    I worked at Addus Healthcare part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked there for two years and first had a really crappy case manager and then a really great one. Just depends and it seems it changes often. The rest of the staff was awesome. They do try to make sure you enjoy your clients and there's always opportunities to pick up shifts.

    Cons

    Some of the clients can be frustrating. Some of them are really great and easy too though. Can be kind of difficult to get time off and you have to keep reminding them to have some one cover your shift.

    I have been working at Addus Healthcare part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Addus provides the opportunity to pick my own hours to work, which in turn allows me to still be a full-time Mom!

    Cons

    A down side to working this type of job is that working w/ the elderly, you never know from day to day if they will be in the hospital or other facility for an undetermined length of time or even pass away suddenly. Not only is it a difficult thing to watch, it can be very bad for the paycheck.
