    Pros

    Medical insurance is paid and that is it.

    Cons

    They treat you like your below avg intelligence. You will not get paid for what you work. They mess with your mileage, drive time, holiday pay, hours, your wages in general. They lie to you most of the time. If you treat your employees this badly it affects your overall clients health and they do not care about client if they can get to you.

    Advice to Management

    If you have this bad of reputation in so. Illinois then you need a director change and the one over her. What part if its not working and your going through a lot of employees and work comp suits that your not getting. Every ethical rule is being broken. Every law is being broken.

    I have been with Addus for many years. Seniority counts for nothing here. Raises don't exist!

    Pros

    I love taking care of the clients, and offering them the services they need to better their lives. That is the ONLY pro to working here.

    Cons

    They can't provide full time, or even much part time work to long term employees more often then not. I haven't received a raise in over 5 years now, and they say it is due to Health and Welfare not increasing our pay rates? I am sure that is not the case, not for this long anyway. The supervisors do not do their jobs, the client paperwork in the files is never current, nor do they do the employee evaluations on time(once every 2-3 years) but as there are no raises being given, I guess it doesn't really matter that they ignore that part of their jobs as well, right? There is no holiday pay, even if you work major holidays, it's not even time and a half pay rate. There is no paid vacation, even after 10+ years, and there is no paid sick leave, and worst of all, they do not have any kind of insurance or retirement benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Give yearly raises to the hard working care providers, even if they are only .25 cents a year. Offer insurance, even if there is a co-pay for employees. Pay time and a half for holidays if a care provider works the holiday. Offer 1 paid sick day every 3 months, which seems totally reasonable. Figure out how you can get the office managers to get their supervisors do their jobs.

    Pros

    Great Place to work overall. I enjoyed meeting every client that I had. Management was very welcoming for all employees. Very Flexible hours, great for Student's just looking for a part-time job.

    Cons

    Management is in need of better communication skills between people in the office and people in the field (Clients Homes). Didn't get the hours I was told I'd get when hired.

    Pros

    You get to know many people and make some new friends. The feeling that you've helped someone to stay in their home so they don't have to go to a care home.

    Cons

    Dead end, low paying job. There's no way to advance unless you are a relative or you're a pet of management. Management is always short staffed.Management never calls when there's a cancellation. No schedule you can access. You have to keep schedule in your head or make your own. When a client passes away or leaves Addus you have no idea what has happened to that client. You have to be able to compartmentalize your emotions so you don't get hurt.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors should have some experience in the field they're supervising. They shouldn't hire a supervisor just because they are a relative. Also, they should be a little older than barely out of high school. Management should follow up with clients. Not just tell them they'll call back and then never do it. Call us as early as you can when you know an aid is unable to service a client. We would appreciate more than an hour notice when you've known about it for an entire day or more.
