Good Learning Experience

Care Giver (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA

ProsMeet new people. help the elderly. Get a pay check. Learn something new

ConsYou use your own vehicle. Some of the people are mean to work for. Your a contractor with the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis company is a good way to earn a little extra money but you have to go through finger printing as well. There are classes you have to take.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
