    Pros

    All you need is a GED to be eligible for the job. Paid training, paid holidays, mileage reimbursement, on-time payments. There were opportunities for advancement and often people were promoted from within (though the higher-level jobs usually required more than a GED).

    Cons

    The training was two weeks full time, but then almost nothing I learned in the training applied to the work. I never did receive my CPR certificate from the initial training. It didn't feel like a real job. I picked the client up at his house and drove around 30 hours a week with the client doing things like going to the gym, the library, malls, fast-food restaurants - wherever he wanted to go. I tried to interact with him and use some of the training, but all he wanted to do was play on his iphone. I went to the office for monthly meetings and that was about it for contact with the rest of the staff. The supervisor would respond to text messages but let emails go unanswered.

    Pros

    Good benefits,decent health insurance,paid holidays and 401K matching.

    Cons

    Very dishonest corporate culture. Had employees putting in false data of number of clients served and jobs obtained. President clueless as to what vice-presidents were doing. Hiding problems and covering up major blunders.Store managers mistreating employees and disabled people. Work loads unevenly assigned. Much hostility among workers.

    Advice to Management

    Vice-presidents need to fire themselves and store managers and get competent ones.
