    Pros

    I have worked for several home care agencies. ResCare is by far one of the best. I felt that their pre employment orientation was very detailed and answered all the questions I had. The office staff was great. I felt that the staff was willing to listen to my concerns and work through any issues and or problems with clients and schedules. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a caregiver or for employment as a caregiver.

    Cons

    Because I chose to continue my education and had to resign my position before taking my HCA test I am unable to be hired and put through the training again, but was told I would be hired if I paid for the HCA training out of pocket. I would love to work for them again but am unable to afford to pay for the training.

    Pros

    Amazing mission (assisting some of the Nation's most vulnerable of populations). As it is with any job...it is what you make it. Love my coworkers, never dread coming to work every day. Complicated business model will stretch you to grow. Tons of room for advancement for the right folks.

    Cons

    Due to the populations served this can be a tough "gig", definitely not for everyone. Revenue is dependent on Medicaid reimbursement, so not a company that runs on a large margin (which means salaries aren't always the most competitive). Insurance costs are high, but that's unfortunately unavoidable thanks to Obamacare.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within whenever possible. Offer the highest starting salary that you can each time you hire. Regular, performance based increases should be happening.

    Rescare provided varied training and numerous clients to work with whether in the patient's home or at a facility.

    If working specifically with certain age groups clients may be scarce, all dependent on location.
