I worked at A Place for Mom

Pros

Being an eldercare advisor is amazing - great personal satisfaction helping a family go from a nightmare to a resolution. The education you will receive, if you are hungry and look for it, is amazing.

Cons

No money. Micro-managed. Too many hats to wear so that you become a jack of all trades and a master of none, a telephone system that is a joke, 50 - 60 hours a week but you can only claim 40 which, if I'm 100% commission, why do you need my hours anyway? No respect from Sr Management. You're easily expendable. No loyalty from mgmt at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

How about you pounding the phones for about 2 months just like I did every day before you start telling me how to do my job better? How about walking a mile in my shoes at 100% commission - not your inflated salary, with the same technology I have to work with, with all the hats I have to wear - do that for about 2 months and let's see how successful you are - EARN MY RESPECT.

    I worked at A Place for Mom

    Pros

    Growing industry and good solid training for a future career path...but not with APFM

    Cons

    Terrible compensation for the amount of work involved. The quotas have been set way too high and all the creativity and accomplishment has been removed from the position. Management says they are listening, but most of us felt very mislead and many good people are leaving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wouldn't listen

    Pros

    You will learn industry terms so that you may obtain a professional position elsewhere.

    Cons

    The job is totally misrepresented. The leads they provide are impossible to turn into moves. Mostly Medicaid due to poor lead sourcing yet they keep telling you to "work" them. Before hiring you are told all leads are provided and then learn that you must find your own leads to get paid.
    POOR benefits - no vacation pay, 10 cents per mile (industry others pay 55 cents), 55 to 60 plus hours that you are forced to record as 40, goals keep increasing while pay decreases or is impossible to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to the field staff who pay your salary.
