    I have been working at Emmaus Homes, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Family-like atmosphere: everyone is genuinely interested in who you are as a person; flexible with family/personal needs. Promote from within. In my experience, all of the executive team have an open-door policy and welcome feedback from employees.

    Cons

    Expansion of services creates many open positions, which can be very taxing for employees who must cover open hours. People do not always realize what the job can entail, so there is a high turnover rate in some locations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on retaining staff, and recruiting new staff.

    Pros

    I would say at times it can be challenging. It is also fun. Caring for other's. Enjoy taking client's places.
    Have taken ciient`s for luncheons and craft fairs at Mandeville and St. Charles. I and my clients enjoyed these outings.
    Hayrides and other activities with Recreational Services so much fun. Also Christmas dances and dinners.
    Looking forward for these activities again in the future. My clients already talking about these upcoming events.
    Also enjoy the bowling , arts and crafts and cooking activities with Cindy.
    I and other staff have taken clients to Lambert's where they throw the rolls (Went there for lunch.
    The clients had so much fun as well as staff.
    I was asked by a client on a overnight shift to take her bowling for her Birthday. Iwas like whaaaat.
    I did transport her to go bowling. Was a bit shocked about the time of the request. She asked. (Will you please take me)? I stated this time of night? So off we went. Was fun. There is so much more. Could probably write a book. ☺😊☺

    Cons

    Be patient with clients and co-workers.

    I have been working at Emmaus Homes, Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Unconditional love from those I support just because I care because I am far from perfect.
    Plenty of down time while also plenty of things to occupy my time.
    I get to make someone's life better by doing my job and loving what I do.

    Cons

    There is hygene care. I may not always enjoy the activities that the people I support do, but it is part of my job so I make the best of it. (example: going to church that is not mine, Cardinal's baseball game, dance, movie, out to eat.....wait! These are not cons but pros to the job! I love getting out of the house and passing the time with an activity that is fun)

    Advice to Management

    Be real with the people you interview. Let them know it is not a vacation to work here. It does have some stress and some not so pleasant hygene needed in some of the houses. Promote the fun part of the job.

    Pros

    If you read their mission statement you will know how they operate in general. Their mission statement accurately reflects the daily work accomplished here. I think this is relatively rare that a company's mission statement so accurately reflects what the company really does.

    Cons

    They are good at identifying the changes that need to be made to stay at the cutting edge of the industry but the changes happen very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Emmaus Homes, Inc. (More than a year)

    Pros

    Emmaus Homes is a wonderful place to work, they are very much customer centered when it comes to the clients, but also very staff oriented also. They have been developing new positions over the last year to give all staff the chance to progress and grow within the agency. Where the clients are concerned I have seen amazing progress as they transition out into the new community homes, I have seen them become more out going and confident in themselves, and enjoying their new community living. Working for Emmaus Homes brings with it a lot of job satisfaction that you just get working for other companies.

    Cons

    It would be better if they provided vision insurance
