I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Ability to meet the needs of elderly and their loved ones. A feeling of making a difference. Satisfaction when the clients are happy with a job well done and voice the gratitude.

Cons

A lot of travel and wear and tear on your vehicle. Sometimes the hours are not as many as I would like. The cost of gas cuts into the paycheck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Arrange appointments so that the down time is not so far between that it kills off your day. Split shifts are not enough hours to keep good employees around.

    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Clients of this franchise get great care. There are a lot of excellent, dedicated caregivers working here. The company offers paid training, health insurance and dental, and a matching 401K. The office is decent and you are given the tools needed to do the job. Clients of this franchise will get good service.

    Cons

    Cons: Owner and management of this company treat the caregivers with kid gloves, but office staff is micro-managed. Top management records every mistake employees make, no matter how trivial, and holds it against them. There is daily pressure to reach performance quotas not mentioned in the job description (not for a sales position because sales positions do not exist here). Such pressure forces you to compete with co-workers you would rather work with as a team. There is never any praise for a job well done given by the owner to any of the office staff, at least not that I ever heard. You only get a half hour for lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Management: Stop counting every mistake and instead focus only on the truly important ones. The way you do things now, you simply wear people down. Your high-pressure tactics and condescending management style only make employee performance worse. Consider taking some classes or going to seminars on how to successfully motivate employees and keep them happy. Motivated, happy employees perform better.
