    I have been working at ResCare part-time

    Pros

    If you looking to pick up extra hours there always available. Clients are great!

    Cons

    There's a lot of lazy staff who complain about every little thing

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing staff to run the house. Most of the time the ones complaining are the ones not actually working.

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

    Pros

    I have great full time, long term (senior) staff who have helped me learn the business the past two years. I have been able to put together a team of people that I trust and we work together in a small office. I know the care my staff (and I) provide is the best care my consumers will receive.

    Cons

    Although I am apart of 'management' the upper management is very unorganized and leaves my team and I to do and learn most things on our own. That appears to be be getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions and stick to the plans. If you want to grow the company, pay attention to the direct care staff and pay then better.

    I was very fortunate to have acquired a position with ResCare Workforce Services, I'm doing everything I have always wanted in a Job, the pay ratio for my postion seems to be above average, and they have great benefits. I enjoy the feedom they allow me to have in my postion, and it encourages me to do the best job I can to show my appreciation.

    ResCare is not a State position, so we do not get the allocated holidays off like the Mo. Job Center employees receive.

    Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of the team. I wouldn't really change much of anything,.

    I worked at ResCare part-time

    Pros

    The clients are pretty good overall.

    Cons

    The staff is pinched with funds and do not train their supervisors very well on how to supervise employees and clients. Most have years of experience but lack training on interpersonal skills.

    Advice to Management

    Funds spent on good training is worth the price in the long run for safety, service, and retention.

    Pros

    I've been working for ResCare for the last 6 years. They're an incredible company to work for. You have the hours you want if you are a faithful employee and have availability. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Management is terrible about communication. Some of the supervisors are so full of lies they wouldn't know the truth if it was dancing in front of them.

    Advice to Management

    Overall the company is great, I'll only leave when I advance my career. I'd just like some consistency from the supervisors.

    Pros

    It’s a job. I have gained a lot of experience working here but I’ll be glad when it’s over, my stress level is out the roof.

    Cons

    Over worked and under paid. I am slowly drowning ever day and the company makes promises to help new employees but doesn’t help the ones they already have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep staff happier and get some help
