  1. THIS IS A JOKE! If HCRS is such a great place to work, why are there CONSTANT press releases about new hires? Sounds to me like staff turnover is extremely high.

  2. And why is it News, because they are self promoting themselves so they can get more "Patients or Clients" not sure the proper terminology. The more they get the more tax money they get. It's not news when the JELD-WEN Hires or the Car Dealer Hires or when McDonalds hires because they are not living off the government and us tax payers. Self Promoting a Non Profit! yeah right....

  3. HCRS sounds like a scam.

  4. Do any of you constant complainers have any idea what you are talking about? 12:02 says it "sounds to me like staff turnover is extremely high."
    Roger, it's "news" because HCRS is a public agency. McDonald's and Jeld-Wen aren't.
    And 6:57 must belong to the same think tank as 12:02 because he also uses "sounds like"
    Instead of carping about this ... and everything else ... try doing some research on the subject, instead of guessing. You'll discover HCRS is a vital organization that provides outstanding service.

    1. yeah they do. like filling will hunter houses with their clients. importing them from other states none the less. the best is the way they feed of the courts.

    2. so why don't you tell us,why they go thru so much help,if you have all the amswer's
