    I have been working at ResCare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Not a bad hourly wage to start.
    -Help children and young adults with autism.
    -Time off is usually not an issue if you give supervisors time to find a sub
    -Off work in late afternoon, unless you work in-home

    Cons

    -Depending on who you work with you may get spit on, bit, hit, kicked etc...
    -Per Diem
    -No benefits
    -No real opportunities for advancement
    -School vacation days are not paid
    -Not guaranteed full time

    Advice to Management

    Bring back benefits! It would make such a difficult job better and possibly keep employees longer to lessen turn over.

    I worked at ResCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Abundance of hours, Union benefit, Mandation pay (double pay), Holidays, Paid Time Off, Great CoWorkers, Learn skills that are invaluable outside of work as far as caregiving, first aid, etc

    Cons

    Long hours, usually sites are shorthanded, Turnover rate is very high (the job is explained well in training, but you don't get the full effect until your floor training), Being new on the job and inexperienced makes it hard on you your first few months

    Advice to Management

    Better record keeping, No more passing the buck...pick certain people to delegate duties to and follow through.
