    I worked at Maxim Healthcare Services as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I received a ton of experience, a good education on everything related to home healthcare. The entry level pay was better than anywhere else I applied. The hours are very flexible, and the staff is nice and helpful with any problems you have. They always seemed to call to ask if I wanted to pick up and they always have plenty of pick up hours available which is cool if you want to pick up extra money here and there.

    Cons

    The initial hiring process is a marathon of signing and education, before you begin working. When I was a new nurse the training was welcomed but the paperwork is monotonous and just downright brutal... The pay level didn't change during my time there, but this may have been my fault for not asking to get a raise, but you would assume there would be some sort of pay increase the longer you are there automatically - but there wasn't. Sometimes the calls to pick up hours can be annoying, when you are having some personal time with your family and you are receiving calls deemed as urgent, and you break away just to find out they want you to pick up hours kinda sucks sometimes. The RN supervisors seem to nitpick a little on various minor things regarding documentation or things that aren't very pertinent to care. You have monthly evaluations and you are required to complete monthly CEUs on their website (free) and sometimes meetings are called that are just borefests with no real content, but these things go along with the job really... I experience these things alot as an LPN.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a good job! But I would recommend, for someone like me, you may want to evaluate how to give employees incentive to work long term with your company, otherwise most will only look at their employment with Maxim as a stepping stone to a more fulfilling, permanent position with obtainable benefits and pay increases that are satisfying.

    I worked at Maxim Healthcare Services

    Pros

    Helping people was a good perk. It was nice to consistently overcome hurdles and objectives and solver challenging problems. It kept me very busy.

    Cons

    Being on call 24 hours a day to handle any issues that come up, compensation is low for that amount of office time and out of office time one must contribute to the job.

    Pros

    There's no pressure if you don't feel comfortable with the family you will be working for they want you to tell them to find you a better fit. The office staff is always pleasant and always looking for ways to get you more hours if needed, and keep your special skill set in mind when it comes to coordinating care. Weekly pay is also a bonus !

    Cons

    Long hiring process, but it is worth it.

    Team environment, making a difference.

    Cons

    Long hours, heavy workload, lower pay, little appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate and invest in your future, don't disrespect and ignore us and treat us as "bottom feeders." Put your money where your mouth is, all this talk of changes yet a lack of timeframe in sight.

    Pros

    If they like you and you can play the game, you get work.

    Cons

    be aware: they qualify you for insurance and all other benes weekly, yes, weekly. If your client is hospitalized or finishes services, by the time they find you work, your benes have been cancelled, then ave to wait up to 5 weeks for reinstatement. You will spend more time without benes than with them., Constantly hiring more field employees, but not enough shifts to go around to give nurses a 40 hr week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer a realistic healthcare plan and make pay rates competitive, those of us in the field do know what all the agencies pay their nurses.and you are very close to the bottom of the list. PTO before 5 yrs, your company needs to spend money on retention incentives that are realistic and obtainable, it just might inspire loyalty and reduce turnover
