Q: I love my job at ACR—what kind of career opportunities do you have?
A: You’re not alone! ACR employees agree that it’s an awesome place to work—the company was voted the #1 workplace in Minnesota twice in the past three years! The secret to all the happiness around here is that we work hard to help employees develop their skills and play to their strengths. There are lots of career opportunities that enable you to do that at ACR. Here are some examples:
With over 50 work sites, we need a lot of site supervisors to ensure that our care is fine-tuned to the needs and interests of the individuals being supported. Employees with experience as direct care professionals are usually first in line for openings as shift supervisors, residential coordinators, live-in residential supervisors or senior residential supervisors. These are all fantastic opportunities to gain professional experience in coordinating health care, staffing and activities.
One of best things about ACR’s supervisory positions is the thorough training ACR provides. Supervisors report that they feel well-prepared for the various aspects of their work.
To learn more more about supervisory roles at ACR, talk to your current RS. Or you can contact Lead Program Director Sarah Hawks to find out more information. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of ACR’s specialties is providing residential care for people with a high level of medical needs. To do that well–to make it possible for a medically fragile person to live in a home, not a hospital–requires strong nursing oversight. Therefore, ACR employs shift LPNs and RNs, as well as case manager nurses. Nursing grads with experience as direct care professionals at ACR are usually first in line for openings in nursing positions at ACR. For more information contact your house nurse, or call ACR’s HR director at 651-294-4706.
