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

    Pros

    Very rewarding job as it is in the social services industry. I love what I do and the relationships I have built with the clients. I specifically work in a career one stop center so we assist clients obtain employment and help them become self sufficient. It is an amazing opportunity and you can definitely make a difference in individuals lives.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth within the company, or at least in the field I am in. No salary increases, no employee recognition, Benefits are okay. No sick days, only accrued PTO. I love my co workers, love my job, but I definitely need a challenge and seek the opportunity to advance. Grateful for the experience and opportunity however, Will not be staying.

    Advice to Management

    fight for salary increases! Embrace your employees and reward their work ethic. Acknowledge the challenges faced in this specific industry and act on it. Focus on employee retention.

    I worked at ResCare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    at the time, the management was very employee focused and cared about their employees and clients. I basically got to pick my own hours, working jobs in my area that could take anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours. Most of the jobs were great. They primed us as well as they could on what the client and their needs were so I never felt like I was going in blind. I was able to contact my supervisor at any time of day if I needed her.

    Cons

    I left because new management took over, and they lied to one of my favorite clients by telling her I didn't want to work with her anymore and hiring new people to do my job. They gave away some of my regular jobs to other people, with no explanation or notice.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't get to know the new mangement very long because once they unexpectedly switched everyone's jobs around I didn't have enough hours to stay with the company much longer

    I worked at ResCare (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the clients! It was a wonderful experience! I learned from my clients just as much as they learned from me. The feeling I got at the end of each shift was so fulfilling and humbling.

    Cons

    The senior staff was very disrespectful to the clients and management over looked it because they had been there so long.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of how the clients are being treated and how they feel. Put more time into listening to the clients and not dismissing their feelings!

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

    Pros

    I've worked for many agencies in my 35 years as a home caregiver and ResCare is the best I've seen that really cares for both their employees and clients. One really important issue that I appreciate ResCare the most is that they don't require their employees to have a car...like me. Three years ago this winter, I came into their office desperately looking for a job. After all the hoop-jumping, I was hired.

    Cons

    They are a union company, so they have to follow all the union rules thus all the regulations such as 12 hours of extended learning classes and there is a percentage of your paycheck that they take out for union dues. Other than that, this company is pretty good to work for.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great people to work with at the local level. Some questionable practices.

    Cons

    See title. Hiring always will be a challenge. Lack of training. Upper management talks a good game but doesn't deliver

    Advice to Management

    When you hire someone as an executive director, actually allow them to fulfill that role. Don't micromanage them
