    They don't like to pay what you're worth. Also you do more work that is not included in you're job description.

    I have been working at REM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed coworkers, fast pace job(if you're into it), break time 2-15 min breaks and 1-30 min lunch. Health and Dental insurance (you pay alot for it though)

    Cons

    ignorance of the team leaders, if you're good at what you do they will over work you, pay is min wage, they don't like to give raises- once you're there after a year if they decide to it goes up 20 cents (if your late etc it goes lower)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more caring to workers. Focus on the work going into shipments and out to stores instead of giving workers time out for coming in 5 mins late.. but those same employees would stay later and work an extra shift to make up for it. Shame on you!

    Pros

    Rewarding, and gives opportunities to better your diversity in communication skills.

    Cons

    Training courses are not detailed enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer training classes that will help the PC, and the Lead Staff know how to utilize the budget with menus and understanding nutrition.

    I worked at REM

    Pros

    The clients and their families were the best. I loved most of the people that I supervised as well. REM was a very tolerant employer.

    Cons

    My direct supervisor on up were only concerned with how they looked to family and county agencies. They did not care about what was best for the client or the employees doing the direct care. Management also micromanaged staff and it was very challenging to meet managers expectations. All employees were treated differently, there was no consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop saying that you support the people doing direct care and actually show it. Offer raises and other benefits. Offer medical insurance that people can afford.
