    Former Employee - Case Management in Schererville, IN

    I worked at Help at Home full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Able to work days for the most part.

    Cons

    Every day there were new "rules" depending on who you spoke to. Upper management and supervisors all lie both to your face and behind your back. Very unprofessional and unethical! Constantly told that your work is horrible. Poor morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to grow up and open your eyes and see what lies are being told under your nose. Need to treat all sides of the company equally and not "favor" certain sides. Need to get rid of your district manager for your Schererville office seeing that most problems stem from her.

    Have to be there one year before getting holiday pay and the insurance doesn't even qualify to meet Obama care

    Offer better insurance to your nurses and pay holiday pay after three months of employment.

    Pros

    The best reasons to me from working there were that I enjoy helping people and the pay was awesome. Besides that the wonderful advice from older people really helped me alot.

    Cons

    The main challenge was putting the client in the bathtub and getting them out. The next challenge was changing them when they went on themselves. Other than that everything was great!!!!

    The best thing is the flexibility of the company as far as the hours.

    Pros

    the hours are flexible, and you have a choice of working full, or part time.

    Cons

    some times a client might no longer may need your services, and to get a new one will take some time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they need to have a back up plan in those cases when an actual cient decides that our services are not need it any more, for us not to loosed hours, and pay.

    Current Employee - Administrative Staff in South Bend, IN

    I have been working at Help at Home full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, Some opportunity for growth and advancement within the company, Healthy, enjoyable work environment. Interesting and rewarding work. Since Help At Home has 17 offices in Indiana, as well as many others in a number of other states, there is also opportunity for transferring to other offices.

    Cons

    Some frustrations with communications from management - It's a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to suggestions for improving business operations from all staff - there should be an avenue for positive communications with senior management, not just for complaints. I would love to see Help At Home begin an Annual Branch Review. This would be a chance for senior management to have a better feel for what is really going on in the branches. When only one person has that communication, you may be getting a distorted view of what is or isn't going on. Hopefully it could be a positive thing, not intended for venting or complaining.
