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

    Pros

    Great clients and most of the other staff were great to work with and treated the clients with care and respect. Nice and clean home in good neighborhoods

    Cons

    They will hire mostly friends of the supervisors so everyone is treated differently and if your not friends with them you get crappy shifts and the people they hire are just their fir the money not for comparison care and when they don't get the money they expect they just leave without notice witch makes it hard for the rest of the employees

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who want to make a difference in the life of the people they take care of bit just a pay check out this

    I have been working at ResCare part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well You will learn Social Skills, while You are Assisting The Consumers on becoming more independent, in the Community. I'd never had The Social Skills, I have now until I came to ResCare.

    Cons

    Well for the most part it's that You never know what You're getting Yourself into, until You really familiarize Yourself with the Consumers, and Their needs., getting adjusted to the way that You approach Certain Situations.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the starting pay for ResCare Community Living Inc. here in Austin, Texas wasn't so low. You could have more of the positions filled if the pay was right., here in Austin I've been at The Company for a total of 5 Years, to have them take Me down from $8.25/hourly to $7.75/hourly, plus I had to give up My PTO., that's not right so alot of the Employees at the Austin Location has yet resigned or was Terminated.
