    Former Employee - Home Care Provider  in  Smithville, TX
    Former Employee - Home Care Provider in Smithville, TX

    I worked at Girling Health Care part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Starting pay was $8.00 an hour, which is more than some other home healthcare agencies will pay.

    Cons

    I was recruited and hired over the phone, didn't meet anyone or sign any papers until my first day with the client, which seemed a little off.

    I have been working at Girling Health Care part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here is that I am able to help those in need and that is what is rewarding.
    I enjoy putting smile on someone's face.

    Cons

    Is being able to work with different type of people and listen to their past stories it is history.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be able to available for their employees. Need to keep their word when discussing pay. I believe we are all created equally and should be treated as such. Respect each other regardless of Title.

    Former Employee - Director  in  Rolla, MO
    Former Employee - Director in Rolla, MO

    I worked at Girling Health Care full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Peers did support one another and provide support during difficult times. Once at a certain level, work schedule can be flexible/ability to work at home when children are sick. Learned how a leader should NOT act/behave

    Cons

    Poor orientation
    poor benefits
    poor leaders
    lack of support from upper management
    poor role models
    hypocritical (leaders verbalize quality is most important when in actuality what they ask you to do provides poor quality)
    questionable ethics
    lack of understanding of different state policies/regulation when working with Medicaid
    Money/profit is THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR - employees are disposable.
    leaders use profanity liberally when talking to direct reports

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start practicing what you preach. If you preach quality, then give the staff/direct leaders time to develop quality improvement measures and the tools they need to improve quality

    If patient care is of upmost importance then allow patient care to be important.

    stay up on current research

    don't speak in derogatory tones/language to reports

    don't use profanity when speaking to reports

    don't preach to have a work/life balance and then have expectations that require a 60-70 hour work week
