I like about the employer

There are many different positions available within this agency and there is some room to move up.

I dislike about the employer

The Center does not treat their employees well who are over worked and underpaid. Everything is political. Managers sleep with their employees and manipulate the system and keep their jobs. I worked as one of two Assistant Managers in a house where I made $1.75 less an hour than the other Assistant Manager. He was male and significantly less qualified with zero education and carried about a fourth of the shared workload. There was absolutely no negotiating my pay.

Maternity leave is a joke. You have to use your paid time off first and then after that you only receive half-pay for a short period of time. Then you have to fight managers to get time to fill bottles, despite it being illegal to deny.

Paid time off is also a joke. The only people that receive anything even remotely close to livable paid time off are people that have been with the Center for over five years. After two years with the agency I still took almost two months to accumulate one eight hour shift of paid time off. Not to mention, you do not have separate sick time. If you catch the flu (which you probably caught at work), you have to take your time out of your paid time off. You get mandated to shifts regularly and there is zero flexibility. Directors and Human Resources play favorites and do not spend any time in the houses getting to know the population they serve or how their decisions are affecting them. There is a ridiculous amount of turn over, because staff are treated so poorly and have no incentive to stay. Yet the CEO, according to the agency tax forms makes almost $400,000. Meanwhile, many staff can hardly afford transportation to get to work.

The only good thing about this agency is the individuals I worked with. It was hard to leave them knowing that they do not get the care they deserve.

Suggestions for improvement

  • First, they need to hire more managers/administrators who have college educations. Second, they need to pay managers more.

I like about the employer

Helping the residents who live in group homes. This is the ONLY reason I decided to work here.

I dislike about the employer

Other staff do not work together, managers think they "rule the world" even though the majority of them DO NOT have a college education, and managers play "favorites" amongst employees. I worked hard and was treated like dirt because the manager did not like me! If you were not liked management and administration would frequently find faults with the smallest issues simply to derive pleasure out of making an employees life a "living hell." Yet, anytime they made mistakes, and it happened OFTEN, it was "swept under the rug."
