    I worked at Comfort Keepers part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working with clients and their families was a very rewarding part of this job. You feel like you make a difference. It is sometimes difficult but when you are with the same clients regularly, you build trust. Must be dependable and work hard.

    Cons

    Pay is not great in this field. Also worked in the office. Very nice people but a bit unorganized. Felt like most of the people working there really cared about what they were doing.

    I have been working at Comfort Keepers part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This company, during your interview, will ask what you can/cant do and what you are comfortable with, they will never place you with a client that is out of your comfort zone or availability.

    Cons

    The pay is low and there is always traveling, your schedule changes week to week and you may not get even 20 hours in one week sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To try to evaluate the rate/hours, sometimes the pay is not worth it considering you do not guarantee hours and there is so much commuting and inconvenience.

    Pros

    I like to help the elderly. There is always a variety in each assignment. The office staff is very nice and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Not enough hours. Pay isn't very high. Locations are sometimes far limiting the number of assignments you can have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give your employees more hours

    I have been working at Comfort Keepers part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Good philosophy and mission statement
    -flexible
    - for the most part management is genuine

    Cons

    - Scheduling is a nightmare and changes all the time
    - time sheets for each client that you have to go turn in, no email or app for logging time
    - Often miscommunications between manager and care coordinator

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some help!! Hire a part time assistant to help with everyday office procedures; answering phones, typing letters, checking time sheets for payroll and scheduling. Do some marketing so you can have more opportunities for your employees.

    I have been working at Comfort Keepers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, flexible scheduling, compassionate staff. Sometimes they offer group rates for organizations like AFLAK and Legal Shield.

    Cons

    Pay for experienced, skilled employees could be better. AFLAK is available, but it does not appeal to me, especially with the current wage. No benefits, no paid days off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has a lot to offer in work culture, understanding, flexibility with scheduling and more. I think it would be advantageous to offer investment options for employees who stay over 1 year. Provide some benefits like paid vacation time for those who have qualified (i.e. employed with a good record for over a year). Offer better pay for long time employees.

    I have been working at Comfort Keepers part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Your supposed to get the choice on when your available.

    Cons

    The pay and management is horrible. Your promised 50 cent raises after 90 days and a year but your lucky if you'll see that or get the whole 50 cent raises. Most people i know only got the 25 cents. You don't get paid enough to do what you are paid to do.

    This company is NOTORIOUS for denying workman comp claims and then firing you shortly afterward. (This coming from a representative that deals with a lot of workman comp claims from Comfort Keepers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get better employees for management.

    Pros

    I enjoy home health and my clients

    Cons

    Horrible management. The company only cares about making money. The pay is horrible. 1 raise in 3 years! They treat clients horrible too! Schedule is a mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't care about the clients well being your in the business!
