    Began with a very low salary, no increase after a year of work. You get a 32hours of pay check every 6 months bonus.

    Pros

    Easy to get time off if you request it a few weeks in advance.
    If you're a new grad... you can at least get some work experience with this company.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. No salary increase. Hours not guaranteed... if your patient is away or in the hospital... and they can't find an assignment for you... you don't get paid. The salary paid a new grad LVN while in training is $ 10.00 per hour!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there will be no advancement... at least pay people better to give them a reason to stay with the company. Why have you company just be a stepping stone?

    We appreciate all that our LVN's and Caregivers do for us and our patients. We would love nothing more than reward our staff with higher pay but with recent Medi-Cal program cuts we just aren't able ... More

    I have been working at Assisted full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a Director, I enjoy seeing the staff working harmoniously together for the good of the residents. Work-life is best for the house when regional is out of the building.

    Cons

    Regional and corporate staffing to top heavy. Constant turn over in uppermanagement, it seems like every season they have a new system in place, until it fails. The company does not respect its employees, nor do they reward them. It seems to always be about what we didn't do to fill their expectations, and nothing about all the good we've accomplished. ALC has chosen to have each member of the trifecta team have this POWER to rule everything. I see this as a disaster waiting to happen, because the sales and nursing overstep their boundaries, due to the lack of understanding of the the entire picture, and try to lord over the direction of the house, which in turns causes strife between them and the Director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your Directors, and show them respect for their hardwork and dedication. Have the sales and nursing be required to answer to the Director, not the Director answering to them.

    This person posted their comments under the wrong company. We are Assisted Healthcare Services not ALC Assisted Living Concepts.

    I have been working at Assisted

    Pros

    Thank you to the individual that posted the review on May 2, 2011. They made some very valid points. Assisted does provide our employees an opportunity to gain experience and in some cases a additional training. As such our salaries may not reflect what other companies may offer a fully skilled person.

    Assisted is an agency based business. Like any service business, some weeks have more work than others. That is why we cannot guaranatee work.

    Lastly, being an agency is different than a hospital or skilled nursing facility. Our positions are exclusively based on the needs of the accounts that we accept. If 75% of our business is for health care aids than that is what we hire. There is no need for advancement if the job and business never change. Additionally, medicare/medicaid is very specific about what they reimburse for either per hour or per visit. As this hasn't changed for several years our pay rate per hour/visit has remained the same.

    We have a large number of employees that have been with us more than 10 years. While this person talked about some real issues we don't think they fully understood the nature of the business and how an agency works. We thank them for the input as feedback is always important.

    Cons

    We are limited by what the State and Federal Governments will provide.

    3. Supervisors handle complaints appropriately and timely
    4. Weekly pay checks

    I've worked with two other agencies in town and they were unprofessional and only cared about their profits. Assisted has always supported me and patient care is number one. Assisted is the only way to go.

    Cons

    1. Health insurance is expensive
