. Many of the employees have been around for a long period of time, which speaks highly to the organization and the work they do.
