I worked at Almost Family part-time for more than a year

ProsYou set your own schedule.

ConsThe company will change your schedule and not tell you. If they don't get paper work by the time they decide to close payroll then you do not get paid for the full amount of time you put in on that week but it will be on the next check. The office manager is also very disorganized.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to get your stuff together. It is very concerning when people count on their job to pay them for the work that they did that week and be shorted on their check.

Pretty good, probably won't stay over a few years though

I have been working at Almost Family

Proslove their Senior Advocacy mission, good sales training, they will do free care for some patients, the CEO is great and really seems to care about the employees

Consthe benefits and salary aren't competitive with other companies in the area (specifically clinical staff), no retirement plan, they only match a micro amount to your contribution after you've been there a year, they micromanage alot

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your leaders under you and ease up on the micromanagement, look at combining your sick and vacation and personal time into one bank (some people never call in sick).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
