    Pros

    The St. Cloud area office has a great team.
    Always willing to work with me and my schedule despite being a full-time college student and having internships.
    Treat their employees well and proud to say I was once a member of their team!

    Cons

    There are only con's to this job if you are unwilling to have realistic expectations about working with our aging population.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should review franchises to make sure each location is living up to expectations more thoroughly. I transferred to a different office for a while after I moved because I enjoyed the company and was hoping to have the same great experience. The second location I was at was very unprofessional, did not treat their clients or caregivers with as much respect so I left shortly after I started.

    Pros

    Learned lots with hands on experience and really enjoyed all the new people I got to meet.

    Cons

    Low pay for a very stressful job. This job is not for everyone. However the job can be very rewarding for those who enjoy caregiving.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees more. Others will be more likely to stay if they have a better relationship with management

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Really nice being able to help seniors that need companionship and assistance. Good for part time work, either as light second income or while attending school.

    Cons

    Hours are not steady. Clients and work hours are constantly changing. Pay is not great. Not really a career job, not much advancement opportunities.
