Buckeye Residential Solutions offers more than rewarding careers serving our diverse client base – we also provide extensive employee training, opportunities for advancement, and more valuable benefits to our residential specialists.

Grow Your Skill Set

At Buckeye we offer extensive employee training to ensure our residential specialists have the skills they need to feel confident and well-prepared for caring for their clients with disabilities and co-occurring conditions. 

Before our employees get started on the job, our new employee training includes MUI, OSHA, HIPPA, CPR, First Aid and Medication Administration. We not only provide on-site, client specific training, we also offer continuous training to help our employees manage their clients and extend their knowledge base. These training workshops are led by experts in their respective fields, including Cleveland Clinic psychologists, behavioral therapists, and Portage County Board of Developmental Disabilities trainers and teach our employees important strategies for working with adults with disabilities and challenges. From mental health training to crisis management, behavioral skills training and more, our employee training is integral to our goal of helping our clients live healthy, active lives. Our employees gain the skills they need to provide the services specific to each client’s personalized care plan and help them maintain their independence, protect their safety, and get the most out of their lives!

Achieve Your Professional Goals

Advance your career with Buckeye Residential Solutions’ Employee Development Program. We offer more than jobs – we help get our employees started on a great career path, with no experience needed to start working as a residential specialist. We help our employees achieve their professional goals by working one-on-one with them to identify goals and determine what steps need to be taken to accomplish them. This not only gives our employees a competitive edge in the industry, it also helps them move up the ladder in our company. We choose our promotions from within, enabling our employees to have more opportunities for growth and advancement. Our residential specialists and other employees with 1 year of experience to 5+ years are eligible to advance to positions which lead to house manager, regional manager and program coordinator. This also helps ensure we provide quality services to our client base by promoting employees that are familiar with and have the experience they need to cater to our clients’ needs.

Work That Fits Your Life

No matter what your responsibilities consist of, we understand that it can be difficult to balance work life and home life. At Buckeye Residential Solutions, we offer full-time and part-time work with flexible scheduling – empowering our employees to provide for their families, without having to take away from the time they have to attend to important responsibilities.

We serve two area footprints in northern Ohio – in Ravenna and Toledo – so our employees can choose to work in the area that’s closest to them. This helps ensure convenient commutes and allows our employees to serve and give back to the communities in which they live. At the start of their shifts, residential specialists go directly to their first client which eliminates the needs to report to an office.

Great Benefits Package

We offer competitive starting pay and a comprehensive benefits package. Residential specialist positions start at $11.25/hr. with growth opportunities up to $14/hr. In addition to vacation and PTO, we offer our employees medical and dental benefits, 401K plans, and extensive ongoing training.
