I have been working at WestCare full-time (More than a year)

Pros

If you enjoy helping people in need and want to get paid for it, this is the place for you. Westcare is one of the very few companies in Nevada that make a positive impact on the community where it needs it most.

Cons

It's never a glamorous job, but helping people in need is the greatest reward.

Advice to Management

None. They take care of their employees as well as the community they serve.

    Clients are the reason we're here, co-workers make it difficult to focus on central goal

    Pros

    Clients willing to better themselves make it worth while, Paid sick and vacation days, consistent hours, weekends off

    Cons

    Insurance is not that great and expensive, co-workers personalities can be intense, constant gossip, inconsistent work environment - you move around a lot

    Advice to Management

    Pick a facility for each program and keep it consistent, not just for the employees but for the families in residential who need that routine and familiarity. Better food for residential treatment, I have tried it and it is not healthy for anyone.

    Pros

    I loved working with the inmates. They were the reason I went to work for Westcare. I believed in the mission. I belleved in the work I was doing and felt I could make a difference.

    Cons

    mangement staff is poor. They don't care about direct care staff. Pay is terrible. Benefits are terrible. Most staff are more corrupt than the inmates we are working with.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house!! Get rid of your management and bring in some caring, honest, respectful people.
