    EduCate (ResCare in El Paso, Texas) is completely unorganized and overworks salary employees.

    Pros

    ResCare helps developmentally disabled adults learn everyday skills.

    Cons

    ResCare as a company is very good, the EduCare division in El Paso doesn't teach the skills I was trained to help clients learn. The home managers are overworked to the point of ridiculousness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ResCare needs to clean up EduCare and have one home manager per home instead of one manager per three homes. They also need to stop expecting managers to work seven days a week.

    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.
