    Pros

    Ok pay ..... that's about it

    Cons

    The most unprofessional company I have ever worked for. I hated going to work. .. high turnover in management due to inexperienced managers being hired.. no chance for RA's to advance even though they know more than the managers. Slavery still exists there. .. the company have no regards to staff bring human with human flaws. .. You get written up for breathing the wrong way.... with the office it's them and us and they make you feel like your dumb with nothing to say. If you have an opinion you will probably get written up. Oh did I mention you get written up .. and the people writting you up are the who maniacs in management or the office... u cannot change your schedule of swap shifts with anyone. If your late u will get fired after 4 times. If your sick u will get fired for job abandonment. If you say or do anything out of place you will get transferred.

    Damned if you do damned if you don't .... great company if your dumb got nothing to say and happy to take crap from a bunch of power crazy office workers who just love to prove you did somethin wrong. .....

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Good Relationship With Other RAs

    Cons

    Crazy, unexpected work hours. They do not want you to have a life of your own. They expect you to live your life around the residents schedule. One day they schedule you from 1:30p-12:00a... Then another day you will be scheduled for 6a-3:30p. Oh and you must come in even on your day off if you have a staff meeting. If you are 4 minutes late regardless of traffic, car problems, emergency, they will write you up. If your shift ends at 12am and a resident is admitted into the hospital at the same time you must stay regardless of any responsibility you have at home, or they will write you up for abandonment of job. They throw tons of assignments on you and they give you tons of paper work to do without going over the ways to correct them. They are quick to write you up instead of explaining what you did wrong or giving you a chance to fix it. Worse job I ever had in my life. Oh and don't try to get in touch with any supervisors because you have to call the main office and tell the receptionist all your personal business and if she finds it necessary for your supervisor to know, she wants you to write down your problem no matter how personal, and fax it over. Even if you are bleeding to death and the supervisor is sitting in the office they will not put you through. Very unprofessional and disrespectful office workers. They do not care about the welfare or safety of employees thèy just want a body around to do labor work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slavery is over... You can't treat your employees like they are animals and they must jump when you tell them to. You need to give RAs more credit and praise. We have to clean up poop and throw up all day, not to mention we are exposed to a lot of dangerous elements such as tuberculosis. Train your managers to stop writing up employees especially new ones when they do something wrong especially when it is the managers job to make sure the employees understand what they are doing. We are human beings not just employees, one day this company is going to find themselves in the middle of a big lawsuit!

    Pros

    great compensation and bonus package. good job for college kid or someone with less education.

    Cons

    company culture and morale suck. extremely high employee turnover rate. rare to no over time opportunities. no degree, no advancement opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually work in a RA's position for 1 week. Give as much praise as criticism. Take feedback from employees seriously especially RA's being as though they are hands on.
