    I worked at Help at Home part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    getting to meet new people

    Cons

    EVERYTHING!! There are too many "people in charge" and they are all very rude if you do not do as they say when they say to do it. It was over a month of bull to get hired. You are NOT paid for one entire day that they have orientation. They do NOT pay you for the day when you have to go to Corydon to show that you can give a bed bath. They tell you they have clients that are close to you, but the closest one they gave me was 25 miles one way. They get mad if you do not want to drive 25-30 miles each way to work only two hours! They say that you do not have to give any medications but give you clients that are not able to give medications to themselves. The pay is NOT up to par with what you have to do. I worked for them a month and still was not sure who my "boss" was. They would call me and then get crappy and sometimes hang up on me if I would not take clients that were far away. They were nice sometimes but then would get mean very quickly. If you work here then you need to be OK working for bipolar, PMS women!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve pay!!! Give employees respect if you want them to respect you!!! Give employees clients that are CLOSE to them or do not hire as many home health aides if you do not have any clients in their home area!!

    I worked at Help at Home full-time (more than a 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.
