    Pros

    The staff who are working with the clients although the pay is poor.

    Cons

    The pay is low. There aren't any opportunities for pay increases. If there's a promotion, the pay is still low. Some management is poorly trained. Decisions are made from Corporate with little or no regard to how things are down in the field and how those decisions will affect the field.

    listen to the needs of employees instead of labeling the clients disabilities as the problem.

    I have been working at ResCare full-time

    Pros

    Interview was scheduled in a timely manner. Managers were friendly and responsive. National company with a solid market base in most states.

    Cons

    Follow-through is slow so be patient. It seems there is a general lack of organization in upper management, which may be due to a major restructuring in some markets. Training is minimal, at best so be ready to "wing it" for the first few weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Better training for different levels of employment. Too much information in a one week training for an inexperienced, direct care worker, and no training for upper management personnel.

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

    Pros

    Free movies and sometimes meals, not much else. Basically unlimited overtime, but you become depressed. So, actually just free movies and meals.

    Cons

    Horrible employees, pay, hours, and management. This company can use a complete overhaul. It's absolutely necessary. Don't work here. You'll like it at first, but after a couple months you'll be at a new job.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your staff who actually do their job, and give us performance based raises at the very least.

    Pros

    Guaranteed Hours
    Help those with disabilities

    Cons

    Low Pay
    No guaranteed time to go home
    No breaks

    Advice to Management

    Fill your shifts to where there are 2 people scheduled to work in homes where there are more than 1 client present. People get stuck at work way too often.

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

    Pros

    Good Place To Work, Being Employed By Them I did not have to ever worry about getting to my cases, They had drivers dispatched to take every caregiver to their assigned cases.

    Cons

    The only downside I experienced was being on a case too long because my relief caregiver did not show up. And getting injured while on a case and was never compensated for my injuries.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have for management is that in the future, If any caregiver is injured at a case they are on make sure they get full compensation for it! I got injured trying to keep the client from injury when she had a dizzy spell and collapsed, and fell on me!
