Busy and a constantly on the alert kind of job
It had its great times.
It had its challenging times

Work culture is great if you are full time, not as a casual.

A must to take a course in preventative care management.

Stay away from Azure in Richmond
The job is OK and nothing special. Love working with residents and some of the staff are very helpful and kind. As I am worked for a few houses, I got to know many managers, staff and residents from each house and learnt a lots. However, the manager from Azure house in Richmond is very rude to the staff. I think he has mental health problem. I feel bad for those working at that house. Management is fake and pretend to care about the employees.

I like to work at DDA, the program is comprehensive, cater to the needs of people with developmental disablities
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing clients enjoy their life like everyone else.
The hardest part of the job is seeing clients get frustrated of not being understand.
Pros
in-service training, free on-line courses

Awesome place to work with good compensation!
DDA is the best company I have ever worked for. They value their employees & do whatever it takes to keep the culture a family vibe. The compensation is amazing, and there is plenty of opportunity for growth. The only reason I would leave DDA is to move to a different area.

Good benefits
The pay is okay. The benefits have offset the cost. It really depends on which department you are in and how your coworkers get along with you. I had a great manager that was able to support my needs.

Comfortable place to work at, great company to learn with
They take care of their employees better than many others, especially if staff follow the guidelines. Strict rules regarding salary, overtime and fuel reimbursement are followed. Work safe coverage is given and senior employees are respected.
Pros
Comfortable work conditions in a friendly company
Cons
Sometimes one has to work overtime without being prepared or prior intimation

Enriching and empowering workplace
The Developmental Disabilities Association is a great workplace. I am surrounded by supportive people and always given the opportunity to advance my knowledge and skills with online learning courses and interactions with new people. Some days can be long and unpredictable, but making a difference in other people's lives far outweighs this.
Pros
Training

Working at home is great because I can choose my own hours
A typical day of working at home, is I would contact all of the people in our data base, and ask if they have any clothing to donatem, and house hold items, and if they do, I would arrage a pick up time for the donations, by letting the donar know what time the truck is coming, so that they could have the items ready in a bag outside on their front porch with DDA written on the bag.

There were no co workers to deal with, because I worked at home. The hardest part of the job was

when some of people who promised to donate forgot to follow through, even if some one else reminded them. But for the most part 86% of mine did follow through.


The most enjoyable part of the job was when I would count how many promises of donations I got per hour, and if it totalled to 6.5-7 per hour then I knew I met my quota, and that I had done a great job.
Pros
not wasting time commuting
Cons
there was no cons
