    --Administration is very approachable and communicative
    --Scheduling willing to work with you to ensure you have an optimal schedule

    Cons

    --Sometimes difficult to schedule shifts in multiple departments. So long as you are thorough in your schedule and you communicate constantly with scheduling coordinator, though, it's not much of a problem.

    Good company

    Current Employee - Professional Caregiver (DSP) in Moorhead, MN

    Pros

    Extensive training
    Good supervisors
    Good pay for having little previous experience
    Truly seem to care about the clients and their successes

    Cons

    Some staff are very caught up in their own worlds. Can often be a gossipy place to work. Staff will occassionally be reprimanded for talking badly about a particular client, then no one wants to work with that client. High staff turnover which leads to problems of inconsistency with clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It should be more of a priority to fit the appropriate staff with the appropriate client. I've been at sites where the staff doesn't even want to be training in at the new site, and the clients can tell. It doesn't help anyone to have a new staff if the staff is going to be negative and rude.

    Good place to work through college, not a lifetime gig for most.

    Pros

    The pay was excellent compared to other jobs many college students that I knew had. The work was gratifying and didn't take much higher level thinking so it balanced out well with going to school. Working with people with disabilities helps to keep your life in perspective as well. The office staff was great for me.

    Cons

    The meetings were ridiculously simple and repetetive. Most of the time it seemed like the office staff just needed to be sure they were justifying there positions in a non-profit organization. Due to lack of staff and high turnover, the employment standards seemed really low at times. There seemed to be some behavior that was strictly prohibited in the policy manuals that was overlooked by the supervisors. Usually not a huge deal but we are dealing with vulnerable adults here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retaining your good leaders and eliminating the bad ones. You could pay the good empoyees more to do the added work by terminating the bad employees. Listen to the DSP staff, as they will tell you who to keep and who to drop if you listen.
