    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.

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

    Pros

    I really can't think of any pros, not at the Somerset, Kentucky branch anyway.

    Cons

    They didn't care how they scheduled their staff, as long as the clients were covered so they would get their money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being a little kinder and considerate towards your staff. You might need to be taken care of one of us some day.

    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

    - 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.

    Former Employee - Home Care Aide in Raleigh, NC

    I worked at Comfort Keepers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good to help people when they are sick and need care

    Cons

    Low salary, no benefits, no raises, no vacation days, clients are usually far away and no gas allowance is given. I asked another person from another agency what she earned and she said $13/hr. Comfort Keepers started me at $9/hr and I never got a raise in 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better and give benefits and raises to good employees.
