    I worked at Conway Human Development Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The clients are amazing. I loved seeing them every day and miss them very much. Staff development team is amazing.. it's just when you get to the units that it gets bad.

    Cons

    Staff are horrible and have bad attitudes. No respect what so ever. Don't come in as an RCSS off the street they will not train you. you have no authority to write staff up and when you need to house supervisor does not stand behind you at all. Shift coordinators are lazy and don't wanna come out to resolve issues when you need them but they want to bug you about little crap. Medical department neglects clients and tries to throw it on the staff. When you are the one doing your best they reprimand you and let the staff continue to work. Switchbord operators and HR staff are plain rude. Do not work here your life will be miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Ya'll need to be shut down your a poor excuse for a facility. I hope you are brought to justice!

    Pros

    Meeting different people from different cultures and helping those that are in need.

    Cons

    I did not have any bad experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Shift supervisors need to be more polite to their workers. Also, when the assistants make a minor mistake they should show them the correct way.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Easy to get hired, though it is a long process. Tons of training (no experience necessary.) Spiritually rewarding.

    Cons

    Lot's of drama between employees. Most of them act like high students. Very stressful- you're sometimes stuck between the rules and doing what's best for the person. Many lazy employees, and the hard workers are left to do it all. If everything doesn't get done perfectly, everyone gets in trouble, even though the hard workers did everything in their power to do everyone's jobs. Too much responsibility is put on individuals. Example: You may be asked to sign forms, stating that you are being held personally responsible for the safety and whereabouts of a resident and must keep them in your sight at all times. Problem? Only when you're asked to 'sign on' to 3 individuals at one time. If one person starts to run off, you must chase them and redirect them back to where the others are. If, during that time, another person runs off, you may not know which way they went, and you may be fired and put on the state's abuse and neglect list for it. As I mentioned before, working there is very stressful. I didn't lose my job over this kind of thing or anything like that, but that made it very stressful. Also, it's almost impossible to get a weekend day off of work- even after the death of a family member.

    Advice to Management

    Review some of your rules, and the things that you allow. Go to work in some of the houses with multiple individuals who are on visual supervision, and try watching 3 or more of those residents at the same time, for 2 hours or longer. Consider rotating Saturdays off with employees who wish to participate. I bet the number of call-ins on the weekends would drop if the employee knew he/she would get one off that month. People are afraid to put in for days off, because they know they will be denied, so they call in, leaving the house short-handed and the employees stressed (which is proven to make a person more likely to catch an actual illness.) Also, cut out the drama between employees (which also leads to stress.)
