I have been working at David & Margaret Home part-time
Plenty of support and training from management. Clearly set procedures and high level of ethical standards. The shifts are great for on-call. They always need help. I haven't been unable to get a shift since I have worked for D and M.
Like most group homes, the shift can be chaotic and stressful. You are working with adolescent girls who are victims of abuse and neglect. The only con for the establishment itself that I can see is the fact the pay is not enough compared with the duties and responsibilities of the job.
Advice to Management
Perhaps look at ways and avenues to increase employee pay in order to attract more qualified staff.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at David & Margaret Home (La Verne, CA) in April 2013.
Applied online. Received a call a few weeks later for a interview. It was group based. Higher management gave a presentation on what the job entails, pay, and expectations. Then they held individual interviews
