    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The management staff are amazing. They are very attentive to your needs. They are very organized. They answer your questions promptly and everything is done in an organized manner. The company doesn't take patients that are not made for home health, and thus you don't have to worry about dealing with nursing home type patients in their own.

    Cons

    I work there is a home health aide and the pay isn't the best. (11.00)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care

    Pros

    I'm not really sure, they have a pretty nice office I guess. Free parking and the cafeteria serves good food

    Cons

    It's a weird cult. I half expected them to break out the kool-aid at some point. You are expected to adhere to the "fashion police" (no, seriously).. They honestly think God created the business to make his chosen people rich.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously, you're not a charity doing god's work, you're a for profit business that hires minimum wage workers, works the crap out of them, and charges families five times what you pay your staff.

    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The Scheduling staff is well organized and considerate of the Caregiver's availability. The requests to fill in last minute shifts is with full regard to the Clients needs and the option given the Caregivers to Fill In is truly optional. I understand that flexibility is needed when last minute demands are offered. I know I can say No without explaining myself.

    Cons

    After completing 90 days of shift work I would appreciate the consideration of increased hourly wage. Also I would appreciate feedback from Management on my performance to be able to advance and/or obtain increased wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please activate a review process for the Caregivers to know their performance on the job and the opportunity to advance in both pay and job description. I feel this will improve not only performance but acknowledgement is always appreciated and improvement goals would be established as needed.
