- Employees are friendly - Fairly relaxed working environment - Good work/life balance for most employees
- This is a franchise with over 600 units that has been operating for almost 20 years, yet it is still run like it was started five years ago. - There's a severe lack of resources because even though the business is clearly making money hand over fist, that money isn't working its way into hiring the number of people and providing the type of resources the company needs to truly thrive. (Save a penny, lose a dollar mentality) - This is the reason that turnover is through the roof. Other than the sales team, it's mostly really young people and older people, which is highly indicative of their priorities. You would be hard pressed to find anyone who stays longer than five years. - At times there seems to be a real lack of vision and long-term planning. - The health insurance is really weak. I could find cheaper insurance on the exchange than I was offered here. - First year time off offered is ridiculous. It picks up after that, but don't let them fool you into thinking you're going to get two weeks off in your first year.
Advice to Management
Retaining knowledgeable employees is more important than you seem to think. It's discouraging to look around and not see a single person in my department who has been there for more than 4 or five years. Think about the longevity of the business before the immediacy of the sale.
Getting an Interview

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Home Helpers (Ohio) in November 2013.
Received a phone call for an interview within 2 days, the interview was more of an introduction to the company, it seems like if you're interviewed, you're automatically hired. That was my experience anyway. They just told me about the work and asked if I was interested. They had me come to a one day orientation/training day, and began finding clients to match me up with. It took about a month to fill up my days with consistent clients. But that did not last.
I was unable to negotiate pay.
