    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 Management

    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.

    Payrate.
    Mandatory Meetings that were not paid for.
    They lost the school cases.
