    Pros

    They are very understanding when it comes to your family problems. There is always room for moving up if you have a free schedule. Also allow dental insurance if over 20 hours

    Cons

    Its an on call position until you are offered a permenant position which is very hard to balance out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you guys are doing well.

    Pros

    Nice to know you're helping someone on a daily basis, I love my clients and its a very rewarding job to have. If you're looking for an average job from 9am to 5pm this is a great choice

    Cons

    Stressful work environment, they are a kentucky based company so do not expect any raises. Be prepared to handle a high amount of stress and making decisions that can directly effect people in a negative way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give out raises!!! People who work for this company are extremely underpaid for what they do on a daily basis

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

    Pros

    The pay was better for the weekends.The PC was always there to answer your calls and help out even for the smallest things. The company reimburses you for outings. The individuals are well taken care of medically and are provided with things they need. The individuals appreciate you despite the high turnover rate

    Cons

    I applied for a management position and was given are regular care staff position.Although I got paid more for the weekends I had to work 12=14 hour shifts. Its not healthy to be in such a stressful environment, with lives in your hands, for that long. orientation training is good but the in home training was not. I felt that i was thrown into alot of things. You have a time period to wait before you can be promoted, or transfer houses. My complaint about the company itself goes hand in hand with the quality of staff hired. The house I worked in had staff that were emotionally abusive to my clients. i.e. cussing at them or in front of them, raising voice, threatening to take away things or worse, being rude. The staff were turned in but nothing was done and I am outraged. During the investigation interview my accusations were wrote off as being "stern" and treating them like adults by the management. I have spoken with other homes and it is WELL known how the staff treat our individuals in my particular home. I am not new to this field of work and I know the line between abuse and sternness. The staff in my home are not supportive of each other and catty but alas when you put all females in a home its what you should expect. I am leaving the company due to the conflict with my moral and ethical values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Abuse is abuse no matter how you sugar coat it. Pay close attention when you hire people, not everyone is cut out for this line of work.

    I worked at ResCare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff were great to work with, and ofcourse the individuals we served were such a joy. It was nice having friday through sunday off.

    Cons

    Lack of money to buy activities for site activities. Low pay for employees with no offer of raises..period...we were told they dont give raises. Health insurance was offered but cost so much that nobody actually got it. High turn over rate because of the poor pay. Felt bad for the clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money and give your facilities an overhaul. Offer incentives for staff to stay with the company, raises would be nice and seriously look into better medical benefits for employees that are more affordable!

    Pros

    You get to work with some really amazing clients. There are always extra hours to pick up. If you work the week on/week off schedule it is GREAT!

    Cons

    No increase in pay in over 7 years. Benefits are horrible. You're better off to be on your spouses plan or government assisted program.
