    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you pay milage pay it from start of day to patient and back. Not just if you take them out. And pay it seperately on a while other check once a month. That woukd help tremendously!

    Pros

    Good hours when you need them, gracious warmhearted clients

    Cons

    Something that is needed, that is essential are gas vouchers. Often clients are located in vast outlying areas that require much more gas than normal and paydays are only twice monthly. Being able to use gas vouchers and have the amount subtracted from a paycheck may allow a care giver to be able to accept more or additional clients when trying to fill work hour weeks to 40 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because wages tend to be on a lower scale, additional bonuses and other monetary incentives would be a good thing.

    Pros

    The company makes sure you are trained and really know your stuff! They stand behind their employees 100% and time of day or night. Employees get a say in who they work with and when.

    Cons

    The pay scale is a little low unless you have your CNA. The compan is a franchise therefor there can be differing pay scales from one location to the next. One place wanted to charge me a MANDATORY $10 for a company shirt that you dont even have to wear and a paper badge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sacramento CA management is the BEST. Portland area is lacking.
