    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at DD Homes Network full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many dedicated long term staff that truly care about the individuals; stable client population; full benefits package including health, vision, dental, and life insurance, 401k match; strong training program at start of employment; wages higher than nearly all of the competitors in the area; the most stable and largest company in the state makes for a very stable career opportunity.

    Cons

    turnover is lower than it was when I worked in healthcare (about half), but still higher than hoped for; on call requirement for management - there is an ebb and flow - I might get almost no calls for weeks and weeks, and then get a whole lot; have to be able to work independently and manage a schedule, and lead a staff team - that can be hard for some people to do. (A lot of people who leave then try to come back when they realize the job was actually a job they miss, and when they do not find comparable jobs or benefits elsewhere.)

    Advice to Management

    It is important for staff to be a leader and a team mate, more than a boss. Be a problem solver with a positive attitude. More emphasis on developing a management style and working with varying personalities would be helpful during training. A set raise schedule for direct support staff. A set employee review schedule to give feedback to employees. It would be nice to see the higher-ups more often to create a better work culture of leadership and teamwork

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at DD Homes Network (Galesburg, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was rather frustrating. My interview was set for a certain time, and I arrived and sat around for at least 30 minutes before the administrator even showed up. I was working another job at that point so I had limited time before I had to get back to work. I applied for the job online, then they asked me to show up in person to fill out another application. (It was the same application, but it was in paper form, which was rather annoying.)
