    I have been working at Partners In Care full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of cases. Impressive office.

    Cons

    Nepotism rules. Befriending supervisors determines hours offered and whether you will be sent to work in clean vs filthy conditions. I don't always have time to empty my bag at end of shift to search for bed bugs and roaches. RNs assess and diagnose but HHAs must be prepared to take the heat for reporting filth, that client is able to do for self and issues with ambulating and transferring missed or ignored by RNs and PTs. The city wants their cake and eat it too. Cheaper to keep client at home even it is the most unsafe option when Medicaid declines to approve proper equipment. The money fraud made the NY Times (our sister agency The Visiting Nurse Services of NY) but the safety issues not addressed. PIC management made changes, but may be too late. Unprofessional behavior to us HHAs is greenlighted by some in management, with the VNSNY stamp of approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We HHAs are the eyes and ears of the homecare industry. When the city and homecare team set some cases up with primary agenda to save or make money, problems will continue. We can be assets instead of part of the problem.

    Pros

    Very well known home health aid agency

    Cons

    The receptionist has a attitude problem
    Some of the nurses teaching in the training program have an attitude also
    When you complete the training program and the last test is too see what you know at the nurseing home and the nurses there talk to you mean and make you nervous to the point that you dont pass and have to do the training all over again
    The Cordinators when you call in for a case speak to you very nasty also!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re Train your staff on how to talk and deal with people!!!

    There is a reason why Partners In Care has a high turn over rate. They aren't as great as they claim to be.

    I worked at Partners In Care part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -This job will mainly work for you if you have open availability and don't mind working in boroughs
    besides your own.

    -You have little/no responsibility in your life and can deal with (as little as 2 hour cases) they may give you.

    -Great benefits.

    Cons

    -You go through 3 weeks of training (putting every thing aside in your life), only to officially be hired and
    feel
    as if you STILL do not have a job because there are few assignments available.

    -A great majority of the time it is almost impossible to reach a coordinator.
    Lets just say there is an emergency situation or you are looking to be assigned to
    a new case, you will spend 30 minutes on end waiting for a coordinator to answer.
    If you're LUCKY by the end of the 30 minutes, they actually do answer.

    -You have to constantly call Partners In Care looking for a new case.
    They WILL NOT call you.

    -Cases open and close within a heart beat. There will be times you have jobs, and then there will
    be times you feel as if you are out of one.
    If you need stability in your life...this is NOT the job for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Have coordinators that actually RETURN calls when they say they will.
    -Have coordinators that are more available to the home health aides.
    -Have coordinators call and offer cases to aides that are in need of them.

    Pros

    The pay was good, there is always work available, and the hours are actually really good. Also they have other opportunities and training's you can do to advance with the company or make a few more dollars.

    Cons

    The main challenge with this job is that you never know who you're going to be working with patient wise. Other than that its not so bad.

    I worked at Partners In Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Its a job
    -The company provides great service to the community
    - If you want a job where you work 2-3 hrs overtime every day and don't get paid for it this is the job for you
    -If you want a job where working weekends are mandatory this is the job for you

    Cons

    There is a lack of professionalism. For example I heard a manager and coworker openly say disparaging things abut homosexuality . They seem to hire mostly their family members from Guyana. You'll find it strange that the majority of people who work there found work immediately after coming from Guyana. If your not one of them the company employs you for 2-3 years and then try and get rid of you. Just enough time so you can add to their retirement fund and not receive anything out of it. Upper management cares little when informed about nepotism and discrimination and anyone who speaks up about is mysteriously fired one way or another. This company does not value hard work and suggestions on how to make things run efficiently. To add to that it was one of the most bigoted environments I ever had to work in. Many Supervisors treat the home health aides disrespectfully and there is a lack of human decency for them at Partners in Care. For example, I seen supervisors assign an home health aides to home infested with bed bugs without telling them just so they leave out to work on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No room to advance. Most Mangers did not go to college but are related to someone there. Upper management is mostly all White and separate themselves. Ironically a few of the supervisors have a BA or Masters but are severely underpaid.

    Pros

    If your willing to work with the hours they have great.

    Cons

    Rude employees. Don't give you much info on 1199. Hours a limited and they don't work with you. You have to work with whatever they give you, there's no compromise. Low pay even with the minimum wage being raised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating employees with respect.
