      Former Employee - Residential Counselor in Reading, PA
      Doesn't Recommend

      I worked at InVision Human Services

      Pros

      One pro is that many of the positions are remotely managed/supervised. Clients are provided a home which is in some cases located up 2 hours away from the main office.

      Cons

      The training for residential counselors is insufficient, many staff are thrown into homes with clients who they have never worked with and have to learn quickly the clients behaviors. Some staff have reported being assaulted and harmed by clients (even though that comes with the territory in the human services field). Also, I gave them 2 weeks notification as required per their policy when I quit, only to have my supervisor...

      Advice to Management

      I have been working at InVision Human Services full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Two and a half day block shifts with four and a half days off. Lots of opportunities for overtime if you are willing and able to do it.

      Cons

      You are expected to stay overnight without pay at the individuals home. Coworkers and supervisors can be very unproffesional with their interactions with individuals and other staff. There are a lot of cliques, crossing boundaries, and inappropriate relationships between support staff and supervisors so when a long time DSP is crossing boundaries, not doing their job accordingly or working well with other co-workers the...

      Advice to Management

      It is normal to develope friendships in a work place but, importantly you all must remember your roles as supervisors and managers. Good leaders are impartial and look at situations from all sides. Mabey offering 8 hour shifts instead of block shifts for the harder to staff more challenging individuals will help keep those individuals homes staffed since 56 hour block shifts is a lot of hours to be spending with an individual...
