Application Details

The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Amedisys in February 2009.

Interview Details

An on-line application is submitted & then you are contacted by phone for a scheduled "in person" interview..... you go to the interview & talk/ interview with the director, the rehab contact person & then you are told right then that you have the job & when can you start????? ( like they are" in a hurry" to get you "on board"). They are "very personable & friendly" at first & even "act" concerned regarding helping you to get your health insurance started for your family "ASAP". You then sit in the office & read manuals for 3-4 weeks ( while you await an employee number ).... When it finally comes you are assigned a computer & then you ride with another staff member to be trained on the computer..... FINALLY you are " turned loose" on your own to see patients. You are required to have your activity sheets turned in by a certain time every AM. What they don't tell you when you interview is that the computer computes your mileage for you.. regardless of what miles you write down & actually drive( to & from patient homes) you will only be paid for what the computer miles add up to. ( Keep a good record of your mileage because you will have to "claim" your miles that you drive ( but do not get paid for) on your taxes at end of the year).

Negotiation Details
The director of the agency & the rehab director, as well as, a regional person all promise you the moon but when it comes down to the actual verbal promises "these people" all had amnesia after you accept the job & then ask about the promises made at the interview. I would advise anyone that accepts an offer of employment to have EVERYTHING in writing to clarify that what they tell you is what really happens in the future. The management is glad to promise you everything verbally & it is easy to get wht you say you need on the interview ...... but the " stickler" is actually having these people remember what they verbally promise you. Don't believe them----- PUT IN ON PAPER ( for your future reference & to keep amnesia from occurring ). Also "they" say it is a "great job" for you if you have kids ( flexibility is a plus ) HAVE THAT IN WRITING TOO..... heaven forbid if you have to rearrange your schedule ( to be a parent or to take your kids to the doctor or dentist ). Then they write you up & claim that you were never told the job was " flexible"... BE CAREFUL........ GET IN IN WRITING.
