    I worked at ResCare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employees (mostly temps)work very hard to help support people receiving gov. aide. On paper the services offered could support needy people seeking employment and due to the efforts of the employees some people actually do find work.

    Cons

    The reality,is that ResCare's (recipient of a large slice of gov. contract) ability to provide consistent and equal services to 'participants' is less than 50%. not exactly a record to be proud of. The ResCare services require a duplication of gov. computer system, resulting in unrealistic data entry deadlines regardless of the weekly over time employees put in. Employment Case Managers job is primarily data entry. Participants hours are ResCare's bread and butter, so data entry is the focus. Also effecting the delivery of services is the enormous data entry errors occurring by temp. employees who receive half the pay that social workers receive for similar work, sporadic and inconsistently training on gov. policies and are treated unsympathetically. Some services require testing be provided in home language:which does not happen. The harsh and selective communication by their director, and 'team leaders' leads to employee frustration, low moral and high turn over. Employment is inherently temporary, and you could be let go any time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Respect and Care you say you award 'participants' should apply to employees. Otherwise the message you send is 'do as I say not as I do'. More importantly, until the ResCare CEO takes notice of: the unequal delivery of gov. services, time dedicated to the duplication and errors of data entry, poor training and poor retention of employees, the company delivery of critical gov. services will remain mediocre.
