    Pros

    I am able to engage my clients emotional and be able to bring comfort to them. The ability to make a difference in their lives.

    Cons

    There is disconnect between management and caregivers. You get connected to the clients and it is very difficult part ways most of the times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should engage employees to discuss issues that would be of mutual benefit to both parties.

    I worked at Right at Home part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed helping other people.

    Cons

    I worked at right at home for one year. I started out making $8 hr. I had a lot of split shift. Management was rude and and does not care one bit about their employees or their well being or safety. I was put in dangerous situations that had nothing to do with my job.They cheated me out of mileage. They also cut your hrs for spite. No insurance!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees. Owner needs new office manager and staff.

    Pros

    Right At Home will tailor your schedule to your needs. They will call you for any fill ins. They offer plenty of trainings both in the office and on-line. They ask for a minimum of four hours notice if you cannot make your shift. This gives them time to find someone else to fill your spot. After all this business is all about the clients and their needs.

    Cons

    There are a lot of one hour jobs so if that is all they have to offer it isn't worth going. Sometimes they can have several one hour jobs in a row. That works better. Sometimes their communication is not that good but it is definately getting better with text messaging and email alerts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice to give management. I believe they are doing a good job. The only thing they might want to consider is the experience of the worker and what the client's needs are. Sometimes they have sent a worker to a client who needs to be lifted by hoyer and the employees has never used a hoyer before. It would be helpful for everyone if the employee was trained on how to use a hoyer before being sent to someone needing that service.

    I worked at Right at Home full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Honestly nothing. I learned 2 new types of software and met some interesting people. 2 I've remained friends with after being let go. None of us were happy there (*see below)

    Cons

    Training (for office staff and caregivers) consists of watching videos about the company for a week straight. That's it. Absolutely NO hands-on-training.

    The benefits are even worse. They offer a few options, then told several of us "that is no longer available" and ironically it was the option that made us pay more.

    The pay is TERRIBLE. This is for office staff and caregivers alike. NO room for growth.

    The owners keep making changes to management, but the real issue is that they keep firing people at or before their 90 day trial period. They should instead focus on training people properly, with better feedback to the employees (in writing) of what is expected of them and what needs to change. Sadly, they just blame the lack of their company getting better on those they hire- rather than taking a hard look inward at themselves. For example, they've let go 9 people since July. This is out of a staff of 14 people in the office.

    Office INFESTED WITH COCKROACHES!!! I thought this was a HEALTH care company??

    The owners leave the office with a sense of entitlement - making others feel like they aren't able to voice their concerns or good ideas without major repercussions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Train employees better rather than just watch movies during the first week.
    *Take employees (yes, a field trip) to some of the places they'll be going (centers where many clients are), TEACH them how their positions each affect those clients.
    *Don't blame the management you've put in place, blame yourselves. BE REALISTIC with your expectations and in how much work you give to each individual.
    *You are setting everyone (including yourselves and your company) up for failure by forcing too much of a work load on each person and wondering why it isn't getting done.
    *Customer satisfaction matters, but so does employee satisfaction. Give better benefits, pay rates, incentives and bonuses. Maybe try giving positive feedback (along with negative of course) so people can better themselves and stop feeling they're rats in a cage.

    **There is NO work/life balance. You are REQUIRED to be at the ready in ANY position (office or caregiver) if you work here, even if it is your day off. They will still call and get upset with you that you weren't around to do whatever they wanted. Interesting theory really. Ever wonder why your employees are so burned out?
