    I have been working at Senior Helpers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to help people then this the job for you. If you want to get rich quick then this is not the job for you. The rewards come often when a client smiles at you or simply says thank you. I feel great at the end of my day knowing I made someone's day a bit happier.

    Cons

    No insurance for part time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good works.

    Pros

    Senior Helpers has allowed me to broaden my skill set with various clients, their family members and the ALF's that I have been privileged to work in. Although the industry is challenging and each new client brings their own challenges, I find it a rewarding atmosphere. The owners constantly seek new and better ways to educate the community and to bring awareness to the diseases that afflict the geriatric population the most. I find it refreshing to work for a small business rather than a larger corporation. Small business's seem to have the ability to personalize your employment experience. The CEO is able to "touch" his employee's and his clients with a positive impact whereas a large corporation, you have all the "red tape". You will NEVER get a CEO in person at a large corporation.

    Cons

    I do not have any immediate Cons

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer the personalized experience!

    Pros

    Friendly office environment, will put you on call if you ask

    Cons

    Give you the run around when asking for more hours. Kind of like they want to work the system. Won't pay me more to travel an hour or more. Not even milage.

    Advice to Management

    You're always posting ads online for more help but have cut back our hours. Maybe if you gave us full time hours instead of cutting us back and giving us the run around you'd have enough workers.

    I have been working at Senior Helpers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    found a job in a recession

    Cons

    this company is a JOKE. I work for the one in central San Diego. started in 2013. Have not had a raise. When I ask them about it, my emails get ignored and my phone calls get "I'll have someone call you back.". They offer no bennies and no medical, dental or vision insurance. No paid holidays, no pto, no paid sick leave. They have no intention of ever offering these benefits. No more than 20 hrs a week at best. They call at the last minute asking if you can take on another client. They don't listen and they don't know who is working what hrs. They has me attend a "required" dementia training class. I drove all the way out to their office. It took me over an hr to get there. When I got there, they told me that the class was canx. Nobody bothered to call my cell phone and tell me that. I was comped for 1 hr of pay and a $5 starbucks gift card that they already had in the office for office staff birthdays. Place SUCKS! GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN! BTW, no support in this office what so ever.

    Advice to Management

    get it together people! You are all incompetent and you communication with your employees stinks. Stop blowing off your employees if they have a question about raises and bennies. Don't expect us to drop everything for you at the last minute!

    I have been working at Senior Helpers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love my clients and the office staff are nice people, they have amazing trainings and I love their philosophy

    Cons

    I once missed work because no one told me they changed my schedule, getting nothing for pay, driving all over for 1 hr shifts, I even occasionally nap in my car because they will have me so 48 hrs almost straight at times, there is no such thing that if i get called in I get time and a half, my week starts with 30 hrs on my schedule and by the end of the week I'm up to 50+ they don't treat all clients equily

    Advice to Management

    Reward is with pay raised and time and a half of we get called in, provide more opptoional trainings and monitor staffs rude comments about clients

    Pros

    Good, facility based assignments with long term care facilities. Pay is fair and competitive

    Cons

    Not enough assignments, notice is too short, typically same day.

    Advice to Management

    Try to contract with more facilities on Peninsula. More facility work and less one on one home health care
