I have been working at ResCare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I feel like I am making a difference in the consumers lives. When I get them to smile or accomplish something it makes everything worth it. This job is so fulfilling.

Cons

I feel like we do not get paid enough for what we do. I also really do not like that we lose people a lot. My manager does not seem to care about the consumers or the staff. It's sometimes really hard to deal with staff.

    I have been working at ResCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have many resources, and training is very important for staff development. I love my position and working for the company.

    Cons

    The health care offered is terrible and the wages paid to staff are very low for the labor market.

    Advice to Management

    ResCare needs to increase the salary paid to staff and consider raises and bonuses in order to keep quality staff. Hiring less staff and paying them more is better than more staff and paying them less because eventually the valuable staff will move on.

    I have been working at ResCare full-time

    Pros

    Being able to make a difference in the lives of the developmentally disabled consumers that we serve.

    Cons

    Sub-standard wages, with no raises in over 8 years. While the cost of living has sky-rocketed, ResCare has not provided it's employees even a cost of living raise in over 8 years. Upper management has a tendency to show favoritism to certain departments over others and tends to ignore major issues that arise, by 'brushing them under the rug.' Unable to recruit quality, dependable, reliable and qualified employees, due to poor wages and no opportunity for raises.

    Advice to Management

    Begin providing yearly cost of living raises, to allow employees to at least live above the poverty level.
