    Pros

    Job reliability, however, everything depends on one's client or resident

    Cons

    This is a leave-in job and you are expected to be at post 24/7. Thus, no time fun.

    Pros

    Great company...of course depends on each individual office. But my office works with me, has lots clients and helps me through any issues I need resolved with clients or pay.

    Cons

    You are considered self employed so no benefits or taxes taken out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Griswold Home Care full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    10.50/hr, before taxes.
    I bonded well with my client.
    Writing "currently employed" on my resume got me more job offers in a week than I'd had in 4 months since I graduated with my BS, every week. I waited until someone made a good enough offer, and now I'm leaving.

    Cons

    I worked 6 days a week sometimes.
    They could never find a substitute, even with advance notice.
    They "forgot" to tell me I needed my CNA licence, refused to comp me for any classes or testing which runs $1200.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want quality caretakers, you must pay appropriately. Otherwise you'll continue to be "stuck" with flakey potheads, illegal immigrants, and welfare baby mamas.

    I have been working at Griswold Home Care full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had the same clients for a year and i love them. you can take days off and not have to find coverage.if you are not comfortable doing certain things with/for your client this is not held against you. client pays you at the end of your shift normally. you make your own scheldule

    Cons

    there are no benefits or PTO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when multiple staff work in a house on going then i think there should be a responsibility sheet because not everybody does what they are suppose to do.

    I worked at Griswold Home Care as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Not much but clients pay less than other traditional ways. This a hybrid way of contract between Business and Clients leaving most aspects of dealing to caregivers. Private clients pay workers directly but they are taking a big risk with IRS.

    Cons

    They are in Franchise Business to help(sell & train) anyone to start a referral service and keep taking 33% Finder's fee from clients & caregivers (independent contractors). Brand new branches advertise themselves as 30 years in business. Workers have to deal with their own taxes (about 30% of income)as a self-employee but many of them don't pay 'cause they can't afford.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if they are non-medical care agencies, each branch owner should know about Health Care Laws in each State.

    I worked at Griswold Home Care as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The referrals were geared towards making a good match with client and caregiver. Griswold cares about giving their customers and employees the best care possible.

    Cons

    Some jobs may only last for a short while, and that can be sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing.

    I worked at Griswold Home Care full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Close to home, ability to work from home when necessary.

    Cons

    Expected to use your own vehicle for transportation of home care workers, alot of wear and tear on your car. No healthcare benefits offered. Received many after hours phone calls from management when not on-call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If office staff is expected to transport workers then a company vehicle should be provided.

    I have been working at Griswold Home Care as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    flexible hours and you can choose the jobs you want, and if for some reason you don't like it you don't have to go back. most clients are very helpful and friendly and I've never had a problem getting paid from a client.

    Cons

    communication between caregivers and management are sometimes poor, and getting enough hours to fill your week when you need them. another con is it is all private pay through the client so no taxes are taken out, you are on your own to file them and pay the amount that would be due.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between caregivers and management and a little more helpful at times to fill your caregivers hours they need.
