    I worked at Visiting Angels as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    As long as my client was living there were hours

    Cons

    When clients decease they will not call and let you know if something else is available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it is not good for the upper management not to even call and let your staff no what is going on.

    Pros

    Family owned .. management makes sure everything is done to their standards
    Trainer was fun and made any issues we had seem pointless by working thru them with us

    Cons

    Don't pay as much as other companies.. had to do a 16 hour training and then a orientation to be hired..because I didn't have my dl I couldn't work even though j never drove pt around or had them in my car at any time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to step there game up and pay higher wages ..give more assignments and reevaluate some of their policies

    I worked at Visiting Angels part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    sounds like the employees like working with and taking care of people

    Cons

    Can't believe they pay their employees so poorly! $5-$7.50 hr for being responsible for an ill person and spending sometimes 24 hrs with someone and getting no overtime pay or compensation? Poor communication! they management sounds like they don't care about the employees and aren't willing to make them want to make this a career. with reviews like I've been reading, I would never work for this company and not sure I would engage them to take care of my invalid dad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, take their suggestions to heart. Happy employees make good employees! Work with them, pay them better. Curious as to why your employees won't go to someone's home if there is a family member there?

    I have been working at Visiting Angels

    Pros

    The BEST reasons (which are MY reasons) to work for Visiting Angels, is the incredible experiences you have helping the elderly. ALL the HUGS, KISSES, & "THANK YOU's" that I receive from my Clients, MAKE MY DAY... EVERY DAY!! I know that my work is helping to make someone else's life easier & nicer ... and often means the difference of an older person being able to stay in their own home, or not!! .... & that MAKES THEIR DAY!!!

    Cons

    I am not sure exactly what is happening currently, but there are OBVIOUSLY problems in the Office!! I've been told that the lady who does the scheduling, has been off sick ... & is now off, ... on vacation. No one else seems to be able to back her up!! (???) The couple of Office Workers, seem confused, untrained, "don't know how to do the scheduling" ... & appear to be VERY SHORT-STAFFED, etc. etc.!!! There are some SEVERE REAL PROBLEMS?!?!? I am NEW ... so I don't really have any other time(s), etc.to compare to .... but, I HAVE been in the workforce for over 15 years, held management positions, etc. ... & I've never seen any Business/Company so "CONFUSING"!!! I certainly hope this will IMPROVE SOON!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire MORE (& more competant??), Office Employees. Give SOME KIND of pre-training to your new hires that work in homes, etc. Get better ORGANIZED ... & appear more PROFESSIONAL!! THANK YOU!!

    I worked at Visiting Angels

    Pros

    What Visiting Angels does is wonderful- the services they provide are so necessary and valuable.

    Cons

    Not all Visiting Angels offices are run so poorly- this particular office is 2 years old and really needs someone who is committed to the mission of this company. There was no effective communication from the owner of this agency and policies and procedures changed almost daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To focus on the mission of your company- to be fair to all employees and to properly compensate employees for the work they do. Set your policies and then abide by them

    Good temporary job due to low weekly hours available.

    Pros

    Management is easy to contact and works with employees to correct any problem issues.

    Cons

    Don't offer enough weekly hours which makes it hard to survive if you are self supporting and you have to sign a no competition clause so you can't look for extra work at any other agencies.
