Great place to work and close to home!

Feels good to assist clients with their day-to-day needs and help with their quality of life maintenance. Great place to work minus the politics. (But, I guess that's almost impossible to get away from :)

Chaotic work environment

I have been there, seen everything and can only say that if you are planing to work there be prepared for constant complaints and judgements from cooworkers and management. They are just looking to see whats wrong with everything and will never acknowlage what you are doing right. Very stressful and chaotic work environment, not worth any money.

Great family friendly environment to work in.

a typicle day at work was very physical and fast paced.I learned patience and how to prioritize importance in my job.The management could have been better organized and more compationate.My co-workers were like my second family very caring and loveable.The hardest part of the job was not being able to meet every ones needs in a shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing and being with my co-worker family on a daily basis.

Pros

Friends and family environment

Cons
