    Pros

    I've been working for this company on a part-time basis as a speech-language pathologist for several months now. They are very supportive of their employees. I just wish they'd pay a higher hourly rate, but I think their rate of pay is pretty much on par with that of other healthcare contracting companies

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    This is my first year working as a contract employee. The staff at ProCare has made the transition from a district employee in Wisconsin to a contract employee in the state of Washington about as painless as one could expect. There has been a lot to learn, from how to post hours to signing up for healthcare and more. In every instance, questions were answered promptly. And though I know I asked some things to be explained in more detail than a typical employee, I never got the impression that I was annoying anyone with all the questions. They have been prompt in answering questions and helping smooth out any bumps in the road. Compensation has been nice, and ProCare has listened to what I determined to be important factors in the job I wanted.

    Cons

    The one drawback is that healthcare does not extend past your current contract. Hence, no coverage for the summer between jobs. A lot to learn the first time you work a contact assignment.

    Pros

    -Strong commitment to each therapist that comes on board. Recruiters work hard to find people their ideal jobs and offer support throughout the assignment. -Many therapists renew their contracts year after year which is a positive indicator! -Clear intentions set by management for the team as a whole and for each individual. Everyone has a clearly defined purpose and goals. -Pleasant, social environment. It's clear that everyone gets along nicely and enjoys interacting as a team. -Compensation is what I was looking for

    Cons

    -Contract agencies cannot always find people the perfect job. Sometimes, therapists will have to take a second choice or even third choice job. -It's also important to remember that experiences can differ for each therapist based on the school they are placed with and the recruiter that they work with. -Finally, I would say that therapists should remember that with ProCare (as with all contract agencies) positions are generally 9 months (sometimes less) with possibility of renewal. This can be a perfect set-up for getting a foot in the door in a particular setting, but it's a good thing to keep in mind if you are looking for something more long-term

    Pros

    The best thing about ProCare is the team itself. In my experience, the people who work at ProCare genuinely enjoy working together and supporting each other. The company is ideal for school therapists who are flexible with location or who work in a specialized discipline. ProCare Therapy has great benefit packages for therapists who might consider relocating for an assignment. If you are interested in multiple locations, check with ProCare Therapy first before applying directly with a district. ProCare Therapy can pay for relocation, help with obtaining a license, and can provide a housing stipend for candidates who qualify.

    Cons

    As a therapist or traveler, you can get a completely different experience depending on which recruiter you work with. Since the team is constantly growing, you might end up working with a brand new recruiter and your assignment might not run as smoothly.

    Pros

    The woman who recruited me was very pleasant and the process was easy. The hourly pay offered was not great, but not horrible, and benefits were available. The process of logging your hours was very simple.

    Cons

    ProCare does not honor the contracts it signs, and does not protect employees from bad working conditions. I signed a contract to work for a particular district from mid-September to the end of the school year. I was told I would be filling in for one teacher while she was on leave, but instead, I was assigned to work at two schools, doing a job that had been filled the previous year by two teachers (a full time and a half time). In addition, while there were two half-time aides for this caseload last year, I was assigned one aide who worked with my students three hours a day. I did not have a room to work in, and sometimes had to go from room to room looking for a place to see my students. My assigned caseload was higher than the legal limit for resource specialists in California. It was an unworkable situation. I asked for help many times. When the kids didn't get their services and parents and teachers complained, I was terminated without explanation or a chance to defend myself. In short, the district was allowed to avoid blame by blaming me instead. ProCare never discussed this with me; the company simply started advertising for a replacement. The contract apparently is meant to bind the employee, but not the employer. I also haven't received pay stubs for my pay checks which were automatically deposited, or my W-2 form, even though it's February.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow the people you recruit to be used as a disposable workforce by schools looking to save money, or looking for a quick fix.

    Pros

    Sorry, cant think of one...

    Cons

    Do not work for this agency!!! To make a long story short, I was completely abandoned by ProCare Therapy..... While work on an assignment, severs weather had set in and the schools were closed for two weeks, and predicted a longer closer. Procare literally cut all my monies off...I was fine with the hourly, but they stripped me from my stipends while still under contract. The school was great and was more than willing to pay for all the snow days...Procare declined, and as a traveler, I had never been so abandoned. If they were smart they would have at least paid my stipends which is your survival money...and wait the storm out and just simply honor the contract and continue to work until the catch up was met at the schools.... It gets worse, I do not recommend this agency!

    Advice to Management

    Be more ethical and understanding to travelers when an unforeseen disaster happens and take care of your travelers.Also, I recommend you work on your communication skills and hire more competent recruiters with some life's experience and mostly be honest to your travelers1

    Pros

    ProCare is the best place I've ever worked. I actually look forward to going to work each day because I like the people I work with and what I do. The earning potential is high and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The expectations of the managers can be a little intimidating at the the beginning. 75 calls in a day is definitely challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
