    Former Employee - Resident Care Aide/Med Tech in Tampa, FL

    I worked at ResCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large company, provided all required training and certification at no cost to the employee. They are located across the country and provide many different types of health care services.

    Cons

    Transferring to Florida from Colorado. Florida would not accept my transfer paperwork after i had moved, they had me reapply, go through all training again. I assume this was so that they did not have to pay me the wages I had made in Colorado. My income dropped significantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ResCare Community Advantage Management, very involved and supportive. ResCare Florida management not very involved.

    Pros

    The staff and branch manager are friendly and very efficient. This company is stress free and kind to both the clients and the patient care assistants. A great working environment.

    Cons

    Organization is not too good since they relocate to a new site. For instant, employee time sheets, meeting with the case workers, call back from case workers, and case workers assigned new clients with no profile to PCA).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interpersonal and customer services are a must in working with the public daily.

    Pros

    rewarding if you like helping people and money is not a primary concern of yours
    good flexibility, as long as you communicate your needs in time office and management will work with you to the best of their ability

    Cons

    the hourly rates are sub standard, leads and home managers have a lot of responsibilities but little to no influence on hiring and firing or disciplinary actions. This makes it difficult to get a consistent level of performance among employees and it's just the luck of the draw who you work with. Some houses are great, some are less than stellar and it can change at the drop of a dime. Most important criteria whether you should hire on or not is the house manager you're working for as the rest of the employees have a very high turnover rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive power should be shared with those you put in charge. It is ludicrous to have leaders without any decision making power. It only works as far as it does because most hourly employees are blissfully unaware of the situation.

    I have been working at ResCare part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    working with the consumers is a plus

    Cons

    too long of a list, but most;y its the house managers. the one I work for is very lazy, likes to falsify documents, is very spiteful, and I only been working there for 9 months, and seen her 2x already get staff involved to help her fire 2 employees. We break our backs to help her out, and she dont help us at all. So sick of all of it. And its a waste when she is called in to cover a shift, because she doesnt do anything but sit in her office, and chat on the phone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAY your employees what they are worth. i never heard of or worked for a company where if you have an issue with a fellow staff, a statement must be written in order for the house manager to do something about it.
