    I have been working at ResCare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best reason to work here is that you really care for the people ResCare supports, adults with disabilities, the elderly, etc.

    Cons

    The downside is that this company is for profit, and as such has to put the need for profit ahead of what may be in the best interests of those they support. Do not expect to ever get a raise- even if you've worked direct care for ResCare for many years. They do not compensate competitively, you will be better off seeking a job with another company that provides the same type of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to the experience and expertise of their managers and directors. In fact, involving them in the decision making process is one of the best ways to leverage their skills and abilities. Stop giving lip service to the ResCare way, if you don't actually intend to utilize what that mission statement lays out in regard to how employees are treated.

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

    Pros

    I was a litte doutful of this place when I started working here. But it turned out to be pretty cool. I loved the managerrs that were there and they were always there to help. I just worked inside peoples homes and helped them with daily erruns. I guess there is a bunch of different Rescares this one is based in Gallipollis, OH. They reimbersed for driving and the work was really easy.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours can be a lot, but if your lookin for a good paycheck, this a great place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep workin on building the company in the area. If I didn't have to move, I would be ther for life.
